OUR BELIEFS

We are confident there is one true and living God, the Creator of all things, All knowing, Eternal Love, the Redeemer of mankind.  He has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.  St. John 1:1-1 4.

The Trinity: We may scripturally speak of the God of heaven as a trinity, though He is One Lord.  God has revealed himself in three distinct personal attributes and yet absolutely unified into One.  St. John 1:1-1 4.

The Deity of The Lord Jesus Christ: The Word of God explicitly declares:
His virgin birth – Matt. 1:23
His sinless life – Heb. 7:26
His substitutionary sacrifice on the cross – 1 Cor. 15:3
His bodily resurrection from the dead – Matt. 28:6, 1 Cor. 15:4
His place at the right hand of God – Acts 2:33

The Baptism With the Holy Ghost: This being the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church, should be experienced by all in the body of Christ today.  With the baptism of the Holy Spirit comes a deeper reverence of God, an overflowing fullness of the Spirit, enduement of power for life and service; a greater love for the mighty things of God.  1 Cor. 12:1-31, Acts 2:43, Acts 8:12-17, Acts 2:42, John 7:37-39.

Speaking with Other Tongues: The physical sign of speaking with other tongues is the evidence of the baptism of believers with the Holy Ghost.  This tongues is the same as the gift of tongues, however, different in purpose and in use.  Acts 2:4, 1 Cor. 12:4-10 and 28.
