What We Believe
1. The Trinity.
We believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each One is individual in person, but one, in unity and essence, as the Godhead. God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Genesis1:1, Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19, John 1:1-4 , 17:21, 23
2. The Infallibility and Authority of the Bible.
We believe that the Bible, made up of 66 books, is the Word of God. It is the truth, inspired by God and the way of life, for all Christians.
Psalm 119, John 17:17, 2 Timothy 3:16-17
3. The New Birth and Sanctification.
We believe every person needs salvation; a spiritual birth to receive eternal life. Salvation is available to all, through the life, crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Believers are set apart, from the world system, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
John 3:1-21, 1 John 5:1-4, I Thess. 5:23, Rom. 12:1-2
4. The Church.
We believe in the church, the Body of Christ, comprising of all believers worldwide and throughout history. It is expressed visibly, in the local assembly of Christians, and is the center of healing and spiritual growth, for all believers.
Psalm 92:13-14, Matthew 16:18, Ephesians 1:22-23
5. Ordinances of the Church.
We believe in Water Baptism, for the born again person, and the continual remembrance of the Lord’s Body and Blood, in the Communion Service.
Matthew 3:16, 28:19, Acts 8:36-39, 1Corinthians 11:23-26
6. Health and Healing.
We believe physical and emotional healing has all been paid for, through the crucified Body of Jesus.
Isaiah 53:3-5, Matthew 8:16-17, 1 Peter 2:24
7. Spiritual Power and Gifts
We believe all born again people can and should be baptized, with the Holy Spirit, and empowered with Spiritual Gifts.
Mark 16:17, Acts 1:8, 2:1-4, 10:44-46, 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:15
We believe in evangelism. All people should be saved and all Christians should participate, on a local and global level, in this mission.
Matthew 28:18-19, Mark 16:15-18, Acts 1:8, 1 Timothy 2:4
9. Financial Partnership
We believe in the church’s responsibility, to finance the Gospel, through the individual’s tithes and offerings.
Malachi 3:8-12, Luke 11:42, 2 Cor. 8:1-9, 9:6-11, Hebrews 7:4-10
We believe that marriage is a divine institution, solely between a man and a woman, and should be honored as such.
Genesis 2:20-25, Matthew 19:3-8, Romans 1:26, Ephesians 5:22-33
We believe that every person, including the unborn, is important to God and has divine value and an eternal destiny, given by God.
Psalm 139:13-18, Jeremiah 1:4-5, John 3:16, Ephesians 1:3-6
12. The Future and Eternity
We believe in the catching away of the church and also in the return of Jesus Christ, to rule the earth in righteousness. We believe in a literal, heaven and hell, as taught by Jesus, in the Gospels.
Acts 1:9-11, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18, 5:1-4, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10, Matthew 25:32-46, 2 Peter 2:4-9
