believe

  • We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, are verbally inspired by God; the revelation of God to man; the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:15-17)

  • We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has been revealed as One God existing in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; coeternal, coequal; distinguishable but indivisible (Matthew 28:19)

  • We believe in the creation and fall of mankind. We believe in mankind’s spiritual depravity and inability to attain to Divine Righteousness (Romans 5:12,18)

  • We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, fully God and fully man. We believe that He died on the cross, was buried and on the third day was bodily resurrected. We believe that He personally appeared to the disciples and bodily ascended into heaven to the right hand of His Father (John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25)

  • We believe in salvation by grace through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12,22; Romans 5:22)

  • We believe that the purposes of the Church are as follows: being a corporate body in which man may worship God, being a channel of God’s purposes in the earth and being an organism for training and equipping the Body of Christ for evangelism, service and other works of ministry (1 Corinthians 12:13; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 12:28; 1 Corinthians 14:12)

  • We believe in the present supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit including the indwelling, inner workings and baptism of His person in the believer. We believe in the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian faith. We believe in the multiplicity of spiritual gifts and supernatural signs that follow those who believe. Some of which include: words of knowledge, faith, gifts of healings, workings of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, various kinds of tongues and their interpretation (2 Corinthians 7:1; Acts 4:30; Romans 12:1-2; Romans 8:11; Hebrews 2:3-4; Acts 2:1-4; 1 Corinthians 12-14)

  • We believe the Kingdom of God has come in the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ. It continues to come in the ministry of the Spirit through the Church and it will be consummated in the glorious appearing of Christ as the King of kings and Lord of lords. (Daniel 7:13-14; Matthew 4:23; Matthew 12:28; Matthew 6:10; Matthew 10:7-8; Matthew 24:14; Mark 13:11; John 15:26-27; Romans 14:17-18; Mark13:26; Acts 1:9-11; 2 Thessalonians 2:8; Revelation 19:11-16)
