What We Believe

The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the revealed will of God. (2 Tim. 3:16, 2Pet. 1:21)

Our God is one, but manifested in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. All are equal and eternal. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Word made flesh, and God manifest in the flesh. (Matt. 28:19, John 1:1, Heb. 1:2-3, 1 John 5:7)

Man was created in the image of God. By voluntary transgression, sin entered into the world causing man’s separation from God, with his only hope of redemption in Jesus Christ. (Gen. 1:26, Rom. 5:12-17)

Salvation is God’s free gift to man through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is received by believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confessing Jesus as your Lord. (John 3:3, Rom. 10:9-10, Eph. 2:8)

Water baptism is a believer’s declaration to the world that he has died with Christ, and has been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matt. 28:19, Rom 6:4, Col 2:12)

The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a free gift from God, promised to every believer and received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. (Matt. 3:11, Acts 1:8,Acts 2:4, 38-39, Acts 19:1-6)

Redemption through Jesus Christ frees man from the curse of sin, spiritual death, poverty, and sickness- and enables him to reign over, and independent of the circumstances of life. (Rom 5:17, Rom 8:2, 3 John 2)

Jesus is coming again to gather His saints unto heaven. When He comes, the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. (Acts 1:11,l 1 Thess. 4:16-17, 2 Thess. 2:1)

Following the tribulation, Jesus will return to the earth as King of kings and Lord of lords, and with His saints will rule and reign for one thousand years. After this period, there will be a new heaven and a new earth. (rev. 20:6, Rev. 21)

The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The lake of fire is literal. (Heb. 9:27, Rev. 19:20)
