Statement of Faith
We Believe the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the divinely inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and the final authority for all Christian faith and life (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21).
We Believe in one God, infinite, perfect and eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14).
We Believe in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His unqualified deity, His sinless humanity, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection and His ascension to His Father’s right hand (I Corinthians 15:3-4; John 1:1, 20:24-29; Hebrews 4:15; I Timothy 2:5; Revelation 20:1-6).
We Believe in the personal and imminent, pre-tribulation return of Jesus Christ for His church, i.e. the rapture; the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ with His church, and His millennial reign on earth (Hebrews 9:28; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:1-6; I Corinthians 15:51; Philippians 3:20-21; Titus 2:13).
We Believe that justification is a judicial act of God on the believer’s behalf solely through faith in Christ’s death and resurrection (Romans 3:24,26; 4:18-25; 5:1; I Corinthians 6:11; Galatians 3:24).
We Believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is under condemnation, and that it is only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit that salvation can be obtained (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:17; 3:1-13; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; I Timothy 2:5-6).
We Believe that water Baptism by immersion, and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; I Corinthians 11:17-34).
We Believe that the Christian life involves discipleship, obedience to the Word of God, holiness, witness and service through the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 1:8; 2:38; II Corinthians 6:14-18; 7:1) .
We Believe in the baptism with the Holy Spirit with the initial physical evidence of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:4; 4:31; 10:46; I Corinthians 12:13-14; Ephesians 5:18).
We Believe in the demonstration of the gifts of the Spirit, and the manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
We Believe in the divine healing of the human body as provided for in the atonement, which is a privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4,5; James 5:14,15).
We Believe in Heaven as the eternal inheritance of the believers, and in Hell and the Lake of Fire as the place of eternal doom for the devil, his angels, and all unbelievers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 20:10-15, 21:1-6).
We Believe that the true Church consists of all who through faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united in the Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:22; 4:3-6).
We Believe in and practice the five-fold Ministries and the supporting Ministries to be operational in the Church (Ephesians 4:11-13).
