Doctrinal Statement

We believe that the Bible is the inspired infallible word of God, written by holy men of old as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (II Peter 1:21)

We believe in one God who is infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purposes, as well as omniscient and omnipresent.

We believe that He was revealed to us as father in creation, as son in redemption and as Holy Spirit in His grace that never leaves those who trust in Him. (John 1:1-14)

We believe that in Jesus dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, for it pleased the Father that in Him should all the fullness dwell. (Colossians 2:9)

We believe in the virgin birth. (Matthew 1:21)  Jesus was both human and divine: God manifested in the flesh. (I Timothy 3:16)

We believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. (I Corinthians 15:1-11)

We believe that He ascended on high and has sent His spirit, the Holy Ghost, which was poured out at Jerusalem over 1900 years ago, and it is this same spirit that is filling the hearts of those who diligently seek Him today. (Acts 2:1-4)

We believe in baptism in water by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, speaking in other tongues as the spirit gives utterance.  This constitutes the new birth. (Acts 2:38, Acts 19:5-6)

We believe in a holy, sanctified life. (Romans 12:1)  We believe in divine healing, communion and foot washing. (John 13:1-15)

We believe also in the glorious catching away (the rapture) of the saints when Jesus returns in the clouds in glory to take His people to heaven. (I Corinthians 1:23-31, I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We believe that Jesus is the only saving name (Acts 4:12) ... and whatsoever you do in word or in deed, do all in the name of Jesus. (Colossians 3:17)
