We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide who lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved.
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, and the supreme sorce of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
We believe that mankind is a specail creation of God, made in His image, but that through salvation the sin of the first man Adam, mankind fell so that all people are sinners and need salvation. We believe that salvation is a free gift from God received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his/her life by faith. We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by self-effort of the Christian. We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgivin through Christ spend eternity in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence. We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.
