What We Believe

Our Doctrinal Beliefs
The Bible
The Old and New Testaments are the inspired and authoritative Word of God.  In the Bible, we find the revelation of God’s will for the salvation of humanity and the divine, final authority for Christian life.
The Trinity
There is one God, the Creator of all things who has made Himself known in three persons
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ was the incarnation of God in the world.  He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary.  He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as a sacrifice for the sins of all men.
The Holy Spirit
The present and supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.
During this age, He dwells, guides, instructs and empowers the Believer for Godly living and
service. Every Believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit as the initial physical evidence and
with the character of the Spirit as the ongoing life evidence.  

 The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
 Jesus Christ bodily arose from the dead, ascended to Heaven, and now is at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
Regeneration by the Holy Spirit
 Mankind was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost.  Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and Spiritual life be obtained. The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for justification and salvation.
Water Baptism and Holy Communion
Water Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. However, they are not to be regarded as means of salvation. We believe that all Christians are baptized by the Holy Spirit when they are born again.  We believe that water baptism by immersion is the Biblical testimony of the professed believer in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Acts 2:28-41, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 8:36-40, 47.
We believe that those who partake of the Lords’ Supper should be born-again believers, walking in fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  Acts 2:42-46, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
Prayer and Application of the Word of God
Every born-again, Spirit-filled Believer should maintain a consistent personal devotional life by praying with understanding, praying with the Spirit, and participating in daily study and application of the Word of God. This is evident by holiness of lifestyle, Godliness of character, and a love of the brethren.
The Church
 The true Church is composed of those who are born again. Through this new birth, we are united together in the Body of Christ.  Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church.  Every local church under Christ has the right to decide and govern its own affairs.  
The Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
The imminent second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ has a vital bearing on the personal life, stewardship and service of the Believer.

 Bodily resurrection of the dead
There will be a bodily resurrection of the dead, of the non-believer to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment, and of the Believer to everlasting joy with the Lord.
