Beliefs

SCRIPTURE
2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21
We believe both the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God and are the infallible and authoritative revelation of God.

ONE GOD
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,1; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22
We believe there is one true God, eternally- and self-existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

DEITY OF JESUS
Matthew 1:23; Hebrews 7:26; Acts 2:22; 1 Corinthians 15:3;
Matthew 28:6; Hebrews 1:3
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ as revealed in Scripture: His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary death on the cross, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father and the hope of His personal and visible future return to Earth.

FALL OF MAN
Genesis 1:26,27; 2:7; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19
We believe man was created good and upright in the image of God. However, man voluntarily sinned and thereby incurred both physical
and spiritual death.

SALVATION
Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8
We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin and attaining eternal life is through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

WATER BAPTISM
Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:37-39
We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus in order to fulfill the command of Christ.

BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31
We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation. With this baptism comes power for life and service and the endowment of spiritual gifts for use in the ministry.

SANCTIFICATION
Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 5:18
We believe sanctification is the act of living a spirit-filled life for the purpose of separation from that which is evil and personal dedication to God.

BODY OF CHRIST
Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 2:22; Hebrews 12:23
We believe the church is the Body of Christ, which is the habitation of God through the Spirit, carrying the divine responsibility of fulfilling the Great Commission.

DIVINE HEALING
Isaiah 53:4-5; Acts 4:30; James 5:14-16
We believe the healing of the body by divine power was provided in the atonement as a privilege for all believers.
