Statement Of Faith/We Believe...

THE SCRIPTURES - The Bible is the inspired Word of God. The product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.  The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (Tim. 3:16, 1Thess. 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21).

THE GODHEAD - Our God is one, eternally existing in three persons - The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, being co-equal (Phil. 2:6).  God The Father is greater than all; the sender of the Word and the Begetter (John 14:28, John 16:28, John 1:14.)  The Son is the Word flesh-covered, The One Begotten, and has existed with The Father from the beginning(John 1:1, John 1:18, John 1:14).  The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both The Father and the Son and is eternal(John 15:26).

MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION - Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam's transgression and fall, sin came into the world.  "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God."  "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one," that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary.  That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead and is today sitting at the right hand of The Father as the Intercessor.  For this purpose, He came to destroy the works of the devil, gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God. (Rom. 5:14, Rom. 3:10, Rom. 3:23, 1 John 3:8)

That repentance is commanded by God for all and is necessary for the forgiveness of sins.  That salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God (Eph. 2:8).

ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH - That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.  The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced produces eternal life (2 Cor. 7:10, 1John 5:12, John 3:3-5).

WATER BAPTISM - Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only.  The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian's identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection (Matt. 28:19, Rom 6:4, Col. 2:12, Acts 8:36-39).

SANCTIFICATION - Subsequent to the new birth, through the Word, and by the Holy Spirit.  Holiness is to be the standard of living commencing at the time of regeneration and until the consumation of salvation at Christ's return (Heb. 12:14, 1Thess. 5:23, 2Peter 3:18, 2 Cor. 3:18, Phil 3:12-14, 1Cor. 1:30).

BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST - The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth.  This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (Matt. 3:11, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:38-39, Acts 19:17, Acts 2:4).

DIVINE HEALING - Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith and by the laying on of hands.  It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today (Mark 16:18, James 5:14-25, 1Peter 2:24, Matt. 8:17).

RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF THE LORD - The angels said to Jesus' disciples, "This same Jesus shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into Heaven."  His coming is imminent.  When He comes, "...the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with then in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air..." (Acts 1:11, 1Thess. 4:16-17).  Following the Tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of kings, and Lord of lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years (Rev. 20:6).

HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION - The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire and therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting (Heb. 9:27, Rev. 19:20).
