These people rise up like a lioness; like a majestic lion they stand.
– Numbers 23:24
We believe that the Holy Bible is the Infallible Word of God, Truth, and written by Divine Inspiration. We believe that God has revealed Himself to man throughout the Scriptures. The Bible is a book of Divine instruction.
We believe that there is Only One true and living God. He exists and is revealed as One in Three persons, The Holy Trinity being the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
He is Fatherly in character toward all men. He is All-Powerful, All- Knowing, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Sovereign.
Jesus Christ is the Eternal Son of God. We believe He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He was crucified, willingly shedding His blood for man’s redemption and for the forgiveness of sins to all who receive the sacrifice and accept Him as personal Lord and Savior. He was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day He rose from the dead with a glorified body, appeared to His disciples, ascended to heaven, and is now exalted and seated at the right hand of God the Father where He is the One Mediator, bridging reconciliation between God and man-kind. He will return in power, authority and glory to judge the world and to complete His redemptive mission. We believe in the rapture of the church. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever-present Lord.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God (the comforter, the Intersessor, the Strengthener, and Counselor). He guides man to understand truth, and He draws man to the Father. He convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement. He leads and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
We believe that man was created and formed in the image of God by a unique act of God Himself. Man was created pure and innocent, with a free choice. By man’s choice, sin entered the human race. Thus, the fall came by choosing to follow the temptation of Satan. The redemption of man comes through receiving Christ as a free gift and believing in one’s heart that Jesus died for sins through shedding of His own blood, and receiving and accepting the free gift of Salvation offered to all – “whosoever will”.
We believe in the new birth as a work of God’s grace whereby believers become new creations in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart transformed by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Church is the united Body of Christ in covenant. It consists of all true believers who are associated together by their faith and fellowship of the gospel. The various local churches are smaller entities of the universal body of true believers. The church operates under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and He raises up Pastors, and Leadership. The Pastors are the shepherds of the individual flocks.
We believe in following the example of Christ in water baptism. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, and the believer’s death to sin, burial of the old life, and a resurrection to walk in the newness of life in Jesus Christ. We believe in all scriptural gifts and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Lord’s Supper as a symbolic act of obedience whereby believers in the Body of Christ remember the death of Christ by partaking of bread and fruit of the vine.
We believe that believers should give a tithe, or a tenth, of their total income to the local Church, Body of Christ of which they are a part.
