The Bible

The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

 

  • 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21

 

The Trinity

There is only One True God-revealed in three persons... Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

  • Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 14:16-17; Luke 1:35; 1 Corinthians 1:24; Matthew 11:25-27; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 1:3-4

 

The Son

We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, Jesus was both human and divine.

 

  • Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31; Luke 1:35; Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22; Acts 2:22; Acts 10:38; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Acts 1:9; Acts 1:11; Acts 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3

 

Man

​Man, though originally good, Man willingly fell to sin; thus ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

 

  • Genesis 1:26,27; Genesis 2:17; Genesis 3:6; Romans 5:12-19

Salvation

We believe every Person can have restored fellowship with God through “salvation” (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior).

 

  • Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11; Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:12; Romans 8:16; Titus 3:5-7

 

Water Baptism and Communion.

We believe and practice two ordinances: (1) Water Baptism by Immersion after receiving Christ's gift of salvation.  (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.

 

 

  • Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47,48; Romans 6:4

  • 2 Peter 1:4​; 1 Corinthians 11:26; 1 Corinthians 11:26

 


The Holy Spirit

We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service.

 

  • Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Acts 8:12-17; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 11:14-16; Acts 15:7-9; John 7:37-39; Acts 4:8; Acts 2:43; Hebrews 12:28; Acts 2:42; Mark 16:20

The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance.

 

  • Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:4-10; 1 Corinthians 12:28 [KJV/NIV]

 

Sanctification

We believe that sanctification (being made or becoming holy) initially occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christ-like.

 

  • Romans 12:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Peter 1:15,16; Romans 6:1-11;Romans 6:13; Romans 8:1,2; Romans 8:13; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:12,13; 1 Peter 1:5


The Church

The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe “the Church” is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who have accepted God's offer of redemption through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.

  • Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19,20; Mark 16:15,16; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 12:28; 1 Corinthians 14:12; Psalms 112:9; Galatians 2:10; 6:10; James 1:27; Mark 16:15-20; Acts 4:29-3; Hebrews 2:3,4; 1 Corinthians 2:10-16; 1 Corinthians 12; 1 Corinthians 13; 1 Corinthians 14; Galatians 5:22-26; Matthew 25:37-40; Galatians 6:10; 1 Corinthians 14:12; Ephesians 4:11,12; 1 Corinthians 12:28; Colossians 1:29

 

Healing

Divine Healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ's atonement.

  • Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:14-16 

 

The Blessed Hope

When Jesus raptures His Church prior to His return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.

  • 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51,52

Final Judgment

 Final Judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.

 

  • Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:11-15; Revelation 21:8

 

The New Heavens and New Earth

We look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. “And so shall we forever be with the Lord!”

 

  • 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21; Revelation 22
