Statement of Faith

We believe in...

- The Holy Bible, both Old and New Testaments, as the verbally inspired Word of God.

-The one true God, revealed in the Scriptures as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

-The creation of man as good, the fall of man from his original state into sin from which he has no power to redeem himself.

-The all-sufficient atonement by the blood of Jesus Christ, God's Son, to cleanse anyone who believes on Him from sin, and salvation through faith in Christ alone.

-Water baptism, as taught in the Scriptures, identifies the believer with the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

-A life of holiness and separation from the world and sin, no longer serving them, but serving the Lord with a pure heart.

-The baptism of the Holy Spirit as a separate, distinct experience, subsequent to salvation, providing power for life and service, accompanied with speaking in tongues.

-The church as the Body of Christ, a group of "called out ones", chosen to reveal God's plan and purpose in the earth, and the local expression of this church functioning according to New Testament order and organization.

-The manifestation of all nine gifts of the Holy Spirit in the local assembly, God dividing the gifts among the believers severally as He wills.

-The laying on of hands by qualified and anointed ministry for blessing, dedication, confirmation, healing, ordination, and impartation of spiritual gifts.

-Individual and collective praise and worship. All expressions of praise recorded in the Old and New Testaments are meant for practice in the church today.

-The restoration to the church of all that the prophets have spoken, and the subsequent visual and bodily return of Jesus Christ to set up His kingdom on the earth.

-The promise of eternal life for all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as their Lord and Savior, and eternal damnation for those who reject Him and die in their sins.
