What We Believe


We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit; that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are never identical as to person, nor confused as to relation, nor divided in respect to the Godhead, nor opposed as to cooperation.  - 1 Peter 1:2

  • Father: We believe God the Father is eternal, omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. God is absolutely holy, righteous, and just. His love and mercy was manifested in the atoning death of His only begotten Son on Calvary. John 3:16
  • Son: We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious suffering and atoning death through HIs shed blood, his bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right Hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.  - Matthew 3:17; 16:16-17; Revelation 19:16; 22:12
  • Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person; convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; is the supernatural agent of God in the regeneration of the lost; indwells all believers, sealing them in the body of Christ unto the day of redemption; is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth; and imparts, "severally as He wills," the nine gifts of the Spirit as found in 1 Corinthians 12.  - John 14:26; Romans 8:14, 16, 26


We believe the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments to be verbally inspired by God, inerrant and infallible in their original writings, and that they are the supreme and final authority for faith and practice. - 

2 Timothy 3:16


We believe that man was originally created in the image of God, but that the whole race of man was separated from God in the sin of Adam. Therefore, we believe no man can reconcile himself with God and thereby gain entrance to His Kingdom unless and until he is born again by the Holy Spirit. - Genesis 2:27; John 3:3, 5; Romans 3:23


We believe that Satan is the author of sin and the cause of the fall of man and that he shall be punished eternally in the lake of fire, which is reserved for the devil and his angels and whosoever is not found in the Book of Life. - Genesis 3:13; Revelation 12:9; 20:10


We believe that salvation is the gift of God by grace alone and is received through repentance and personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God. - Ephesians 2:8; John 3:16; Mark 16:16; Acts 4:12


We believe that heaven is the hope and the home of the saved for eternity, and that hell is a literal place of eternal separation from God for those who are unsaved. - John 14:2-3; Psalms 9:17


We believe that the body of Christ is composed of all born again believers everywhere without respect to race or denomination. We believe that the local church comprises born again believers who come together for mutual worship, instruction, and Christian service. - Colossians 1:18, 3:11, 15; 1 Corinthians 12:28


  • Water Baptism: We believe that baptism in water should be by immersion in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and shall be administered to only those who give evidence of being born again. - Mark 16:16
  • Lord's Supper: We believe that the Lord's Supper is to be observed by all believers. Participants should examine themselves before partaking. It is a memorial of our Lord's suffering and death and is to be observed "until He come." - 1 Corinthians 11:23-26


We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a definite experience, subsequent and additional to His saving work. In being "born of the Spirit" there is an impartation of life, but in the Baptism of the Spirit there is an impartation of power for witnessing. Speaking with other tongues is the initial physical evidence of having received this endowment of power. - Acts 1:8; 2:4


We believe that the Bible teaches a life of holiness "without which no man shall see the Lord." Sanctification is the will of God for all believers and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to the Word of God. - Leviticus 11:45; 20:7-8


We believe that physical healing was provided for in Christ's atoning death and is the privilege of all believers today. Praying for the sick was enjoined in the Great Commission, and is the duty of the church to practice the same. - Isaiah 53:5; James 5:14
