What We Believe
We believe in the Bible as Godís only inspired,
inerrant and authoritative revelation of Himself to man in written
form (2 Timothy 3:16,17).
We believe in one God, eternally existing in
God the Father,
God the Son and God the Holy Spirit
(1 John 5:7).
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
His virgin birth (Matt 1:18)
His sinless life (2
His miracles (Acts 10:38)
His vicarious death
as the only sacrifice for the sin of the world (1 John 2:2)
bodily resurrection from the dead (Luke 24:39)
His ascension to
the right hand of God as our intercessor (Hebrews 4:14)
future return in glory;
first to rapture His church (1
and second, to establish the kingdom of God
upon the earth (Revelation 20:6).
We believe in the finality of Christís
mediatorial work for the redemption of humanity
and the present
freedom of access to the Father (1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25).
We believe in the new birth as the only means of
receiving eternal life.
The new birth involves a cleansing and
deliverance from the penalty
and power of sin. It is effectuated
through faith in Jesus Christ
and repentance from sin (John
3:3,5,7; Ephesians 2:8,9; 1 Peter 1:18-20).
We believe in divine healing for the total man,
mind and body and that this healing is accomplished in the
redemptive work of Christ
on the cross and appropriated in the
through prayer (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1
Peter 2:24; James 5:13-15).
We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit
of power for all believers (Acts 2:4,38-39; 10:44-46;
19:1-6; Ephesians 5:18).
This baptism results in a deeper
expression of spiritual fruit (Galatians 5:22,23),
growth in Christ-likeness (2 Corinthians 3:18),
manifestation of spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1-11),
more effective prayer life (Romans 8:26, 27).
We believe in the process of spiritual
wrought in the believerís life by
the Holy Spirit.
The growth involves daily dying to sin and living
unto righteousness (Romans 6:1-23),
finds expression in a holy
life (Hebrews 12:24)
and will be culminated at the return of
Christ (1 John 3:2).
We believe in the resurrection from the dead.
First, the righteous unto eternal life and second,
unto eternal damnation
(Daniel 12:2; John 5:28,29; Revelation
We believe in the sacraments of the church
established by Jesus Christ our Lord;
the Lordís Supper (Matthew
26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
and baptism by immersion as a
and witness of the new birth (Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter
