What We Believe

We find these things to be true.......

  • The Bible is the written, infallible
  • authoritative and inspired Word of God.
  • There is one true God ....who revealed Himself as Father in Creation, through His Son in redemption, and as Holy Spirit through empowerment.
  • Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and the shed blood on the cross of Calvary.
  • Pardon and forgiveness of sins are obtained by genuine repentance - a confession and forsaking of sins.
  • That all of God's people are to be buried with Christ in the waters of baptism, subsequent to conversion. While we freely embrace those of contrary opinion, we feel that this rite is scripturally administered "in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ."
  • The Holy Spirit, which is available to the believer today, is a gift of God to empower us to be a witness and to live an overcoming life.
  • The gifts of the Spirit are in operation in the lives of His followers and in Church today.
  • Jesus Christ is preparing a church as a bride adorned for her husband and is coming back for His bride, to reign eternally with Him.
