Plan of Salvation
We are a Bible-based church, meaning that we seek to base all of our beliefs and our lifestyle on explicit passages of the Bible and on Biblical principles. The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (II Timothy 3:15-17).
The basic and fundamental doctrine of our church is the Bible standard of full salvation which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the infilling of the gift of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (Acts 2:38).
The Oneness of God
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man (Deuteronomy 6:4, Ephesians 4:4-6, Colossians 2:9, I Timothy 3:16).
