This is what we believe

Ultimately, we are a local church that believes in the full authority of the scriptures. We are doing our best to understand and apply the doctrines taught in the Bible in a spirit of honesty and humility.  We’d love for you to join us on this journey.


We believe that Jesus Christ ascended to the Father and is presently seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us.

John 14:1-6; Romans 8:34

Baptism in Holy Spirit

Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth.

Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6

Blood Atonement

We believe in the saving power of the Blood of Jesus Christ and His imputed righteousness to all who believe in Him with faith.

Acts 4:12; Romans 4:1-9, 5:1-11; Ephesians 1:3-15

Bodily Resurrection

We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Luke 24:39-43; John 20:24-29

Divine Healing

We believe that God does use doctors, medicines, and other material means for healing. However, we also believe God still heals as an answer to prayer. Divine healing may be received through the laying on of hands by the elders, by the laying on of hands by believers, by the prayer of an anointed person gifted for healing the sick, by the anointing with oil and the prayer of faith, or by a direct act of faith where the believer receives healing from the Lord Jesus Christ without ministry from anyone else.

Isaiah 53:5; James 5:14-16; Mark 16:18; I Corinthians 12:9; Mark 11:23

Divinity and Humanity of Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is God come in the flesh and He is both divine and human.

Luke 1:26-38; John 12:13; Acts 2:36; Acts 3:14,15; Philippians 2:5-12; Ephesians 1:3-15


We believe in one God revealed in three Persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 3:16,17; John 17

Heaven and Hell

We believe the Holy Scriptures clearly set forth the doctrines of eternal punishment for the lost and eternal bliss and salvation for the saved – Hell for the unsaved and Heaven for the saved.

Matthew 25:34, 41, 46; Luke 16:19-31; John 14:1-3; Revelation 20:11-15

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity whose purpose in the redemption is to convict him of sin, regenerate the repentant believer, guide the believer into understanding the Holy Scriptures, indwell and give gifts to believers as He wills, that they may minister as Christ would to men.

Local Church

We believe that the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local expression of a Body of Believers who have been baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; who are under-recognized, delegated authorities; and who assemble to worship, carry forth the Great Commission and minister as the Holy Spirit leads.

Matthew 16:18, 28:19-20; Acts 2 40-47; Ephesians 5:22-32; I Timothy 3:15


We believe that man, in his natural state, is a sinner, lost undone, without hope, and without God.

Romans 3:19-23; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:1,2,12


We believe that the two ordinances of the church are water baptism and communion (The Lord’s Supper).

Matthew 3:15,16; 28:19-20; Acts 8:38; Romans 6:1-4; Luke 22:13-20

Priesthood of Believers

We believe that each believer is a priest of the Lord Jesus Christ and has direct access to the Father through the Lord Jesus. Each person must believe for himself, be baptized for himself, obey for himself and answer to his Creator for himself.

Revelation 1:6; I Peter 2:9


We believe that the terms of salvation are repentance toward God for sin, and a personal heartfelt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, which results in the regeneration of the person. This salvation is entirely by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and not of works. Works are excluded except as fruit of salvation.

Acts 3:19,20; Romans 4:1-5, 5:1; Ephesians 2:8-10

Second Coming

We believe in the visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to this earth to gather His Church (Bride) and judge the world. Note: It is not necessary that we all believe alike concerning whether He is coming before, during, or after the Great Tribulation.

Acts 1:10,11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; II Thessalonians 1:7-10; James 5:8; Revelation 1:7

Separated Life

We believe that the believers should seek, as the early disciples did, to practice the separated life from the world and unto Jesus Christ and to set a standard of conduct which shall exalt our Lord and His church.

Romans 12:1-3; II Corinthians 6:17; Galatians 6:14; Ephesians 5:11; Colossians 3:17

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible’s lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters.

Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-8; Ephesians 4:16; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6-7; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10

The Holy Bible

We believe in the verbal inspiration and the inerrancy and infallibility of the Holy Bible, both the Old and New Testaments.

II Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; I Peter 1:23-25; II Peter 1:19-21; Acts 2:36; Acts 3:14,15; Philippians 2:5-12; Ephesians 1:3-15

The Institution of Marriage

We believe in the creation and God as the Creator. We believe that God created man and that He created them male and female. As such, He created them differently so as to complement and complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between males and females as the foundation of the family, the basic structure of human society. We, therefore, believe in the sanctity of marriage, having been ordained and instituted by God Himself when Adam and Eve were joined together as husband and wife in the Garden of Eden. This holy union is the basis upon which the family unit is formed and a godly society is perpetuated. A husband and his wife are commanded to raise their children in the nurture, admonition, and fear of the Lord. For these reasons, we find adultery (extra-marital sexual activity), fornication (sexual intercourse outside of marriage), homosexuality (same-sex sexual relations), and other sexual practices, which are forbidden by the Scriptures, to be detrimental to the plan and purpose of God for the family.

Romans 1:16-32, I Corinthians 6:9-20, 7:2-3; Ephesians 5:23-33

Tithes and Offerings

We believe that God’s plan of finance for His work is by tithes and offerings and that it is a joy for His children to acknowledge His Lordship in this manner.

Malachi 3:6-12; Genesis 14:17-20; Hebrews 7:1-10; Matthew 23:23; II Corinthians 8 and 9; Acts 20:35

New Here?

We sincerely believe God is transforming the Lowcountry through the proclamation of the gospel and the power of the Spirit. We would love for you to join us on our journey of seeing His glory permeate our region.
