What We Believe

 

Declaration of Faith:

 

We believe that there is but one God represented in three beings:

God the Father

Christ the Son

And the Holy Ghost or Spirit of God

Genesis1:26    Mark 1:9-11

 

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and it alone given for our direction and teaching.

2Timothy 3:16-17       2Peter 1:20-21 

 

We believe that Christ the Son of God came to us thru virgin birth, lived a sinless life as an example before us, died on the cross, and rose on the third day, and today is seated at the right hand of God as our intercessor.

John 1:1-3, 14       Luke 11:35      Romans 3:24-25    Eph. 1:17   Heb. 9:24   Rom. 8:34

 

We believe the risen Christ purchased our salvation thru and by his shed blood. And that in accepting him as our personal savior confessing our sins and asking his forgiveness of them, then reconciliation is extended to us by the grace of God thru faith.

John 3:3, 3:16        1John 1:9

 

We believe in water Water Baptism by immersion as an outward testimony to the world

of salvation.

Math. 28:19          Acts 8:35-38

 

We believe in divine healing by the laying on of hands, anointing with oil and prayer.

Mark 16:17-20       Acts 5:16           James 5:14-15

 

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the operation of the gifts of the Spirit.

Acts 1:8, 2:4, 38-39         10:45-46

 

We believe there is a heaven for those who as Christ said in Mathew 24:13 but he that shall endure to the end the same shall be saved.    And a hell prepared for those who do not accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior.

  

We believe in living a sanctified life growing and maturing in Christ as we draw closer

to him, studying his word and with an active prayer life as we learn the will of God

in our lives.

John 17:15-17    Eph. 5:25-27     1 Thes. 4:3-4

 

We believe in the five fold ministry of the church as set forth by Paul in the active

body of Christ.

Eph. 4:11-14

 

We believe in supporting the ministry thru tithes and offerings to finance the church of God, and the spreading of the Gospel.

Mal. 3:10,        Acts 4:34-37,   1 Cor. 16:2,     2 Cor. 9:6-7,    Mark 16:15      Luke 24:47
