WHAT WE BELIEVE
Statement of beliefs
WE BELIEVE... The Scriptures Inspired The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testament, are verbally inspired
of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
WE BELIEVE... in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son Jesus was both human and divine.
WE BELIEVE... there is only one true God–revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
(commonly known as the Trinity).
WE BELIEVE... though originally good, man willingly fell to sin – ushering evil and death,
both physical and spiritual, into the world.
WE BELIEVE... and practice two ordinances—(1) water baptism by immersion
after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of
salvation, and (2) communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's
suffering and death for our salvation.
WE BELIEVE... every person can have restored fellowship with God by trusting Christ,
through faith and repentance, to be their personal Savior.
WE BELIEVE... the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation
that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.
WE BELIEVE... 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, throughout time,
have accepted God's offer of redemption through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE... divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and
is provided for because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE... in The Blessed Hope - when Jesus returns for His Church.
At this future moment in time, all believers who are alive will be caught up in the air to be with the Lord forever.
WE BELIEVE... a 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 literal
hell that the Bible calls The Lake of Fire.
WE BELIEVE... and 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. 'And so shall we forever be with the Lord!'
