What We Believe

We Believe...



DIVINE HEALING

Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith and by laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ and is the privilege of every member of the Church today. (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matt. 8:17;Mark 16:18; James 5:14-25; 1 Peter 2:24)



We Believe ...



RESSURECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD

The angels said to Jesus disciples, this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into the heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. His coming is imminent. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven

with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord (1 Thess. 4:16-17) We shall be the priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousands years. (Revelation 20:6)



We Believe...



HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION

The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire and, therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The Lake of Fire is literal. The terms eternal; and everlasting, used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the Lake of Fire carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of saints in the presence of God. (Heb. 9:27; Rev. 19:20)



We Believe ...



COMMUNION

Communion is a very important ordinance of the church. We are instructed by the Word of God to receive communion after a careful examination of yourself. Both the bread and the cup are symbolic. The cup represents the blood of Jesus shed for the remission of our sins and the bread of which we partake represents the broken body of our Lord.(Matt. 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-25, 1 Cor. 11:23-34, 2 Cor. 13:5a)



We Believe ...



RAPTURE

Although the word rapture is not found in scripture, its

meaning is. The rapture is something every believer should look forward to. It is the catching away of the saints to meet the Lord in the air. (1Thess. 4:15-18; 1 Cor.15:51-54)



We Believe ...



THE SCRIPTURES

The Bible is the inspired Word of God the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, is accepted as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine.(2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)



We Believe...



THE GODHEAD

Our God is one but manifested in three persons the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit being co-equal. (Matt. 3:16-17,Phil. 2:6) God the Father is greater than all; the sender of Word (Logos) and the Begetter. ( John 14:28; 16:28; 1:14) The Son is the Word made flesh, the one Begotten, and has existed with the Father since the beginning.( John 1:1; 14 & 18) The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal.( John 15:26)



We Believe...



MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION

Man is a created being in the likeness and image of God, but through Adams transgression and fall sin came into the world. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.(Romans 3:23) As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one. (Romans 3:10) Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the works of the devil. He gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God. (Romans 5:15; 1 John 3:8) Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from the works and the laws, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God.(Ephesians 2:8)



We Believe...



ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH

Mans first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men and when experienced produces eternal life. ( John 3:3-5; 2 Cor 7:10; 1 John 5:12)



We Believe...



WATER BAPTISM

Baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christians identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.(Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36-39)



We Believe...



BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST

The Baptism in the Holy Ghost is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance. His purpose is to teach and guide believers into all truth. (John 16:13; Matt. 3:11; John 14, 16, 17; Acts 1:8,2:4, 2:38, 39)



We Believe...



SANCTIFICATION

The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite yet progressive work of grace commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christs return.(Hebrews 12:14; 1Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 1 Cor. 1:30; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12-14)
