What We Believe

1. THE ONE TRUE GOD. We believe that there is One God, eternally co-existent in three persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-14; 2 Corinthians 13:14)


2. DEITY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. We believe in the deity of Jesus, in His virgin birth, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:18-25; John 19-21; I Corinthians 15)


3. PERSON AND WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. We believe He is the third person of the Godhead. He brings comfort, help and power to those who are born again. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to every believer subsequent to salvation. (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-46; Galatians 3:14-15)


4. THE SCRIPTURES. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 3:15-16)


5. SALVATION OF MAN. We believe man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11)


6. ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH. We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion, for all born again believers and those who come back to God, to fulfill the command of Christ. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:34-36; 19:1-6) We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly referred to as Communion of the Lord’s Supper for all believers. (1 Corinthians 11:L28-32)


7. FALL OF MAN. We believe man was created good and upright. However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:17,36; Romans 5:12-19)


8. GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT. We believe in the operation of the Gifts of the Spirit as outlined in I Corinthians 12-14, as manifested in the Early Church.


9. DIVINE HEALING. We believe divine healing as practiced in the Early Church to be God’s Will for mankind. We place our trust in Calvary’s Double Cure, when Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross, He paid the price for our salvation and healing. (Isaiah 53:1-5; Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; I Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14; I Peter 2:24)


10. IMMINENT RETURN OF CHRIST. We believe in the rapture of the church, which is our blessed hope. We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ when He comes to establish His Kingdom on the Earth. We believe in the Millennial Reign of Christ. (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 19-20)
