What We Believe

God
There is one God, eternally existing in three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Col 2:9, Matthew 28:19, John 1)

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. (John 1:1-14)

The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment by indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8, Acts 1:5, Ephesians 4:30)
The initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues’, as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles. (Acts 2:1-4)

Salvation
Salvation is the gift of God brought to man by only grace and received by faith and confession in the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is only available because the blood of Jesus was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. (Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16-17, Romans 10:9-10)

The Crucifixion and Resurrection and Ascension
Jesus Christ attained our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative and a substitutionary sacrifice. Our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. Jesus ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry as Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate. (Matt 27:31, 2 Cor 5:21, Mark 16:16, Acts 1:9)

The Scriptures
The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments is the inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, and God-breathed. (2 Timothy 3:16)

Catching Away of the Saints
The Lord himself will descend from heaven, crack the sky, call forth those dead in Christ, and transform those who are alive and take us to a city called heaven. (1Thess 4:16-17)

Water Baptism
Water baptism is a public sign of our identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:38, Romans 6:3, Gal 3:27)

Manifestations or Gifts of the Holy Spirit
The manifestations/gifts of the Spirit are still present and in operation in the church until the return of Christ. (1 Cor 12:1-11)
