What We Believe
There is One God – (Deuteronomy 6:4); Who as Father, is the source of all things (Genesis 1:1); in the Son is made manifest to the world (I Timothy 3:16); and as the Holy Ghost, dwells in men (John 14:17, 18). (Jude 1:25, Malachi 3:6, Colossians 2:9).
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe that in Jesus Christ dwells the fulness of the Godhead (Colossians 2:9). We believe that God came to us manifested in the flesh as Jesus Christ, born of a virgin (Matthew 1:23); that he lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), was crucified on Calvary for our sins (Matthew 26:28), and bodily rose from the grave (Romans 6:9); and that he has been exalted to the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5). We believe that through his death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living (Romans 6:5-7).
We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption (Romans 3:23), which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:28). Those repenting of sin and being born again of the water and Spirit (Acts 2:38, John 3:5), through baptism in Jesus’ name by immersion, and being filled with the Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking in an unknown tongue (Acts 2:4,39), become children of God and heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).
We believe the Church has been “called out” of the world to be a habitation of God through the Spirit (1 Peter 2:9, Ephesians 3:17-19). As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to mankind. The church is one body made up of many members (1 Corinthians 12:12,27), diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit.
THE SECOND COMING.
We believe in the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to receive his bride, the church, unto Himself (John 14:3, Matthew 25:31). At his coming, we believe the dead in Christ will be resurrected from the grave (1 Corinthians 15:52).
