Statement of Faith
- We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct.
- We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
- We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection and His ascension into heaven.
- We believe that mankind’s only hope of redemption is through faith in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.
- We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
- We believe that the redemptive work of Jesus Christ includes healing for the body in answer to believing prayer.
- We believe in the present day ministry of the Holy Spirit, the supernatural gifts of the Spirit and that signs and wonders are for today.
- We believe that Jesus will soon return to gather His saints to be with Him.
- We believe that those that accept and submit to Jesus Christ will spend eternity with Him in Heaven and that those who do not will be eternally separated.
