We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgement, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercising of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit. 

We believe that all men and women are sinners by nature and choice and therefore under condemnation, God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those that repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, often subsequent to regeneration.

We believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church: 1) baptism and 2) the Lord's Supper. We believe in the baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.

We believe also in the laying on of hands for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, for the ordination of pastors, elders and deacons and for receiving gifts of the Spirit or healing.

We believe in the personal and visible return of Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgement and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.

 We believe in what is termed "The Apostles Creed" as embodying fundamental facts of Christian faith.
