Who we are and what we do as a church must always be securely rooted in what we believe about God and the world in which we live. These are our deepest convictions:
WE BELIEVE . . .
... the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
... there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.
... in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles
... in Jesus' vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father
... in Jesus' personal, future return to this earth in power and glory to rule over the nations.
... the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.
... that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
... in water baptism by immersion
... the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to prevailing prayer.
... the baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.
... in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.
... in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
