We believe in salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ.

He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.

1 John 5:10

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?

Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken,Smitten by God, and afflicted.

We believe in the Holy Spirit

We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues.

And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 2:4

While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. 45 And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. 46 For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit who enables a believer to live holy.

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.

Hebrews 12:14

but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, ‘Be holy, for I am holy.’
