What We Believe

We at RFC hold the following truths to be essential to our core values:

 

Jesus is Lord

- Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the only begotten Son of the Living God

 

Virgin Birth of Jesus

– Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary

 

Salvation

– Man can only be saved through a personal relationship with Jesus

 

The Bible is the Word of God

- The Bible is infallible, free from error, and is complete from Genesis to Revelation

 

The Scriptures:

- The Bible is the inspired Word of God and as recorded in the New Testament, we accept it as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to doctrine and conduct.

 

The Godhead:

- Our God is One, but manifested in three persons; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

Salvation:

- A gift from God, operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. The new birth is necessary for all men to receive eternal life.

 

Water Baptism:

- Baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.

 

Baptism in the Holy Ghost:

- A promise subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in tongues.

 

Sanctification:

- A definite, yet progressive work of grace starting at the new birth and continuing.

 

Divine Healing:

- Provided in the atonement of Christ and is a privilege of every member of the church today.

 

Resurrection of the Just and the Return of Our Lord:

- He shall return to Earth as King of kings and Lord of lords.

 

Hell and Eternal Retribution:

- One who physically dies without Christ is eternally lost. (Heb.9:27, Rev.19:20.)
