Our Beliefs


Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the just for the unjust, as a substitution sacrifice and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of he Majesty on High as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace. John 1:1,14

THE holy spirit

The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, and empower the believer and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. Acts 5:1-14, John 16: 7-8. 

The bible

The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and the only rule of Christian faith and practice. 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21

Man's problem is sin

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God; he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The prospect of the impenitent and unbelieving person is existence forever in conscious torment, and that of the believer in Christ is to have everlasting joy and bliss. Genesis 1:27, Romans 5:12 

Jesus is the only way

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men, and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become the children of God. John 1:29, 1 Timothy 2:4-5 

Jesus changes us

It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion. Acts 1:8, Romans 12: 1-2, 1 Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23

god still heals today

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age. James 5:13-16

the church

The Church consists of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God edification through the Word of God, prayer fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper. Acts 2:42

in the resurrection, heaven and hell

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment. 1 Corinthians 15:12-24, Revelation 20:11-15

jesus is coming soon

The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible and premillennial. This is the believer's blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service. 1 Thessalonians 4: 15-18


"By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples." John 15:8

team ministry

"Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business." Acts 6:3
