What We Believe

We are a body of believers committed to teaching and obeying the inspired word as it was handed down by the holy apostles and prophets in the spirit (ref. Ephesians 3:5)

Core Beliefs

God

There is only one God consisting of three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, who are co-equal, co-substantial, and co-eternal.  He is the God who made the world and all things in it, and in Him we live and move and have our very being (Acts 17:24-28)

Revelation

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Revelation is final and complete (Jude 1:3,5; 2 Peter 1:3) and is not a matter of ones own private interpretation. (2 Peter 1:20)

Salvation

Man is born without sin and does not inherit the fathers guilt. (Ezekiel 18:19-20)

At an age of accountability, (only known by God and the individual) man chooses sin and becomes lost and separated from God. (Deuteronomy 30:19;  Isaiah 59:1-2)

It is only through Jesus Christ and His cross that man has any hope of salvation. (Romans 5:8-9)

Salvation is by grace through faith. (Ephesians 2:5-8)  Grace, being God's unmerited favor and love, and faith, being man's trust and obedience to the Gospel. (2 Thessalonians 1:8, 1 Peter 4:17)  There is a denial and death to self and a total surrender to the will of Jesus (Matthew 16:24-27), through repentance (Luke 13:3-5), confession (Matthew 10:32, Romans 10:9), and immersion in water (Acts 8:35-37, Acts 9:18, Acts 10:47, Acts 16:33).

Worship

Worship is sacred to God and He has always required acceptable worship. (1 Peter 2:5, Leviticus 10:1-2). Jesus commanded worship to be in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).  We believe the Holy Scriptures teach us to worship God through prayer (Luke 18:1), singing (Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:19,20), the Lord's Supper  (1 Corinthians 11:23-26; Mathew 26:26-29), and giving (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).

FAithful living

We believe the word of God teaches a daily death of self (1 Corinthians 15:31), and a consistent walk in the light, which enables a fellowship with  other faithful Christians and a continuous cleansing of His blood (1 John 1:6-9).  Apart from this walk in the light, a Christian is vulnerable to being out of fellowship with God, His grace, and His Saints (Acts 8:18-23; Galatians 5:1-4;  1 Corinthians 5:9-13). It is His love that motivates His children to sacrifice and offer themselves even unto death (Galatians 2:20;  Romans 12:1-2; Revelation 2:10).
