Our Beliefs:

We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired word of God. The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are “verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct” (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thess. 2:13; II Peter 1:21)


We believe in the one true God. The one God has revealed Himself as the eternally, self-existent “I Am,” the Creator of heaven and earth, and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Deut. 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22)


The fall of man. Man was created good and upright; for God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God (Gen. 1:26-27; Gen. 2:17; Gen. 3:6; Romans 5:12-19).


Baptism in water by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4).


Holy Communion, the Lord’s Supper, consisting of (the bread of) His broken body, (fruit of the vine) His blood. Taken in remembrance and memorial of Jesus’ suffering and death (l Cor. 11:26) by this we are also, expressing our sharing, of the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (II Peter 2:4).


The Church is the body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:22; Hebrews 12:23).


Cheerful giving of tithes and offerings to where you receive the meat of the word of GOD, not GOD-Robbers.


The Deity of The Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35) His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; I Peter 2:22) His miracles (Acts 22:22; Acts 10:39). His substitutionary work on the cross (I Cor. 15:3; II Cor. 5:21). His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; I Cor. 15:4)His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9,11; Acts 2:33; Phil. 2:9-11; Heb. 1:3)


The salvation of man. Man’s only hope of redemption is through the Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.


(II Peter 2:4; John 7:39; Acts 19:2) evidence of the Baptism of Holy Ghost witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance (Acts 2:4).


Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God (Romans 12:1,-2; 1 Thess. 5:23; Hebrews 13:12), “a life of Holiness without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).


Ordinances & doctrines of the Scriptures are only to be followed, not man-made doctrines or ordinances.
