01Statement of Faith
We believe in the three natures of God as God our creator, Jesus being God in the flesh, (John 1:14) the one and only sacrifice for sin, and the Holy Spirit being the Spirit of God. The Spirit of power spoken of at Pentecost. That God is spirit and that Jesus is God in the flesh. 1 Timothy 3:16; John 1:1; Acts 2:2-4; John 14:9.
Jesus is the Divine, Holy, sinless, Son of God, (Emmanuel, being God with us) Matt 1:18; Matt 1:23.
The Bible is the infallible Word of God, Complete and without error, given to man though the Holy Spirit. 2 Tim 3:16.
That there are good and evil angelic beings, the good being the messengers or angels of God, sent to minister to the saints. And the evil spirits (demons) sent to kill, steal and destroy man. John 10:10; 1 Pet 5:8.
I believe in the existence of Satan, the chief evil spirit or being. Romans 16:20; Genesis 14:12-14; Luke 10:18.
I believe Jesus died to atone for all men's sins but only those who turn from sin and trust totally in Jesus will be saved, and that you cannot loose your salvation if you totally trust in Jesus and serve Him. John 1:4; John 1:9; John 8:12; Rom 5:11.
I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture of the church and a thousand year reign with the redeemed ruling and reigning with Jesus and after this a new heaven and earth for eternity. 1 Thess 4:7; 1 Thess 5:9.
I believe a Christian can have demons but can only be oppressed, but they cannot be POSSESSED because the Holy Spirit is within the spirit of the believer. I also believe that only a Christian can be delivered from demons as an unsaved person does not have the ability to hold their deliverance because of the absence of the Holy Spirit within them.
I believe that our God gives each of us gifts, and of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:4-11: Ephesians 1:13-14.
I believe we are saved by grace and faith in Jesus Christ who died and shed His blood for us. Acts 15:11 That Christ is the only way back to the Father. Thru His blood and His blood alone are we set free from sin and death. Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14; Col. 1:20; Hebrews 9:12; Hebrews 13:12.
I believe that the Bible teaches us that there is a literal heaven and hell. Rev 1:18; Matt 5:22; Matt 10:28; Luke 16:23; Luke 18:22; Luke 22:43; John 6:38.
I believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in true believers, that He fills and empowers us for service. Acts 1:8.
