What We Believe – Statement of Faith

We Believe the Holy Scriptures
The Bible is the inspired Word of God written by holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant as recorded in the New Testament is accepted as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine.
(2 Tim. 3:16, I Thes. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21) 

We Believe In God
God is one and has eternally existed in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Phil. 2:6) 

We Believe In Jesus Christ
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, and of His resurrection and ascension into heaven and is sitting at the right hand of God the Father. We believe that He is the only way through which we can receive Salvation, Regeneration, Righteousness, Sanctification and Glorification. (1 Cor. 1:30-31)

We Believe In Salvation, The New Birth And The Church 
We believe that all who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in repentance by faith are born-again, receive the New Birth, (John 3:3-5; Acts 20:20-21; Rom. 1; 9-13), and Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and laws, and is made operative by grace through Faith in Jesus Christ, (Eph. 2:8), and the Church is comprised of all true believers who have received Salvation through Jesus Christ (Eph. 1:22-23), and we encourage believers to find fellowship with a good bible believing church (Heb. 10;25).

We Believe In Water Baptism
We believe water baptism is by immersion and is an ordinance of the New Testament Church, and is to be observed by all born-again believers to acknowledge their acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36-39) 

We Believe In The Baptism In The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit which is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues, and is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this current dispensation and is considered a second blessing subsequent to Salvation and the New Birth. (Matt. 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8, 2:4, 2:38-39 & 19:1-7) 

We Believe In The Gifts Of The Sprit And Divine Healing
We believe that the spiritual gifts and the manifestations of the Holy Spirit are for the common good and the building up of all believers today, (1Cor12:7), and Divine Healing is available to all believers for the physical ills and sicknesses of the body and is manifested by the power of God by the laying on of hands, the prayer of faith and anointing with oil, by believing and acting on the Word of God, through the gifts of the Spirit. Healing is provided for in the Atonement of Christ and is the privilege of every believer and member of the Church today. (Isa. 53:4-5, Matt. 8:17; Mark 11:23, 16:18; Acts 10:38, 19:11-12; Rom. 10:17; 1 Cor. 12:7-11; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24) 

We Believe In The Resurrection Of The Just And The Second Coming Of Our Lord
We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust – one to everlasting life and one to everlasting damnation (Matt. 25:46 and the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth as King of kings and Lord of lords. (Acts 1:11; 1 Thes. 4:16-17) and we believe it is a literal, physical second return of the Lord Jesus Christ……The Messiah……. 

We Believe In Hell And The Lake Of Fire For Eternal Retribution For Satan And All His Fallen Angels
We believe that the one who physically dies in their sins without accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is hopelessly and eternally lost to cast into the Lake of Fire with Satan and all the fallen angels, and therefore; has no further opportunity of hearing or accepting the Gospel to repent. (Heb. 9:27; Rev. 19:20)
