Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe that there is one God; eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (I John 5:6-8)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (I Corinthians 15:3-4; I Peter 2:18-24; & John 3:16)

We believe that salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by good works or self-improvement. It has been provided through Jesus Christ for all mankind. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by our confession of faith in Him. (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:9-10)

We believe in baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of Jesus and is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:43; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39 )

We believe in baptism with the Holy Spirit, with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues, is given to Believers who ask for it.( Acts 2:4 )

We believe healing is provided in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and is available to every believer. (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17, Mark 16:18, John 5:6-14 I Peter 2:24)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that they are saved unto the resurrection of life; and that they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:24, 28 and 29)

We partake of the Lord’s Supper (Communion) for the purpose of remembering Christ until His return. (I Corinthians 11: 23-31)
