What We Believe
WE BELIEVE...The scriptures are inspired by God and show us His design and plan for mankind.
WE BELIEVE...There is only one true God–revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
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–allowing evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
WE BELIEVE...Every person can be restored and in fellowship with God through 'salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal savior).
WE BELIEVE...and practice two ordinances—(1) Water baptism by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy communion (the Lord's supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
WE BELIEVE...that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to empower believers for the purpose of witnessing and effective service, just as they were in New Testament times.
WE BELIEVE...in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as experienced on the Day of Pentecost. That it is evidence by “Speaking in Tongues” referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles. This experience continues today though out the world in the lives of hundreds of millions of believers.
WE BELIEVE...sanctification happens immediately when you allow Jesus to be Lord of your life, and it continues to progress over a lifelong process of learning to live more Christlike every day.
WE BELIEVE...The Church has a mission to spread the love of Christ and be his hands, feet, and mouth to a hurting and dying world. 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...biblical ministry is one of service and giving of ourselves to others. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church and to Meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.
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).
