We Believe

Bible and path225x150 3
*  The inspiration of the Bible, equally in all parts and without error in its origin, to be the Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct;

*  The one God, eternally existent Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things, who created man by a direct, immediate act;

*  The pre-existence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary death, burial, bodily resurrection, ascension to Heaven, and the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is presently seated at the right hand of God, the Father, and is true God and man;

*  The fall of man, the need of regeneration by the operation of the Holy Spirit on the basis of grace alone, and the resurrection of all to life or damnation;

*  The personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ;

*  The sanctification of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ through the Word of God by the Holy Spirit in personal holiness of heart and life;

*  The divine healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, that is included in the atonement;

*  The baptism of the Holy Spirit as distinct from the new birth, with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance, and in the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit and their availability to all believers; and

*  The evangelizing and witnessing of God's saving grace through the ministry of the Holy Spirit in accordance with the Christian Commission of Matthew 28:19.
