Our Beliefs

Our view of God, Jesus, the Bible, and you

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

God

God's Word

We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who is revealed in three Persons:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; John 15:26)

Jesus Christ

We acknowledge Jesus Christ as true God and true man — conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, crucified, and resurrected — our High Priest and Advocate now seated at the right hand of God the Father.
(Matthew 1:18; Hebrews 12:2)

Salvation

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.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; John 15:26)

Water Baptism

We baptize in water all those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ and who desire to publicly identify with Him, in accordance with the Bible’s command.
(Matthew 28:19; Acts 8:36-39; Romans 6:4)

Communion

We believe in personal salvation and forgiveness of sins through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, acknowledging every person’s need for the grace and mercy of God.
(Romans 3:23-24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3; 1 John 1:9)

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the present supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose purpose is to glorify Jesus Christ and instruct and empower every believer for Godly living and service.
(John 16:13-14; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11)

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a promise from the Father for every believer and is distinct and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. Speaking in tongues, as the Holy Spirit gives utterance, is a physical indication of the baptism with the Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4, 38-39, 19:4-6)

The Initial Physical Evidence

The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance.
(Acts 2:4; Acts 19:4-6)

Prayer

We believe in the power and effectiveness of prayer.
(Philippians 4:6-7; James 5:15-16)

We serve the Lord’s Supper and, according to Scripture, remember Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross and celebrate His resurrection power.
(Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

Healing

Healing is a key part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers. Jesus is the Healer.
(Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16)

Second Coming

We believe in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that His appearance will be accompanied by a bodily resurrection of those who have died in Christ.
(Matthew 24:29-31; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

The Blessed Hope

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13)
