We believe that God concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer, and saves from sin and death all those who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (John 3:16)
We believe in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son who was conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, his substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth. (Isaiah 7:14)
We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. (Acts 1:8)
We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. (John 6:13)
We believe in the filling of the Holy Spirit, which can and should happen continually in the life of a believer. (Acts 4:31)

We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, which is His personal, visible return to earth and the establishment of His millennial kingdom. (Matthew 16:27)
