WE BELIEVE

  • In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (1 John 5:7).

  • That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the intercessor (Luke 1:35, Isaiah 53:1-12, Acts 13:26-30).

  • That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins (Romans 3:23-26).

  • That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:13-14, 1 John 1:7).

  • That sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 1:30).

  • In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked (John 3:5, Psalm 1:4-5, Revelation 21:6-8).

  • In the verbal inspiration of the Bible (John 1:1, 14-15, 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

  • In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost (John 3:5-7, Romans 6:3-6).

  • The baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart (Acts 2:38).

  • In speaking with tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism in the Holy Ghost (Matthew 3:11, Acts 2:4).

  • In the nine gifts and the nine fruits of the Spirit as taught in the New Testament, healing is provided for all through the sufferings of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:7-11, Galatians 5:22-25).

  • In the pre-millennial, second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years (1 Corinthians 15:51-52, Revelation 19:11-16).
