We desire, as zealous followers of our Lord Jesus Christ, to possess His love and to have a deep, rich fellowship with God, as well as with our brothers and sisters in Christ. To those who stand outside our fellowship, or are not yet in the mighty Kingdom of Christ, we pledge to you our love and our lives, as well. For if we as His Church cannot do this, then we have no right or privilege to call ourselves Christians.
We believe the Bible to be the Word of God, holy and inspired—without error (inerrant) and the sole authority of what is ultimately true, beautiful, and wonderful. -II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21
We believe there is one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
-Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 1:1, 10:30
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; in His Virgin Birth; in His miraculous life; in His miracle working power; in His vicarious atoning death through the shedding of His blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal return in power and glory.
- John 10:33, Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35, Hebrews 4:15, 7:26, John 2:11, I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9, John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4, Mark 16:19, Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11-13, 14-16
We believe in the necessity of being saved by the Holy Spirit because sin has made our human nature utterly sinful. Repentance from sin and application of the finished work of Jesus Christ is the only permissible way to enter into a relationship with God. This is because Jesus paid the penalty of our sin by willing shedding His blood on the cross. Our salvation is through faith in Him, and by His grace alone.
-John 3:16-19, 5:24, Romans 3:23, 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling and filling the Christian is enabled to live a godly and pure life. We further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today. -Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:6, 19-20, Ephesians 4:30, 5:18
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. -John 3:28-29
We believe that Christ has set our hearts free to worship God, experience His pleasure, and to live in wonderful unity with fellow servants of God. -Galatians 5:1, Philippians 1:8-10, 21, John 17
