Statement of Faith

We Believe:

A. The Bible, containing 66 books, is the Word of God.  The Holy Spirit revealed the original autographs to man.

B. God reveals Himself in His Word as the One True self-existent God who manifests Himself to His creatures in creation, jurisdiction, and redemption through a Triune Personality, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 

C. The Son (our Lord Jesus Christ), Who was of the Father anointed and positioned to execute the plan of redemption, took upon Himself a prepared body by being conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died in this body "for our sins" according to the Scriptures, and was buried and rose again from the dead and ascended into Heaven where He now abides at the Father's right hand as our Intercessor and Advocate. 

D. The Holy Spirit, proceeding from the Father and the Son, is one Substance, Majesty, and Glory with the Father and the Son; The Comforter, Guide, and Empowerer of God's Children. The personal baptism in the fullness of the Holy Spirit may and should be experienced by any fully consecrated child of God for enduement of power for life and service. 

E. Man fell from a holy state and position into sin and therefore all men are lost and cannot, by their own effort, save themselves. Salvation is by GRACE through Faith in Christ's substitutionary sacrifice on the cross for sin. There is no other means of salvation. 

F. The ordinance of Baptism is an outward symbol of an inward work of Grace. It witnesses to the experience that is set forth in I Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 6:1-11; Colossians 2:11-14; and Ephesians 2:5-6. 

G. The ordinance of The Lord's Supper is a symbol of the believer's sharing of the Divine Nature of our Lord, a memorial of His suffering and death for the lost and a proclamation of His second coming.

H. The punishment of the lost in Hell and the reward of the saved are clearly taught in the Bible. Hell, and Heaven are both literal and real. "Whatsoever a man sows, that also shall he also reap." and "They were judged every man according to their own works." 

I. The Church is the true company of believers in Christ Jesus, known in the Scriptures as the Body of Christ (I Corinthians 12:27). The Church together with the "Head" (Colossians 1:18) has been baptized by the Holy Spirit into the spiritual entity or organism through which the Holy Spirit is heralding the Gospel of Redemption to the lost world.
