We Believe

We believe the bible is inspired by God, man fell throw sin, and Salvation is for all that believeth in Jesus Christ, by faith. Believers are water baptized and Holy Spirit baptized; the gifts of the Spirit are for today, divine healing and the rapture of believers, exc.

Holy Bible

Only the Holy Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths and interpretation. The Holy scripture is inspired by God. The authorized King James Version is our primary source text.

(2Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26)


There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal.

(1 John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6)

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, the only person ever to have lived a sinless life, died on the cross for mankind thus atoning for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory.

(John 1:1, 14, 20:28; 1Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; 1Timothy 2:5)

Virgin Birth

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God.

(Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35)


God created the first man and woman good and upright, but by voluntary transgression they fell in sin, separating all mankind from God. Humanity's only hope of redemption is in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

(Gen.1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)


Salvation is the means by which God forgives and reconciles those separated by sin back to himself. It is received through repentance of sin and faith toward God. The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. The outward evidence for all people is a life of righteousness and true holiness.

(John 3:3; Romans 1:16, 10:13; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 8:16; Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:11-12, Luke 24:47)


Repentance is the conviction and commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriated salvation.

(Romans 8:1, Acts 2:21, 3:19; 1 John 1:9)


Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God's Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

(1Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11)

Jesus' Blood

The sinless Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross is sufficient to atone for the repentant soul's sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death.

(1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29)

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth. (Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6). It is the will of God that each believer should be continually filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified completely (1 Thessalonians 5:23), being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. (Acts 1:8)

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church and confirm the power of the Gospel. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures.

(Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12:4-8; 2 Timothy 1:6; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10)

The Church

The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit. Every person who is born of the Spirit, is baptized into one body, and is part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

(1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)

Healing of the Sick

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. It is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Jesus' work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil is taught in the Scriptures and is a new covenant privilege for the Church in this present age.

(Psalm 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16; 1 Corinthians 12:9, 28)

Second Coming

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures.

(Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7)


Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of everlasting life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.

(Luke 24:36-39; John 5:28-29, 11:25-26; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23; Philippians 3:21)

The New Heavens and New Earth

We, as promised in the Scriptures, look for a new heavens and a new earth wherein righteousness dwells.

(2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21:1)

Believer's Eternal Reward

Upon death, those who have faith in Jesus Christ and His promises shall inherit the kingdom of God. Paul stated that to be absent from the body was to be present with the Lord. Scripture says angels carry believers to their temporary heavenly home awaiting a future resurrection and a new glorified body. Finally, the meek shall inherit the earth and dwell with God forever.

(Psalm 91:11, Matthew 5:5, Matthew 25:34, Luke16:19-31, 2 Corinthians 5:6-8, Philippians 1:23, Hebrews 1:14, 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1-4)

Hell and The Final Judgment

Upon death, the unbelieving, unrighteous people shall not inherit the kingdom of God. They will be separated from God and tormented in hell. At the final judgment, the second death, whosoever was not written in the Book of Life will be judged and cast into the lake of fire.

(Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Revelation 20:12, 15, 20:12-15, 21:8)


Water Baptism

Following a confession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and of the Son "Jesus" and of the Holy Spirit. This baptism into Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection, should lead us to walk in newness of life. Baptism reflects the answer of a good conscience toward God, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

(Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38, Romans 6:1-6, 1 Peter 3:21)

The Lord's Supper

A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and wine / "grape juice" (representing the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.

(Matthew 26:26-29; 1Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-31)
