Statement of Faith

We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, realizing that the original autograph copies were inspired by God, containing no textual fault.
2 Timothy 3:16

We believe that the Scriptures are the verbally inspired Word of God, and are the final source in all matters relating to faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21

We believe that the one true God is revealed through the Scriptures as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God has manifested Himself to mankind in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 John 1:1-3; John 15:26; Matthew 28:19

We believe that man was created good and in the image of God but through voluntary transgression is lost and spiritually dead.
Genesis 1:27; 2:16-17; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22; Romans 3:9-10

We believe that redemption may be obtained only through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. There is nothing a sinner can do to save himself--except repent and call on the name of Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3:10-24; 6:23

We believe that honest repentance and faith toward Christ Jesus will produce a sanctified vessel and separation from the world of sin.
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8; 5:23

We believe in water baptism by immersion as commanded in the Scriptures for all who repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Matthew 23:19; Acts 2:38; 10:48; Rom. 6:4

We believe in the “Baptism with the Holy Spirit” as a definite experience available to all believers, evidenced by power, joy, and the ability to speak in other tongues.
Matthew 3:11; Mark 1:8; Acts 2:4; 11:16

We believe in miracles, prophetic utterances, and supernatural gifts given by the Holy Spirit to the church today.
1 Corinthians 12:7-11

We believe in the foundational ministries of the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for the church today.
Ephesians 4:7-15

We believe in New Testament order and organization for the local church, and in the authority of indigenous church government.
Titus 1:59; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; Acts 6:17

We believe in the literal bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth again. He will return from heaven in great glory and power, climaxing this age with judgment on the ungodly and the resurrection and translation of the righteous.
Matthew 16:27; 24:30; Acts 3:20; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; 2:8; Jude 14-15; Revelation 1:7
