What We Believe
GOD: We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.

CHRIST: We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing in prayer.

SALVATION: We believe that the regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

THE BIBLE: We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God and the supreme authority in matters of faith and conduct. 

THE HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for it.

SANCTIFICATION We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in this present world.

SIN: We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
