Statement of Faith

We believe the following:
1)        The Bible is the Word of God:
              a) Inspired by God Himself (II Tim. 3:15-17)
              b) Infallible
              c) Authoritative, Revealed, Will of God (Heb.4:12; John 7:17)
2)        There is one true God, eternally existent in three person:  Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit (Mark 12:29; I  John 5: 6-8)
3)        JESUS CHRIST is perfect deity and perfect humanity (John 3:18; Mark 2:27-28)
              His virgin birth (John 3:16)
              His sinless life ( I Peter 2:22)
              His miracles (Acts 10:38)
              His vicarious and atoning death through His shad blood (I Cor. 15: 3-4)
              His bodily resurrection ( Eph. 1:20)
              His Ascension to the right hand of the Father ( Eph. 1:20)
              His personal return in power and glory (I Thess. 4:13-18)
              His milleniniel reign (Rev. 19:11-16; 20: 1-7)
4)        The salvation of men:
              a)   The shed blood of Jesus Christ, grace through faith, believing in the heart
that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confessing that Jesus Christ is the
Lord with the  mouth, will result in men’s  salvation ( Rom.   3:21-30; 10:8-10).
              b)   Regeneration of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the New Birth
( Gal. 4:4-7).
5)        Water Baptism is an ordinance of the church symbolizing to the world that
one has died with Jesus and has also been raised with him in resurrection power to walk in newness of life.
(Matt. 28:19; Acts 10: 47-48; symbolizing – Rom 6:4-11; Eph 2:6).
6)        The Lord’s Supper is an ordinance of the church symbolizing the broken body
and shed blood of Jesus Christ as the New Covenant between God and man
(I Cor. 11: 24-25, 28).
7)        The evidence of the in-filling of the Holy Ghost, which is the Promise of theFather, is the physical sign of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives
utterance,and by the subsequent manifestation of the spiritual power in public testimony and service after the New Birth (Acts 2:4; Acts 19:2,6:
Acts   2:42-43; Matt. 3:11; I Cor. 12:7-11).
8)        The Church is the Body of Christ, the dwelling place and home of God   through
the Holy Spirit.   Each believer born of God’s Spirit is an integral   part of the
general assembly, and the Church of the Firstborn,  which is written in Heaven    (Eph. 1: 22-23; 2:19,22).
9)       We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that if they are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they who are lost unto the
resurrection of damnation (John 5: 24, 28-29).
10)     In the atonement of Jesus and His resurrection, deliverance from sickness,  

                disease and mental torments is provided.  These privileges are for the
believers ( Isa. 52:4, Matt. 8:16-17; Mark 16:18; John 5:6-14;
I Peter 2:24; Col 1:3;   Eph.1:20-21).
11)     Total prosperityspiritual (John 3:3,11; mental (II Tim 1:7;Rom 12:2).physical

                (Isa. 53:4-5; Matt 8:17); financial,   (III John 2;  Mal. 3:10-11);
and social (Prov 3:4).
12)    Women in the Ministry:  There is no scriptural prohibition concerning women  

               ministering in the church  (Acts 18:24-26;   Acts 21:8-9).  Women are part of the
One Body of Christ, which is neither male nor female, with gifts differing
according to the grace that is given to them (Gal. 3:28; Rom. 12:4-6)
