A Deeper Understanding of Our Beliefs

We Believe in the Bible as God’s only inspired, inerrant and authoritative revelation of Himself to man in written form (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

We Believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7).

We Believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1), His virgin birth (Matthew 1:18), His sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21), His miracles (Acts 10:38), His vicarious death as the only sacrifice for the sin of the world (1 John 2:2), His bodily resurrection from the dead (Luke 24:39), His ascension to the right hand of God as our intercessor (Hebrews 4:14), and His future return to glory first to rapture His church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), and second to establish the kingdom of God upon the earth (Revelation 20:6).We believe in the finality of Christ’s mediation for the redemption of humankind and freedom of access to the Father (1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25).

We Believe in divine healing for the total person, spirit, mind and body and that this healing is accomplished in the redemptive work of Christ on the cross and appropriated in the believer’s life through prayer (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:13-15).

We Believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an enduement of power for all believers (Acts 2:4; 38-39; 10:44-45; 19:1-6: Ephesians 5:18). This baptism results in a deeper expression of spiritual fruit (Galatians 5:22-23), a greater growth in Christlikeness (2 Corinthians 3:18), a genuine manifestation of spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1-11), and a more effective prayer life (Romans 8:26-27).

We Believe in the process of spiritual development (sanctification) accomplished in the believer’s life by the Holy Spirit through submission and obedience.This growth involves a daily dying to sin and living unto righteousness (Romans 6:1-23), finds expression in a holy life (Ephesians 4:24) and will be perfected at the return of Christ (1 John 3:2).

We Believe in the resurrection from the dead. First the righteous unto eternal life and second, the ungodly unto eternal separation (Daniel 12:2; John 5:28-19; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15).

We Believe in the sacraments of the Church established by Jesus Christ our Lord: The Lord’s Supper (Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26) and the baptism by immersion as a witness of the new birth (Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 3:20-22).
