WHO WE ARE

Statement of faith

 

  • We believe that there is only one God, and that He is eternally existent in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

  • We believe that God the Father is the Creator of the universe.  He created man in His own image for fellowship, and called man back to Himself through Jesus Christ after the rebellion and fall of man.

 

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is eternally God. He was together with the Father and the Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him all things were made. He left heaven and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary; henceforth, He is forever one Christ with two natures, God and Man, in one Person.

 

  • We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues, subsequent to conversion, releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

 

  • We believe that the Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction, and reproof.  It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct.

 

  • We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

 

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God.  He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.

 

  • We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.

 

  • We believe that Salvation is a free gift of God, based on the merits of the death of His Son, and is appropriated by faith. Salvation is effected by personal repentance, belief in the Lord Jesus (justification), and personal acceptance of Him into one's life as Lord and Savior (regeneration).

 

  • We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God among the saints through the Spirit. Every believer born of the Spirit has a place in the church designated by God; a place where Christ is working in the lives of the called-out ones and calling ministers to the Great Commission, to go into all the world and make disciples of every nation.

 

  • We believe in the ordinances of Baptism and The Lord's Supper. Baptism is the outward sign of what God has already done in the individual's life, and is a public testimony that the person now belongs to Christ. In it the new believer identifies with the death and resurrection of Jesus. Baptisms are performed in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord's Supper is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again. It is a sign of our participation in Him.

 

  • We believe In the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the saints, the millennium, and the final judgment. The final judgment will determine the eternal status of both the saints and the unbelievers, determined by their relationship to Jesus Christ.
