“Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.”1 Timothy 4:16
What We Believe
We believe that there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4) and Jesus is His Name (Matthew 1:21). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), in the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
SIN AND SALVATION
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation (Romans 3:23). Salvation consists of deliverance from all sin and unrighteousness through the blood of Jesus Christ.
The New Testament experience of salvation consists of:
• repentance from sin,
• water baptism, by immersion, in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission (removal) of sins,
• and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4)
As Christians we are to love God and love others (Mark 12:28-31). We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully (2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14). The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today (1 Corinthians 12:8-10).
HEAVEN AND HELL
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away (rapture) His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15).
