STATEMENT OF FAITH
 
We Believe...

The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Man was created in the image of God, and that by transgression fell, bringing mankind the curse including physical and spiritual death, into the world.

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His personal return to this earth in power and glory.

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God's grace through faith alone are we saved.

In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to overcome sin and live a holy life.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.  It is a personal coming of God to empower them for Christian service.

That Jesus Christ through His atonement provides healing for our physical bodies through God's grace, gifts, laying on of hands, anointing with oil, and simple faith alone.

That God through Jesus Christ has provided for the believer deliverance from all the power of Satan.

In the Ordinances given to the Church by Jesus Christ: Baptism by immersion and Communion (Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.

The Church universal consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. Its purpose is to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ by evangelizing, destroying the works of the enemy and disciplining believers to love and obey God. In doing so, it enables believers to live victoriously and fulfill God's plan for them.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation.
