What We Believe
We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as Father, through His Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit dwelling within us.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with accompanying spiritual gifts, is the privilege of all New Testament believers.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God robed in flesh, born of a virgin; that He lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the grave on the third day; and that He has been exalted to the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that through His death and life we have personal salvation, power for victorious living over sin and failure, and equipping to evangelize our world.
We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through the new birth and by faith in the atoning blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again of water and the Spirit become children of God by adoption and heirs with Christ.
The Second Coming
We believe in the approaching return of Jesus Christ to receive his bride, the church, unto Himself. At His coming, we believe the dead in Christ will be resurrected from the grave, followed by those who have been born again, active in their faith, and looking with anticipation to His return. We believe in Christ's millennial (1000-year) reign upon the earth.
We believe the Church has been "called out" of the world to be a habitation of God through His Spirit. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to mankind. The church is one body made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit.
