About the Bible:
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. The Holy Spirit inspired the writers of the Old and New Testaments pointing to Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
We believe that there is One God, eternally revealed to the world in the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. By Him were all things created. We believe that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem all of mankind. Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life on this earth, performed many undeniable miracles, was crucified for our sins, buried and raised from the dead for our justification. By the name of Jesus Christ, and His name only, can mankind be saved. Jesus Christ sits at the right hand of the Father and will return personally in power and glory to receive his Church unto Himself.
We believe that mankind is sinful by nature and will perish without the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as revealed in His Gospel. We believe that God wishes that no one should perish, but that all would come to this saving knowledge through the preaching of the Gospel to a lost and hopeless world.
About the Work of The Holy Spirit:
We believe in the multi-faceted work of the Holy Spirit to bring conviction of sin, revelation of the truth of the Gospel of Christ, drawing of the sinner to God, adoption of mankind into the Body of Christ through regeneration, and the distribution and administration of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s life. Jesus Christ is the “baptizer with the Holy Spirit” for the empowerment of the Church through the Baptism with the Holy Spirit.
About Water Baptism:
Water Baptism: Dead to Sin, Alive to God
For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead. - Colossians 2:12
Baptism is a powerful symbolic act of repentance from sin and new life in Jesus. It involves submersion in water, representing a water grave whereby a person joins Christ in his death and resurrection. The person who is baptized recognizes that by faith in Christ Jesus they have “died” to the power of sin and their old way of life. Because they have been raised with Jesus, a new life has begun.
About The Church:
We believe in the local church as a place where believers gather together for edification, teaching from the Word of God, and ministry to and through each other according to their spiritual gift. The local church provides identity to its members as well as encouragement, interdependence, fellowship, correction and discipline.
