 Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.
  • We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.
  • We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
  • We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.
  • We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for Him.
  • We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world.
