Statement of Faith

This is what we believe:

We believe Jesus Christ is His son who was God manifest in the flesh; He walked the earth, lived among men; died and was raised again to life. Romans 1:4; Acts 10:38

We believe that man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. Genesis 5:1-2. Romans 5:12-14

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides salvation for the soul of everyone that believes and divine healing for the body. John 3:16, Colossians 1:14

We believe that when an individual receives the Holy Spirit, he/she receives divine enablement for Christian service and witness. Acts 1:8
We believe that Jesus will return and “. . . The dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air . . .” (1 Thess. 4:16–17).

The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man’s problems. 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:20,21

We believe in God the creator of heaven and earth, the Supreme Being and Father of us all. There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7

God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted. Psalm 68:5,6; 1 John 4:16

We believe in the freedom of the Christian from sin, and the consequent blessing of being bond servants of Christ; and that it exhibits our fruit unto holiness and life everlasting (Romans 6:22).

We believe that we are justified by faith, and have received of the free gift of righteousness through God’s Grace, which gift is not of works (Galatians 2:16, Romans 4:16).

We believe that God wills and works in men and that His purposes are fulfilled by His work through us who believe. We believe that the Word of God is the sole standard of truth and is the pattern for Christian living. Man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus, we cannot have a relationship with God. Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5

We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation, God’s free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God’s unearned favor. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God. Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24

We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. He helps empower the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God’s will. Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4

God gives all believers spiritual gifts. They are for the strengthening of God’s people (the Church) and proof of God’s existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today. 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10

Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God’s character to be developed in us. Romans 6:19; Galatians 5:22-25

Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Healing includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration. Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1

The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God’s desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth. Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18

Jesus will return and take all those who have accepted Him as Savior to be with Him for eternity. Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28
