1. We believe that God the Father is perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power. God showed His love for all people by sending His Son to die for our sins so that we might have eternal life with God in heaven.
  2. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, God Himself, and that He became completely man. Conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit. He was born of the virgin Mary. Jesus lived a sinless life, and chose to die as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people. He was bodily resurrected from the dead and appeared to many people.
  3. We believe that the Bible is God’s “word” (communication to us) written by men, but directed and inspired by God through the Holy Spirit (also called the Holy Ghost.
  4. We believe in the personal salvation of believers through the shed of blood of Jesus Christ. We believe that justification is by his grace through faith in our lord’s sacrifice on Calvary, and that no one is justified by simply keeping the law.
  5. We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment. He is received in full when someone gets right with God through Jesus, so all true Christians “have the Holy Spirit.” He is the power that Christians have that enables them to live a Christ-like life (as God leads them). The Holy Spirit is our pledge (or “down-payment”) of eternal life.
  6. We believe that mankind was created in the image of God and given rule over all the earth. Man forfeited everything when he chose to disobey God (in the Garden of Eden) in spite of warnings regarding the consequences for doing so. As a result sorrow, tears, pain, sickness, death, and all that is “not good” came into existence. This was never God’s intention (and therefore not His fault). All of the people who lived since that time have also sinned, for which the penalty is death.
  7. We believe in the Christians hope of the soon –coming, personal return of the lord Jesus Christ.
  8. We believe in helping the needy and people all over the world.
  9. We believe in divine healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that salvation in all ramifications in the redemption.
  10. We believe that it is God’s will for believers to prosper in spirit, soul, and body and in all things.
  11. We believe in the sanctification through the word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness, purity of heart and life.
