STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in the unity of the Godhead who has revealed Himself as One God existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day and personally appeared unto His disciples.
We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation and personal and bodily coming again, the second time for His church.
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a real experience at or subsequent to salvation, with the scriptural evidence, namely speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
We believe that the Bible is the Divine Revelation given of God to men and is the complete and infallible guide and standard of authority in all matters of religion and morals.
We believe that what the Bible teaches is to be believed; what it commands is to obeyed; what it commends is to be accepted as right and useful; and what it condemns is to be avoided as both wrong and hurtful.
We believe in the operation of the Gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14; as manifested in the early church.
We believe in the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as expressing the true Christian faith.
We believe in the healing of the physical body by Divine power.
We believe in Communion or the Lord’s Supper for believers.
We believe in eternal life for believers and eternal punishment for unbelievers.
We believe that there is one true universal church, made up of genuine believers, but this one universal church if also composed of many local churches in given localities. These churches are under the sovereign headship of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that government is ordained of God, and the powers that be are ordained as ministers of God to us for good. To resist the powers and the ordinances is to resist the ordinance of God. We are subject not only for wrath sake but for conscience sake, rendering to all their dues, custom of whom custom, honor to whom honor. We declare our loyalty to our government and its leadership, and will assist in every way possible consistent with our faith in the scriptures as Christian citizens.
