Believe

1.   We believe the bible is the inspired Word of God.  A revelation from God to man, the

       infallible rule of faith and conduct.  (II Timothy 3:15-16).

 

2.   We believe in one God, maker of all things and being in the Trinity of Father, Son, and      

       Holy Spirit.  (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29 and Ephesians 4:6).

 

3.   We believe that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, became incarnate, was begotten by the 

      Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is the true God and true man. 

      (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23-25 and Luke 1:26-35).

 

4.   We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and are in need of               salvation (Romans 3:23).  Salvation has been provided through the shed blood of Jesus   

      Christ for all people. (Romans 10:13 and Luke 24:47).  By confessing our sins to God,

      all will be forgiven and cleansed from all unrighteousness.  (1 John 1:9).

 

5.   We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other

      tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance.  (Acts 2:4 and I Corinthians 12:13-14).

 

6.   We believe in divine healing which is provided in the redemptive work of Christ  

       and is available to every believer.  (Isaiah 53:3, Matthew 8:17 and I Peter 2:24).

 

7.   We believe in the resurrection of the dead, those who have fallen asleep in Christ and

      their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the

      Lord, which is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church.

      (I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 8:23 and I Corinthians 15:51-53).

 

8.   We believe there will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and

      judged according to their works.  (Matthew 25:46; Romans 14:9-12 and Revelations

      19:20).

 

9    We believe in the imminent, personal pre-millennial second coming of our Lord 

      Jesus Christ.  (I Thessalonians 4:15-18 and Matthew 24:29-44).

 

10. We believe in water baptism, and the observance of the Lords Supper.  

      (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47-48; I Corinthians 11:17-34).

 

11. We believe in intensive world evangelism and missionary work in obedience to the

      Great Commission of Jesus Christ our Lord. (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-20 and Acts

      1:8).

 

12. We believe in the manifestations or gifts of the Holy Spirit as taught in the Scriptures.

      (I Corinthians 12:4-12 and Ephesians 4:11-12).

 

13. We believe in the five-fold ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Evangelist and 

      Teachers; the foundation of the Church being the ministry of Apostles and Prophets. 

      These callings are the authority gifts of the Church that the saints might be edified and

      equipped to do every good work.  (I Corinthians 12:27-28; Ephesians 2:20; 4:11-13).
