What We Believe
 
 The Holy Bible is the inspired and infallible authoratative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16)
The Holy Bible is the revelation from God to man and is the rule of faith
and conduct.
 
The One True Godhead:  The triune Godhead is composed of three (3) separate and distinct personalities, which are the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The three are One and are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and Creator of all things.
 
The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ:  His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His personal return in power and glory. (1 Corinthians 15:3; 1 Peter 2:23-24; and John 3:16)
 
The Fall and Redemption of Man:  Man was created sinless, good and upright. He was made in the image and likeness of God. But man fell by voluntary transgression.  Therefore every person comes into this world physically alive but spiritually dead.  Through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God has provided for the salvation of lost and sinful man. The regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential to salvation. One must be born again to have eternal life. (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21; Galatians 4:4-7; and John 3:16)
 
Baptism in Water:  The ordinance of baptism signifies burial with Christ and resurrection of a new life in Christ. It is a public testimony of the believer’s new life in Christ.  “Therefore, we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4 NKJ) (See also: Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48)
 
Baptism of the Holy Spirit:  The full consummation of the baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit give utterance and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public service. (Acts 1:8, 2:42-43, 10:44-46, and 19:2-6; Matthew 3:11)
 
The Lord’s Supper:  “And when He (Jesus) had given thanks, He brake it, and said, ‘Take, eat: this is My Body which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me.’ After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, ‘This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till He come.’” (1 Corinthians 11:24-26 NKJ)
 
The Church: The church is the body of Christ of which He is the head. “And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church which is His body, the fulness of Him that filleth all in all.” (Ephesians 1:22-23 NKJ) The church consists of all those who have been born again and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body. . .and have been all made to drink into one Spirit for the body is not one member, but many.” (1 Corinthians 12:13-14 NKJ)

The Blessed Hope:  Commonly called the “rapture of the church” or the “catching away of the saints,” Jesus is coming in the clouds to gather all His saints to heaven. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; and 2 Thessalonians 2:1) “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.” (Titus 2:13 NKJ)
 
The Tribulation:  “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:21 NKJ) (See also Matthew 24; and Revelation 6:19)
 
The Millennial Reign of Jesus:  The return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His saints from heaven to rule and reign for one thousand years on earth. (2 Thessalonians 1:7; and Revelation 19:11-16, 20:1-7) The resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:24-29)
 
Hell and the Lake of Fire:  Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead. The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophets and anyone whose name is not found written in the book of life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which burns with fire and brimstone. This is the second death. (2 Thessalonians 1:8-9; and Revelation 19:20 and 20:10-15)
