What We Believe

United Church is founded upon these beliefs:

The Bible:

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, giving a true history of the creation of heaven, earth, and humanity and containing a correct prophecy of the ages to come regarding heaven, earth, and the destiny of humanity. Moreover, there is no salvation outside of what is taught in its pages.


We believe that there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4).  He is the creator of Heaven and Earth, and all living beings.  He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Ghost (indwelling spirit).


We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.  Through baptism we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Scripture References: Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38).

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. (Scripture References: Acts 2:4).

Gifts of the Spirit:

We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. God ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps, and government. (Scripture References: Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11).
