Statement of Faith

We believe in one Lord, one faith, and one baptism.      Ephesians 4:5

We believe that the Holy Bible is the word of God.  It is true.  It contains the keys to inheriting eternal life and it reveals the mystery of our faith.     John. 5:39; Deuteronomy 29:29

We believe in the oneness of God, who was the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and today, He is the Holy Ghost in the Church.        I Timothy 3:16

We believe that Jesus is God, for in Christ all the fullness of the deity lives in bodily form.  We proclaim Lord Jesus Christ is the name of God that was given to his generation as the only name whereby the people of this grace dispensation of time can be saved.             Colossians 2:9; Acts 4:12

We accept God's plan of salvation of baptism by water and spirit.  Jesus Christ, who was our perfect example, though sinless, was baptized to fulfill righteousness.             John 3:5; Matthew 3:15

We believe that water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ is essential for remission of sins, and confirms our belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.      Acts 2:38; Acts 8:37

We believe that rebirth by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential today as it was in the days of the apostles.            Acts 2:4

We believe that the word of God must be proclaimed throughout all the world, according to God's commandment.        Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:15; Romans 10:18

Our blessed hope lies in Christ Jesus our Lord who has given us the victory over death and hell.  Therefore, standing firm on his promise, we anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ that is to be the great day of resurrection.  On that day, the dead in Christ shall rise first.  Then, we which are alive and remain will be changed, and caught up together with them in the air.  And so shall we forever be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.         John 14:3; I Corinthians 15:51-58; I Thessalonians 4:15-17

We believe the church is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone.                     Ephesians 2:20

We believe in the five fold ministry of the apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastor and teacher for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry and for the edifying of the body of Christ.                Ephesians 4:11-12

We believe in the gifts of the spirit and that they are in operation today in the church and ministry.  We believe in healing, miracles and manifestation of God's power to meet the needs of his people.     I Corinthians 12:13-14
