(2 Tim. 3:15-17: Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)

WE BELIEVE...in one God, Creator of all things, Who is infinitely perfect and who
exists eternally in three distinct Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.                   
(Deut. 6:4: John 1: 1-3; Phil. 2:6: Acts 5:3-4)

WE BELIEVE...Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth as Savior of the
world.

WE BELIEVE...Man was created in God's image. By his own choice man fell, and
his only hope of redemption is through Jesus Christ, the Son of God.            
(Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)

WE BELIEVE...Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins.
We believe that salvation is found by placing faith in what Jesus did on the cross.
We believe Jesus rose from the day on the third day and is coming again.  Man's
only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross,
Jesus Christ became the curse for us; He became sin and sickness, this providing
both salvation and healing for all Mankind. This salvation is made available to all
men by God's grace through faith in the substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus of
Nazareth, in His death, burial and resurrection. This great salvation comes to us
by believing in your heart that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead on the third
day, and confessing with your mouth that He is the Lord of your life.
(Romans 3:24; Romans 10:8-10; Ephesians 2:8)

WE BELIEVE...The inward  evidence to the believer is the confirming witness of
the Spirit of  God.        (Romans 8:16)
We believe the outward evidence to all men is a life of love and holiness.
( 1 john 3:23; John 13:35)

WE BELIEVE...Our salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and His Grace, and not
by human works; however, we believe works are the evidence of our faith in Jesus
Christ, and will determine our eternal rewards.
(Acts 16:3; Romans 10:9-10; Romans 14:10-12
2 Corinth 5:10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3: 5-7)

WE BELIEVE...baptism in water is a symbol of the cleansing power of the
blood of Jesus Christ and testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus. We
believe water baptism is a  witness to the world that a believer has
died with Christ and has been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
(Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47; Romans 6:4)

WE BELIEVE...in Communion as a celebration of the Lord's Supper by eating the
bread and drinking the cup in remembrance of what Jesus Christ did for us on the
cross and as a covenant with God the Father, through our Lord Jesus
Christ.                              (2Corinthians 11: 24-30)

WE BELIEVE...In the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the scriptural evidence of a
believers supernatural ability to speak in a unknown tongue as the Spirit gives the
utterance. Also, the Holy Spirit's power to bear witness to the resurrection of
Jesus Christ in word and supernatural manifestation of signs and wonders and
miracles, done in the name of the Lord Jesus.
( Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46)

WE BELIEVE...The church is the body of Christ and each believer is an
important part of that body and has been given by Christ a specific
purpose and function within His Body.
( Ephesians 1:22; Eph.2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)

WE BELIEVE...that every believer should seek to grow in the grace and
knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and forsake sin, and regularly and
cheerfully give of themselves and of God's spiritual and material gifts to
them; for the building up of the body; and to watch over and pray for one another
in brotherly love.

WE BELIEVE...as children of God, we are over-comers and more than
conquerors and God intends for each of us to experience the abundant life God
has in store for us.
