What We Believe

 

The Holy Scriptures

                We believe the Bible is God-inspired.

                (I Timothy 3:16,17)

The Eternal Godhead

                We believe God is triune:  Father, Son &

                Holy Spirit.  (2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Fall of Man

                We believe that man was created in the image

                of God, and that man, by voluntary disobedience,

                fell from perfection.  (Romans 5:12)

The Plan of Salvation

                We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ

                died for us, signing the pardon of all that believe

                on Him.  (John 3:16; Romans 5:8)

Salvation Through Grace

                We believe that we have no righteousness and must

                come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ.

                (Ephesians 2:8)

Repentance and Acceptance

                We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a

                whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified

                before God.  (1John 1:9)

The New Birth

                We believe that at conversion there is a real change

                that takes place in the heart and life.

                (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20)

Daily Christian Life

                We believe that it is the will of God that we be

                sanctified (set apart) daily, growing constantly in our

                understanding of the faith.  (Hebrews 6:1)

Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

                We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward

                sign of an inward work (Matthew 23:19).  We believe

                in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the

                symbolical use of bread and juice of the vine.

                (1 Corinthians 11:24,25)

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

                We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is to

                endue the believer with power, and that His

                incoming is after the same manner as in the Bible

                days.  (Acts 2:4)

 

The Spirit Filled Life

                We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in

                the Spirit daily.  (Ephesians 4:30-32)

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

                We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow

                upon Christians; and that we should show spiritual

                fruit as evidence of a spirit-filled life.

                (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:2)

Moderation

                We believe that the experience and daily walk of the

                believer should never lead him into extremes of

                fanaticism. (Philippians 4:5)

Divine Healing

                We believe that divine healing is the expressed

                power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the

                prayer of faith.  (James 5:14-16)

The Second Coming of Christ

                We believe that the Second Coming of Christ is

                personal and imminent.  (1Thessalonians 4:16,17)

 

Church Relationship

                We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves

                with the visible Church of our Lord Jesus Christ.

                (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25)

Civil Government

                We believe that rulers should be upheld and obeyed

                at all times except in things opposed to the will of

                God clearly stated in the scriptures.  (Romans 13:1-5)

The Eternal Judgment

                We believe that all shall stand some day before the

                judgment seat of God; and there receive eternal life or

                death.  (2 Corinthians 5:10)

Heaven

                We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of

                born-again believers.  (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17)

Hell

                We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for

                all who reject Christ as the one and only Savior.

                (Revelation 20:10,15)

Evangelism

                We believe that soul winning is the most important

                responsibility of the church.  (James 5:20)

Tithes and  Offerings

                We believe that the method ordained of God for the

                support and spread of His cause is the giving of tithes

                (first fruits, most commonly the first 10% of one’s

                income) and freewill offerings (above and beyond

                your tithe).  (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7)
