Covenant Church Basic Tenets of Faith
We believe THE BIBLE is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative
written Word of God.
We believe there is ONE GOD, eternally existent in three Persons:
God the Father
God the Son
God the Holy Spirit
We believe in the Deity of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, His virgin birth, His sinless life,
His miracles, His victorious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right Hand of the Father, His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule.
We believe in the BLESSED HOPE - the rapture of the Church at Christ's second coming.
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 the Re-generation by the HOLY SPIRIT is essential for personal salvation.
We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on THE CROSS provides healing for the body in response to believing prayer.
We believe that the BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for it evidenced by "speaking in tongues".
We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is able to live a HOLY LIFE.
In water BAPTISM BY IMMERSION, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
We believe in the RESURRECTION of both the saved and the lost: the one to everlasting life, and the other to everlasting damnation.
