WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and are the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age, to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. Man - Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. We believe in receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues; we believe the God is still manifesting His power through the various gifts and offices of the Holy Spirit [prophecy, administration, gift of healing, gift of interpretation, miracles, signs and wonders].
The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God. The Return of Jesus Christ - The personal, pre-millennial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope and has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
Sanctification is an on-going process of deliverance and transformation. After receiving Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we are now in the process of sanctification. Daily, we take up our cross and deny our flesh to become more like Christ through words and deeds. Sanctification is a daily part of our sacrifice to constantly improve our faith, behavior and be delivered from the ways of the world.
There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
The true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, has been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.
BAPTISM AND COMMUNION
Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life. The Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only believers should share in it.
PRAYER AND FASTING
We believe in the power of prayer and that God will respond to our every call. We believe in the healing of the sick and that they shall recover; we believe that prayer should be the foundation of our lives following the instructions of Jesus that men should always pray. The next level of prayer is fasting; fasting is a physical sacrifice for spiritual results. We stand on the promise that the prayers of the righteous availeth much.
