We Believe
The Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament, is the inspired word of God, and is sufficient rule for faith and practice.  The truth set forth in it is held to be essential to a full gospel ministry.  2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost.  Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 14:16-17

The Deith of the Lord Jesus Christ:  
His virgin birth.  Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31-35
His sinless life.  Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22
His miracles.  Acts 2:22; Acts 10:38
His substitutionary work on the cross and His death.  1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; John 19:30
His bodily resurrection from the dead.  Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4
His exalted ascension to the right hand of God.  Acts 1:9-11; Acts 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3

The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus.  Luke 24:45-48; Hebrews 9:11-22

Divine healing is an integral element of the gospel.  Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privelege of all believers.  Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16

The baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for it.  With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.  Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31

The blessed hope:  the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.  1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57

The ordinances of the church:
Baptism in water.  Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47-48
Holy Communion.  2 Peter 1:4; 1 Corinthians 11:26
