What We Believe


 
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
(II Timothy 3:16,17)

We believe in the triune Godhead as eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son
 and Holy Spirit. (II Corinthians 13:14)

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life,
in His miracles, in His vicarious death and atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection,
in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His present priestly ministry.
(I Timothy 3:16; Romans 3:25,26)

We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit
is absolutely essential. We further believe in the keeping power of God.
(Titus 3:5; Jude 24,25)

We believe that sanctification, holiness and the overcoming life is God's design for the church,
which is the Bride of Christ.  (Ephesians 5:27-29)

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as on the day of Pentecost and in the continuing
ministry of the Holy Spirit as evidenced in gifts and ministries, and in the fruit of the
Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.
(Acts 2:4; Acts 10:46; Acts 19:6; Ephesians 4:11; I Corinthians 12:8-11; Galatians 5:22,23)

We believe that divine healing is obtained on the basis of the atonement.
(Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:1)

We believe in Christ's imminent personal return in power and great glory, and in His present and
everlasting dominion.  (Acts 1:8; Revelation 1:7; Daniel 7:14)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the
resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment. 
(John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:15)
