WHAT WE BELIEVE
WE BELIEVE...The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
WE BELIEVE...There is only One True God–revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE...In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, Jesus was both human and divine.
WE BELIEVE...though originally good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
WE BELIEVE...Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through 'Salvation' (accepting Christ's offer of forgiveness for sin).
WE BELIEVE...and practice two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by Immersion and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper).
WE BELIEVE...The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service.
WE BELIEVE...The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.
WE BELIEVE...Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christ-like.
WE BELIEVE...The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE...A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry serves the Church.
WE BELIEVE...Divine Healing of the Sick is a Privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).
WE BELIEVE...in The Blessed Hope—When Jesus Raptures His Church Prior to His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.
WE BELIEVE...in The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years.
WE BELIEVE...A Final Judgment Will Take Place for those who have rejected Christ.
WE BELIEVE...and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth.
