About

We BELIEVE

We Believe in the verbal inspiration and inerrancy of the Scriptures. We embrace the authority of both the Old and New Testaments as Holy Writ - and it is the basis for our operation of faith.

We Believe in the only one true God-- Our Creator and Redeemer who exists eternally in the Personas of Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

We Believe humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, but willfully rejected, disobeyed and fell from the state of being in which he was created. The entire human race shares in man's lost and depraved nature and now experiences the effects and consequences of sin.

We Believe Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, took upon himself the form of man by means of the virgin birth, lived a sinless life, retained his absolute deity, was crucified, buried and resurrected, and being at the same time very God and very man.

We Believe that atonement for sin was made by the sacrificial, vicarious and substitutionary death of Jesus Christ.

We Believe salvation is the gift of God by grace alone, and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God.

We believe the Holy Spirit is the Promise of the Father, the Comforter who indwells and places every believer in the Body of Christ, provides spiritual gifts upon the church and beckons to the world to come to Christ.

We Believe that all Christian believers are filled with the Spirit of God, however the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a definite enduement of power in order for the believer to flow in giftings and to minister supernaturally, seperate from conversion.

We believe the Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus; It is the covenant relationship of the Church to advance His Kingdom, to fight the works of the enemy through Prayer, to live the good news of God's Love, to make disciples, to Baptize believers by immersion, to partake in Communion and Fellowship, and to teach the household of Faith to be salt and light to the world. We do not participate in this manner so that we will be saved, but because we have been saved. By grace through faith.

We Believe in the increasing Kingdom government of God, and the glorious return of Jesus Christ as the Blessed Hope of the Church. Heaven and Hell are real. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to an everlasting death.
