Statement of Faith

1.We believe in one God, revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
2.We believe in the absolute inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, given by the Holy Spirit without error, as He moved upon holy men of old. Furthermore, we believe that the church has no authority to establish doctrine or practice contrary to these same Scriptures.
3.We believe that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of creation. He is, prior to salvation because of the fall, spiritually depraved and alienated from his Creator.
4.We believe that justification is by grace through faith in our Lord’s sacrifice on Calvary and that no one is justified by simply keeping the law.
5.We believe in water baptism, following conversion as commanded by Christ as a symbolic sign that the people of God are buried and resurrected with Christ.
6.We believe in the priesthood of the believer, that all people committed to Christ have direct access in prayer to God.
7.We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power subsequent to conversion, given by God to anoint the believer for sanctification and evangelism. It is our understanding that the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are active within the body until the coming of the Lord. Furthermore, we believe that the development of these gifts ought to be encouraged under the guidance of local church authorities.
8.We believe that divine healing and divine health are provided to every believer through the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9.We believe that the callings of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher are functional within the Body of Christ until the Lord’s return. Furthermore, these ministries are gifts to the Church for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of ministry, that the body of Christ be edified.
10.We believe in the literal second coming of our Lord, the literal rule of Christ upon the earth, the resurrection of the regenerated to eternal life and the unregenerate to eternal damnation, and the ultimate victory of the eternal kingdom of God.
