We believe:
  • That Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God and the only Savior from sin.
  • That Jesus Christ is the Great Physician and the Healer of the body and soul through the blood atonement.
  • That Jesus Christ is the baptizer with the Holy Ghost today, just as He was on the Day of Pentecost.
  • That Jesus Christ is the soon-coming King, coming back to the earth again as the only hope for our dying world.
  • That Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Primary Experiences of the Christian Life:
There are three primary experiences of the Christian life: Salvation, Water baptism, and the Holy Spirit Baptism.

Salvation
  • Salvation is initiated by a prayer of faith in Jesus.
  • Salvation is completed by God's grace.
  • Salvation is maintained by a lifestyle of Biblical righteousness.
  • Salvation is demonstrated by works.
  • Salvation is lost when we sin and do not repent.
  • Salvation is necessary to enter Heaven in eternity.

Water Baptism
  • Baptism was exemplified by Christ.
  • Water Baptism is not necessary to be saved, but is definitely an important Christian experience not to be negated.
  • Water Baptism is a public demonstration of faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Water Baptism is executed in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

Holy Ghost Baptism
  • Holy Spirit Baptism is evidenced by speaking in tongues.
  • Holy Spirit Baptism is an experience different and distinct from Salvation or Water Baptism.

Primary responsibilities for each Christian:
There are four primary responsibilities of each Christian: Prayer, Outreach, Reading the Bible, and Fellowship.

  • Daily Prayer - Seeking God in prayer is a fundamental necessity of maintaining our relationship with Him.
  • Outreach - Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others.
  • Reading the Bible - Feeding our spirit with the Word of God, and living thereby.
  • Fellowship - Gathering together in a local assembly of believers for worship and admonition, and spiritually enriching camaraderie with other believers.
