“… and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. ” Acts 2:38

The Church:

We believe the Church is a living, spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and which all regenerated people in this age are a part. We believe that the Church is distinct from Israel.

A local church is an company of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, associated for worship, fellowship, and service. The local church is autonomous.

We believe the primary purpose of the local church is to bring glory to God by evangelizing the world and edifying believers.

4. Holy Spirit:

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third member of the Godhead and possesses the same nature, attributes, and perfections as the other members of the Trinity. We believe that God the Holy Spirit calls, regenerates, baptizes, indwells fills, empowers, and seals the believer until the day of redemption.

5. Creation:

We believe in the biblical account of creation that the heavens and the earth were created out of nothing by the direct act of the Triune God in six literal twenty-four-hour days. We believe that God exists independent of His creation and yet sustains, cares for, and watches over all He has created.

6. Man:

We believe that man was created in God's image by the direct act of God. Having been created in a state of holiness and righteousness, Adam willfully sinned against God and fell from that state. The consequence of the fall is that all men are totally depraved sinners both by nature and by choice.

Fallen man is devoid of the ability to do good and to please God. Man, therefore, apart from the grace of God, is already under the condemnation of God and will be consigned forever to eternal conscious punishment.
