DOCTRINAL BELIEFS

We Believe:

In one God manifest in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, co-equal and co-eternal (Ge. 1:1; Ma. 6:9; Jo. 1:1-5; Ac. 4:12; Jo. 14:26).

 

We Believe:

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. In His perfect humanity and the perfect Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His substitutionary death on the Cross His burial, His bodily resurrection. He ascended to heaven’s glory, His millennial and second coming for the saints again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Ro. 3:23; 5:12).

 

We Believe:

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under his control daily (Ro. 10:9-10; Jo 3:16).

 

We Believe:

In the Bible as the infallible Word of God, and that, “All Scripture is given by the inspiration of God. Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God (2 Ti. 3:16; Ma. 5:18; Lu. 18:1, 11:17; Ma. 11:7; 1 Jo. 5:14; Ro. 8: 26-27, 34; Ma. 6).

 

We Believe:

Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works “only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Hebrews 9:22; Ro. 10:9-10).

 

We Believe:

That all those who accepted Christ as their Savior are born again and are members of the Church, which is the body and Bride of Christ (Ma. 16:18; Ac. 2:1; Ro. 12:5; 1 Co. 12:12-13, 20; Eph. 4:4; 5:27; He. 10:25; Malachi 3:6-12; 1 Co. 16:1-2).

 

We Believe:

In eternal security of the believer, the personality of satan, he was created perfect but fallen through pride and became the originator of sin, and enemy of God, and he is the god of this world. Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian (1 Co. 15:31; Jo. 10: 28-29).

 

We Believe:

In the fall of man by believing satan's lies, and his condemnation as a sinner, which includes all mankind in eternal punishment of those who reject so great a salvation, and the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Therefore, the Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error (2 Ti. 3:16; Ma. 5:18).

 

We Believe:

That through the saved person one may have occasion to grow in knowledge of His position and power, one is as soon as they are saved absolutely complete in Christ and is in no way required by God to seek a second blessing or second work of grace (Eph. 2:8; Ro. 10:9-10; 8; 1:7; He. 11:6).

 

We Believe:

That the saved person retains his sin nature which is not removed in this life, but that his provision is made by the Spirit for daily victory over sin and may be appropriate and is effective to those who do so. Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence (Jo. 10:28-29; Ro. 6:23; 1 Co. 15:31; 2 Co. 5:2).

 

We Believe:

Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have been accepted by Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ (Jo. 1:29-34; Lu. 23:42-43).

 

We believe:

Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ to remember His sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread and wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation but is symbolic. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross (1 Co. 11:23-34; Ma. 14:12-26).

 

We Believe:

That some gifts of the Holy Spirit such as speaking in tongues and miraculous healing have its purpose of being mentioned in scripture, but all gifts are a sovereign decision by God (Ro. 12:6-9; 1 Co. 12:1-31).

 

We Believe:

That speaking in tongues never was the necessary sign of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and that all healing is of God. Every Believer has at least one gift and these gifts are operating within the church (Ga. 5:22; Ro. 12:6-9; 1 Co. 12: 1-31).
