What We Believe:

1.  The Scriptures Inspired

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. (2Tim. 3:15-17; Jn. 17:17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12)

2.  The One True Godhead

The Triune Godhead is comprised of three (3) separate and distinct personalities, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self revealed and function as one entity.  Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary.  Jesus was crucified, died, and was buried. He rose from the dead.  He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor. (Mt. 3:16,17; Mt.17:5, Jn:14:26; Acts 7:55; Eph. 4:3-7; Heb. 1:1-3; 2Pet,1:16-18)

3.  The Salvation of Man

(a)    All have sinned and come short of the glory of God, and repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins. Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.  On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness, providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind (Psalm 103:3-4; Rom. 3:23; Lk. 13:2-5; Is. 53:3-5; Acts. 3:19; Romans 10:8-10.

(b)   The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation, is the direct witness of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16).  The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness.  (Rom. 6:22; I John 3:23).

(c)    Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however, our works will determine the rewards in eternity (Eph. 2:8; Romans 10:9-10 and II Cor. 5:10).

4.  Baptism

The ordinance of baptism should be observed as commanded by Jesus by all who have truly repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Him as Savior and Lord.  In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Romans 6:4).

5. The Lord’s Supper (Communion)

The ordinance of the Lord’s Supper (Communion) should be observed as commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ. (I Cor. 11:23-29)

6. The Promise of the Father (Baptism of the Holy Ghost)

All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek, the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Ghost, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ.  This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church.  With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 1Cor. 12:1-31). This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 2:1-38; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9).

The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service (Acts 1:8; 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2,6)

8.  The Resurrection

We believe that Jesus Christ will raise the dead in Christ first, then the believers who are alive will be caught up to be with the Lord, to be eternally with the Lord. (Rom. 8:11; I Cor. 15:51-52;  I Thess. 4:16-17;  II Thess. 2:1-2)

9.  Millennial Reign of Jesus

Jesus will return to earth with his saints to rule and reign for one thousand years (Romans 11:25, 27; 2 Thess. 1:7; Rev. 19:11-16; 20:1-7).

10. Eternity

We believe in eternal life with God for the righteous, and eternal separation from the Godhead in the lake of fire for the wicked. (John 6:58, 14:16;  Rev. 20:7-15; Rev. 22:5)
