Basic Theology

    * We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17).
   * We believe God is Triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2
Corinthians 13:14).

Becoming a Christian

  * We believe that man was created in the image of God, but
that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection
(Romans 5:12).
   * We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us,
signing the pardon of all who believe on Him
(John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
   * We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to
God pleading the righteousness of Christ
(Ephesians 2:8).
   * We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-
hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God
(1 John 1:9).
   * We believe that the change which takes place in the heart
and life at conversion is a very real one
(2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).

Doctrine

   * We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal
the physically sick in answer to the prayer of faith
(James 5:14-16).
   * We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the
Christian; and that we should show spiritual fruit as
evidence of a Spirit-filled life
(1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22).
   * We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue
the believer with power; and that His incoming is after the
same manner as in Bible days
(Acts 2:4).
   * We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of
an inward work (Matt. 28:19). We believe in the
commemoration of the Lord's Supper by the symbolic use
of the bread and juice of the vine
(1 Corinthians 11:24, 25).

Daily Living

  * We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified  
         daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).
   * We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except
          in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).
   * We believe that the experience and daily walk of the
         believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism
(Philippians 4:5).
   * We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit
daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).

The Future

   * We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and
imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
   * We believe that all shall stand some day before the
judgement seat of God, and there receive eternal life or
death (2 Corinthians 5:10).
   * We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-
again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).
   * We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all
         who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15).
