We invite you to join us for VBS from July 15th to July 19th!

Church Doctrine

The Church accepts the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired record of God’s revelatory actions in human history and as the authoritative basis for doctrine and practice. The confession of faith drawn up and adopted by this church is regarded as an expression of the essential doctrines of grace as set forth in Scriptures. This document shall be subject to revision by the congregation, as new insights from the Word of God shall indicate ways in which our faith and life may be brought into closer accord with the teachings of Scriptures.

The Scriptures Inspired

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).

The One True Godhead

The triune Godhead is comprised of three (3) separate and distinct personalities, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and function as one entity. Jesus Christ is the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with The Father and The Holy Spirit

Marriage

The divine institute of marriage is a sacred ordination that has been given to promote the procreation of humanity. The sacred covenant bond can only take place between a man and a woman as God originally displayed with the union of Adam and Eve (Genesis 2:21-24″…for this reason a man will leave his mother and father and be united with his wife, and they will become one flesh.”).

Man, His Fall and Redemption

Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in Our image, after Our likeness”. But man, by voluntary transgress, fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).

The Salvation of Man

(a) Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the

cross, Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind (Psalm 103:3), being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. For by Grace we are saved through faith.The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart- that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation` (Romans 3:24; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:8-10).

(b) The Evidence of Salvation. The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation, is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation, is the direct witness of the Spirit Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. And this is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.” hard to live without sinning; and be at peace with everyone SO that he will be pleased with 3 John 3:23) “while you ae waiting for these things to happen and for him to come, try.

(c) Faith and Works. Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however, you when he returns`(1 1 Peter 3:14) our works will determine the rewards in eternity (Romans 10:9-1 and 11 or.5:10).

Baptism in Water

The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be served as commanded in the Scriptures by all who have really repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matt.28:19. Acts 10:47-48: Romans 6:4).

The Lord’s Supper

“And in when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’  In the same way also take the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup, is the new covenant in my blood, Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of` me.` Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup (Cor. 11:24;25, The 28).

Promise of the Father

All believers, are entitled to, and should ardently  expect and earnestly seek, the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Ghost and Fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-31). This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 2:38; 10:44-46; 11:14-16: 15:7-9).

The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit was initially evidenced in scripture by way of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gave utterance. Subsequently other manifestations of spiritual gifts became evidence. We believe that all spiritual gifts equally give evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit in one’s life. It is our belief that all will not speak in tongues of evidence, but that one’s gift and manner of evidence is determined by the wisdom of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2, 6; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 29-30).

The Church

The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in Heaven (Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23).

Blessed Hope

Jesus is coming again to gather all His Saints to Heaven (1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess. 4:16-17 and 11 Thess. 2:1).

The Lake of Fire

Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead. The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and anyone whose name not found written in the book of life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. This is the second death, the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15).
