Statement of Faith

We believe:

  • In the One True God, who reveals Himself in three distinct persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Three being one and equal and eternally self-existent as the Great “I AM”. (Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:7)

  • That Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son, born of a virgin, who ministered the love and the will of the Father, was, and is, very God and Creator of all things. (John 1:1-3; John 3:16; John 8:29; Isaiah 7:14)

  • That He was crucified and died for all men, and then overcame death by resurrecting from the grave on the third day that man might have new life in Him. (Acts 2:36; 1Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:17; John 20:31)

  • That He ascended to the Father and is seated at the right-hand of the Father making intercession for us all and has sent forth His Holy Spirit to indwell and empower believers. (Mark 16:19; Acts 2:33-34; John 16:7)

  • That this same Jesus is LORD of all. (Acts 2:36; Revelations 17:14)

  • That He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. (John 14:6)

  • That you must be born-again, receiving Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior, in order to see the Kingdom of God. (John 3:3; Romans 10:9-10)

  • That believers should be baptized with water. (Mark 16:15-16; Acts 2:38)

  • That He will baptize believers with the Holy Ghost and fire. This is according to Acts Chapters One and Two, with the evidence of signs and wonders including speaking with other tongues. (Acts 1:4-5; Acts 2:4; Acts 2:38; Luke 3:16)

  • That all the gifts of the Spirit are operable in the Church of Jesus Christ today. (1 Corinthians 12:1-12)

  • That the Bible is the inspired Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16)

  • That the LORD Jesus Christ will return. (1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; Acts 1:9-11)

  • In unity of other followers of Christ, the one and only Son of God, in the fellowship of the “Church” in love and worship of Jesus Christ as LORD, in one accord. (John 17:1-26; Ephesians 4:4)

  • That God is no respecter of persons, for, in Christ “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28; Acts 10:34)

  • That as believers we have been given a universal commission to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel.” (Mark 16:15-20; Matthew 28:18-20)

  • As believers we must not forsake the assembling of ourselves together. (Hebrews 10:25)

  • That Church attendance, fellowship, and submission one to another, will play an important part in our service to this world. (Acts 2:42; Hebrews 10:25, Hebrews 13:7, 17)

  • That God has set in the Church the five-fold ministry gifts of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:10-16)
