We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative written Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity — God — and coexistent with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the Chief Agent in the Regeneration of the soul, the Chief Convictor of Sin and the Chief Comforter of the Believer. Simultaneous with regeneration, the Holy Spirit baptizes the believer into the body of Christ, permanently indwells him and seals him in salvation for all eternity. The Holy Spirit is the giver of spiritual gifts to the believer. (John 16:1-13; Acts 5:3-4; Titus 3:5; Matthew 3:11; Ephesians 1:13-14; I Corinthians 12:1-11)
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His miracles; His vicarious and atoning death; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His bodily, future return to this earth to rule in power and glory to rule a thousand years (Luke 1:26, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ (Hebrews 9:2).
The New Birth
We believe regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (John 3:7).
We believe in the baptism of water for the remission of sins and of the Holy Spirit, as evidence by speaking in tongues and the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit, is available to believers who ask God for it (I Corinthians 1:14-17, 12:4-11; John 4:2).
We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost. Salvation is wholly of the Lord, apart from the works of man. The Holy Spirit permanently indwells the believer and seals him in salvation for all eternity. Therefore, the believer shall be kept by the power of God through faith(John 3:16, 10:27-29, 14:16-17, 26; Ephesians 1:13; 2:8-9; Philippians 1:6; I Peter 1:5; Jude 24-25; 2 Thessalonians 1-9; Romans 6:23).
