© Illinois Valley Praise Center Made with MAGIX  We believe that the bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God.  We believe in One Eternal God existent in three persons. Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His substitutionary     death for our sins,in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right     hand of the Majesty in Heaven, in His imminent return and our gathering     together to Him.  We believe that all have sinned and come short of God’s Glory and are in need of salvation.  We believe that you must be born of the Spirit to enter the Kingdom of God and be saved.  We believe in water baptism by immersion. That it is symbolic of the death and     resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and our being crucified and     resurrected with Him.  We believe in Justification and reconciliation to the Father by faith in Jesus’ shed Blood     alone and not by any righteousness of our own.  We believe in the sanctification of the Holy Spirit. That by His power working in us,     we are able to live godly lives that are well pleasing to God.
