We Believe

The Bible the Old and New Testaments are the inspired and authoritative Word of God. In the Bible, we find the revelation of God’s will for the salvation of humanity and the divine, final authority for Christian life.

The Trinity is one God, the Creator of all things who has made Himself known in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ was the incarnation of God in the world. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as a sacrifice for the sins of all men.

The Holy Spirit is the present and supernatural ministry to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. During this age, He dwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the Believer for Godly living and service. Every Believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit as the initial physical evidence and with the character of the Spirit as the ongoing life evidence.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ in which Jesus Christ body rose from the dead, ascended to Heaven, and now is at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.

Regeneration by the Holy Spirit in which man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost. Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and Spiritual life be obtained. The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for justification and salvation.

Water Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. However, they are not regarded as means of salvation.

Prayer and Application of the Word of God in which every born again , Spirit-filled Believer should maintain a consistent personal devotional life by praying with understanding, praying with the Spirit, and participating in daily study and application of the Word of God. This is evident by holiness of lifestyle, Godliness of character, and a love of the brethren.

The Church is composed of those who are born again. Through this new birth, we are untied together in the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church. Every local church under Christ has the right to decide and govern its own affairs.

The Second Coming of Jesus Christ our Lord has a vital bearing on the personal life, stewardship and service of the Believer.

There will be a Bodily Resurrection of the Dead , of the non-believer to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment, and of the Believer to everlasting joy with the Lord.

Your Most Important Decision

Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? No decision you could make is more important or wonderful. When you decide to follow Jesus, you not only have an assured home in Heaven, but you receive a brand new life and a vibrant purpose for living. Of course, you may be wondering what all that actually means. Here are some things you should know.

Grace: Heaven Is A Free Gift

“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). We can’t earn our way to Heaven, and none of us deserve to go. It is a gift.

Man: We Are All Sinners

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Every person who has ever lived has missed God’s standard of perfection.

God: He Loves Us

“God is love ” (1 John 4:8). While God loves us and doesn’t want to punish us, we should also know that, as a just God, He must punish sin. “The soul who sins shall die” (Ezekiel 18:4).


“Baptism” or “baptize” means to dip, immerse, or plunge something into something, usually water. The descriptions we have in the New Testament are clear that people went down into the water to be immersed (Matthew 3:6; John 3:23; Acts 8:38). Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist (Matthew 3:13; Mark 1:9; Luke 3:23). Although He was sinless, Jesus demonstrated to us that baptism is an outward expression of Spiritual change that takes place when a person receives the free gift of salvation.

The Bible teaches us that we don’t get baptized to get saved; instead, we are baptized because of our relationship with Jesus Christ who died so we can have eternal life. Therefore, it is very important that baptism occur after a person has made a conscious decision to repent of their sins and profess their faith in Jesus Christ.
