Our Beliefs

What We Believe

  • there is but one living and true God, everlasting, of infinite power, wisdom and goodness; Maker and Preserver of all things, both visible and invisible. And in the unity of this Godhead, there are three Persons of one substance, of eternal being, and equal in holiness, justice, wisdom, power, and dignity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
  • the Son, who is the Word of the Father, the very and eternal God, of one substance with the Father, took man's nature in the womb of the Blessed Virgin; so that two whole and perfect natures, that is to say, the Godhead and manhood, were joined together in one person, never to be divided, whereof is one Christ, very God and perfect man, who actually suffered, was crucified, dead, and buried, to reconcile the Father to us, and to make atonement, not only for our actual guilt, but also for original sin.
  • that Christ did truly rise again from the dead, and took again His body, with all things appertaining to the perfections of man's nature, and ascended into heaven and there sitteth until He shall return to judge all men at the last day.
  • the Holy Ghost proceeding from the Father and the Son is of one substance, majesty and glory, with the Father and the Son, very and eternal God.
  • in the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, known as the Bible, composed of sixty-six books and divided into two departments, Old and New Testaments. We believe the Bible is the Word of God, the full and complete revelation of the plan and history of redemption.
  • that eternal life with God in heaven is a portion of the reward of the finally righteous; and that everlasting banishment from the presence of the Lord, and unending torture in hell, the wages of the persistently wicked. (Matthew 25: 46; Psalm 9: 17; Revelation 21: 7, 8)
  • that Jesus Christ shed His blood for the remission of sins that are past; and for the regeneration of penitent sinners, and for salvation from sin and from sinning. (Romans 3: 26; 1 John 3: 5 - 10; Ephesians 2: 1 - 10)
  • teach and firmly maintain the scriptural doctrine of justification by faith alone. (Romans 5: 1)
  • that Jesus Christ shed His blood for the complete cleansing of the justified believer from all indwelling sin and from its pollution, subsequent to regeneration. (1 John 1: 7 - 9)
  • that entire sanctification is an instantaneous, definite second work of grace, obtainable by faith on the part of the fully justified believer. (John 15: 2; Acts 26: 18)
  • that the Pentecostal baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire is obtainable by a definite act of appropriating faith on the part of the fully cleansed believer, and the initial evidence of the reception of this experience is speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. (Luke 11: 13; Acts 1: 5; 2: 1 - 4; 8: 17; 10: 44 - 46; 19: 6)
  • in divine healing as in the atonement. (Isaiah 53: 4, 5; Matthew 8: 16, 17; Mark 16: 14 - 18; James 5: 14 - 16; Exodus 15: 26)

  • in the imminent, personal, premillennial, second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thess. 4: 15 - 18; Titus 2: 13; 2 Peter 3: 1 - 4; Matthew 24: 29 - 44) and we love and wait for His appearing.
    (2 Timothy 4: 8)
  • it is the responsibility of every believer to dedicate his life to carry out the work of the Great Commission. (Matthew 28: 18 - 20; Mark 16: 15 - 20; Acts 1: 8)
  • that marriage constitutes a bond of life-time commitment between one man and one woman and that it is the only legitimate, honourable and holy estate instituted by God. It was ordained of God as the foundation and bond of family life for the mutual help and comfort of husband and wife, and for the welfare of the state. (Genesis 2: 24, 25; Proverbs 18: 22; Hebrews 13: 4; 1 Corinthians 7: 10, 11; 1 Corinthians 6: 9, 10; Romans 1: 24 - 32)
