We Believe

We Believe

In God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayers; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

In Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and His personal and visible return to earth. We believe that in His first coming Jesus Christ inaugurated the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God.

In the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding, Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit.

That the Scriptures, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, the infallible rule of faith and practice and are eternal truths that are to be experienced and practiced by believers for all time.

That all are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

In the universal church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.

That the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church: Baptism; and The Lord’s Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion of the Holy Spirit, for ordination of pastors, elders, and deacons, and for receiving gifts of the Spirit or healing.

That marriage is a sacrament ordained by God between one man and one woman.

In the personal, visible, Appearing of Christ to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.
