OUR BELIEFS

We have accepted the following Declaration of our Faith and Core beliefs as the standard and official expression of our doctrine.

Declaration of Faith

  1. We believe in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things. (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14)

  2. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, was crucified, dead, buried, resurrected; that He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and is true God and true man. (Luke 1: 26-35; John 1 14-18; Isaiah 7:14, 9:6)

  3. We believe the Bible, in its entirety, to be the inspired Word of God and the only infallible rule of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16; I Corinthians 2:13)

  4. We believe in the Church as the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with each born-again believer as an integral, sovereignly placed, functioning member. (Ephesians 2:21-22, 3:16)

  5. We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12, 22; Romans 5:11)

  6. We believe in water baptism by immersion as a declaration of a “true change of citizenship” and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:34-36, 19:1-6)

  7. We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the visible evidence of the fruit of the Spirit. We believe that all are available to believers today. (I Corinthians 12-14).

  8. We believe in apostolic teachings of the New Testament as the sole authority of the Church governance. 

  9. We believe Holiness to be God’s standard of living for His people.

  10. We believe Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

  11. We believe in prayer, fellowship and breaking of bread.

  12. We believe in tithes and offerings and giving to other similar ministries.

  13. We believe that there is one true universal Church, made up of genuine believers, but this one universal Church is also composed of many local Churches in given localities. (Acts 15:22; with Matthew 16:18, 18:15-20)

  14. We believe in the bodily resurrection, eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.

  15. We believe in the soon-coming, personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 14:2-3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)
