Our Beliefs - Marriage & Family
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
The Bible teaches that God ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. The family unit is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption (or connected through guardianship). Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a lifetime marital covenant. A husband is to love his wife as Christ loves the Church. He has the God-given responsibili...  Read More

Our Beliefs - Healing
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
It is God’s will to heal the sick through various means – including, but not limited to, the laying on of hands, the prayer of faith, anointing with oil, and the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, healing is provided in the redemptive work of Christ and is available to every believer everywhere. (See Mark 16:18; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:17; Isaiah 53:4-5.)...  Read More

Our Beliefs - Resurrection
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the Cross. We believe in the return of the resurrected Christ for His saints, both those alive on the earth and those preceding them in death. Both the saved and the lost will ultimately be resurrected – those who are saved to the resurrection of life and those who are lost to eternal damnation ...  Read More

Our Beliefs - Communion
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
The Scriptures established Communion as an ordinance to be celebrated until Jesus comes. The Lord’s Supper consists of the elements – bread and the fruit of the vine – which represent the broken body and shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and serve as symbols that remind us of our unbroken covenant with Him. In addition, healing and restoration are released as believers receive the Communion elem...  Read More

Our Beliefs - Water Baptism
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
Scripture commands all who repent and who receive Jesus Christ as Lord to be water-baptized. In this act, Christians declare to the world that they have died with Christ and have been raised with Him to walk in the newness of life. Water baptism is not a requirement for salvation, but it is a required part of embarking on a life of obedience for every Christian. (See Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Col...  Read More

Our Beliefs - Salvation
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
Man’s only hope of salvation is through the blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. Salvation is received through repentance by acknowledging Jesus as Lord and placing one’s faith in Christ’s redemptive work alone. There is salvation in no other name...  Read More

Our Beliefs - Man, His Fall & His Redemption
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God. But through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. Man thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death and all of its ramifications. Man’s willful transgression brought about separation from God and put the entire human race in need of redemption. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo t...  Read More

Our Beliefs - God the Son
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
Christ is the eternal Son of God. Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the Cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was physically raised from the dead on the third day and ascended into Heaven, where He is seated at the Father’s right hand as the He...  Read More
