Statement of Faith

We Believe that Jesus Christ

  • is the Son of the Living God and the only Savior from sin.
  • is the Great Physician and the Healer of the body and soul through the blood atonement.
  • is the baptizer with the Holy Ghost today, just as He was on the Day of Pentecost.
  • is the soon-coming King, coming back to the earth again as the only hope for our dying world.
  • is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Primary Experiences of the Christian Life

There are three primary experiences of the Christian life: salvation, water baptism, and the Holy Spirit baptism.

  • Salvation is initiated by a prayer of faith in Jesus.
  • is completed by God’s grace.
  • is maintained by a lifestyle of Biblical righteousness.
  • is demonstrated by works.
  • is lost when we sin and do not repent.
  • is necessary to enter Heaven in eternity.
  • Water baptism was exemplified by Christ.
  • is not necessary to be saved, but is definitely an important Christian experience not to be negated.
  • is a public demonstration of faith in Jesus Christ.
  • is executed in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
  • Holy Spirit baptism is evidenced by speaking in tongues.
  • is an experience different and distinct from Salvation or Water Baptism.

Primary responsibilities for each Christian

There are four primary responsibilities of each Christian: prayer, outreach, reading the Bible, and fellowship.

  • Daily Prayer: Seeking God in prayer is a fundamental necessity of maintaining our relationship with Him.
  • Outreach: Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others.
  • Reading the Bible: Feeding our spirit with the Word of God, and living thereby.
  • Fellowship: Gathering together in a local assembly of believers for worship and admonition, and spiritually enriching camaraderie with other believers.
