What We Believe

How To Get To Heaven

WE BELIEVE - in the verbal and witten inspiration of Gods Holy Word - both the Old and New Testaments. As found in the King James version of the Bible in English.

WE BELIEVE - in one eternal God existing in Three Persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE - in the Deity of Christ; His virgin birth; His blood atonement; His bodily resurrection; His glorious ascension into Heaven and personal, bodily return.

WE BELIEVE - that all men are sinners by nature and the only way for salvation and reconciliation with God is through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE - that the ministry of the church is to win the lost to Christ and build them up in faith and holiness.
