Organizational Statement of Faith: 

1. We belief the Bible to be the inspired, infallible and authoritative word of God.
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death on the cross through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory.
4. We believe that for the salvation of the lost, sinful men and women, regeneration in the Holy Spirit, is absolutely essential.
5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. They that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life with God, and those that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation without God.
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
