What We Believe


  1. The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Work of God. ( II Timothy 3:15; I Peter 2:2)
  2. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 5:17–30; Mark 12:29)
  3. The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ is shown in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years. (Isaiah 7:14; Hebrews 7:26; Acts 1:9-11, 2:22;
    1 Corinthians 15:3,4)
  4. The Blessed Hope is the Rapture of the Church at Christ's coming. (I Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; I Corinthians 15:51,52) (These scriptures also apply to No. 9)
  5. The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the blood of Christ. The regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation. (Luke 24:47; Romans 8:16, 10:13-15; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7; Ephesians 7:13-14)
  6. The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer. (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16)
  7. The Son of God baptizes believers who ask for it with the Holy Spirit for life and service. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8, 2:4, 10:44-46, 15:8,9)
  8. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit, through its sanctifying power, enables the Christian to live a holy life. (Hebrews 12:14, I Peter 1:15,16; Philippians 2:12,13)
  9. There is resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life, and the other to everlasting damnation. (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:34-48; Revelation 19:20, 20:11-15, 21:8) (See No. 4.)
  10. The Church is the Body of Christ, and is made up of all true believers. It is both universal and local. The purpose of the Church is for fellowship, unity, and teaching of doctrine. (Ephesians 1:22,23, 2:22; Hebrews 10:23-25, 12:23; Acts 2:42)
