What We Believe

What We Believe

This church accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all-sufficient rule for faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, adopts the following statement of fundamental truths:

The Scriptures

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

The Triune God

We believe that there is one God; eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

God the Father

God, as Father, reigns over His entire universe with providential care. He is all-powerful, all loving, all knowing and all wise.

God the Son

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in the blessed hope of His personal, visible, future return to this earth to receive to Himself His blood-bought church that it may be with Him forever.

God the Holy Spirit

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

Salvation

We believe in the redemptive work of Christ on the cross and that it provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.

Atonement for Sin

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.

The Believer Walk

We believe that, according to Acts 2:4, the baptism with the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, is given to Believers who ask for it. We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian enables them to live a holy life.

The Resurrection

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.

Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

We believe in water baptism by immersion and observance of the Lord’s Supper.
