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