What We Believe
We believe in ONE GOD, and that He only is God; invisible, infinite in wisdom, goodness, mercy, love, grace, and power. He is the maker of Heaven and He is triune, being revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. (John 17:3; Matt. 19:26; 1 John 5:7)
We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the second person in the Godhead, co-equal and coexistent, with the Father, and the Holy Ghost. We further believe in the fullness of time. He was manifested in the flesh, incarnated by the power of the Holy Ghost in the womb of the Virgin Mary. (Matt. 1:18, 1 John 1:3,7, Luke 1:34-35)
We believe in The Holy Spirit, the third Person in the triune Godhead; and that He is ever present and active in the Church of Christ (John 14:16); convicting (John 16:8) and regenerating those who believe in Jesus Christ; dwelling in, sanctifying, teaching, and comforting believers (John 14:16,17; 17:17) and guiding them into all truth as it is in Christ Jesus (John 16:13), (John 14:26), and empowering them to witness (Acts 1:8).
We believe that The Holy Bible is composed of sixty-six books, known as the Old and New Testaments, and that said books contain the eternal inerrant word of God. (Isaiah 40:8; 43:13; Psalm 80:36-37; Matthew 24:35; John 1:1-4). We believe that the Bible was written by holy men as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (2 Samuel 23:1,2; 2 Peter 1: 19-21; 2 Timothy 3:16) and that it contains all necessary truth pertaining to salvation and to Christianity living (II Peter 1:3).
We believe that the Atonement made by Jesus Christ through the shedding of His blood for the remission of sins is for the whole human race and that whosoever repents and believes in the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe that Baptism is commanded by our Lord as an ordinance in the church; and that it belongs to the believer in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We further believe that the Bible’s way of administering it is by immersion in the name of the Father and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost. (Matt 28:19-20)
We believe that every true believer is heir to the Holy Ghost. (Galatians 4:6,7) We believe that He is the gift of God in Christ Jesus to the children of God, sanctifying, quickening, guiding into all truth, and giving the power to obey and witness God's work. We believe that the receiving of the Holy Spirit is an integral part of the conversion. (Acts 5:32) We believe that the gift of the Holy Spirit is the ratification of man's acceptance of God and the earnestness or guarantee of Man's eternal inheritance in Christ. (II Corinthians 1:22)
