WHat we believe
NO ego's, Just Worship
The Bible is the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. There is one God eternally existent in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in:
1.•The deity of Jesus Christ
2.•His virgin birth
3.•His sinless life
5.•His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood
6.•His bodily resurrection
7.•His ascension to the right hand of the Father
8.•His personal return to power and glory
The salvation of every man is essential, resulting in eternal life in heaven. They that are lost are condemned to eternal damnation in hell.
According to: John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
God desires that all come to repentance and accept God’s gift of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.
WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER AND GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, MIRACLES AND FAITH.
We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, irrevocable and complete Word of God.
The Holy Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16,17):
We believe God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the three in one.
The Eternal Godhead (1 John 5:7):
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection.
The Fall of Man (Romans 5:12):
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord.
Basis of Salvation (John 3:16; Romans 5:8, Romans 10:9-10):
We believe that before salvation we have no righteousness of our own and must come to God through the righteousness of Christ.
Salvation Through Grace (Ephesians 3:8):
We believe that upon sincere repentance and a wholehearted acceptance of Christ as Lord, we are justified before God.
Repentance and Acceptance (1 John 1:9):
We believe that the change which takes place in the Heart and life at conversion is a literal one and is the result of being born of the Spirit of God.
The New Birth (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20; John 3:5-7):
We believe that it is the will of God that we live a sanctified and holy life, growing constantly in the Faith.
Daily Christian Life (Hebrews 6:1):
We believe that baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of the inward work of salvation.
Water Baptism (Matthew 28:19):
We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the bread and the juice of the vine.
The Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:28):
We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power, and that His empowering is after the same manner as in Bible days.
Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8; 2:4):
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit continually.
The Spirit-Filled Life (Ephesians 4:30-32):
We believe that the Holy Spirit bestows gifts upon the Christian and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life.
The Gifts and the Fruit of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22-23; Romans 12:6-8; Ephesians 4:11-13):
We believe that all truth must be balanced with other scriptural truth in order to avoid any extreme 4 of fanaticism and we believe that moderation should show forth in our daily walk as a believer.
Moderation and Balance (Philippians 4:5):
We believe that divine healing is the provision of Christ to heal the sick in response to the exercise of faith, the prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement, anointing with oil, the gifts of healing or the laying on of hands. We believe that this provision is for everyone today.
Divine Healing (1 Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:17; 18:18-19; James 5:14-16; 1 Corinthians 2:9; Mark 16:15-18; Matthew 24:35; Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33):
We believe that the Second Coming of Christ is literal and inevitable.
The Second Coming (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17):
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify and actively participate with the local and visible Church of Christ.
Church Membership (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25):
We believe that the laws of the land should be upheld at all times except in matters opposed to the Word of God.
Civil Government (Romans 13:1-5):
We believe that all shall stand one day before God in final judgment, and there receive eternal reward or eternal judgment.

Evangelism (James 5:20; Mark 16:15; 2 Corinthians 5:18-21):
We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by the giving of tithes and free-will offerings.
Tithes and Offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7; Hebrews 7:8):
We believe that “acceptable” and “true” worship is prescribed by God Himself in His Word. This embodies individual and corporate expressions of praise and thanksgiving and reverence in holiness.
Worship (John 4:24; Psalm 150):
We believe in church government to ensure order, and we believe in loyalty to those acting in rightful authority as they lead us in the Lord.
Church Government (1 Peter 5:1-5; Romans 13):
We believe that in essentials there must be unity, in non-essentials, understanding, and, in all things, love.
Unity, Understanding, and Love (1 Corinthians 13:13):
