What We Believe


We believe in One God who is Triune in being revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, and that He truly arose from the dead and rose from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is there interceding for us.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit. That He is always with us and active in our lives. Convincing the world of sin, regenerating those who repent and believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus.


We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God inerrantly revealing the will of God concerning us in all things necessary to our salvation.


We believe that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Sin is a voluntary violation of a known law of God, and it is also corrupted our nature from the original righteousness that God intended for us at the beginning of the world.


We believe that Jesus Christ, by His sufferings, by the shedding of His own blood, and by His death on the Cross, made a full atonement for all human sin, His sacrifice alone is the full payment for sin.

We believe that all people can choose to believe in Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins and become a child of God.

Sanctification (Baptism of the Holy Spirit)

We believe that entire sanctification is that act of God, after we become a child of God, by which believers are made free from our nature of sin, and brought into a state of entire devotement to God, and the holy obedience of love made perfect.

It is wrought by the baptism with or infilling of the Holy Spirit, and comprehends in one experience the cleansing of the heart from sin and the abiding, indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, empowering the believer for life and service. Entire sanctification is provided by the blood of Jesus, is wrought instantaneously by grace through faith, preceded by entire consecration; and to this work and state of grace the Holy Spirit bears witness.

This experience is also known by various terms representing its different phases, such as “Christian perfection,” “perfect love,” “heart unity,” “the baptism with or infilling of the Holy Spirit,” “the fullness of the blessing,” and “Christian holiness.”

The Church

We believe in the Church, the community that confesses Jesus Christ as Lord, the covenant people of God made new in Christ, the Body of Christ called together by the Holy Spirit through the Word.

God calls the Church to express its life in the unity and fellowship of the Spirit; in worship through the preaching of the Word, observance of the sacraments, and ministry in His name; by obedience to Christ, holy living, and mutual accountability.

The mission of the Church in the world is to share in the redemptive and reconciling ministry of Christ in the power of the Spirit.

The Church is a historical reality that organizes itself in culturally conditioned forms, exists both as local congregations and as a universal body, and also sets apart persons called of God for specific ministries.


We believe Baptism is a means of grace proclaiming faith in Jesus Christ as Savior.

The Lord’s Supper

We believe that the Communion Supper instituted by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a sacrament, proclaiming His life, sufferings, sacrificial death, resurrection, and the hope of His coming again. Those who have faith in Christ and love for the saints are invited by Christ to participate as often as possible. You don't have to be a member of the Church.

Divine Healing

We believe in the biblical doctrine of divine healing and urge our people to offer the prayer of faith for the healing of the sick. We also believe God heals through the means of medical science.

Second Coming of Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will come again; that we who are alive at His coming shall not precede them that are asleep in Christ Jesus; but that, if we are abiding in Him, we shall be caught up with the risen saints to meet the Lord in the air, so that we shall ever be with the Lord.

Resurrection, Judgment, and Destiny

We believe in the resurrection of the dead, that the bodies both of the just and of the unjust shall be raised to life and united with their spirits—“they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.”
