Statement of Beliefs:

  1. The Bible is the inspired Word of God.  The Bible in its entirety is the only infallible rule of Christian faith and conduct.  (I Thessalonians. 2:13; II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:21).
  2. There is one True God.  God is Maker of all things and exists in the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22)
  3.  Jesus Christ is God.  Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God Who was incarnated when He was begotten by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary.  He is true God and true Man.  (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35; Hebrews 7:26; I Peter 2:22; Acts 2:22 and 10:38; I Corinthians 15:3-4; II Corinthians 5:21; Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; Acts 1:9-11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11).
  4. The Fall of Man and Original Sin.  God created man in His image, perfect and complete.  However, man voluntarily sinned against God causing death, both physical and spiritual, to come upon the whole human race. (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19).
  5. The Salvation of Man.  Personal salvation of believers is received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who took the penalty of sin in the sinner’s place.  (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7).
  6. Ordinances of the Church.  Water Baptism is a covenant sign of repentance and identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  All who repent and believe in Christ as Saviour are to be baptized (Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4).  Holy Communionor the Lord’s Supper, is the symbol expressing the divine nature of Jesus Christ (II Peter 1:4).  It is a memorial of His suffering and death and a prophecy of His second coming (I Corinthians 11:26).  Communion should be enjoined by all believers until the return of Jesus Christ.
  7. Baptism in the Holy Spirit.  The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is given to believers for power to serve God (Acts 1 & 2).  All believers who receive this gift from God speak in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (Acts 2:4; 10: 44-46; 19:6).  The nine spiritual gifts of the Spirit should be in orderly operation in the Church (I Corinthians 12-14).
  8. Sanctification.  Believers experience sanctification by the blood of Jesus Christ.  Sanctification produces a personal holiness of heart and life and separation from the world (Romans 12:1-2; I Thessalonians. 5:23; Heb. 13:12).
  9. Divine Healing.  Divine healing is provided for in the atonement (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16; James 5:14-16).
  10. The Blessed Hope.  The Rapture of the Church, the visible return of Christ with his saints to reign on earth (called the Millennial Reign) and the final establishment of God’s eternal Kingdom on earth are all a part of the Blessed Hope of Believers (Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27&30; Revelation 1:7, 19:11-14; 20: 1-6; Ezekiel  37:21-22; Zephaniah 3:19-20; Romans 11:26-27; Isaiah 11:6-9; Micah 4:3-4).
  11. The Final Judgement.  Unbelievers, Satan, demon spirits and fallen angels will be judged and confined to the lake of fire forever (Revelation 21:8; Matthew 25: 46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15).
