What We Believe

We believe the following are the fundamental doctrines vital to our unity and purpose as a church. 

The Scriptures – The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.  (2 Peter 1:20-21)

The Godhead – The one true living God revealed in the Scriptures as one God manifested in three Persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, being co-equal (Deut. 6:4, Phil. 2:6)

Jesus is the Son of God – We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father, His personal return to this earth in power and glory, and that He is now both Lord and Christ. (Is. 7:14; Matt. 1:23, Is. 9:6)

Present Day Ministry of the Holy Spirit – By the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, the believer is enabled to live a godly life that manifests the fruit and gifts of the Spirit.  (John 14:16-17; Gal. 5:22-26)

The New Birth and Eternal Life – Salvation is the gift of God to man.  Man is justified by faith in Jesus Christ, apart from works and the law.  The Scriptures teach that by grace we are saved through faith, not by works, it is a gift of God.  (John 11:25-26; Eph. 2:8)

Baptism of the Holy Spirit – The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God providing endowment of power for life and service.  (Acts 2:1-4; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 10:44-48)

Water Baptism – Baptism by immersion is for all believers as a symbol of Christian identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.  (Matt. 28:19, Rom. 6:4, Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36-39)

The Lord’s Supper – All believers are commanded to observe this ordinance of the church in remembrance of our Lord’s death.  (Luke 22:19)

Healing for the Total Man – The redemptive work of Christ provides healing for the whole man – spirit, soul and body.  (1 Thes. 5:23; 2 Cor. 5:17)

The Church – The Body of Christ is the Church.  It is the instrument and focus of God’s purposes in the earth.  Every believer should be committed and a part of a local assembly lead by the pastor, that meets regularly with the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission.  (1 Cor. 1:2; 1 Cor. 12:27; Eph. 3:8-12)
