STATEMENT OF FAITH
All Scripture (Old and New Testaments) is divinely
inspired of God; and is the only authority
of faith and Godly conduct.
1 Tim. 3:15-17
There is one true and living God, the Creator of all things; All Knowing, Eternal Love, the Redeemer of mankind, He has revealed Himself as
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
St. John 1:1-14.
We may scripturally speak of the God of heaven as a trinity, though He is One Lord. God as revealed
Himself in three distinct personal attributes and
yet absolutely unified into One
St. John 1:1-14.
Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Word of God explicitly declares:
His virgin birth – Mat.1: 23
His sinless life – Heb. 7:26
His substitutionary sacrifice on the cross – 1 Cor. 15:3
His bodily resurrection
from the dead – Matt. 28:6; 1 Cor. 15:4
His place at the right hand of God – Acts 2:33
The fall of Man
God has created man good and free of any evil. However, man of his own choice transgressed the will and command of God; thereby inheriting the nature of sin which results in physical death as well as spiritual
death (separation from God).
The Salvation of Man
Man can now only be redeemed through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. This salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ, being justified by grace through faith, Rom. 10:9-15. The inward witness of the Spirit and the outward witness of a holy and righteous life are the evidence of salvation
Romans 8:16; Eph. 4:24.
Ordinances of the Church.
Water Baptism. Baptism of water by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. Baptism symbolizes that the “born again” person has died with Christ and has been raised with Him in newness of life
Matt. 28:19: Romans 6:4
The Lord’s Supper. Consisting of bread and the fruit of the vine, expresses our sharing the divine nature of the Lord, Luke 22:14-20. All believers are to share in this memorial until the return of our Lord. As we partake in Holy Communion we remember His suffering and Death
1 Cor. 11:26
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
This being the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church should be experienced by all in the body of Christ today. With the baptism in the Holy Spirit comes a deeper reverence of God, an overflowing of the Spirit, endowment of power for life and service, a greater love for
the mighty things of God
1 Cor.12:1-31; Acts 2:43: Acts 8:12-17;
Acts 2:42; John 7:37-39
Sanctification is the act of separating from evil, sin and the lusts of the world. In identifying with Christ and exercising faith in His sacrificial death and resurrection the believer’s sanctification becomes a reality to him
Heb. 12:14; Gal. 2:20
The Church of the Lord Jesus
Jesus Christ is the head of the Church, His body, and is its source of authority and power. Each person who has been born of the Spirit is an important part of the church of God. The church has as it’s divine mission the command of the Lord Jesus Christ to take the Gospel to all the world,
and to make disciples of all nations
Eph. 1:22: Heb. 12:23; Matt. 28:19-20
The church is established to Evangelize the world, worship God, and edify the body of saints
Eph. 1:11-16; John 4:23-24: Mark 16:15-20
Perfect health is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers. Divine healing is a part of the gospel of Jesus Christ
Matt.8:16-17; James 5:14-16
The dead in Christ will rise first and then those of us who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them and so shall we ever be with the Lord. This is
the precious hope of the church
1 Thess. 4:16,17
This is the time that Christ will visibly return with His saints to reign on the earth for one thousand years. There will be universal peace at this time
Zech. 14:5; Rev. 20:1-6; Isa. 11:6-9
Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life shall go to everlasting punishment and torment; while the righteous shall enter into everlasting life and peace.
Rev 20:12; Rev 20:15
