Are our beliefs orthodox?  Yes.

       "And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness:
               God was manifested in the flesh,
                   Justified in the Spirit,
               Preached among the Gentiles,
                   Believed on in the world,
               Received up in glory"
(1 Tim. 3:16)

We Believe

  • The Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. We believe it is the standard by which any revelation or guidance, personal or corporate, must be tested.

  • There is one God and Creator who is eternally existent and manifested in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

  • In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His Incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life and atoning death, bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father.

  • That man was created in the image of God, but through Adam’s transgression incurred both physical and spiritual death—separation from the union and communion which God created. A sin nature is now “born of the flesh” and is the human condition without Christ.

  • That the only solution for man’s sin problem is to be “born of the Spirit” by repentance from sin and acceptance by faith of Jesus Christ as both Lord and Savior.  This free gift of eternal life is available to all through a personal faith in Christ and His redemptive work on the cross, bringing justification "once for all" by His blood. Salvation is both present and progressive, as we abide and walk in the light of His presence (1 Jn. 1&2).

  • In the personal return of the Lord, and the resurrection of both the saved to everlasting life and the lost to everlasting punishment, known as the second death.

  • That Jesus Christ is our Savior, Lord, Deliverer, Baptizer and Healer. His life and ministry are available to us today. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (He. 13:8).

  • In one Baptism (Ep. 4:5), consisting in its various aspects as the baptism by the Spirit into Christ and His body (1 Co. 12:13), signified by the water baptism; in the baptism by Christ into the Holy Spirit (Lu. 3:16) according to Acts 2:4; also the baptism of suffering, fire, etc., all of which constitute the doctrine of baptisms (He. 6:2).

  • In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit to make us one flesh, one body, one bread with God Himself. The indwelling presence and supernatural power of the Holy Spirit unites a Christian with the very life of God and enables him to live a holy life (He. 2:11). This covenant relationship is celebrated through the regular church practice of Holy Communion, commonly called “Eucharist,” which, as more than a simple observance, signifies our participation (as Christ’s Body) in the very life of God (1 Co. 10:16-1 7; 2 Pe. 1:4).
