Statement of Faith


We believe in ONE God – comprised of the Father, the Son (the Word) and the Holy Spirit—who is the Creator of all things (I John 5:7). 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, was buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now enthroned on high and is true God and true man (Matthew 1:20-21, John 3:16, Acts 4:10, 1 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 10:12). 

We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16).

We believe in the personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, by “the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit” (Ephesians 3:17, John 3:1-5, Titus 3:5).

We believe in sanctification through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness shown by purity of heart and life (Hebrews 12:14).

We believe in the moral parameters outlined in God's Word, that a marriage is between one man and one woman, and that any sexual activity outside of this divinely ordained institution is sin, something intolerable and unacceptable to a true believer (Genesis 2:24, Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 5:3, 1 Timothy 3:2, 12).

We believe in divine healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in the Redemption (James 5:15, 1 Peter 2:24).

We believe in the initial salvation experience of being “born again” (John. 3:3-6), in water baptism, as a symbol of a believer's dedication to Christ (Matthew. 28:19, Ac. 2:38), in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New Birth (Acts 19:1-7), in the gifts of the Spirit (Acts 2:4, 1 Corinthians 12:7-11), and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). We believe that all of these are available to believers today.

We believe in the Christian’s hope: the soon coming, personal, bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 6:39, Acts 1:11, Revelation 22:20). At His coming (which will happen on “the last day” of this age, at the “last trump”), the dead “in Christ” will rise first, then the living believers will be “caught up to meet the Lord in the air” as we receive our glorified bodies (Jn. 6:39-40, 1 Corinthians 15:52). God's people will then usher the King of kings victoriously into this world. He will reign from Jerusalem, and we will reign with Him over a restored paradise world (1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Revelation 20:1-6).
