What We Believe

Article I 
We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired words of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of the Christ of God – God’s King and Kingdom, as well as God’s Logos – His consummate thought and communication to Humanity.

Article II

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Article III

We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Advocate.

Article IV

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict Humanity of sin, righteousness, and judgment, regenerate, indwell, transform, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.

Article V

We believe that Man was created in the image of God but fell into the state of sin and death, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

Article VI

We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as believe on His finished work and receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God.

Article VII 

We believe that the true Church (Ecclesia) is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head.

Article VIII 

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, and that every local gathering has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.

Article IX

We believe in the personal and visible coming of our Lord Jesus Christ at the end of this age.

Article X 

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment, of the believer to be present with the Lord, of the unbeliever to be separated from the Lord.
