Beliefs


These are the beliefs that make up the foundation of this church.

Holy Scripture
We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

The Eternal Godhead
We believe God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (2 Corinthians 13:14).

Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection (Romans 5:12).

God's Plan of Salvation
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).

Salvation Through Grace
We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).

Repentance & Acceptance
We believe that upon sincere repentance and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (1 John 1:9).

New Birth at Conversion
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthian 5:17, Galatians 2:20).

Daily Christian Life
We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).

Baptism & the Lord's Supper
We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matthew 28:19). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's Supper by the symbolical use of the bread and juice of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:24-25).

Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power, and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).

The Spirit-Filled Life
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).

Gifts & Fruit of the Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian, and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11, Galatians 5:22).

Moderation
We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticisms (Philippians 4:5).

Divine Healing
We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16.)

The Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).

Church Relationship
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible church of Christ (Acts 16:5, Hebrews 10:25).

Civil Government
We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).

Final Judgment
We believe that all shall someday stand before the judgment seat of God, and there receive eternal life or death ( 2 Corinthians 5:10).

Heaven
We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3, Revelation 7:15-17).

Hell
We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10, 15).

Evangelism
We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (James 5:20).

Tithes & Offerings
We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10, 2 Corinthians 9:7).
