STATEMENT OF FAITH

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES:

2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, irrevocable and complete Word of God.

THE TRINITY:

1 JOHN 5:7

We believe God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the three in one.

THE FALL OF MAN:

ROMANS 5:12

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection.

BASIS OF SALVATION:

JOHN 3:16; ROMANS 5:8, ROMANS 10:9,10

We believe that while we were still sinners Christ died for us, signing the legal pardon of all who believe on Him and acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Lord.

DAILY CHRISTIAN LIFE:

HEBREWS 6:1

We believe that it is the will of God that we live a lifestyle that is entirely devoted to God that demonstrates a determination to be growing constantly in the Faith.

WATER BAPTISM:

MATTHEW 28:19

We believe that baptism by immersion, in water, is an outward sign of the inward work of salvation.

COMMUNION:

I CORINTHIANS 11:28

We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolic use of bread and the juice of the vine.

THE HOLY SPIRIT:

ACTS 1:8; 2:4, JOHN 16:13A, JOHN 14:26, EPHESIANS 4:10-11, GALATIANS 5:22-23

We believe that the Holy Spirit was sent on the day of Pentecost, and is still sent today, to fill the believer with power, to give gifts that enable us to minister, to guide us into all truth and to provide comfort. As believers mature they begin to show the fruit of a spirit-filled life.

WORSHIP:

JOHN 4:24, PSALM 150

We believe that “acceptable” and “true” worship is prescribed by God Himself in His Word. This embodies individual and corporate expressions of joyous praise and thanksgiving as well as reverent humbling of ourselves as an expression of our adoration of Him.

THE SECOND COMING:

I THESSALONIANS 4:16-17

We believe that the second coming of Christ is literal and inevitable.

CHURCH MEMBERSHIP:

ACTS 16:5; HEBREWS 10:5

We believe it is our sacred duty to identify and actively participate with the local and visible Body of Christ.

THE FINAL JUDGEMENT:

2 CORINTHIANS 5:10; REVELATION 20:11-13

We believe that everyone will stand before God in final judgment, and there receive eternal reward or eternal judgment.

HEAVEN:

JOHN 14:2; REVELATION 7:15-17

We believe that Heaven is a literal place, eternally existent.

HELL:

REVELATION 20:10,15

We believe that hell is a literal place of eternal torment for all who reject the Lord Jesus.

EVANGELISM:

JAMES 5:20; MARK 16:15; 2 CORINTHIANS 5:18-21

We believe that soul-winning is the Great Commission given to the Church.

TITHES AND OFFERINGS:

MALACHI 3:10, 2 CORINTHIANS 9:7, HEBREWS 7:8

We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by the giving of tithes and free-will offerings.

HEALING:

I PETER 2:24; MATTHEW 8:17; 18: 18-19; JAMES 5:14-16; I CORINTHIANS 2:9; MARK 16:15-18; MATTHEW 24:25; MARK 13:31; LUKE 21:33

We believe that healing is the provision of Christ to heal the sick in response to the exercise of faith, the prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement, anointing with oil, the gifts of healing or the laying on of hands. We believe that this provision of Christ is for everyone today.

UNITY AND LOVE

John 17:20-23; I Corinthians 13

We believe the best about people and make forgiveness a priority. We are a family and we do life together. We honor those before us and inspire the ones behind us. We love all people, no matter where they are at on their journey.
