Our Beliefs

The One True God

The Father is the fullness of God invisible. The Son is the embodiment of God’s fullness in flesh. The Holy Ghost is the fullness of God in the church by 
emanation. We believe in one God who manifested Himself as Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Ghost in regeneration. 
Deut. 6:4; Isa. 43:10&11; Isa. 45:21; Hosea 13:4; Mark 12:29&32; I Cor.8: 4-6; I Tim. 2:5; James 2:19.

The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

We affirm the primitive Christian view that Jesus Christ was both fully human and divine making Him the fullness of the Godhead manifest in the flesh. We also believe in Christ’s virgin birth, sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary death on the cross and His bodily resurrection. 
II Cor. 5:18; Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:23; Heb. 4:15; Acts 10:38; II Cor. 5:21; Acts 2:31&32; John 1:1&14; John 10:30; Co!. 2:9; Col. 1:19; II Cor. 4:6; I Tim. 4:10; Titus 2:13; Jude 25.

The Bible

The Bible is the divinely-inspired Word of Almighty God. Holy men of old wrote as the Holy Ghost moved on them giving us the inerrant and infallible 
scriptures. No contention is made for a perfect translation and care must be given to interpreting God’s Word as it was intended to be understood maintaining historical and cultural context. We believe the Bible as we know it today is utterly trustworthy and reliable as the final authority for faith and practice. II Tim. 3:16; Matt 24:35.

The Nature of Man

Mankind has an inherited sinful nature resulting from the fall of Adam and Eve. In addition to this, every person has sinned of their own volition and is in 
need of a Savior. PS.51: 5; Rom. 3:23.


Salvation is initiated by God and calls for our surrender and acceptance. It is available to all who will receive it. God’s grace is appropriated through 
faith, which we demonstrate by obeying the New Testament plan of salvation as preached by the early church. Today as back then, a person is saved/born again by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, which is evidenced by obediently identifying with his death, burial, and resurrection. This is accomplished by the Blood of Jesus Christ through the death of our “old man” in repentance; the burial of our sinful nature in baptism; and our 
resurrection to newness of life in the Holy Ghost. These serve as conduits of our faith toward God and His grace toward us. 
John 3:3&5; Mark 16:16; I John 5:8; I Cor. 15:1-4; Heb. 9:22; Rom. 6:6; Rom. 6:4; Titus 3:5; Rom. 8:11; Acts 2:38.

The Baptism of the Holy Ghost

Every believer is urged to seek for and receive the Holy Ghost with the Bible evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. It was 
the expected experience of all who believed, repented and were baptized during the ministry of the Apostles as recorded in the book of Acts. 
Mark 16:17; Acts 2:4; Acts 10:46; Acts 19:6; I Cor. 14:5,18; Rom. 8:9,11,15,&16.

The Church

Those who have responded to the gospel and experienced the new birth comprise the church. They are called out of the darkness of this world to be a light whereby all may hear the gospel of Christ. Those who have been born of the water and Spirit according to Jesus’ command, are the Body of Christ in the earth and are to do the will of the Head, Jesus Christ. The church is also known as the Bride of Christ and bears His Name in covenant relationship. Whereas the church is comprised of redeemed people, born of the Holy Spirit of God and called by His Name, we encourage every believer to live a life of holiness unto the Lord, abstaining from the appearance of evil and all addictions of the flesh. We are to flee worldliness and carnality in pursuit of the righteousness of God in our lives. The church recognizes, believes in, and practices the ordinance of water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ as part of Christian initiation and the ordinance of the Lord’s supper. 
I Tim. 3:15; Ephes. 5:27; I Peter 2:9; John 3:3&5; Rev. 21:2; Acts 15:14; I Peter 1:15&16, I Thess. 5:22; II Cor. 6:17; I John 2:15; Rom. 8:7; Acts 2:38; 
Acts 8:16; Acts 10:48; Acts 19:5; Acts 22:16.

The Mission

The Great Commission is the charge of every believer with empowerment and motivation coming from the Holy Ghost. Each person is to share the gospel wherever they go as the opportunity arises. We are commissioned by the Lord to make disciples of all who have put their faith in Him. In addition to this, the church is called to help relieve the sufferings of those less fortunate; the poor, the infirmed, the orphan, the widow, etc. 
Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47; Acts 1:8; Matt. 25: 35-46; Jas. 1:27; I Cor. 11: 23-30.

Divine Healing

God has provided the means in the atonement whereby sickness and disease can be healed in response to the prayer of faith. 
Luke 10:9; Mark 16:18; Jas. 5:14-16; I Peter 2:24.
