WHAT WE BELIEVE (STATEMENT OF FAITH)
We believe in one God Father, Son and Holy Spirit, creator of all things.We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary , was crucified, died, was buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the father and is true God and true man We believe the bible in its entirety to be the inspired word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct. We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the eternal happiness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost. We believe in personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe in sanctification through the word of God and by the Holy Spirit and we believe in personal holiness, purity of the heart and life.We believe in Divine healing, through faith in the name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in the redemption. We believe in water baptism , in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the new birth, in speaking with tongues as the spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4), in the gifts of the spirit , and the evidence of the fruit of the spirit. We believe that all of these are available to believers. We believe in the Christians hope, the sooncoming , return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
As we raise men and women who are inspired by the Holy Spirit and filled with the knowledge of the glory of God, they will influence their homes, communities and environs with the knowledge of the glory of God as waters cover the sea.
