Our Tenets of Faith:
We believe the Bible as originally given, to be the only inspired, infallible Word of God which is the authoritative rule for creed and conduct for them who are in Christ Jesus. 2 Peter 1:21
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons consisting in One, and One in three.
We believe 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. 1 Timothy 3:16
We believe in evangelistic and missionary fervor and endeavor. Acts 1:8, Mark 16:15-18
We believe that Man was created in the image of God and was originally sinless, but fell into sin through disobedience. Therefore the universal sinfulness and guilt of mankind since the fall renders man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, redemption through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are absolutely essential. This salvation is provided by the grace of God and is received by man through repentance toward God and faith toward of Lord Jesus Christ. Hebrews 9:22
We believe in the keeping power of God and a holy walk, not after flesh but after the Spirit. Jude 24, Romans 8:4
We believe in sanctification and holiness of heart and overcoming life as Scriptural requirements for the Bride of Christ. Ephesians 5:25-27
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, 10:46, 19:6, and present ministry of the Spirit in and through the believer as manifested in the five ministries as they are being restored in end-time revival, the gifts of the Spirit, and the fruit of the Spirit. Ephesians 4:11, 1 Corinthians 12:8-11, Galatians 5:22, 23, Titus 2:13, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
We believe in Christ’s imminent personal return in power and great glory, in His millennial reign and in His everlasting dominion. Acts 1:11, Revelation 20:4, Daniel 7:14
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment. John 5:28, 29, Revelation 20:15
We believe in storehouse tithing. Malachi 3:10
