What We Believe
The Holy Bible - is the inspired, infallible Word of God. It contains the keys to inheriting eternal life, and it reveals the mystery of our faith.

God - There is One God who has revealed himself to the World as Father (Creator), Son (Savior) & Holy Ghost (Indwelling Spirit). We believe that Jesus is God, for in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form. We proclaim Lord Jesus Christ is the name of God that was given to this generation as the only Name whereby the people of this Grace dispensation of time can be saved.

Sin - is transgression of the law or commandment of God.

Salvation - We accept God's plan of salvation consisting of repentance,water baptism (immersed in water) with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance.

We believe that water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ is essential for forgiveness of sins, and confirms our belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
