The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God.  We believe in His substitutionary death for all men, His resurrection, and His eventual return to judge the world.
(John 1:1,14, 20:28 ; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5).

 

Trinity

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26 ; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11).

 

Salvation
We believe all men are born with a sinful nature and that the work of the Cross was to redeem man from the power of sin.  We believe that this salvation is available to all who will receive it. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16 , 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31 ; Hebrews 9:22 ).

 

Repentance

We Believe repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation (Acts 2:21 , 3:19 ; I John 1:9).

 

Sanctification 

We Believe sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God's Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, II Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).

 

Jesus Blood

We believe the Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death (I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20 ; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29).

 

Resurrection

We believe Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation (Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19 -21, 20:26 -28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21 ).

 

Second comming

We believe Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures (Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; II Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7)

 

The Holy Spirit
We believe in the existence of the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity and in His interaction with man.  We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as manifested by the fruit and the gifts of the Spirit.

 

The Sacred Scripture
We believe in the scripture as the inspired Word of God and that it is the complete revelation of God's will for mankind.  We believe in the absolute authority of the scripture to govern the affairs of men. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26).

 

Stewardship
We believe that every man is the steward of his life and resources which ultimately belong to God.  We believe that tithing is a measure of obedience to the scriptural principles of stewardship.

 

The Church
We believe in the Church as the eternal and universal Body of Christ consisting of all those who have accepted the work of the atonement. We believe in the need for a local assembly of believers for the purpose of evangelism and edification. (Ephesians 1:22 , 2:19 -22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23).

 

Prayer and Praise
We believe in the worship of the Lord through singing, clapping, and the lifting of hands. We believe in the authority of the believer to ask freely of the Lord for his needs.

 

Body Ministry
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit to the Church body through the anointing of oil by the elders of the church.

 

GOD'S  will for provision

We believe it is the Father's will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God's will while on Earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ's provision in order to better serve others.

Spiritual - (John 3:3-11; II Corinthians 5:17 -21; Romans 10:9-10).

Mental and Emotional - (II Timothy 1:7, 2:11; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3). Physical (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:17 ; I Peter 2:24 ).

 

Evangelism
We believe that evangelism is the obligation of every follower of Jesus Christ. The Lord commands us to go out and make disciples of all the earth. We believe that each person is first responsible to evangelism in their own family as the Holy Spirit leads them and gives them the ability.

 

Water Baptism
We believe in the ordinance of water baptism by immersion in obedience to the Word of God. All those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior should be baptized in water as a public profession of their faith in Christ and to experience what the Bible calls the "circumcision of the Spirit."

 

 The Priesthood of the Believer
We believe that every believer has a unique relationship to the Lord. As His children, every Christian has immediate access to the throne of Grace and the ability to manifest the power of the Lord Jesus Christ in ministry.
