WHAT WE BELIEVE
We Believe the bible is the inspired Word of God given to men by inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
(2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)
We Believe our God is One, but manifested in three co-equal persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
(John 14:26, Luke 3:22, John 17:21)
We Believe man is created in the image and likeness of God and God gave man dominion and authority over the earth.
We Believe through Adam’s transgression sin came into the world and through this satan became the god of this world.
(Genesis 3, Luke 4:5-6, 2 Corinthians 4:4)
We Believe Jesus was the Word of God manifested in the flesh, born of a virgin, in order to restore man back to a right relationship with God. (John 1:14, Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1: 26-38, 1 John 3:8, Romans 5:17-19)
We Believe Jesus came to fulfill the law and therefore we are no longer under the law, but under the dispensation of grace. (Matthew 5:17, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 1:17)
We Believe in order to have eternal life, every person must believe and confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, died on the cross, and rose from the dead. Those who die and have rejected Christ as Savior will spend eternity in hell (separated from god). (Romans 10-9-10, John 3:3-5, 1 John 5:12, John 3:16-17, Mark 16:16, Hebrews 9:27, Matthew 25:31-46)
We Believe in baptism by emersion in water. Emersion is much more than just a symbol of our identifying with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. This is, by faith, the putting on of Christ and allowing Him to live in us and through us.
(Matthew 28:19, Galatians 3:24-29, Romans 6:1-18)
We Believe baptism with the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God, available to all believers, as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ and is received subsequent to the new birth. This baptism is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit himself gives utterance. (Acts 2:1-4, Luke 3:16, Acts 2:38-39, Mark 16:17)
We Believe the provision of healing in the human body is provided in the atonement of Christ.
(Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17, Mark 16:18, James 5:13-16, 1 Peter 2:24)
We Believe in Christ's return to take away (rapture) those who have accepted Jesus as their Savior. This will make way for the antichrist to rise to power and begin the seven year tribulation period on the earth.
(1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, 1 Corinthians 15:51-58, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-7)
We Believe the second coming of Christ will be at the end of the seven year tribulation.
(Matthew 24:14-51, Daniel chapters 9, 10, 12)
