We Believe

We Believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit and that they only constitute the Divine Rule of Christian faith and practice.

We Believe  there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect; the Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things and who is the only proper Object of  worship.

We Believe there are three Persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; undivided in essence and coequal in power and glory.

We Believe that Jesus Christ was God made manifest in the flesh; truly and properly God and truly and properly man, and that He by His suffering and death made atonement for sin, and that by His resurrection there is eternal life for all who believe.

We Believe that since the fall and spiritual death of our first parents man is entirely unable in his own strength to find salvation and reconciliation with God and that he is wholly dependent upon God's grace and mercy.

We Believe that salvation and the rebirth of man’s spirit comes by God's grace, and depends upon repentance, faith in God, cleansing by the shed blood of Jesus, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.

We Believe that baptism in water is a personal and dynamic meeting with God and a sign of the believer's death, burial and resurrection in Christ Jesus.

We Believe it is the privilege of all believers, in response to the command of God's Word, to receive the power of the Holy Spirit to live holy and victorious lives, and that the Holy Spirit operates through gifts, ministries and manifestations to glorify Jesus through His Body to the world.

We Believe that Jesus Christ, at the time of His ascension into Heaven, where He now sits at the right hand of the Father, gifted the Church with living ministry expressions of Himself through apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, for the building up of the Body of Christ and the equipping of the believers to the work of service.

We Believe that neither ritual, tradition, ceremony nor rite can replace conversion, relationship with God, and true worship, and that nothing less than the Lordship of Christ upon a life is the mark of a Christian and that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through personal faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is Head.

We Believe that marriage is the physical, social and spiritual union between a man and a woman instituted by God for the protection, propagation and stability of society through the building of the family and that it stands as a testimony to the mystical union between Christ and His Bride, The Church.

We Believe that sexual relationships are a gift from God to enhance the intimacy, security and depth of the marriage relationship and by which the procreation of children may be achieved under His blessing and to His glory. Furthermore, we hold to the biblical position that sexual relationships outside the covenant of marriage are degrading to intimacy and trust, and detestable to God and that without repentance those who participate in such cannot inherit His kingdom.

We Believe in the continuance of the Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, as instituted by Jesus with His disciples, so that we may truly discern the Body of Christ in its totality, unity, and authority, and that this celebration stands as a memorial of Christ's suffering and death and as a prophecy of His coming, and as such is commanded to all His followers until that Day.

We Believe it is the Commission of the Church to go into the whole world to preach the gospel and extend the Kingdom of God, knowing that "this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached to the whole world for a witness to all nations, and then shall the end come.” 

We Believe in the physical, triumphant return of Jesus Christ to claim His Bride, a glorious Church who will stand as overcomers - as Christ has said - through a season of “great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will, and immediately after the tribulation of those days the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the peoples of the earth shall see [Him] coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And at this time He will gather together the redeemed of the Lord.”

We Believe in the judgment of God; in the eternal punishment of the wicked, and everlasting happiness of the righteous.
