WHAT WE BELIEVE: 

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to mankind, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason .

             1 Timothy 3v15-16, 1 Peter 2v2

  • In the one true God, who reveals Himself in three distinct persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  The Three being one and equal and eternally self-existent as the Great “I AM”.

            Matthew 29v19, 1John 5v7

  • God created the heavens and the earth and all it contains, including man.

            Genesis 1, Hebrews 11v3 

  • That man was created good and upright, for God said “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” But man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Genesis 1v26-31 to 3, Romans 5v12-21

  • That Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son, born of a virgin, who ministered the love and the will of the Father, was and is, very God and Creator of all things.

  •  That you must be born-again, receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, in order to see the Kingdom of God.

              John 3v3, Romans 10v9-10

  •  The grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, and, being justified by grace through faith, he becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life.

             Romans 10v13-15, Luke 23v47, Titus 3v5-7

  •  That believers should be baptized with water. The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures, by all who have repented and in their hearts have truly believed in Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they have the body washed in pure water as an outward symbol of cleansing, while their heart has already been sprinkled with the blood of Christ as an inner cleansing. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.

             Mark 16v15-16, Acts 2v38

  •  The Scriptures teach a life of holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. By the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to obey the command, “Be ye holy, for I am holy.” Entire sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word.

             Hebrews 12v14, 1 Peter 1v15-16,  1 John 2v6
