WHAT WE BELIEVE

“The whole Bible rightly divided, and the New Testament
as the only rule for government and discipline.”

We Believe

i

The Bible

In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

1

Jesus

Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

[

The Blood

Justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

:

One God

In one God, eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

;

Sin

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

Sanctification

In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost. Holiness to be God’s standard of living for His people.

Spirit Baptism

In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.

|

Spirit

In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism in the Holy Ghost.

?

Water Baptism

In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Healing

Divine healing is provided for all in the Atonement.

Footwashing

In the Lord’s Supper and washing of the saints’ feet.

>

Second Coming

In the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air.

Christ's Reign

Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years. In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
