Statement of Faith


We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.


We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.


We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.


We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative World of God.


We believe in a God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son & Holy Ghost. 


We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.


We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
