Organizational Statement of Faith


1. We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative written Word of God. 2. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miraculous ministry, His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodyily resurrection, in His Ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal return to earth, at which time he will judge the living and the dead. 4. We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ, and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation. 5. We believe in the ordinances of the church: Holy Communion and Water Baptism by immersion. 6. We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it. 7. We believe the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides divine healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer. 8. We believe in the sactifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life. 9. We believe in the Blessed Hope, the imminent return of Jesus Christ followed by his reign on the earth for 1,000 years. 10. We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and other to everlasting damnation.
