We believe and teach that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God.  We accept the Bible as our guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine.

We believe and teach that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.  We teach that the Godhead is everlasting, of infinite power, wisdom and goodness; the Maker and Preserver of all things.

We believe and teach the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ:  His virgin birth, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and the blessed hope of His visible future return to this earth to receive to Himself His blood-bought church that it may be with Him forever, the Maker and Preserver of all things.

We believe and teach that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.

We believe and teach that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.

We believe and teach that the baptism in water is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only.  Water baptism symbolizes the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.

We believe and teach that the baptism with the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 1:8 and Acts 2:4, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, is given to believers who ask for it.

We believe and teach that when Jesus comes, the dead in Christ shall rise to meet Him; then those believers who are physically still alive shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.

We believe and teach that a believer should partake of the Lord’s Supper to show the Lord’s death until He comes.  The bread symbolizes the Lord’s broken body and the cup symbolizes the new covenant in His blood which provides us with forgiveness and relationship with God.
