What We Believe
THE BIBLE: We believe that the whole and literal Bible (i.e. the Old and New Testaments excluding the Apocrypha), is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all sufficient rule for faith and practice. We believe that the Word of God does not stand alone but that it synonymous with the work of Holy Spirit, i.e. we are a Word & Spirit church.
2 Tim. 3:15-16, 2 Peter 1:21, Eph. 6:10

THE VIRGIN BIRTH & BODILY RETURN: We believe Jesus was born of a virgin, as portrayed by his sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension and abiding intercession. We believe in his personal, visible, bodily return in power and glory as the blessed hope of all believers.

John 3:5-6, James 1:18, 1 Pet. 1:23, 1 John 5:1

Matt. 28:19, Acts 10:47-48, Acts 2:38-39

ONLY ONE WAY: We believe that Jesus is the singular way to know fellowship with God Almighty. Our faith is not to be combined with or tainted by the precepts or principles of any other world religion. To this end we do not endorse, encourage or agree with the concepts or teachings of multifaithism.
