What We Believe

We believe in one true and living God, that there are three Manifestations existing in the Godhead-The Father, The Son, and the Holy Ghost. (Romans 1:20-21; Colossians 2:9; 1 st John 5)

We believe in water baptism as commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ (St. Matthew 28:19).

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost and that subsequent speaking with other tongues was the initial evidence. (Acts 1:5-8; Acts 2:2-4 & 38-39; Acts 11:14-17)

We believe that all scripture is given by the inspiration of God and that they are the only rule of faith and practice. (2nd Timothy 3:16)

We believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God that He was conceived of the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary and was without sin; who arose from the dead. (St. Matthew 1:18-25; 1 st Corinthians 15:3-4)

We believe in the doctrine of original sin, and that man is unable to recover himself from the fallen state he is in by nature. (Genesis 3; Psalms 51:5)

We believe that repentance is commanded of God and necessary for forgiveness of sins. (1st John 1:9)

We believe that all have sinned; that justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23)

We believe that holiness is God’s standard of living for His people; and that there is eternal life for the righteous and everlasting punishment for the wicked. (2nd Corinthians 7:1; Psalms 11:6)

We believe that divine healing is included in God’s plan of Salvation. (Isaiah 53:5)

We believe in observance of the Lords Supper. (St. Matthew 26:25-26; 1 st Corinthians 11:2-34)

We believe in foot washing as a sign of humbleness. (St. John 13:5-14)

We believe in tithing and offerings and freewill offerings to be the sole scriptural means of supporting God’s cause on earth. (Malachi 3:8-10)

We believe in the Holy Spirit who convicts the world of sin and that dwells within the believer so he can become a gift to God and the church. (St. John 3:5-8; 1 st Corinthians 5:17; Titus 3:5)

We believe in the 5-fold ministry: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors, and Teachers. (Ephesians 4:11-12)

We believe in speaking in tongues. (Acts 2:4; 1 st Corinthians 12:10; 28)

We believe in the Pre-millennial second coming of Jesus Christ; the resurrection of the righteous dead and the catching-away (the rapture) of the living saints in the air. (1st Thessalonians 4:15-17)
