What We Believe

THE HOLY BIBLE is inspired by God.

THE TRINITY: Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one.

THE FALL OF MAN People were created in the image of God, but by disobedience (sin) we fell from perfection.

THE PLAN OF SALVATION While we were still sinners Christ died for us, providing pardon for all who believe on Him.

SALVATION THROUGH GRACE Forgiveness cannot be earned, but is a gift of God based on Christ’s righteousness and

death.

REPENTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE By sincerely repenting and accepting Christ, we are forgiven by God.

NEW BIRTH Our hearts and lives are changed when we ask for forgiveness and accept Christ as Lord.  This is the

beginning of a new life.

BAPTISM: We practice baptism as an outward sign of an inward work.

COMMUNION:  Communion commemorates the Lord’s supper, and symbolizes the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

FILLING WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT Being filled with the Holy Spirit gives the believer power to live as God wants, as in Bible

days.

THE GIFTS AND FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT The Holy Spirit has gifts to give the Christian, and we should show spiritual fruit as

evidence of a Spirit-filled life.

DIVINE HEALING Divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith.

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST is personal and imminent.
