Statement of Faith

1)  The Bible as the inspired and infallible Word of God.  (II Timothy 3:15,16)


2)  There is one God, eternally existent in three Persons, Father, Son & Holy Spirit.  (Matthew  28:19; II Corinthians 13:14)


3)  Man was created good and upright, for God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our  likeness". But, man, by voluntary sin, fell and is now unable to obtain a right relationship with  God on his own. His only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7: Romans 5:12-21)


4)  The Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man.  (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 9:6)


5)  That Jesus died for our sins, was buried, rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples.  (I Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25)


6) Man's only hope of salvation is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. We cannot obtain salvation by working for it, but it is a free gift available to every person who is willing to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (Romans 3:24; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:8-10).


7)  Water baptism is through immersion to demonstrate a believer's new life and to fulfill the command of Christ. (Matthew 28:19)


8)  Communion, the Lord’s Table is symbolic of the body and blood of the Lord.  (I Corinthians 11:28-32)


9)  The baptism in the Holy Spirit as an experience which follows salvation with the Scriptural evidence of speaking in other tongues.  (Acts 2:1-4; Acts 19:1-6)


10)  Divine healing is part of the work of Christ on the cross.  (Isaiah 53:4; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:13,14) Faith in God's supernatural healing does not mean we cannot go to doctors or use medicines. 


11) The operation of the gifts of the Spirit as mentioned in I Corinthians  chapters 12 - 14.


12) The sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit which enables a believer to live a holy life.  (Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15,16)


13) The Resurrection of the just and the return of the Lord.  (I Thessalonians 4:16,17; Acts 24:15; Revelation 19:7-9)
