What we believe...
The bible :
The Bible is the mind of Christ, and is inspired,. It is the only authoritative word of God, and is without error.
The trinity :
There is one God manifested in three personalities, Father (Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalms 90:2; 1Timothy 1:17), Son (John 1:1-2; John 8:58; Hebrews 1:8; 1 John 1:3), and Holy Spirit (Hebrews 1:8; Acts 1:8)
The devil :
Satan is real, and his present control over sinful man does exist.
the messiah :
Jesus Christ is God. He has existed from before the beginning of time and was born of a virgin.
Christ lived a sinless life. He performed miracles, died for our sins, rose from the dead, and sits at the right hand of the Father.
The people :
Man is fallen and sinful. This brings about death, both physical and spiritual separation from God.
The return of Christ :
There will be a second coming of Christ, including a rapture of the saints followed by the visible return of Christ with his Church to reign on earth for one thousand years.
The baptism :
Water baptism is necessary in identifying with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
Baptism in the Holy Spirit, who bestows spiritual gifts, such as the word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, healing, working of miracles, prophesy, discerning of spirits, and speaking in tongues. These gifts have been present since the day of pentecost, and will continue until the day of our Lord's return.
the healing :
Divine healing is a part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.
The gospel :
Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and Faith in Christ.
Believers will be resurrected into eternal life in heaven, while unbelievers are resurrected to eternal punishment in hell.
