What We Believe (More detailed explanation)

The Scriptures - The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God and that all doctrine, church creeds and traditions taught or practiced by the church, must be in agreement with The Holy Scriptures.


The Godhead - The Godhead is made up of three distinct persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, each distinct in themselves but all one in perfect harmony, purpose and character.


Creation - God created all things and those things created declare God’s omnipotence and omniscience, so that man is without excuse.


Jesus - Jesus came as God in the flesh, lived a perfect and holy life, and died for the sins of all who will believe on Him and walk with Him by faith.


Salvation - We believe in original sin and that all men inherited the sin nature therefore requiring forgiveness through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Therefore there is salvation only in Jesus Christ.


Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit comes and dwells within the heart of those who are saved and when He comes, He will produce righteous living in the Christian’s life.


Water Baptism - Baptism in water is by immersion.


Lord’s Supper - We observe the Lord’s Supper as a remembrance of the Lord Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice and its efficacy for the daily cleansing of the believer’s heart.


Baptism of the Holy Ghost - The baptism of the Holy Spirit as experienced by the early church.


Kingdom - Jesus set up a spiritual kingdom when He came and the believer is heir in that kingdom and is given power over Satan, the powers of darkness and over sin. Jesus is king today and his kingdom is a present reality established in the hearts of every true Christian.


Commandments - We believe in the observance of the Ten Commandments, including the fourth, therefore we are Sabbatarians.


Covenant - The Old Covenant as contained in the Old Testament has been replaced with the New Covenant and that we are not under the requirements of the Mosaic covenant.
