Church Office Hours

Tuesday thru Friday  

9:00 AM  - 3:00 PM

We believe in the physical, bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe His coming is imminent. When He comes, the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds (what we refer to as the “rapture”), to meet the lord in the air.  Following the tribulation, He shall return to the Earth as King of kings, and Lord of lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years.

(Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17;  Revelation 20:6)

What type of church are we? The Scriptures

The bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy Men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct doctrines.   (2 Timothy 3:16,1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21)

Our God is one, but manifested in three persons – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, being co-equal. God the Father is greater than all, the sender of the Word (logos), and the Begetter.  The Son is the Word, flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning. The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son, and is eternal.  (Philippians 2:6;  John 14:28;  16:28; 1:14; 1:1; 1:18; 15:26)

The Godhead

Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God. Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God

(Romans:14, 3:10, 3:23, 1 John. 3:8, Ephesians 2:8)

Man’s Fall and Redemption Eternal Life and the New Birth

Man’s first step toward salvation is Godly sorrow that works repentance.  The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, it produces life.     (2 Corinthians 7:10, 1 John 5:12, John 3:3-5)

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received by faith subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance.    

(Matthew. 3:11, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, 2:4, 38, 19:1-7)

Baptism in the Holy Spirit Water Baptism

Baptism in water, by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.   (Matthew 28:19;  Romans 6:4;  Colossians. 2:12;  Acts 8:36-39)

Sanctification

The bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation and Christ’s return.

(Hebrews 12:14;  1Thessalonians 5:23;  2 Peter 3:18;  2 Corinthians 3:18;  Philemon 3:12-14;  1 Corinthians 1:30)

Divine Healing

Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and/or by the laying on of hands and/or by the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the church today.

(Mark 16:18, James 5:14-25, 1 Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:17, Isaiah 53:4-5)

Church Ordinances

All who receive Jesus as Lord and Savior shall be baptized in water as a sign of salvation, making known outwardly what has taken place spiritually. They have died with Christ to sin and sickness, and have been raised with Him to a new Life.
