Our beliefs

Bible

Alive and active, we believe the Bible continues to speak into our lives today. We believe the entire Bible is the inspired, only infallible, inerrant, written Word of God, the revelation of God’s will for man and the divine and final authority for the Christian life.

God

We believe in one true, holy God, the Creator and Sustainer of all things visible and invisible, who eternally exists and is revealed in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
In the beginning, God demonstrated His love, power, wisdom, and goodness by creating the world and everything in it. Through His divine power and providence, God continues to sustain His creation, operating within history to fulfill His redemptive purposes.

Jesus

We acknowledge Jesus Christ as the eternally begotten Son of God, fully God and fully man — conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, He lived a sinless life, performed miracles, was crucified, and rose again — having defeated the power of death, our High Priest and Advocate is now seated at the right hand of God the Father.

Salvation

We believe Jesus provides the only Way of salvation through the forgiveness of sins by His shed blood. Through having a personal relationship with Jesus by asking Him into your heart, we find salvation and forgiveness, acknowledging every person’s need for the grace and mercy of God. We all have sinned. We all need Jesus.

Romans 3:23-24, Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 1:7, 1 Peter 1:3, 1 John 1:9

Additional Verses: Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-66, 28:1-6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:3. 3:16, 3:36; 5:24 10:10; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10;Chapter 6; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20
 

Eternity

Man was created to exist forever. All humanity will experience a bodily resurrection and a judgment that will determine the fate of each individual. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in joyful union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in joyful union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.

Additional Verses: John 3:16, Romans 6:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:15

 


Baptism

We believe that water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in the authority of Jesus’ name, should be followed by all who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ as both spiritually transformative and a public profession of their faith in Christ.

Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:36-39, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12
 

Holy Spirit

We believe in the present supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose purpose is to glorify Jesus Christ and instruct and empower every believer for godly living and service. The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism with the Holy Spirit is a promise from God for every believer and is for today. Speaking in tongues, as the Holy Spirit gives utterance, is a physical indication of the baptism in the Holy Spirit.


Matthew 3:11, Acts 2:4, 38-39, 19:4-6
 

Communion

We believe that the holy ordinance of Communion should be received by believers walking in fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ as a remembrance and celebration of what Christ Jesus and what He accomplished on the cross.

Luke 22:19-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29


Second Coming

Matthew 24:29-31, 1 Corinthians 15:19, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 22:17


Healing

We believe that Jesus is the Healer and healing is available for all today in heart, soul, mind, and body. 

Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 8:16-17, James 5:14-15, 1 Peter 2:24

 


Prayer

We believe in the power and effectiveness of prayer. 

Philippians 4:6-7, James 5:15-16

 


God’s Plan

We believe in God’s amazing plan for each of His followers to honor God and help people and their purpose to build the Kingdom of God here on earth.


Matthew 5:16, 25:40, Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8:28, Ephesians 2:10

Man

Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, and no matter age, race, gender, orientation, or socioeconomic status possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

The Church

We believe that the Church is comprised of all those who acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Savior and that Scripture instructs believers to identify and regularly assemble with other believers to devote themselves to worship, prayer, teaching of the Bible, fellowship, communion and works of service. The Church is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ and bringing His kingdom here on earth
