Our Beliefs

What We Believe

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God (II Timothy 3:16; Ephesians 3:5; II Peter 3:2).

God

We believe that there is only one God, who revealed Himself to humanity in the person of Jesus Christ. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Timothy 3:16; John 14:9)

Jesus Christ

We believe that salvation is only found in Jesus Christ and is appropriated to humanity by God’s grace through the New Testament new-birth experience. (Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8; John 3:3-7)

Salvation

We believe that the new-birth experience is comprised of repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit.  This is the New Testament pattern for all believers to follow as a result of their faith in Christ. (Acts 2:38; Luke 13:1-5; Acts 10:44-48Acts 19:5-6)

The Holy Spirit

We believe that when a person receives the baptism of the Holy Spirit, that person will speak with other tongues under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:4; Acts 19:6; Isaiah 28:11)   We believe that believers are called to live a holy, pure life before God and all humanity. (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Hebrews 12:14)

The Name of Jesus

The authority of God is vested in the Name of Jesus (Philippians 2:9-10; Matthew 7:22; Mark 16:7; John 14:14;: Acts 4:12). All that the believer does “in word or deed” is to be done in Jesus’ Name (Colossians 3:17). The Name of Jesus becomes our new “family name” (I Corinthians 1:12-15; Romans 6:4: II Corinthians 5:17), The authority of the Godhead is vested in the Name of Jesus (Philippian 2:9-10; Matthew 7:22; Mark 16:7; John 14:14;)!

The second Coming of Jesus Christ

We believe that the church will be raptured by Christ and will exist with Him forever in eternity. (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18; 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52; 1 Thessalonians 1:10)

Miracles

We believe that God’s power is still active in the church and that healings, signs, and miracles are available to God’s people through faith in Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 13:8; 1 Corinthians 2:4; 1 Peter 2:24)

We believe the Bible to be inspired of God, the infallible Word of God. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (II Timothy 3:16)

The Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore, all doctrine, faith, hope, and all instruction for the church must be based upon, and harmonize with, the Bible. It is to be read and studied by all men everywhere, and can only be clearly understood by those who are anointed by the Holy Spirit (I John 2:27). "No prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost" (I Peter 1:20-21

We believe the following...

  • There is only one God, as found in Deuteronomy 6:4. He is the creator of all heaven and earth, and every living creature. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit). 
  • In water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.  Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as found in Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11; and Acts 2:38.   
  • In the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign (evidence) of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, as found in Acts 2:4.
  • In the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and governs, as found in Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; and II Corinthians 12:1-11.
