Inspiration of Scripture:
We believe in the absolute authority of both the Old and New Testament as the inspired Word of God and it is the supernatural revelation of God to man. The Word of God is infallible, and is the authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Tim 3:15-17; 1 Th 2:13; 2 Pet. 1:21)
We believe that all men in their natural state are lost, alienated from God, and are spiritually dead. (Eph. 2:1-3; Rom. 5:12-19, Ps. 51:5)
We believe in salvation, which is a gift of God by grace (it is undeserved & unearned), and is received in faith in Jesus Christ. Therefore, God offers freely the gift of salvation to those who repent and place their faith in the death, burial, and resurrection, as sufficient payment for their sin. (Jn 3:3,16; Rom 5:9-11; Eph 2:6-9)
We believe the Holy Spirit is a gift from God that provides power for life and service. The Holy Spirit is a gift from God and is available to those who seek it. We believe in the spiritual gifts from God, ministered as the Holy Spirit wills. (Acts 1;8; 1 Cor 12:1-31)
We believe the Godhead exists in three persons; God the Father, god the Son, and God the Holy Spirit-All three in one. (Matt 28;19; 2 Cor 13:14; Mk 12:2
We believe divine healing is accomplished by the redemptive work of Jesus’ blood shed on the cross (Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24). We believe divine healing may be received by the laying on of hands by the elders (James 5:14-16), by the prayer of an anointed person gifted by the Holy Spirit for healing the sick (1 Corinthians 12:9), or by a direct act of receiving this provision by faith (Mark 11:23,24).
