STATEMENT OF FAITH
One True God
We believe that there is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving, and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent – one God in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the whole Bible, New and Old Testament, are inspired by the Holy Spirit, spoken by God, and recorded by man. The Bible is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:15-17
1 Thessalonians 2:13
2 Peter 1:21
The Fall of Man
We believe that humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death, and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
Deity of Jesus
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected, and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man."
Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31 Luke 1:35, Hebrews 7:26
1 Peter 2:22, Acts 2:22
Acts 10:38, 1 Corinthians 15:3, 2 Corinthians 5:21
1 Corinthians 15:4,
Acts 1:9, Acts 1:11
Acts 2:33, Philippians 2:9-11, Hebrews 1:3
We believe that we are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing, and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and adopts us as we enter the kingdom of God as His sons and daughters. We also believe that the victorious, redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy – sin, lies, sickness, and torment.
Work of The Holy Spirit
We believe in the ongoing, sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling of the Christian enables them to walk out the image of God, live a holy life, and minister super-naturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is poured out on believers, so that they may have God’s power to minister and be His witnesses.
Church Ordinance & Ministry
We believe that the Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His Church the ordinances of water baptism and communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, and discipling the nations – baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.
2 Peter 1:4
1 Corinthians 11:26
The Blessed Hope
We believe in the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign with His overcoming bride – the Church.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
1 Corinthians 15:51-52
We believe that heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the lost and the saved, God will judge the one to everlasting death and the other to everlasting life.
New Heaven & Earth
We believe that God has promised a new heaven and a new earth. We look forward to the new heavens and a new earth, where true righteousness will dwell.
2 Peter 3:13
