What We Believe
The ONE TRUE GOD OF LOVE
We believe in the one-eternal God, Creator and Lord of the world, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who governs all things according to the purpose of His will. He has been calling out from the world a people for himself, and sending his people back into the world to be his servants and his witnesses, for the extension of his kingdom, the building up of Christ's body, and the glory of his name. We confess Jesus, God's one and only Son who sent as love to remedy and bridge mankind back to God. We Believe Jesus is the only way to God the Father, but He did make a way! We believe LOVE and only LOVE covers a multitude of sins and failures. All Have sinned and all have fallen—but we believe ALL CAN GET BACK UP! ISA. 40:28; EPH. 1:11; 1 PETER 4:8; ROM 3:23
The Authority and Power of the Bible
We believe and affirm the divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of both Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice. We also affirm the power of God's word to accomplish his purpose of salvation. The message of the Bible is addressed to all men and women. For God's revelation in Christ and in Scripture is unchangeable. Through it the Holy Spirit still speaks today. He illumines the minds of God's people in every culture to perceive its truth freshly through their own eyes and thus discloses to the whole Church ever more of the many-colored wisdom of God. Summed up, the Bible is our road map to guard and govern our lives to follow God's perfect will. II TIM. 3:16; II PET. 1:21; JOHN 10:35
The POWER OF THE HOLY SPiRIT
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all believers, empowering them for evangelism and equipping them for personal edification; and the edifying of the church. We Believe this power is still available today for all who ask and believe. We believe in the indwelling presence of God through the Holy Spirit that works in and through us to accomplish the greater things Jesus promised we would do. We believe in praying for the sick by the laying on of hands to experience healing and full recovery. Acts 1:5-8; Act 8:9-24; 1 Corinthians 12, 14
We believe in the importance of water baptism. We believe that water baptism is an outward sign of an inward change and identifies each believer with Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection; and that it is an important step in the faith journey of every believer. Romans 6:3-6
We believe God calls every Christian to be a member of a local church. Psalms 92:13 says, "those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish." And Jesus said, in Matthew 16:18, "the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church." Being a part of the physical expression of God's Church is vital for a victorious walk with God. We believe community and fellowship with believers is an important part of every believer life and journey.
