INSPIRATION OF SCRIPTURE


We believe the Bible both the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man and inherently reveals the will of God and all things necessary to our lives and salvation. God’s word is the final and absolute authority. (2 Tim. 3:16)

ONE GOD


We believe that there is only one God manifested in three persons, with God the Father being the first in the Godhead, eternal in existence, perfectly Holy in nature, righteous, just loving, full of mercy and Sovereign over the universe. (1 John. 5:7; 2 Corinthians 13-14)  He only is God, creative and administrative, Holy in nature attributes and purpose. He as God is first in the Godhead, an essential being, revealed as Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the second person of the God-head, eternally one with the Father, Redeemer and Savior of mankind.  He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary so that two whole and perfect natures, (the Godhead and manhood) are thus united in one person, very God and very man, the God-man.  He performed miracles, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, reconciles mankind to God through faith in His atoning death and shed blood, and that He truly rose from the dead and took again His body, together with all things appertaining to the perfection of man’s nature, wherewith He ascended into Heaven and is there engaged in intercession for us. (John. 1:1-2, I Tim. 3:16)  

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person in the Godhead, sent by God and is ever present in the life of the believer to empower, comfort, teach, and lead them in the things of God and convinces the world of sin, regenerating those who repent and believe, sanctifying believers and guiding them into all truth as it is in Jesus. (John. 15:26, I Peter 1:2)

SALVATION


We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith alone whereby the moral nature of the repentant believer is spiritually quickened and given a distinctively spiritual life, capable of faith, love and obedience. The salvation of sinners by grace, through faith is the all-sufficient work of Christ on our behalf upon the cross of Calvary.

REPENTANCE


We believe that repentance, which is a sincere and thorough change of mind in regard to sin, involving a sense of personal guilt and voluntary turning away from sin is demanded of all who have by act or purpose become sinners against God. (1 John 1:9)  The Spirit of God gives to all that will repent the gracious help of penitence of heart and hope of mercy that they may believe unto pardon and spiritual life.

THE GREAT COMMISSION


We believe the Lord commissioned His church – the body of believers — to undertake the discipleship of the world.

BAPTISM


We believe in the Believer’s Baptism by immersion as an outward symbol of dying to the old life and being resurrected with Christ anew; signifies rebirth; and is an outward expression of the believer’s inner conviction and faith. (Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 8:26-40, Rom. 6:3-5, I Corinthians 12-13)

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all believers and results in empowerment of the believer to live a Godly life.

HOLY COMMUNION


We observe the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper as an act of obedience to our Lord’s instructions, understanding that the elements are symbolic not literal but representative of His given body and shed blood. (I Corinthians 11:23-26)
