What we Believe
Our Church Doctrine
The Godhead (Trinity)
We believe the Godhead eternally exists in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are one God having the same nature, attributes (Infinite, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient) perfection’s and, therefore, worthy of our complete and total praise, worship, honor and obedience.
(Genesis 1:1; Deut. 6:4; Isaiah 45:21-22; Matthew 3:16-17)
God the Father
We believe God the Father is eternally God, an equal part of the Godhead (Trinity) and is acknowledged as such throughout the Holy Scriptures. In 1 Corinthians 1:3 we are told “May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ send you grace and peace.”
(See also Malachi 2:10: Mathew 11:25-27; Matthew 28:19)
We believe Jesus Christ is eternally God, God’s only-begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and sinless in life. He made atonement for the Sin of the world by His death on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His personal, visible, and bodily return to the world according to His promise.
(Matthew 1:18-25; Matthew 28:5, 6; John 3:14-16; John 11:25; John 11:26; Acts 1:9-11; 2).
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is eternally God and came forth to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment and to regenerate sanctify and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide.
(Mark 13:11; John 14:26; John 16:8-11; 1 Corinthians 2:10-13; 1 Corinthians 12:13; 1 Thessalonians 1:5 and Titus 3:15)
We believe “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God”; therefore, all Scripture in the original manuscripts are inerrant in that it conveys exactly what God wants us to know and is complete in it’s present form. Holy men of God, being moved by the Holy Spirit, wrote every word of Scripture, and it is divinely and uniquely inspired, being absolutely trustworthy in all matters of faith and conduct. The Scripture should be read and understood which will lead us to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and will provide the born again believer solid, practical instruction.
(Psalms 19:1-3: Matthew 5:18; Mark 12:26; Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:39; Acts 1:16, Acts 17:2-3, 18:28, 26:22-23, 28:23; Romans 15:4, 1:19-20)
A public demonstration of your belief that Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection has made it possible for you to be forgiven of all your sins and reconnected to God. Baptism is for believers and is by immersion.
