WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that all the words of Scripture, as originally given, were inspired by God. (2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Cor. 2:13).
We believe that God has revealed Himself as One God existing in three persons–Father, Son and Holy Spirit--distinguishable but indivisible (Mat. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).
We believe in the creation and the test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis, which led to man's total depravity and inability to attain to righteousness on his own (Rom. 5:12; Rom. 5:18).
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles and healings, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins (Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 9:12; Heb. 9:22; Rom. 5:11).
We believe in water baptism for the believer in order to fulfill the command of Christ (Mat. 28:19; Acts 2:37-41;Gal. 3:14).
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation as is given to all believers who in faith ask for it (Acts 2:1-4; Acts 8:14-17, Acts 10:44-46; Gal. 3:14).
We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as manifested in the early church (1 Cor 12-14).
We believe in Eternal Life for the believer (John 5:24; John 3:16) and Eternal punishment for the unbeliever (Mark 9:43-50; 2 Thes. 1:9).
WHAT DOES GOD'S WORD SAY ABOUT HEALING?
"Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord."
- JAMES 5:14
"Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--by whose stripes you were healed."
- I PETER 2:24
"Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed."
