We believe the Bible is the infallible and authoritative Word of God (II Timothy 3:16; Ephesians 3:5; II Peter 3:2).
God is One
We believe that there is only one God, who was “manifest (revealed) in the flesh” in the person of Jesus Christ. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Timothy 3:16; John 14:9)
We believe that salvation is only found in Jesus Christ and is appropriated to humanity by God’s grace through the New Testament new-birth experience. (Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8; John 3:3-7)
Being Born Again
We believe that the new-birth experience is comprised of repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. This is the New Testament pattern for all believers to follow as a result of their faith in Christ. (Acts 2:38; Luke 13:1-5; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 19:5-6)
The Holy Spirit
We believe that when a person receives the baptism of the Holy Spirit, that person will speak with other tongues under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:4; Acts 19:6; Isaiah 28:11)
We believe that God’s people are called to live a holy, pure life before God and all humanity. (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Hebrews 12:14)
The Name of Jesus
We believe that the authority of God is vested in the Name of Jesus (Philippians 2:9-10; Matthew 7:22; Mark 16:7; John 14:14; Acts 4:12). All the believer does “in word or deed” is to be done in Jesus’ Name (Colossians 3:17). The Name of Jesus becomes our new “family name” (I Corinthians 1:12-15; Romans 6:4: II Corinthians 5:17.
The Second Coming
We believe that the church will be raptured by Christ and will be with Him forever in eternity. (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18; 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52; 1 Thessalonians 1:10)
We believe that God’s power is still active in the church and that healings, signs, and miracles are available to God’s people through faith in Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 13:8; 1 Corinthians 2:4; 1 Peter 2:24)
