What We Believe: Statement of Faith
We believe in the virgin birth; and that Jesus was both human and divine. God manifested in the flesh.
Matthew 1:23, 1 Timothy 3:16
We believe in the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that He ascended into heaven and sent His Holy Spirit (the comforter).
1 Corinthians 15:20, Acts 2:2-4
We believe the only way into the kingdom of God is through repentance of sin, water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ and affirmation by receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues as the spirit of God gives utterance. Acts 2:38
We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, which was given from God to man through revelation of the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21
We believe that there is only One God. Father in creation, Son in redemption and the Holy Ghost in the church (the body of Christ). He is Omnipotent (He has all power), Omniscient (He knows all things), and Omnipresent (He’s present everywhere at the same time).
1 Corinthians 8:6, Ephesians 4:5-6, 2Corinthians 3:17
We believe that in Jesus Christ dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Colossians 1:19, Colossians 2:9
We believe that we are saved by grace through faith and are created by Christ Jesus unto good works. Ephesians 2:8-10
We believe in living a Holy and Sanctified life. 2 Corinthians 7:1, 1 Peter 1:16-19
We believe in taking Communion (partaking of the Lord’s body and blood) and also in the washing of feet. 1 Corinthians 11:24-25, John 13:8, John 13:12-17
We believe the Lord shall return, coming back for His bride (The Church). We believe when He returns, that (The Church) shall be Raptured.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
