Statement of Faith

We believe in one God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of the Living God was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, buried, and resurrected (1 Corinthians 15:3-5).  He ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and is truly God and truly man.

We believe in the resurrection of the dead (1 Thessalonians 4:14-16), the eternal happiness of the saved (John 3:16), and the eternal punishment of the lost (2 Thessalonians 1:5-10).

We believe in the personal salvation of believers through the blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe in sanctification through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness, purity of heart, and life.

We believe in divine healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in redemption.

We believe in water baptism and in baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the new birth, in speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4). We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and the evidence of the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). We believe that all of these are available to all believers.

We believe in the Christian’s hope – the soon-coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe in evangelism, discipleship, and missionary work in accordance with the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
