What We Believe About:

The Bible

The Bible (KJV) is the inspired, infallible Word of God written by men as they were moved upon by the Holy Ghost; faithfully translated and preserved by God. 
2 Peter 1:21
Psalm 68:11
Jeremiah 36
Mark 13:31
Psalm 119:89
Ecclesiastes 3:14
2 Timothy 3:16

One God

There is but one God, who is known in the Old Testament as Jehovah and in the New Testament as Jesus. Within Jesus, dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead, bodily. We believe in the virgin birth, and that Jesus was the human body that housed the Divine, Everlasting God.
Deuteronomy 6:4
Colossians 2:9
Isaiah 7:14
Matthew 1:23
John 10:30


Jesus was the perfect sacrifice. He rose from the dead and ascended to heaven. His Spirit, which is the Holy Ghost, returned to the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost and is still filling the hearts of those who diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 4:15
John 14:26
Acts 2:4-7
Acts 2:39

The New Birth

As it was then, the new birth today consists of repentance, water baptism by immersion in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and the infilling of the Holy Ghost; evidenced by speaking in unknown tongues as the Spirit of God gives the utterance.

John 3:5
Acts 2:38
Acts 10:44-45
Acts 19:1-6

The Return Of Christ

Jesus will appear at any time to catch away His church; those who have separated themselves unto Him living holy, sanctified lives.
1 Thessalonians 4:15-17

The Way We Worship

God is worthy of our praise both verbal and physical. We are excited about our God, who He is, and what He's done for us. Join us as we celebrate our salvation and praise the Lord.
