What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Pet. 1:21)
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the Father of creation. He is the Son of redemption. He is the Holy Spirit operating today (Gen 1:1, Matt 28:19, John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isa. 7:14, Matt 1:23, Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Heb. 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1 Cor. 15:3, Eph. 1:7, Heb. 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25, I Cor. 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly Life (Rom. 8:13-14, I Cor. 3:16; 6:19-20, Eph. 4:30, 5:15).
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Our basic and fundamental doctrine shall be the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with fruit, gifts, and signs to follow as the Spirit gives. (Galatians 5:22-23; Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:3-5; Acts 2:38; 1 Peter 3:20,21; Mark 16:16; Titus 3:5)
The gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection). (1 Corinthians 12:8-10; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4).
