Basic Beliefs

The Church of God is a conservative Bible believing church. We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. Following is a summary of our basic beliefs.
 
God There is only one God. God is a Spirit that is all present. He exists and works as God the Father, Jesus the Son who lived in human form and the Holy Spirit who is present in the world today.
 
Jesus Is the only begotten Son of God (John 3:16). In Jesus the fullness of God dwells (Colossians 2:9). Jesus is the only means of salvation (Acts 4:12). Salvation is through faith in Jesus (Ephesians 2:8-9)
 
Salvation Everyone is a sinner (Romans 3:23). The penalty for sin is death (Romans 6:23). Jesus is the atoning sacrifice for our sins (I John 2:1-2). We are saved through faith in Jesus as our Savior (Ephesians 2:8-9).
 
Divine Healing God performs healing miracles in answer to prayer of faith (James 5:14-15).
 
Immortality We believe in the immortality of the soul; the resurrection of the dead; the general judgment; eternal rewards and punishments (Matthew 25).
 
Ordinances Baptism by immersion (Matthew 28:19-20).
 

The Lord’s supper (communion).

 
Holiness We believe in a life of practical holiness and devotion to God. Titus 2:11-12 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world. Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
