The Bible
Both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man; and they are the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (Mat. 4:4, I Thess. 2:13; I Tim. 3:15-17; II Peter 1:21)

The Trinity
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent * *I AM* * the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4l; Is. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22)

The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare the following:
(A) His virgin birth (Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35)
(B) His sinless life (Heb. 7:26; I Peter 2:22)
(C) His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38)
(D) His substitutionary work on the cross (I Cor. 15:3; II Cor. 5:21)
(E) His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matt. 28:6; Luke 24:39; I Cor. 15:4)
(F) His exaltation to the right had of God (Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Phil. 2:9-11; Heb 1:1-3)

The Fall of Man
Man was created good and upright, for God said, *Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.* However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God (Gen. 1:26,27; 2:17; 3:6; Rom. 5:12-19) The means of righteousness imputed only comes by faith in the Great atonement. (Rom.6:3-14; 8:1-2, 11)

The Salvation of Man
Man*s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Rom. 10:13-15; Eph. 2:8; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7)

The Evidences of Salvation
The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. (Eph. 4:24; Titus 2:12)

The Ordinances of the Church

Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47,48; Rom. 6:4)

Holy Communion
The Lord*s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (II Peter 1:4) It is a memorial of His suffering and death (I Cor. 11:26) and a prophecy of His second coming (I Cor. 11:26) and it is enjoined on all believers *TILL HE COMES!*

The Baptism with the Holy Spirit
The Baptism with The Holy Spirit is a definite work of grace, according to Acts 2:4, it is given to (not some but all) Believers who ask for it. (Acts 2:4;10:44-46;19:1-7) The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance (Acts 2:4).

We believe in the Progressive Sanctifying Power of the Holy Spirit by those who keep their faith in Christ and the Cross. (Rom.6:3-14; 8:1-2, 11) Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil and of dedication unto God (Rom 12:1, 2; I Thess. 5:23; Heb. 13:12). The Scriptures teach a life of *Holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord* (Heb. 12:14). By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: *Be ye holy; for I am holy* (I Peter 1:15-16)Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit ( Gal. 2:20; Phil. 2:12, 13; I Peter 1:5)

The Church
The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of *the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven* (Heb 12:23; also see Eph. 1:22, 23; 2:22)

Divine Healing
The Redemptive Work of Christ on the Cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer. (Ex.15:25-26; James 5:14-15; I Pet.2:24)

The Rapture
We believe in the Rapture of the Church. (I Thess.4:13-18)

The Resurrection
In the Resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to Everlasting Life and the other to everlasting damnation. (Rev.20:5-6,11-15)

The Final Judgment
There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels and the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in *the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death* (Rev. 21:8 also see Matt. 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Rev. 19:20; 20:11-15).

The New Heavens and the New Earth
*We, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness* (II Pet. 3:13; also see Rev. 21 & 22).

The sanctity of marriage is between one man and one woman as taught in scripture. No exceptions. Genesis 1:27, Gen 2:21-25, Matthew 19:5-7
