What We Believe
We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct.
We believe there is one true God, eternally self-existent, “I AM” the creator of the universe. He has further revealed Himself as a triune being, manifested as the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, is the Son of God, the Second Person of the Godhead, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was wounded, crucified, died for the sin of mankind, was buried, resurrected on the third day, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father.
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Godhead, and the enabler of the church.
We believe that mankind was created in God’s image, and by voluntary transgression, fell short of the glory of God and mankind’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. This comes by confessing with one’s mouth and believing in one’s heart that God raised Jesus from the dead.
We believe that salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however our works are evidence of our faith.
We believe baptism in water is a declaration to the world that a believer has died with Christ and that they have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
We believe in ever-increasing faith, faith of the heart is based on hearing (spiritual understanding) of God’s Word and doing the Word. We please God by faith, we are saved by faith, we are justified by faith, we live and walk by faith, and we overcome the world by faith.
We believe in the ministry of the Angels, angels are ministering spirits sent forth to minister to those who inherit salvation.
We believe that all believers are entitled to and should earnestly expect and seek the promise of the Father and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to the command of Jesus Christ. With this comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of gifts and their uses in the ministry, and the evidence of fruit of the Spirit. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to that of the new birth.
