(Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13-14)
We believe in the creation, test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness.
The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man.
(Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14/9:16)

(John 14:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

(Acts 2:1-4/8:14-17/10:44-46; Galatians 3:14-15)
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the healing of the body by Divine Power and Divine healing in its varied aspects as enumerated in scripture.
(Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:1)
We believe The Church is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ and should have its expression through local, organized, structured congregations of people fully devoted to God, one another, personal transformation, and diligent in the work of ministry.
We believe in the reality and personality of Satan as one who opposes God’s eternal purposes and God’s children, as one whose power should be acknowledged, but as one whose defeat is already accomplished through Jesus.
(Matthew 25:41; Matthew 10:28; 1 John 4:4)

(2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21 & 22)
