What We belive

 There is one God who lives forever in three persons; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matt. 28:19) 

The Bible is God’s word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error. (2 Tim. 2:16-17)

The divinity of Jesus Christ the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and His personal, physical return to rule the earth in power of love. (Jn. 1:14-18; Thess. 4;16-18)

All mankind is lost in sin and needs to turn from it and trust personally in the Savior, Jesus Christ; all need to be born anew by the Holy Spirit’s power into God’s family. (Eph. 2:1-10; Jn. 3:5-7)

The Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control into our lives. (Gal. 5:22-23; 1 Cor. 12:7-11)

The resurrection of every person; to eternal life for the believer and eternal judgment for the lost. (Matt. 25:31-46)

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is an additional impartation which may be subsequent to salvation. This baptism is usually accompanied by the Physical sign of speaking in tongues and the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit, such as, prophecy, tongues, interpretation of tongues, etc. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is presently available to all who believe, but is not essential for salvation. The purpose of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is to impart spiritual power to the believer to be a witness of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:8, 2:4, 19:1-6, 1 Cor 12: 1-11)

Water Baptism by immersion should be observed immediately after one repents and believes in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. This ordinance is a personal and public statement of faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This also is a commitment to lay down our lives to be one with Him. (Acts 8;36-38, Rom. 6:3-4)

The ordinance of the Lord's supper is observed as a remembrance of Jesus and as a testimony of our unity with Him and His body the church. We want to be more like Jesus in every way, who is the head of the church. We are called to love him and one another and are enabled to do so, only as his life flows in and through us. (1 Cor. 11:24-26, 12:12-14, Matt. 22:37-40)
