What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer


BIBLE

The Bible is God's inspired word to us. It's the final authority on doctrinal truths, infallible and inerrant.
II Timothy 3:15-17, I Peter 1:23-25, Hebrews 4:12

God

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal.
The creator of mankind.
Genesis 1:26, Matthew 28:19, I John 5:7, John 1

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind, and thus atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory.
John 1:1,14, 20:28; 1 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; 1 Timothy 2:5

The Virgin Birth

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the Virgin Mary’s womb; therefore, He is the Son of God.
Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35

Redemption

Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness.” But man, by his transgression, fell. His only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Genesis 1:26-31, Genesis 3:1-17, Romans 5:12-21

Salvation

Our only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross, Jesus became sin and took on our disease providing both salvation and divine healing for all.
Psalm 103:3 Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:8-10, Romans 3:24

Baptism

Water baptism, being a type of burial with Christ, should be observed as commanded in the scriptures by all who have repented and in their hearts truly believe in Christ and have accepted Him as Savior and Lord.
Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:36-37, Romans 6:4

The Lord's Supper

We believe that the Lord’s Supper is an ordinance of the church established by Christ. It is a time of remembering Christ’s  sacrifice for man.
I Corinthians 11:23-31, Matthew 26:26-30

Jesus' Blood

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.
1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit

All believers are entitled to and should expect the baptism of the Holy Spirit. With it, comes power for life and service and the ability to pray in other tongues.
Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-8, 2:38, 10:44-46, 11:14-16, 19:1-6, 1 Cor. 14:1-6

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit


The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible’s lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters.
Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-8; Ephesians 4:16; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6-7;
1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10

Jesus Christ Indwells All Believers


Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to Him thus making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead.
John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelation 3:20

The Church

 The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for fulfillment of the Great Commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the church.
Ephesians 1:22, Ephesians 2:19-22, Hebrews 12:23

Marriage and Sexuality

We believe that God creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complimentary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. We believe that the term "marriage" means the uniting of one man and one woman in an exclusive union. (Genesis 1:26-27)

God's Will for Total Provision

God’s Will for Provision
It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy, and successful in all areas of life. Because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on Earth, but that fact should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provision in order to better serve others.

I Corinthians 15:51-52, I Thessalonians 4:16-17, II Thessalonians 2:1, Titus 2:13

Heaven


Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Hell

Hell is a place created by God for the devil and  fallen angels.  People choose Hell when they reject Jesus Christ as Lord.  Separation from the love of God is the result of purposefully rejecting the finished work of Jesus. Christ.
Matthew 25:34-46, 2 Thessalonians 1:6-9
