We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God (II Tim. 3:16).
We believe that the Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses, therefore all doctrine, faith, hope, and all instruction for the church must be based upon and harmonize with the Bible (II Peter 1:20-21).
We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature, and that He possesses absolute, indivisible deity (Deuteronomy 6:4).
We believe that the one true God, the Jehovah of the Old Testament, took upon Himself the form of man, and as the Son of man, was born of the virgin Mary. As Paul says, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness. God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (I Tim. 3:16).
We believe that in Jesus Christ dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Col. 2:9, Col. 1:19). Therefore, Jesus Christ in His humanity was man, and in His deity was and is God. His flesh was the lamb, or sacrifice of God, and He is the only mediator between God and man (I Tim. 2:5).
We believe in salvation through the grace and blood of Jesus Christ, and that pardon and forgiveness of sins is obtained through genuine repentance, which is a confessing and a forsaking of sins (Luke 13:3, Luke 24:47, Acts 2:38, Acts 11:18, Acts 17:30).
We believe in the necessity of baptism, for “wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water, the like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us…” (I Peter 3:8), and that baptism must be administered in the name of Jesus (Acts 2:38). We believe this to be in direct obedience to the commandment of Matt 28:19; for the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is Jesus Christ; thus the very disciples who were given this commandment baptized only in Jesus name (Acts 8:16, Acts 10:48, Acts 19:5).
We believe in the outpouring of the Holy Ghost just as was prophesied by the prophet Joel (Joel 2:28) and just as it happened in the Book of Acts (Acts 2:4). We also believe that the initial sign of receiving the Holy Ghost is speaking with other tongues (languages) just as recorded in the Book of Acts (Acts 2:4, 10:46, and 19:6). We believe that the Holy Ghost is the promise of the Father as spoken of by Jesus Christ Himself, and that His Spirit is given to us so that we may receive His power and be His witness (Acts 1:8).
We believe Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8), and that He is still the divine healer of all manner of sickness and disease. We believe that by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5) and that by laying hands on the sick, they shall recover (James 5:14-16).
We believe that godly living should characterize the life of every child of God, and that we should live according to the pattern and example given in the Word of God (Titus 2:11-12, I Peter 1:15-19). We believe that all Christians should follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord (Heb. 12:14).
We believe that tithing is God’s financial plan to provide for His work, and has been since the days of Abraham (Mal. 3).
We believe that Jesus Christ shall come again, hence the children of God are earnestly and hopefully looking forward to that glorious event (Matt. 24, Acts 1:11, 3:19-21, I Cor. 11:26, Phil. 3:20-21, I Thes. 4:14-17).
We believe in and recognize the biblical institution of human governments, and we pledge our support and allegiance to the United States of America.
