believe in, and live by,
God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ,
His Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost
through the Word of God and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified dead and buried.
He descended into Hell and He stripped Satan of his power.
Upon the third day he rose again and
ascended into Heaven
where He is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
We believe in the Holy Ghost,
the worldwide body of Christ (His Church),
the forgiveness of all sins,
the resurrection of the dead, the communion
of the saints, and life everlasting. We believe that through a profession
faith (trust) in the shed blood of Jesus Christ,
His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension;
one may become a partaker of
their inheritance in Him.
1. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God
written by holy men
as they were instructed by God. It is the inherent Word of God (11 Tim
2.. We believe that Man was created good and upright, for
God said, “Let us
make man in Our own image, after Our likeness.” But man, voluntarily
transgressed against God, and God has provided man with his only hope
salvation and redemption which is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God
1:26-31, 3:17, Rom. 5:12-21).
3. We believe that Jesus came as a man, was born of a
virgin, and His father
is God. We believe that Jesus was born without the inherited sin of
during his entire life, committed no sin. Jesus was the eternal Father
visible, apart from whom there is no God (I Tim. 3:16, John 10:30, Is.
Luke 2:11, Rev. 1:8).
4. We believe in the personal salvation of believers
through the confession
of sins, recognizing that Jesus Christ is the substitute for our sins,
through His shed blood. It is by the grace of God, through faith in
and His shed blood, that we become an heir of God (Rom. 10:9,10, 1
John 1:9, Eph. 2:8,9).
5. We believe that the New Birth is a direct witness of
the Spirit and is an
inward confession of Jesus Christ (Rom 8:16). We believe that
salvation through Jesus Christ you should be baptized...as commanded
Lord Jesus. This was the last command He left His apostles.
therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them, in the name of the
and the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” (Matt. 28:19) Mark 16:16 reads,
that believeth, and is baptized, shall be saved...”
6. We believe in divine healing through faith and that
healing is a benefit
of the atonement.
7. We believe in the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit and
that these gifts are
given throughout the Body of Christ and are in operation today (I Cor.
8. We believe in the imminent return, second coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ
for His Church (His bride).
9. We believe that there is a heaven and a hell. Heaven
is a place of
eternal rest for the righteous (those who have accepted Jesus Christ
atonement for their sins) and hell is a place of eternal damnation for
unrighteous (those who do not accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and
(Matt. 28:19, Mark 16:16).
10. We believe in the millennial reign of Jesus – the
revelation of the Lord
Jesus Christ from heaven, and the millennial reign of Christ and His
followers on earth (11 Thes. 1:7, Rom. 11:26,27, Rev. 20:1-7).
11. We believe in the Great Commission – to minister
God’s saving grace and to reach out to the poor and lost in spirit
(Mark 16:15). And foremost, to
honor and obey God’s command, “take the gospel into all the
