Statement Of Faith
We believe in the God of the Bible who says, “I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.” We believe our Father is the only God whose ways are perfect and that He is the Creator of all (Exodus 3:6-14, Isaiah 45:5, Psalms 18:30, Colossians 1:16, Revelation 4:11).
We believe Jesus Christ is the ‘only begotten Son of God‘ who was born of a virgin by the Holy Spirit. We believe in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world. We believe Jesus Christ is “the Word made flesh,” and that “whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” We believe “Christ was raised up from the dead” and “he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God” (1 John 4:9, Matthew 1:18, Romans 5:11, Romans 5:8, 1 John 2:2, John 1:1,14, John 3:16, Romans 6:4, Revelation 1:18, Mark 16:19, Hebrews 8:1).
We believe, “there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” We believe the Word to be Jesus Christ who was made flesh (1 John 5:7, John 1:14).
We believe the Bible to be the Word of God and that, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,” (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe, “by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” We believe, “if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved,” (Ephesians 2:8, Romans 10:9).
We believe in prayer, that it may be done in private and heard by God. We believe the Holy Spirit will help us with prayer and that our prayers should include that God’s Will be done and by asking in the Name of Jesus Christ, (Matthew 6:1-6, Romans 8:26-27, Matthew 6:9-10, 1 John 5:14-15, John 14:13).
We believe water baptism is for all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. As Christ was baptized so should we as He is our example (Matthew 3:13-15; Romans 6:3-5; Acts 2:37-39, 1 Peter 2:21).
We believe Satan (the antichrist) will appear with his angels at the sixth trumpet claiming to be Jesus Christ in order to deceive the inhabitants of the earth. We believe God’s Election will be delivered up before Satan as a witness to the world during the Tribulation. We believe Jesus Christ returns at the seventh trumpet “after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders” (Revelation 13:11-13, Luke 21:12-15, Acts 2:1-20, Matthew 24:29-31, 2 Thessalonians 2:9).
We believe Satan who is the serpent to be the ultimate enemy of God and His children (Genesis 3:1, Revelation 12:9-10, 1 Peter 5:8).
