We believe the Bible to be given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, infallible, and God’s revealed word to man.

We believe that Scripture teaches that there is only one true and living God who has chosen to reveal Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10 and11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22.)

We believe that man is a sinful being in need of redemption (Genesis1: 26-31, 3:1-7; Psalm 51:5; Ecclesiastes 7:29; John 6:44; Romans 5;12 thru 21; 1 Corinthians

We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God and the son of man, that He came to save man from condemnation of sin by offering His blood as an atonement and making it available to all who exercise faith in Him (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35; John 3:16; 
1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21.)

We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (Luke 7:50, 24:47; Romans 10:13-15; 
1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 2:15; Ephesians 2:8, 9;
2 Timothy 1:9, Titus 2:11, 3:5-7.)

We believe the Scriptures ascribe to the Holy Spirit the acts and attributes of an intelligent being, and that the works of God such as creation, inspiration, giving of life, and sanctification are also ascribed to the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:2; Job 33:4; Mark 3:29; John 16:8, 13; 
Acts 7:51, 10:19, 13:2, 13:4, 16:6; 1 Corinthians 2:22, 6:11, 12; Ephesians 4:30; 1 Peter 3:18; 2 Peter 1:21.)

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life (Romans 8:5, Phillipians 2:12, 13; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; 1 John 2:29.)

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for it (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:4.)

We believe that all mankind is subject to the death of the body as a result of original sin. The soul and spirit do not die, but immediately after death enter into a conscious state of happiness or misery according to the character here possessed by rejection or acceptance of the Savior (Ecclesiastes 12:7; Romans 5:12; Phillippians1:23.)

We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved to everlasting life and the lost without Christ to everlasting damnation (Matthew 24:31-46; Acts 24:15; Revelation 22:11.)

We believe in the personal, imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.)

We believe the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer (Isaiah 53:4 and 5,

James 5:14 and15; 1 Peter 2:24.)
