What We Believe

THE BIBLE

is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21

THERE IS ONE GOD

eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:11, 19; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22

IN THE DEITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST

in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years. Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35; Hebrews 1-3

IN THE BLESSED HOPE

the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming. 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52

IN THE FALL OF MAN

by voluntary transgression, which incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Genesis 1:26, 27, 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19

IN THE ONLY MEANS OF BEING CLEANSED FROM SIN

through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Luke 24:47; Hebrews 9:22, 28, 10:19

REGENERATION BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

to be absolutely essential for personal salvation. Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7

THAT HEALING OF THE HUMAN BODY

in answer to believing prayer is provided by the redemptive work of Christ on the cross. Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:14-16

THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it. Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4, 8:12-17, 10:44-46, 11:14-16, 15:7-9; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31. The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance. Acts 2:4, 10:44-46, 19:6

IN THE SANCTIFYING POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life. Romans 12:1,2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12, 12:14; 1 Peter 1:15, 16; Romans 6:1-11, 13, 8:1,2,13; Galatians 2:12, 13; 1 Peter 1:5

IN THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH AS BEING BAPTISM

by water by immersions, which is commanded in scripture for all who repent and believe on Christ as Savior and Lord. Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47, 48; Romans 6:4; and Holy Communion, consisting of elements, as the symbol of expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 Peter 1:4 is a memorial of His suffering and death. 1 Corinthians 11:26; and is a prophesy of His Second Coming, 1 Corinthians 11:26. It is enjoined on all believers "Till He Come." We further believe that in neither of these two Scriptural ordinances is there any saving power from sin nor do they become a means of entry into heaven.

IN THE RESURRECTION OF BOTH THE SAVED AND THE LOST

the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation (condemnation) and in the final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20, 20:11-15, 21:8

IN THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH

2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21-22
