What We Believe

1. We believe that salvation comes only through the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the only begotten Son of God; conceived of the Holy Ghost; and, born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus was crucified, buried and raised from the dead. (Matthew 1:21;Matthew 12:39-40; Matthew 20:17-19; John 3:16)

2. We believe in the second coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, including the rapture and revelation. (Matthew 24:27; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; Revelation 19:11-16)

3. We believe that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Repentance to God for every believer is necessary for the forgiveness of sin. (Romans 3:23)

4. We believe that water baptism, by immersion, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ is for the remission of sin. (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-4)

5. We believe that the receiving and indwelling of the Holy Ghost places you into the body of Christ and gives you the power to live righteously. (Acts 1:8; Romans 6:3-11; I Corinthians 12:13; Colossians 2:10-12)

6. We believe that the children of God are required to live a holy and sanctified life. (Romans 12:1-2; II Timothy 2:19; Ephesians 4:24-28; I Peter 3:8-18)

7. We believe that we are saved by grace through faith. (Ephesians 2:8)

8. We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate in the flesh. (John 10:30; John 14:6; Philippians 2:6)

9. We believe that the Lord's Supper should be commemorated. (I Corinthians 11)

10. We believe that God blesses his children financially through giving and tithing, which is a form of worship. (Proverbs 3:9; Malachi 3:8-10; Luke 6:38)

11. We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God and that all scripture (old and new testament) governs the lives of Christians. (II Timothy 2:15; I Corinthians 13:7)

12. We believe that sin separates man from God. The only way to reconcile man to God is to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and apply His blood to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (Ephesians 1:7; I John 1:7-10; Revelation 1:5)

13. We believe that in order for you to be written in the book of life, one must be born again. (John 3:3-5)

14. We believe we should be given to hospitality through customer service and support which exemplifies the Love of Christ. (Romans 12:13
