we believe...


  • The Holy Scriptures to be the divinely inbreathed, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God.

  • That there is one God, eternally existent in the Persons of the Holy Trinity.

  • In the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father’s right hand, and His personal coming again at His second advent.

  • In holy living, the present day reality of the baptism in the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord’s supernatural healing of the human body.
