These are the foundational principles and core beliefs that define us as a family.

We believe in the absolute verbal inspiration of the accepted canon of the Scriptures as originally given and that they are infallibly and uniquely authoritative and free from error of any sort in all matters with which they deal, including scientific and historical as well as moral and theological areas (I Timothy 3:16; I Corinthians 2:13).


We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14).


We believe in the creation, test, and fall of man as recorded in Genesis; man’s total spiritual depravity and sinfulness and his inability to attain to divine righteousness (Romans 3:10-18; 5:12).


We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, completely God and completely man (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14; 9:6).


We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples after His resurrection (I Cor. 15:1-4; Acts 1:3; Romans 4:25).


We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation and personal, literal and bodily coming again the second time for the Church (John 14:2-3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18).


We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Christ by which we obtain remission of sins through His shed blood (Ephesians 2:8-9; Colossians 1:13-14; Hebrews 9:12; Romans 5:11).


We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, the Lord Jesus Christ, in order to fulfill the command of Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:34-39; 19:1-6).


We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in tongues, as an experience subsequent to salvation (Acts 2:1-4; 2:37-38; 8:14-17; 10:44-46; 19:6; Galatians 3:14-15).


We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in I Corinthians 12-14 and Romans 12, and as manifested in the Early Church (I Cor. 12-14; Romans 12:6-8).


We believe in the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world and a lifestyle of perfecting holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian faith (Ephesians 5:18; II Corinthians 6: 14; 7:1).


We believe in divine healing, the healing of the body by divine power, as practiced in the Early Church (Acts 4:30; Romans 8: 11; I Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14).


We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper and that it provides life, health and strength for all believers (I Corinthians 11:23-30).


We believe in a literal heaven and hell, in eternal life for believers (John 5:24; 3:16) and eternal punishment for unbelievers (Mark 9:43-48; II Thessalonians. 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15).


We believe in the reality of Satan and demonic powers and in the ultimate eternal judgment of the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10-15).
