What we believe:
Statement of faith
We believe that the bible is the inspired Word of God and is the infallible guide for our conduct and faith in God. (II Timothy 3:15-16)
We believe in one God eternally existent in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. God is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, Mark 12:29)
We believe Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin and lived a blameless and sinless life. That he died for our sins and the sins of the whole world, was buried and on the third day resurrected by the glory of the father. He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God and intercedes for the saints until his return. (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 11:27, Romans 6:4)
Salvation of Man
We believe that salvation is a free gift of God and is received by grace through faith, not works. We believe repentance toward God and confession of our sins. The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all unrighteousness. (Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 John 1:7)
We believe that after repentance and confession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, a believer should be baptized by immersion of water. (Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 3:21)
Holy Spirit Baptism
We believe that all believers are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and should desire and expect to receive the power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them. This is distinct and subsequent to the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and is made manifest by the speaking in tongues, spiritual gifts, and the power for an overcoming life of service to God. (John 20:22, Acts 1:4, 8)
The Lord’s Supper
We believe the Lord’s Supper is to be celebrated by the taking of the bread and the cup, thereby, commemorating the Lord’s death until he returns.
(1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Matthew 26: 26-29)
We believe and govern our ministry under Genesis 1:27-28 and Genesis 2:21-24 regarding marriage that it is an intimate and complementing union between a gender born male and a gender born female in which the two become one physically, in the whole of life. We believe God's design for all marital relationship is heterosexual and monogamous. The purpose of marriage is to reflect the relationship of the Godhead and to serve him. The relational aspect of God's image is reflected in the bringing together of male and female in "one flesh."
The Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to Heaven, his exaltation, personal, literal, and bodily coming again the second time for the church. (John 14: 2-3, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
We believe that God has set in the Body of Christ Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers. Their offices are gifts by God for the unification of the body of faith until it is completed in Christ. (Ephesians 4: 6-11)
