Beliefs

The Bible
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. There is no salvation outside of what is taught in its pages.


The Godhead
This is the state of being God. The Godhead is revealed in Jesus Christ. (Colossians 2: 8-10) He is the visible manifestation of God; that is, robed in flesh and blood, hence fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah (Isaiah 9:6). This fleshly expression provided the tabernacle within which the eternal Father resided while reconciling the world unto His self.

Repentance
This is Godly sorrow for sins. One who is repentant acknowledges the wrong he has done and takes steps to changes his actions. Refer to… 2 Corinthians 7: 10 Psalms 34:18

Water Baptism
This is to be administered by the immersion of an individual in water. We believe in baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Refer to… (Acts 2: 38, Acts 10: 37-48, Colossians 3:27, Galatians 3:27, Romans 6: 3-5)

Holy Spirit Baptism
This is an experience by which God's Spirit comes to dwell in the heart of the believer. This was first demonstrated on the day of Pentecost, thus fulfilling the prophecy of Joel (See Joel 2: 28, 29).
Speaking in tongues is the common sign given in the Bible by which persons were identified as having received the gift of the Holy Ghost. Refer to… (Acts 2: 44, Acts 10: 45-47, Acts 19:6).

The Gift of tongues mentioned by Paul in 1 Corinthians 14: 1-40 is given for self-edification and the edification of the church. Not all believers exercise the gift of tongues, which is different in function from the tongues given by God as the initial sign of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

Holy Living
Being holy means to be separated unto God. One must live righteously, Godly and soberly in this present world. Without holy living one cannot see God. Refer to… (Titus 2: 11-12 Hebrews 12:14).

Our bodies, once we accept the Lord Jesus Christ, become the temples of the living God and must be kept holy. (See 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20).

Divine Healing
God has made known through the ages by miraculous healings and has made special provisions in this age of grace to heal all who will come to him in faith and obedience.


Divine healing was purchased by the Blood of Jesus. Refer to.. (Isaiah 53:5 Exodus 15: 26 Psalms 132: 1-3 St. Mark 16:17).

The Institution of the Lord's Supper and the Washing of Feet
At times designated by the pastor, we come together to partake of the Lord's Supper and the washing of each other's feet. This is an example put forward by our Lord Jesus Christ, and implicit in this are fellowship and humility.


We must be ready at all times to partake of the Lord's Supper. Refer to… (1 Corinthians 11: 23-30 St. John 13: 12-14) The bread and wine are symbols of the body and blood of Christ.

The Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the visible return of Christ to earth. This doctrine is clearly set forth in the scriptures. Refer to… (St. Matt. 24:1 Acts 1:11 Philippians 3:20-21 1 Thessalonians 4: 14-17 Titus 2: 13-14).
