OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

  • We believe there is one God revealed in triune form, Father, Son & Holy Ghost.

  • We believe that the Bible is the True Word of God, without error and thus is our only guide to understand who God is and what He expects from us.

  • We believe that Salvation is only through the atoning work of Jesus Christ at Calvary.  That we receive Salvation only through the Grace of God and not by any efforts we may make.

  • That all of us are sinners and the only way we can receive salvation is to be born again, that is to believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for our sins.  We must confess our sins to Him and turn from them by allowing Jesus to direct our lives.

  • We believe those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior are members of the Body of Christ, the Church of God.

  • We practice Water Baptism by immersion.

  • We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to empower us to live a godly life.

  • We believe in Divine Healing.

  • We believe there is a Heaven to gain and a Hell to shun.

  • We believe in the resurrection of the believer to eternal life with God and the unbeliever to eternal damnation.

  • We believe in the soon return of Jesus Christ.
