Statement of Belief

The Scriptures Inspired

The Bible is the inspired Word of GOD, a revelation from GOD to men, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason {II Timothy 3:15-17, I Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12}

The One True GOD

The one true GOD has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM”, and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. {Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isaiah 43:10, 11; Matthew 28:19}

Man’s Fall and Redemption

Man was created good and upright, for GOD said, “Let us make man in our image and after our likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD. {Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 3:17; Romans 5:12-21}

The Salvation of Man

– Conditions of Salvation
The Grace of GOD, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward GOD and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of GOD according to the hope of eternal life. {Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Romans 10:13-15; Luke 24:47}

-Evidences of Salvation
The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. {Romans 8:16}. The outward evidence to all men is a life of holiness {I Thessalonians 4:7; II Timothy 1:9}

The Promise of the Father

All believers should ardently expect and earnestly seek the Promise of the Father, which the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes the infilling power for life and service, and the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry {Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; I Corinthians 12:1-31}. This experience may be distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the New Birth {Acts 2:38, 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9}.

Sanctification Process

By the power of the Holy Spirit we strive to obey the command, “Be ye holy, for I am holy”. Sanctification is the will of GOD for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to GOD’s Word {Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15,16; I Thessalonians 5:23,24; I John 2:6}

The Church

The church is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of GOD through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer is an integral part of the church, and their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life {I Thessalonians 2:4}


Divinely called and Scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a two-fold purpose: {1} The evangelization of the world, and {2} The edification of the Body of Christ {Mark 16:15,20; Ephesians 4:11-13}

The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns fire and brimstone, which is the second death {Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15}

Holy Ordinances

Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed {as commanded in the Scriptures} by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they have also been released to walk with Him in newness of life {Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4}
