There is one true and living God, who is perfect, existing eternally in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.
These three are one.........

Jesus is the true GOD and true man.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He died upon the cross, for the just and the unjust, as a sacrifice for all mankind, and all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of HIS blood shed.  Jesus arose from the dead on the third day; he is now sitting at the right hand of GOD our Majesty on high, as our High Priest.  He will come again to establish HIS kingdom of
righteousness and peace

The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to dwell within all who believe in HIM, to guide, teach, and empower the believer, and to teach the world of sin, or righteousness, and of judgment.

The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of HIS will for the salvation of mankind.  They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God; man fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death.  All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The destiny of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment, but that of the believer is everlasting joy and salvation.

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; those who repent and believe in HIM are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the
gift of eternal
life, and become the children of GOD.

It is the will of GOD that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, thereby being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, receiving power for holy living and effective service.  This is both a crisis and progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body.  Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil
  as taught in the scriptures are privileges for the Church in this present age.

The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and they are redeemed through His blood, and are
born again of the Holy Spirit.

Christ is the Head of the body, the CHURCH, whose members have been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as witnesses, preaching the Gospel to all nations.

The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, and the proclamation of the Gospel, and for observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life, for the latter, a resurrection unto judgement.

The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and premillennial.

As the believer's blessed hope, this vital truth is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.

Looking forward towards Jesus Christ the author and finisher of our
FAITH.

THE ARTICLES OF FAITH

We believe in GOD, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost.

We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression.

We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.

We believe that a man must be called of GOD, by prophecy and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority , to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

We believe the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are; first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentence; third, Baptism by immersion for the remissions of sins, fourth; Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.

We believe the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretaion of tongues, and so forth.

We believe the Bible to be the WORD of GOD as far as it is translated correctly.

We believe all that GOD has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (New Jerusalem) will be built . That Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory

We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the laws of GOD in the realm of the Spirit.

We believe  that each individual has the privelege of worshipping Jehovah according to the dictates of their own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, but when the spirit of truth is come, he will lead you unto all righteouness.

We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things.  If there is anything virtutous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

We believe in giving GOD the highest Praise, for all the
Glory and Honor is due to the KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS
