We believe in one God, revealed as Father, son and Holy Spirit.(Duet.6:4; II Cor. 13:14; John 1:1).
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten of the Father, and is truly God and truly man. He was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world, was resurrected bodily for our justification, and now reigns in Glory until all things be put under his feet. (I Tim. 3:16)
We believe in the absolute inspiration of the Holy Scriptures in their original autographs, 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, which were subsequently accepted as Canon by the early Christian Church.
We believe that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of creation. He is now by reason of the "fall" spiritually alienated from his Creator. Apart from God, he has no ability to attain this high calling. (Psalm 8; Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe that justification is by grace through faith in our Lord's sacrifice on Calvary.
We believe that all people are to repent and be buried with our Lord Jesus Christ in the waters of baptism. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:28; Romans 6:4; II Peter 3:9).
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power 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 of Christ 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 authority. (Acts 8:14-17; Acts 19:1-2; I Cor. 12:4-7).
We believe that those who are called by the name of Christ should depart from iniquity, understanding that salvation from the penalty of sin only begins the process of redemption. We acknowledge that one work of the Holy Spirit is to create in us the character of Christ. (II Tim. 2:19).
