Affirmation of Faith

"What We Believe"

We Believe:

The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Written Word of God;

There is one God eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit;

In the Deity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin Birth, in His Sinless Life, in His Miracles, in His Vicarious and Atoning Death, in His Bodily Resurrection, in His Ascension to the Right Hand of the Father;

In the Blessed Hope – the rapture of the Church at Christ’s coming;

The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of  Christ;

In the Regeneration by the Holy Spirit and it is essential for personal salvation.  The redemptive work & the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Holy Life;

In the Biblical definition of Marriage between one man and one woman according to Genesis 1:27-28;

In the 9 Spiritual Gifts (wisdom, knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits,    divers kinds of tongues, & interpretation of tongues), for the unity of the Body of Christ. ” But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally  as He will”. (I Corinthians 12)

In the 5 Fold Ministry, “some apostles, some prophets, some pastors, some evangelist, some teachers, for the perfecting  of  the saints, for the working of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ”. (Ephesians 4:11 &12)

In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
