We Believe

Oneness of God: There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16)

Acts 2:38 Salvation: We Believe in the original apostolic plan of salvation, Proclaimed on the Day of the Pentecost on the birthday of the New Testament church, which includes faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, sincere repentance, water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the joyous experience of speaking supernaturally in other tongues-just as the believers did in the first century. (Acts 2:1-39; 10:40-48)

Holiness/ Separation: We Believe in living a life of holiness, both inwardly and outwardly, as a result of the working of God’s grace in us, for the Word of the Lord declares that all who name the name of Christ should depart from sin and separate themselves from the evil practices of this present age. (Ephesians 4:21-24; 2 Timothy 2:19; Hebrews 12:14)
