THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
I believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17). ALL scripture is useful for doctrine, correction and instruction in righteousness so that the believer may be thoroughly complete and furnished for every good work.
THE ETERNAL GODHEAD
I believe God is Triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).
THE FALL OF MAN
I believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection (Romans 5:12).
THE PLAN OF SALVATION
I believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
SALVATION THROUGH GRACE
I believe that we have no righteousness in and of ourselves and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).
REPENTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE
I believe that, when people repent of their sins and accept Christ, they are justified through Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross. To repent means to be sorry for sins, but it also means to turn away from a sinful lifestyle. Accepting Christ means believing in Him as the only Savior. To be justified means being declared “not guilty” in regard to sin (Romans 10:9-10; 1 John 1:9).
THE NEW BIRTH - BAPTISM INTO THE BODY OF CHRIST
I believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20). When this conversion takes place, the person is immersed fully into the Body of Christ, the Holy Spirit being the one who is the baptizing agent. 1 Corinthians 12:13
WATER BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER
I believe that baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of an inward work (Matt. 28:19). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's Supper by the symbolic use of grape juice (I Corinthians 11:24, 25). Typically, a minister is the baptizing agent in water baptism.
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a separate work from salvation and is to endue the believer with power and quickens the believer's spirit to the things of the Spirit; and that His incoming is always manifested with the evidence of the believer speaking in tongues, after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2, 8, 10, 19). Jesus is the baptizing agent when one is baptized in the Holy Spirit. Matthew 3:11; Luke 3:16
THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE
I believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).
THE GIFTS AND FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
I believe that the Holy Spirit still bestows nine spiritual gifts on the believers in the Church just as He did in the early Church; I also believe that as we walk in the Spirit we will show proof and evidence of the Spirit filled life through the fruit of our walk. That spiritual fruit will be evident to those around us and will be a blessing to those around us. (I Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22).
I believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism (Philippians 4:5).
I believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
I believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (I Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
I believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Body of Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25).
THE FINAL JUDGEMENT
I believe that all shall stand some day before the judgement seat of God, and there receive eternal life or death (2 Corinthians 5:10).
I believe that Heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers and will be until the Earth is destroyed and recreated by the Lord. At that time, Heaven will come down to Earth and rest on Earth forever.(John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).
I believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15).
TITHES AND OFFERINGS
I believe that the Biblical example for the support and spread of God's cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings. This is also how God makes provision for His people. By giving, God is able to give back to His people. (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7).
