We believe the SCRIPTURES are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
We believe there is only one TRUE God, revealed in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the trinity).
We believe in the DIETY of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son Jesus was both human and divine.
We believe, though originally good, man WILLINGLY fell into sin, ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
We believe every person can have restored fellowship with God through SALVATION (accepting Christ’s offer of forgiveness
We believe and practice the ordinance of WATER BAPTISM by immersion – after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s free gift of salvation.
We believe and practice the ordinance of HOLY COMMUNION (the Lords Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.
We believe that the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times. (Not a means of salvation).
We believe that the initial PHYSICAL EVIDENCE of the baptism of the Holy Spirit
is ‘speaking in tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced
throughout Acts and the Epistles.
We believe SANCTIFICATION initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy but also a progressive lifelong process of
separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christ-like.
We believe the church has a MISSION to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe ‘the church’ is the body of Christ and consists of the people who,
throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son,
We believe a DIVINELY CALLED and scripturally ordained leadership ministry
serves the church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers
and to build up or edify the body of believers-the church.
We believe DIVINE HEALING of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ’s atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).
We believe the BLESSED HOPE, when Jesus raptures His church prior to (pretribulation rapture) His return to earth (the second coming). At this future moment
in time, all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air. Christians who are alive will also be caught up with them to be with the
We believe in the MILLENIAL REIGN of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. At that time, many in the nation of Israel will recognize and accept Him as the Messiah,
the Savior who died for them and all mankind.
We believe a final JUDGEMENT will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and suffer eternal punishment in a lake of fire.
We believe and look forward to the perfect
NEW HEAVENS and a NEW EARTH that
Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on earth.
“And so shall we forever be with the Lord!”
