Our Beliefs


We believe in the following tenets:

BAPTISM 
By immersion or by submersion (completely). 
It is also viewed as a profession or new birth.

Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:3-4; Galatians 3:27
 

THE CHURCH
The church is a visible congregation, or body of believers of Jesus Christ
wherein the Sacraments are performed according to Christ’s Ordinance
and the Word of God is preached with no exception.

 

FAITH in the HOLY TRINITY
God is of one substance with three distinct personalities
(the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost).

Genesis 1:1-2; John 1:1-3; John 4:24
 

FREE WILL (VOLITION)
God has created us with the power to make decisions on our own.

Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 30: 19, 20; Isaiah 48:18;
Ecclesiastes 9:10; Proverbs 21; Matthew 22:37



GOOD WORKS
Good works cannot wash away our sins nor keep us from God’s judgment.

James 2:14-26
 

HOLY GHOST
The Holy Ghost is the third personality of The Trinity.
It is eternal and in action today.

John 14:15-17; Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:1-4
 

INSPIRED SCRIPTURES
The scriptures, both Old and New Testaments,
are the inspired and infallible revelation of God.
However, man voluntarily transgressed and fell,
thereby of his own nature (offspring of Adam),
inclined to continually do evil. 

Genesis 1:26-27, 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19; I Corinthians 15:22
 

JUSTIFICATION OF MAN
This is our acquittal (freedom) from guilt and condemnation due to our faith.  

Romans 4:1-7
 

LORD’S SUPPER (Eucharist)
This we do on the first Sunday of each month
to commemorate the death of Christ.

Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; Luke 22:19-20; Acts 2:42;
I Corinthians 10:16, 20 & 21; 
I Corinthians 11:24-26



MARRIAGE
Marriage is between a man and a woman and is ordained by God.

Genesis 2:21-24; Leviticus 18:22; Matthew 19:4-6;
Romans 1:26, 27; I Corinthians 7:2-16; Ephesians 5:23-33

 

ORIGINAL SIN
Man was created good, upright and in the image of God. 
However, man voluntarily transgressed and fell. 
Thereby, of his own nature (offspring of Adam),
is inclined to do evil continually. 

Genesis 1:26-27, 2:17, 3:16; Romans 5:12-19; 1 Corinthians 15:22
 

RESURRECTION OF CHRIST
The resurrection is the belief that Christ did, in fact,
rise from the grave on the third day after His crucifixion. 
He now sits on the Right Hand of God, the Father, until His Second Coming. 

1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Corinthians 15:14
 

SACRAMENTS (Ordinances)
There are two recognized kinds of sacrament:
1) Baptism in water, and 2) The Lord’s Supper.

Mark 16:16; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
 

SIN AFTER JUSTIFICATION
This is the belief that after one has received the Holy Ghost, he/she will sin. 
However, not every sin is purposely committed against the Holy Ghost. 
Moreover, it is by the grace of God that we can
be restored again and amend our lives.         

Romans 8:1; Galatians 6:1


SUFFICIENCY OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES FOR SALVATION
The scriptures, both Old and New Testament,
are the inspired and infallible revelation of God 
to man
and the authority of faith and conduct: the Bible is the revealed Will of God,
and the all-sufficient rule of faith and standard for daily living.

2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21


WORD
The Son, who is also known as the Word of the Father,
took on man’s nature while in the womb of a Blessed Virgin.
He is of one substance with the Father. 
Thereby, the God-head and
humanhood were joined together as one flesh, never to be divided.

John 1:1; John 1:14-15; John 10:30; John 14:9
