Once again Jesus began teaching by the lakeshore. There was such a large crowd along the shore that he got  into a boat and sat down and spoke from there. He began to teach the people by telling many stories such as  this one: “Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seed. As he  scattered it across his field, some seed fell on a footpath, and the  birds came and ate it. Other seed fell on shallow soil with underlying  rock. The plant sprang up quickly, but it soon wilted beneath the hot sun and died because the roots had no nourishment in the shallow  soil. Other seed fell among thorns that shot up and choked out the  tender blades so that it produced no grain. Still other seed fell on fertile soil and produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted." Then he said, "Anyone who is willing to hear should listen and  understand!" – Mark 4:1-9

We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.

We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world.
