Tenets of Faith
This church receives the New Testament as an all-sufficient basis of doctrine and practice. As a summary of the principles for Christian living among its members, it adopts the following covenant.
We Believe …
…In one God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things.
Dt. 6:4, Gen. 1:1-2, Mt. 3:16-17, Mt. 28:19, John 1:1-3
…In the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection,
and soon return.
…The Bible in its entirety, to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct.
2 Tim. 3:16-17
…That anyone who will, can receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior according to Romans 10:9-17
and become a born again child of God.
…That The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ not only paid for our sins but also obtained
healing for our bodies and mental peace for our souls. Is. 53:3-5, Mt. 8:17, 1 Peter 2:24
…That water baptism by immersion though not required for salvation, was commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ and therefore must be sought by all believers. Mt. 28:19
…That the filling of the Holy Spirit is an additional gift every believer should request and receive.
Luke 11:1, Acts 1:8, 2:38-39, 19
…That every believer, as a member of the body of Christ, has a function and therefore must
be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only. 1 Cor. 12:12-27, James 1:22
…In balancing (rightly dividing) the word of truth without compromising it.
2 Tim. 2:15, Dt. 6:32-33
EQUIPPING THE BODY OF CHRIST
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in
righteousness that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
– 2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe the primary purpose of the church is to equip the Body of Christ for every good work.
This is accomplished through the faithful teaching of the Word of God and believers ministering one to another.
The believer, strengthened by the Word of God, fellowship, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit,
affects individuals, community, nation, and world for the Kingdom of God.
