What We Believe In
THE BIBLE as the inspired Word of God (II Timothy 3:16)
ONE GOD, eternally existent in 3 persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit (II Corinthians 13:14)
THE DEITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death on a cross that paid the price for the sins of the world, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His second coming to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years. (Matthew 16:16, I Corinthians 15:3,4 )
THE BLESSED HOPE which is the rapture of the church at Christ's coming; our place in heaven (Titus 2:1)
PERSONAL SALVATION is by God's Grace through Faith; by the cleansing of sin through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus and the regeneration of the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 2:8, I Peter 1:18,19, John 3:3-5)
WATER BAPTISM by immersion (Matthew 28:19)
BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT is given to believers who desires it and other spiritual gifts as well (Acts 2:4)
SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES still happen today and gifts of the Holy Spirit and as God wills it (Hebrew 2:3-4, Hebrews 13:8)
EVERY CHRISTIAN IS CALLED TO HOLINESS by the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling, we are enabled and empowered to live a holy, victorious life in Christ (Ephesians 1:3-4)
UNITY IN THE BODY inspite of doctrinal or methodological differences we can co-exist with other Christian churches that acknowledge Christ as Lord (I Corinthians 12)
THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE AND HARMONY IN THE FAMILY we believe, this is the key to revival in America (I Corinthians 7, Ephesians 5 & 6)
