What We Believe

These are the outlines of our beliefs.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came and died on the cross as the final sacrifice for the sins of humanity. Three days later Jesus rose from the dead, thereby proving his deity and enabling us to be saved through His name. Jesus will rapture His church, then later return for His millennial rule on Earth. There will be an ultimate Day of Judgment where all will be individually judged and rewarded. The doomed will be eternally damned in the literal Lake of Fire, and the redeemed will enter Heaven as their eternal home.

There are three primary experiences of the Christian life: Salvation, Water Baptism, and Holy Spirit Baptism.

1. Salvation

    • Salvation is initiated by a prayer of faith in Jesus.
    • Salvation is completed by God’s grace.
    • Salvation is maintained by a lifestyle of Biblical righteousness.
    • Salvation is demonstrated by works.
    • Salvation is lost when we sin and do not repent.
    • Salvation is necessary to enter Heaven in eternity.

The first step in a relationship is always talking.

The Gospel is Good News in a World of Dying Virtue
In a world that is coming apart at the seams, there is hope for you! Jesus Christ died on a cross to pay the consequences of our sins for us. Jesus was the Son of God, and He has the power to free you from your sins, addictions, and shortcomings. He is always willing to forgive, no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done.
Experience the changed life that is waiting for you, if you’d only pray…
To receive Jesus into your heart, and be forgiven of your sins, pray something like this: “Jesus, I admit that I’m a sinner. Forgive me for my sins, and come into my heart. I give my life to you right now. In your name, Jesus, I pray. Amen.”
If you prayed this prayer, and meant it in your heart, then Jesus has just washed away all of your sins! It’s important that you maintain your salvation. Call 252-622-9446

2. Water Baptism

  • Water Baptism was exemplified by Christ.
  • Water Baptism is not necessary to be saved, but is definitely an important Christian experience not to be negated.
  • Water Baptism is a public demonstration of faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Water Baptism is executed in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

3. Holy Spirit Baptism

  • Holy Spirit Baptism is evidenced by speaking in tongues. (Acts 2:4; Acts 10:45–46)
  • Holy Spirit Baptism is an experience different and distinct from Salvation or Water Baptism. (Acts 1:5; Acts 10:44)

There are four primary responsibilities of each Christian: Prayer, Outreach, Reading the Bible, and Fellowship.

1. Daily Prayer

  • Seeking God in prayer is a fundamental necessity of maintaining our relationship with Him.

2. Outreach

  • Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with othersPlug into prayer

3. Reading the Bible

  • Feeding our spirit with the Word of God, and living thereby.

4. Fellowship

  • Gathering together in a local assembly of believers for worship and admonition, and spiritually enriching camaraderie with other believers.
