What We Believe

We believe the whole canon of Scripture (both Old and New Testaments) as originally given, to be the inspired and authoritative Word of God, of supreme and final authority in all that it teaches and declares.

We believe in one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in both the deity and humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ. His virgin birth, His sinless life, His atoning death, and His bodily resurrection. We believe in His present rule as the head of the church and His promised return in glory and power.

We believe the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the body as well as for the mind, soul, and spirit of man. Christ has an answer for every problem of man, both physical and spiritual.

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He indwells the believer, regenerates, guides us into all truth, comforts, and helps us to pray as we ought. All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek, the promise of the Father, which is the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and Fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.

We believe in the 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.
