Statement Of Faith

WE BELIEVE: The Bible to be the Word of God: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.”  “All scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for instruction in righteousness.”  “For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword.” (St. John 1:1, II Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12)

In One God: “The Lord our God is one Lord.”  “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost: and these are one.” (St. Mark 12:29, I John 5:7)

In Jesus Christ: “But these are written, that ye might believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that believing ye might have life through His name.”  “And he hath on His vesture and on His thigh and name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”  “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures: and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day.”  “Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God: angels and authorities and powers being made subject to Him.” (St. John 20:31, Revelation 19:16, I Corinthians 14:3-4, I Peter 3:22)

Baptism of the Holy Spirit: “For John truly baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.”  “Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.  And they all were filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”  “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me.” (Acts 1:5, Acts 8:17, Acts 1:8)

The Church is the Body of Christ: “Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.”  “For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members of another.” (I Corinthians 12:28, Romans 12:4–5)

Christ Will Return/The Resurrection of the Dead: “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together to meet with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord.”  (I Thessalonians 4:16–17)

Final Judgment: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in His body, according to that which he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”  (II Corinthians 5:10)

Man is a Three Part Being:  “The very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (I Thessalonians 5:23)
