We believe in the infilling of the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) which is Jesus Christ dwelling within us through His Spirit. We believe this infilling will allow us to speak in “unknown tongues” similar to that on the Day of Pentecost and will produce Godly “fruit” that we cannot produce in their entirety and consistently without the empowerment of His Spirit. John 14:18, 26; Acts 1:4; Acts 2:38; Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 5:9  We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit. The Lord placed the gifts in the church for our benefit; a benefit that will be received as we yield to the leading of His Spirit as they are experienced in an orderly manner. I Corinthians 12:7-11, 14:40  We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers. I Corinthians 11:28-32  We believe that the Lord has place the “five-fold” ministry in the New testament Church which consists of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. While each specific office may not be physically represented within our congregation, we enlist the calling of these offices from among the Body of Christ to gain full benefit of the individual callings. Additionally we believe in the office of elders and deacons as part of the local congregation. Ephesians 4:11-14; I Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5  We believe that Jesus Christ will return visibly and in power to the earth and will present unto Himself a victorious and glorious church. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost, the eternal judgment of Satan and his angels. Matthew 25:41; John 3:17-18; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation
