statement of faith

we believe
in the Holy Scriptures of the Old & New Testaments as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; constituting the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct
one God
We believe there is but one true and living God, who is everlasting, infinite in power, wisdom and goodness; that He is the Creator of all things, visible and invisible, and Preserver of all things. In the unity of this Godhead, there are three persons of one individual essence, who are co-equal, co-existent and co-eternal; eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
our Lord Jesus Christ
God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His substitutionary sacrifice, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His work as mediator, and His Personal return in power and glory
the Salvation
of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Ghost; Man is a free moral agent and can at any time after the new birth experience, turn away from God and die in a state of sin, with the consequences of hell to look to
the Holy Ghost
The Holy Ghost is a Divine Person, the Comforter sent by the Lord Jesus Christ to indwell, to guide and to teach the believer, and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; by whose indwelling, the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire, is a gift from God, as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation of time, and is received subsequent to the new birth.  The Baptism of the Holy Ghost is accompanied by speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance as the initial physical sign and evidence
the Unity 
of the true Church, built upon the Foundation of Jesus Christ, is the Body of Christ; Christ being the Head. Its earthly constituents are all true believers, born again of the Spirit, and of the Word, who are living an overcoming Christian life.  The Church, through its members, are delegated the various gifts and offices of the Holy Ghost which are necessary for the successful evangelization of the world, and the perfecting of the Body of Christ 
the Resurrection & Rapture
The Bible promises, “This same Jesus…shall so come in like manner”. His coming is imminent; when He comes, “The dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air”; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, will experience the endless existence of joy and ecstasy in the presence of God; The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire, and therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the gospel or for repentance.
