WE BELIEVE

God’s Word is infallible.  It is His revealed perfect will for our lives.

2 Timothy 3:16-17


There is only one God, made up of three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

Matthew 28:19; John 14:16-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14, 1 John 5:7


Jesus is fully God and fully man.  He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, crucified, and resurrected.  He is our High Priest and Advocate, now seated at the right hand of God the Father.

John 10:30; Matthew 1:18; Hebrews 4:14; Hebrews 12:2


All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.  We all need Jesus.

Romans 3:23

There is a heaven and a hell.  Jesus is the only way to heaven.  There is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved.

Matthew 16:19; Matthew 10:28; John 14:6; Acts 4:11-12

We cannot be saved by our works.  We are saved by God’s grace through faith in Christ alone.  This means that we are saved if we believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, and we confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord!
Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10

Water baptism is an external sign of an internal saving faith in Jesus.  According to the commission Jesus has given us, we baptize in water any born again believer in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 28:19

Baptism with The Holy Spirit is The Promise of the Father, available for every born again believer in Jesus.  Initial physical evidence of being baptized with the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.    
Luke 24:46-49; Acts 1:3-8; Acts 2:1-4; Acts 19:2-6

Praying in tongues (in The Holy Spirit) edifies (builds up) a born again believer in Jesus for victorious, godly living.  

1 Corinthians 14:4, 14-15; Romans 8:27-28; Jude 1:20

The gifts of The Holy Spirit are given to born again believers in Jesus for the profit of all.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11; Romans 12:6-8

Jesus is our healer.  Just as He has forgiven all of our sins, He has healed all of our diseases.   

Isaiah 53:5; Psalm 103:3; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24

Love is God’s great commandment to us.  It sums up the entire law and prophets, and without it, we who preach God’s Word and operate in the gifts of The Holy Spirit are just making noise.  

Matthew 22:36-40; 1 Corinthians 13:1

Grace is God’s gift to us for freedom from sin, not our excuse to continue in it.

John 8:36; Romans 6:1-2

Unity in the diverse body of Christ is a command, and our call to love another is greater than our differences.

Ephesians 4:1-6; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Galatians 3:26-28; 1 John 4:11

Jesus is returning for His bride, The Church.  Those who have died in Jesus will rise to meet Him first, and then those who are still alive in Him will rise to meet them all.

Matthew 24:29-31; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17

God’s Word is eternal.  Jesus Christ is God’s Word made flesh.  Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and therefore the whole of God’s Word is alive, applicable, and active today.

Matthew 24:35; John 1:1, 14; Hebrews 13:8
