Our Doctrine 

Statement of Beliefs

 
We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible (unalterable) word of God, written by holy men of old as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. II Peter 1:20,21
We believe in ONE God, infinite in power, whose name is Jesus. We believe that he was revealed to us as Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Spirit in His comforting grace that never leaves those who trust in Him. I Cor 8:6, 1 Eph 4:6.11; II Cor 5:19; Joel 2:28
We believe that in Jesus Christ dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; for it pleased the Father that in HIM should all the fullness dwell. Col 2:9; Col 1:19
We believe in the virgin birth; that Jesus was both human and divine -- God manifest in the flesh. (I Timothy 3:16)
We believe in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus.
We believe in baptism in water by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. Acts 2:4, 38;  Acts 19:5-6
  
 We believe in the literal second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We also believe in the glorious catching away of the saints (the rapture), before the tribulation and that only those who are filled with His Spirit and living a life of Holiness will go with Him when He comes. I Thes 4:13-18; I Cor 15:51-54; Acts 2:11
We believe in living a Holy and Sanctified life apart from which one can not please God Heb 12:14
We believe in Divine Healing, Communion and foot washing
I Thes 4:3,7; I Cor 11:23-26; John 13:4-15
