WE BELIEVE THE SCRIPTURES ARE INSPIRED BY GOD AND DECLARE HIS DESIGN AND PLAN FOR MANKIND

WE BELIEVE THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE GOD, REVEALED IN THREE PERSONS; FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT (COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE TRINITY)

WE BELIEVE IN THE DAY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AS GODS SON JESUS WAS BOTH HUMAN AND DIVINE

WE BELIEVE THOUGH ORIGINALLY GOOD, MAN WILLINGLY FELL INTO SIN, USHERING EVIL AND DEATH, BOTH PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL, INTO THE WORLD 

WE BELIEVE EVERY PERSON CAN HAVE RESTORED FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH SALVATION (ACCEPTING CHRIST'S OFFER  OF FORGIVENESS OF SINS)

WE BELIEVE AND PRACTICE  TWO ORDINANCES- 1) WATER BAPTISM BY IMMERSION AFTER REPENTANCE OF ONES SINS AND RECEIVING CHRIST'S GIFT OF SALVATION, AND 2) HOLY COMMUNION (THE LORDS SUPPER) AS A SYMBOLIC REMEMBRANCE OF CHRIST'S SUFFERING AND DEATH FOR OUR SALVATION 

WE BELIEVE THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A SPECIAL EXPERIENCE FOLLOWING SALVATION THAT EMPOWERS BELIEVERS FOR WITNESSING AND EFFECTIVE SERVICE, JUST AS IT DID IN THE NEW TESTAMENT TIMES. 

WE BELIEVE THE INITIAL PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS SPEAKING IN TONGUES AS EXPERIENCED ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST AND REFERENCES THROUGHOUT THE BOOK OF ACTS AND THE EPISTLES.

WE BELIEVE SANCTIFICATION INITIALLY OCCURS AT SALVATION AND IS NOT ONLY A DECLARATION THAT A BELIEVER IS HOLY, BUT ALSO A PROGRESSIVE LIFELONG PROCESS OF SEPARATING FROM EVEIL AS BELIEVERS CONTINUALLY DRAW CLOSER TO GOD AND BECOME MORE CHRISTLIKE. 

WE BELIEVE THE CHURCH HAS A MISSION TO SEEK AND SAVE ALL WHO ARE LOST IN SIN. WE BELIEVE "THE CHURCH" IS THE BODY OF CHRIST AND CONSIST OF THE PEOPLE WHO, THROUGHOUT TIME, HAVE ACCEPTED GODS OFFER OF REDEMPTION (REGARDLESS OF RELIGIOUS DENOMINATION) THROUGH THE SACRIFICIAL DEATH OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST 

WE BELIEVE A DIVINELY CALLED AND SCRIPTURAL ORDAINED LEADERSHIP MINISTRY SERVES THE CHURCH. THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT EACH OF US UNDER LEADERSHIP MUST COMMIT OURSELVES TO REACH OTHERS FOR CHRIST, TO WORSHIP HIM WITH OTHER BELIEVERS, AND TO BUILD UP OR EDIFY THE BODY OF BELIEVERS (THE CHURCH).

WE BELIEVE DIVINE HEALING FOR THE SICK IS A PRIVILEGE FOR CHRISTIANS TODAY AND IS PROVIDED TODAY AND IS PROVIDED FOR IN CHRIST ATONEMENT.  (HIS SACRIFICIAL DEATH ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS).

WE BELIEVE ​IN THE BLESSED HOPE WHEN JESUS RAPTURES HIS CHURCH PRIOR TO HIS RETURN TO EARTH (THE SECOND COMING). AT THIS FUTURE MOMENT IN TIME ALL BELIEVERS WHO HAVE DIED WILL RISE FROM THEIR GRAVES AND WILL MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR, AND CHRISTIANS WHO ARE ALIVE WILL BE CAUGHT UP WITH THEM, TO BE WITH THE LORD FOREVER 

WE BELIEVE ​IN THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST WHEN JESUS RETURNS WITH HIS SAINTS AT HIS SECOND COMING AND BEGINS HIS BENEVOLENT RULE OVER EARTH FOR 1000 YEARS. THIS MILLENNIAL REIGN WILL BRING SALVATION OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF UNIVERSAL PEACE. 

WE BELIEVE A FINAL JUDGEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE REJECTED CHRIST. THEY WILL BE JUDGED FOR THEIR SINS AND CONSIGNED TO ETERNAL PUNISHMENT IN A PUNISHING LAKE OF FIRE  

WE BELIEVE AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE PERFECT NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH THAT CHRIST IS PREPARING FOR ALL PEOPLE, OF ALL TIME, WHO HAVE ACCEPTED HIM. WE WILL LIVE AND DWELL WITH HIM THERE FOREVER FOLLOWING HIS MILLENNIAL REIGN ON EARTH. 'AND SO SHALL WE FOREVER BE WITH THE LORD!'
