The Statement of Our Faith
The Inspired Scripture
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.
(2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)
The One True God
We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isaiah 43:10, 11; Matthew 28:19)
The Blessed Hope
We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.
(1 Thessalonians 4:16; Romans 6:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51,52)
The Salvation of Man
We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.
The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life.
(Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Romans 10:13-15; Luke 24:47)
The inward evidence to the believer of his/her salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit.
The outward evidence to all men is a life of holiness.
(1 Thessalonians 4:7, 2 Tim.1:9)
We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
(John 6:44, 65)
We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.
(Isaiah 53:4, 5; Matthew 8:16, 17; Mark 16:18; John 5:14)
The Promise Of The Father
We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for Him. All believers should ardently expect and earnestly seek the Promise of the Father, which is the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes the infilling of power for life and service, and the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
(Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31)
This experience may be distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the New Birth.
(Acts 2:38; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9)
The Sanctification Process
We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world.
(Hebrews 12:14; 1 Peter 1:15, 16; 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 24; 1 John 2:6)
