THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
We believe the Holy Scriptures consisting of the Sixty-Six Books of the Old and New Testament to be the Verbally and Plenary Inspired Word of God. His only special Revelation to Man; the Final Authority for Faith and Life, Inerrant, in the original writings, Infallible and God-Breathed. (John 16:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 2:19-21; Psalms 119:89; Isaiah 4:8; and Matthew 5:18)
THE TRUE GOD
THE TRINITY: We believe there is One and Only One Living and True God, Eternally Existing in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! Co-Eternal In Being, Co-Identical in Nature, Co-Equal in Power and Glory, Co-Equal in Every Divine Person, and Executing Distinct, but Harmonious Offices; in the Great Work of Redemption. Among the attributes of the True God, He is Infinite, Immutable, All-Powerful (Omnipotent), All-Knowing (Omniscience), Everywhere Present (Omnipresent), and Inexpressibly Glorious in Holiness. He is Worthy of All Possible Honor, Confidence and Love.

2. GOD THE SON.
a. We Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Eternal Son of God became Man, without Ceasing to be God. Having been conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God the Father and Redeem Sinful Men. (John 1:1-2, 14; Luke 1:26-35)
b. We Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our eternal redemption through the shedding of His blood in death on the Cross as Our Representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that Our Justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Romans 3:24-25; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Corinthians 15-3-4)

3. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.
a. We Believe that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, Equal with God the Father, and God the Son, and one of the same natures who convicts the World of Sin, Righteousness, and Judgment. That He is the Supernatural Agent in the Regenerations who baptizes All Believers into the Body of Christ and Indwells and Seals them unto the Day of Redemption. (John 16:8-11; 2 Corinthians 3:6, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14.
b. We Believe that He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth, and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit and with evidence of speaking in tongues. (John 16:13; 1 John 2:20,27; Ephesians 5:18; 1 Corinthians 14:2; 14, 17, 18; Jude 1:20).

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus (Acts 3:19, Luke 24:47; Ephesians 1:7).
We believe regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God is essential for personal salvation (Titus 2:5, John 3:3-5, Ephesians 5:25-27).

We believe that when an individual receives the Holy Ghost, he receives divine enablement for Christian service and witness. (Acts 1: 8; 2:4; 3:1 -26; 4:5 – 12).
We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Ghost. (Romans 15: 16; 1 Corinthians 6:11).
We believe in the final resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the former to eternal life and the latter to eternal judgement. (Revelations 20: 11 -15; 1 Corinthians 15: 12 – 23)
