Our Beliefs

Inspired Word of God

The Bible is God's Word to mankind, without error, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man's problems. The Bible is the final authority on which we base our faith, doctrine and how we live. The Bible tells us who we are, how we should live and contains every answer to our problems.

- 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20,21
Trinity

There is only one God who exists in three distinct persons: God the Father, God The Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to this earth as Savior of the world.

- John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7
God is Love

God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted.

- Psalm 68:5-6; 1 John 4:16
Man is created in the image of God Man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God.

- Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5

Salvation

We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation, God's free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God's unearned favor. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God.

- Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 5:1, Romans 3:24
Baptism

We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

- Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17
Holy Spirit

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. He helps empower the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God's will. The Holy Spirit is your advocate to help you and will be with you forever.

- Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4; John 14:16
Gifts of the Spirit

God gives all believers spiritual gifts. They are for the strengthening of God's people (the Church) and proof of God's existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today.

- 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10
Sanctification

Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God's character to be developed in us.

- Romans 6:19; Galatians 5:22-25
Divine Healing

Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Healing includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration.

- Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1
Hell

The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God's desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth.

- Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18
Salvation

The only way to be with God the Father in heaven is through salvation in Jesus Christ.

- John 14:6
Rapture

Jesus will return and take all those who have accepted Him as Lord and Savior to heaven for eternity.

- Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28
Growing in Christ

Every believer should be in a growing relationship with Jesus by obeying God's Word, yielding to the Holy Spirit and by being conformed to the image of Christ. As children of God, we are overcomers and more than conquerors. God intends for each of us to experience the abundant life He has in store for us.

- Romans 8:36-38; John 14:20-22; Romans 12:1-3
