Basic Beliefs

What we believe…

This is not intended to cover everything we believe, but to identify our position on these vital Biblical truths.

 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21)

We believe there is One God eternally, existent in three persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, Luke 3:22, Ephesians 4:6)

We believe that in the beginning God created man innocent, pure, and holy, but through the sin of disobedience, Adam fell: hence by one man’s disobedience, Sin Entered into the World. (Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, 5:12)

We believe in repentance to God, confessing ourselves as sinners, receiving forgiveness through the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that our Redemption is through the blood of Jesus Christ and Regeneration of the Holy Spirit. (John 3:3-5, Acts 2:38-39, 11:18, 17:30, Romans 5:1, II Corinthians 5:15-21, Galatians 2:16, 3:13, I Peter 1:18-19, Titus 2:14, Revelations 5:9)

We believe in Water Baptism, by immersion, in the Name of Jesus according to His command into the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and that this baptism is commanded by Jesus and identifies the Believer with His death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, 10:48, 19:5)

We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues is for all believers. (Acts 2:4, 39)

We believe that true believers will live a Sanctified Life hating sin and loving to please the Lord. (II Corinthians 7:1, I John 3:2-3)

We believe that God is still the healer of His people, and that Jesus’ redemption provides Healing for the mind and body. (Exodus 15:26, Isaiah. 53:4-5, Mark 16:18, James 5:14-15, I Peter 2:24)

We believe that Jesus will appear in the clouds for the catching-away of the Bride (Rapture) and later return to the earth with His Saints to reign for 1000 years. (Acts 1:11, I Corinthians 11:26, Philippians 3:20, I Thessalonians 4:13-17, Revelations 20:4-6)

We believe that Christ is the Head over all things and that the Church is His Body. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Colossians 1:18-19)
