Our Church Beliefs
We believe in one God - Father, Son and Holy
Spirit, Creator of all things and the Bible
in its entirety as infallible and to be the
inspired Word of God.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the
first-begotten Son of God, was conceived of
the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was
crucified, died and was buried, was resurrected,
ascended into heaven, and is now seated at
the right hand of God interceding for us.
We believe in the rapture, that the dead in
Christ shall rise first and those who are alive
shall be caught up to meet Jesus in the air;
the eternal happiness of the saved, and the
eternal punishment of the lost.
We believe in personal salvation of believers
through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and
that salvation is by grace through faith, by
believing with the heart and confessing with
the mouth the Lord Jesus, all shall be saved.
We believe in sanctification through the Word
of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe
in personal holiness, purity of heart.
We believe in divine healing, through faith
in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that healing
is included in the Redemption and that by His
stripes we are healed.
We believe in water baptism, in the Baptism
of the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New
Birth, in speaking with tongues as the Spirit
of God gives utterance, in the gifts of the
Spirit, and the evidence of the fruit of the
Spirit. We believe that all of these are available
to us now.
We believe in receiving tithes and offerings
in the local church and giving alms to the
poor and caring for the needy, sick, homeless
and the otherwise unfortunate.

accuracy and simplicity resulting in genuine

trained, mature, stable, immovable, steady

the bride of Christ and are ever-ready and
conscious of the hope of the return of Jesus
Christ, but live militantly occupying till
