What We Believe
That the Old and New Testament are divinely breathed, infallible, inerrant as originally given and are the complete revelation of God’s plan for the salvation of man.
In one God who is infinitely perfect, existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In Jesus Christ as true God and true Human Being. He was born of a virgin, lived in sinless humanity and died upon the cross, the just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, that all who believe in Him may be justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead and now is at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our High Priest.
That salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all people, and those who repent and believe in Him will be born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become children of God.
In the present day reality and need for the post-conversion experience of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial scriptural evidence of speaking in tongues, and in the use of supernatural gifts in public and private devotion and worship in the life of the believer, in the healing of the body by Divine Power as practiced in the early church.
In the local church as a body of believers who meet together for the worship of God for edification, prayer, fellowship and to participate in the ordinance of believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
That the Second Coming of the Lord is imminent and will be personal, visible, and pre-millennial. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital incentive to holy living and faithful service.
