Statement of Faith
We believe that all of Scripture (i.e. both the Old and
New Testament) is verbally inspired by God, and is our
final authority in all matters pertaining to doctrine,
reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness
(II Tim. 3:16,17)
We believe in
only one true God; One in essence, nature, and
attributes, but existing in three persons: Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit (I Jn. 5:7).
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His
virgin birth, of His shed blood on Calvary for the
forgiveness of our sins, of His bodily resurrection and
ascension to the Father's right hand. We do not believe
that He is a way to the Father, but rather the only way
through which we can receive righteousness,
regeneration, sanctification, and glorification. He is,
in fact, our salvation (I Cor. 1:30-31).
We believe in the baptism with the Holy
Spirit, expressed with speaking in tongues according to
Acts 1:8; 2:4; 9:17; 10:44-46; 11:15,16; and 19:6. We
believe this experience is distinct from, and subsequent
to, the new birth, and can be received by faith (Gal.
We believe that all
who, in repentance and faith, receive the Lord Jesus as
Savior and Lord are born again (Acts 20:20-21; Rom.
We believe that
the redemptive work of Christ on the cross has provided
healing for the human body (Mt. 8:16,17; Isa. 53:4; I
believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust;
one to everlasting life and one to judgment
The Second Coming
believe in a literal, physical second return of the Lord
Jesus Christ (I Th. 1:10; 4:16-17).
that the universal church is comprised of all true
believers who have received salvation through Christ
(Eph. 1:22-23). We also believe in and encourage
fellowship with a local church (Heb. 10:25).
Gifts of the Spirit
We believe that spiritual
gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit are for the
common good and building up of others today (I Cor.
