Who We Are
WE ARE A CHRISTIAN CHURCH.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
1. There is one God, who is infinitely
perfect, existing eternally in three persons:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
2. Jesus Christ is true God and true
man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon
the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in
Him are justified on the ground of His shed
blood. He arose from the dead according
to the Scriptures. He is now at the right
hand of the Majesty on high as our great
High Priest. He will come again to establish
His kingdom of righteousness and peace.
3. The Holy Spirit is a divine person,
sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the
believer, and convince the world of sin, of
righteousness, and of judgment.

should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be
sanctified wholly, being separated from sin
and the world and fully dedicated to the
will of God, thereby receiving power for
holy living and effective service. This is
both a crisis and a progressive experience
wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.
8. Provision is made in the redemptive
work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick
and anointing with oil are taught in the
Scriptures and are privileges for the
Church in this present age.
9. The Church consists of all those who
believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are re-
deemed through His blood, and are born
again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head
of the Body, the Church, which has been
commissioned by Him to go into all the
world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to
The local church is a body of believers in

of the just and of the unjust; for the former,
a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.

Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and premillennial. This is the
believer's blessed hope and is a vital truth
