Statement of Faith
We believe in one Lord, one faith, and one baptism. (Ephesians 4:5)
We believe that the Holy Bible is the word of God; That it is true; that is contains the keys toward inheriting true salvation and eternal life; and that it reveals the mystery of our faith. (Deuteronomy 29:29, John 5:39)
We believe in the oneness of God, who was the Father in Creation, the son in redemption, and is the Holy Ghost in regeneration. He operates in the form of the Holy Spirit in (the church) (which is his mystical) body. (Timothy 3:16)
We believe that Jesus Christ is God, for in him dwells all the fullness of the God head bodily. We proclaim LORD JESUS CHRIST is the name of God that was given to this generation as the only name whereby we (in this dispensation of GRACE) must be saved. (Colossians 2:9, Act 4:12)
We accept God's plan of salvation of baptism by water and spirit. Jesus Christ who was our perfect example, though sinless, was baptized to fulfill all righteousness. (Mathew 3:15, John 3:3)
We believe that water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ is essential for forgiveness of sins and confirms our belief that Jesus Christ is the son of God. (Acts 2:38, Acts 8:37)
We believe that rebirth by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential today as it was in the days of the Apostles. (Acts 2,4)
We believe that the word of God must be proclaimed throughout all the world according to God's commandment. (Mathew 28:19, Mark 16:15, Romans 10:18)
Our blessed hope lies in Christ Jesus, our LORD, who has given us the victory over death and hell. Therefore standing firm on his promises, we anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ and that great day of resurrection which shall surely come.
On that day, the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we, which are alive and remain, will be changed and caught up together with them in the air and so shall we forever be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (John 14:3, First Corinthians 15:51-58, First Thessalonians 4:15-17)
