Statement of Faith

We believe:

The Bible – the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inherent having no errors in the original writings,inspired purely by the Spirit of God to reveal completely His will for the salvation of men and His divine and final authority to walk the faith of Jesus Christ.

God – There is only one God who possesses omnipresence, omniscience, omnipotence, holiness, justice, mercy, truth, independence, immutability and eternity, and exists in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ – Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, died on the cross to bring the complete and final sacrifice for the salvation of all men, resurrected from death and ascended to heaven, seated now at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate, according to the Scriptures.

The Holy Spirit – The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during the Church Age, to convict the unsaved, to regenerate the believing sinner, to witness the sonship, to inspire the worship, to intercede in prayer, to manifest God’s personality, to reveal the truth, to sanctify, to indwell, to guide, to infill, to anoint, and to empower the believer for godly living and service.

Man – Man was created in the image of God. However fell into sin, lost its divine identity, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be regained.

Salvation – The blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and any one who receives Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit adopted by God in the beloved.

The Return of Jesus Christ – The personal, premillenial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope being an essential part of the personal life and service of the believer.

Future Events – There will be a catching from above of all the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and judgment and everlasting conscious punishment to the unbelievers.

The Church – The true Church is made up of all believers, saved by faith in Jesus Christ, regenerated by the Holy Spirit and united together in the body of Christ having Him as the head.

Baptism and Communion – Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life in Christ. The Lord’s Supper (Communion) is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; having all true believers share in it as Jesus stated in the Scriptures.

Five-fold Ministers – The Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers are people chosen and appointed by God as gifts of Jesus Christ to the believers for the building up and edification to come together having unity in faith and knowledge of the Son of God, reaching maturity in Christ’s likeness
