Statement of Faith
- We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative Word of God.
- We believe the God head consists of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father.
- We believe in the universal sinfulness and guilt of all mankind since the fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
- We believe in the salvation of lost and sinful man only through the redeeming blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
- We believe in the keeping power of God for a holy walk, not after the flesh but after the Spirit.
- We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the present ministry of the Spirit in and through believers.
- We believe that divine healing is obtained on the basis of the Atonement.
- We believe in Christ’s imminent personal return in power and great glory, in His millennial reign and His everlasting dominion.
- We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.
- We believe in evangelistic and missionary fervor.
