WHAT WE BELIEVE

Our Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE

…that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

(2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:13)

WE BELIEVE

…there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: distinguishable but indivisible.

(Matthew. 28:19; 2 Corinthians. 13:14)

WE BELIEVE

…in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His incarnation, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal and bodily coming again.

(John 1:1, 14; Luke 1:26 – 35; 1 Corinthians 15:1 – 4; Rom. 4:25; John 14:2 – 3; 1 Thessalonians. 4:13 – 18)

WE BELIEVE

…in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in order to fulfill the command of Christ.

(Matthew 3:16; 28:19; Acts 2:37 – 38; Acts 8:36 – 39; 19:1 – 6)

WE BELIEVE

…in the baptism with the Holy Spirit as an experience distinct from regeneration, in speaking in tongues as the privilege of every Spirit-baptized believer, and in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14.

(Acts 2:1 – 4; 8:14 – 17; Acts 10:44; Galatians 3:14 – 15)

WE BELIEVE

…in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.

(Acts 1:8; Romans 8:13; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Galatians 5:22; 1 Peter 1:2)

WE BELIEVE

…in the resurrection of both the saved to everlasting life and the lost to eternal damnation.

(John 5:24; 3:16; Mark 9:43 – 50; 2 Thessalonians 1:8 – 9; Revelation 20:10 – 15)

WE BELIEVE

…in the reality and personality of Satan and the eternal judgment of Satan and his angels.

(Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10 – 15)
