Our Beliefs

THE SCRIPTURES

The  Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God  (2 Timothy 3:16) presenting to us the complete revelation of His will  for the salvation of men, and constituting the Divine and only rule of  Christian faith and practice (2 Peter 1:21). ​

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His substitutionary death for all men, His resurrection, and His eventual return to judge the world.

SALVATION

We believe all are born with a sinful nature and that the work of Christ’s atonement at the Cross was to redeem us from the power of sin.  We believe that salvation is God’s gift to us. It is available to anyone who confesses the Lord Jesus with their mouth and believes that God has raised Him from death to life.  John 5:24; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9

WATER BAPTISM

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

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit and His interaction with man as a helper, guide and comforter (John 14:16). We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as manifested by the fruit and the gifts of the Spirit.

STEWARDSHIP

We believe that everyone is the steward of their life and resources, all of which ultimately belong to God, the ultimate Provider. We believe that tithing is a Biblical mandate and the measure of obedience to the scriptural principles of stewardship.

GODHEAD

We believe that God is the Creator of everything and that He exists eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 64:8; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; John 16:7-15; Hebrews 1:2-3

Church

We believe that Jesus established His body on earth in the church and that the church is a community that exists for the purpose of declaring the gospel and glory of Jesus throughout the world. 1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Colossians 1:18-20; 1 Peter 2:9

COMMUNION

We believe Communion is intended for Jesus’ followers, by which they acknowledge and remember His work on the cross.

HEALING

We believe that through the power of Christ healing is possible as we pray the prayer of faith, and lay hands on the sick.  James 5:14-16, 1Peter 2:24.
