What We Believe

  1. That the Bible is the inspired Word of God;
  2. That God exists eternally in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit;
  3. That God’s only begotten son, Jesus Christ, was born of the virgin Mary, was crucified, buried and raised from the dead, and that He ascended to Heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor;
  4. That every person has sinned against God, and that only repentant faith in Jesus Christ can bring about forgiveness of sin, the new birth, and newness of life;
  5. That believers are called to live a holy life according to the Word of God and that believers are made holy through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word of God, and by the Holy Spirit;
  6. That the Holy Spirit dwells within each believer;
  7. That the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God to empower each believer to accomplish his or her work in Christ’s Great Commission;
  8. In water baptism of believers by immersion, in the name of the Father, in the name of His only begotten son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit;
  9. In divine healing through Christ’s atonement;
  10. In the Lord’s Supper and washing of saints’ feet;
  11. In the premillennial second coming of Jesus; first to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air; second, to reign on the earth a thousand years;
  12. In the resurrection to eternal life for the righteous and to eternal separation from God for the wicked.
