We Believe"

We believe that the Bible is the infallible and explicit word of the eternal God, written by men inspired by the Holy Ghost. (II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:21)

We believe in ONE GOD, who in all His power presented Himself to us as the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and the Holy Ghost in regeneration. (ONE GOD: Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 42:8; Isaiah 43:10-11; Isaiah 44:6-8, 24; Isaiah 45:21-23; Isaiah 46:6-9; Mark 12:28-30; Ephesians 4:5-6; Galatians 3:20; I Timothy 2:5; James 2:19; FATHER: Deuteronomy 32:6; Malachi 2:10; SON: Matthew 1:18-20; Luke 1:35; HOLY GHOST: Genesis 1:2; Acts 1:5-8)

We believe that Jesus Christ is that one God manifested in the flesh, and that in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily. (John 1:1-3, 14, 17; Colossians 2:9; II Corinthians 5:19; II Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15; I Timothy 3:16; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 1:3; II Peter 1:1; John 8:24, 58; Isaiah 43:25; Isaiah 45:21-22; Mark 2:7; Isaiah 9:6; Revelations 21:6-7; John 10:30; John 14:9-10; Galatians 4:6; Philippians 1:19; II Corinthians 3:17; Revelations 1; Revelations 4; Revelations 22:3-4)

We believe that repentance is an essential key for salvation and is a necessary first step to having ones sins washed away. (Acts 26:18-20; Mark 1:15;Luke 13:3, 5; Acts 17:30; II Peter 3:9; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Luke 3:8; II Corinthians 7:10)

We believe that in order to have sins removed initially, one must be baptized (completely submerged in water) in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. (Acts 2:38; I Peter 3:21; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:41; Matthew 3:6-16; Acts 8:35-38; Acts 19:1-5; Acts 10:43, 47-48; Acts 22:16; Romans 6:4)

We believe in God’s ability to infill us with the Holy Ghost.  (Acts 1:4-5; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 10:44-47; Acts 19:1-6; John 7:38-39; Acts 5:32; Galatians 3:14; Ephesians 1:13)

We believe that the initial sign for receiving the Holy Ghost is speaking in another tongue or language as the Spirit of God gives utterance. (Mark 16:17; Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-47; Acts 19:6; I Corinthians 14:18)

We believe in clean and holy living and that living so is so ordered by God in His Holy Scriptures. (Romans 1:17; Romans 11:17-23; Hebrews 2:1-4; Hebrews 6:1; Hebrews 10:35-39; Hebrews 12:14)

We believe that it is by faith that we are saved, and that without faith, it is impossible to please God. (Mark 16:16; Ephesians 2:8; 2 Timothy 3:15; Hebrews 11:6)

We believe that the only way for a saint to have sin purged is through Holy Communion. (Hebrews 6:24; Luke 22:14-20; John 13:2-17)

We believe that Holy Communion should be done as it was in the bible, with foot washing and with the administering and intake of unleavened bread, symbolic of the body of Jesus Christ, and of wine, symbolic of the blood of Jesus Christ. (John 13:2-17; I Corinthians 10:16-17; I Corinthians 11:23-29)

We believe that Jesus Christ will return for a church that has prepared herself, without spot or blemish. (Matthew 26:36, 42; Luke 17:20, 37; I Corinthians 15:51, 54; Philippians 3:20-21; I Thessalonians 4:13, 17; Titus 2:13)

“Living He Loved Us, Dying He saved us, and Burred He carried our sins all away”
