What We Believe
- We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.
- We believe that there is One God, eternally existent in three Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ at His return.
- We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin, is through repentance, faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ and being baptized in water.
- We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
- We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing in prayer.
- We believe that the baptism in the Holy Ghost, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who asks for it.
- We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a Holy and separated life in this present world, Amen.
