Our Beliefs

baptismStatement of Faith

  • That the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God’s Holy Spirit, are inerrant in the original writings, are the Word of God, and the final authority in all matters of life and death.
  • In one God, the Creator of man and all things, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost.
  • That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary.
  • That man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; that Adam’s sin is imputed to the whole race of mankind; that all human beings inherit a sinful nature when they reach the age of accountability and become sinners before God.
  • In the bodily crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection from the dead of Jesus Christ.  In His ascension into Heaven, and that He is the Head of the Church, Lord of the individual believer, High Priest over the House of God, and today is at the Right Hand of God as Savior, Intercessor and Advocate.
  • That Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe on and accept Him as savior are freely justified before God by the blood of Jesus Christ, are spiritually regenerated, and become born again.
  • That justification, regeneration, and the new-birth are possible only by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • That all who, by faith, receive Jesus Christ as their Savior are born again, are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, are new creatures in Christ, are baptized into the body of Christ and become the children of God.
  • That God is the Heavenly Father of those who trust in His Son, Jesus Christ, as Savior and that only those saved through faith in Christ receive eternal life in God’s kingdom.
  • In water baptism by immersion, and all who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.
  • That holiness is to be God’s standard of living for His people and that sanctification is a continuing process, through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ, the Word and the power of the Holy Ghost.
  • In the baptism in the Holy Ghost, subsequent to the new birth, and in exercising the spiritual gifts, as the Holy Spirit gives utterance, to the edifying of the believer and the body of Christ.
  • That divine healing is provided for all in the atonement of Jesus Christ.
  • In the partaking of the Lord’s Supper (Communion) by the saints of God, those who are born again.
  • In the personal, pre-millennial second coming of Jesus Christ.  First to resurrect the dead in Christ, and catch away the living saints to Him in the air.  Second, to set up His earthly kingdom and reign as King over all nations for a thousand years.
  • In eternal life in the kingdom of God for those who are saved; in glorified bodies, and in the eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire, for those who are unsaved.
