Our Beliefs

In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.

Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.

In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints' feet.

That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost. Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.

In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

In the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.
