What We Believe

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

Core Beliefs

WE BELIEVE there is One Living and True GOD, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. The Trinity is equal in power and glory, created all, upholds all, and governs all. (Gen.1:1: Deut.6:4; Matt.28:19; Jn.10:30)

WE BELIEVE the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God. These Scriptures are fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts and the infallible rule of faith and practice. (Isa.28:13; Ps.119:11; Jn.17:17; 2 Tim.3:16-17; Heb.4:12; 1 Pet.1:23-25; 2 Pet.1:21)

WE BELIEVE that God The Father is an Infinite, Personal Spirit Perfect in Holiness, Wisdom, Power and Love. He concerns Himself Mercifully in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer and saves all who come to Him through Jesus Christ from sin and death. ( Ps.89:26; Ps.90:2; Ps.102:27; Jn.4:24; 1 Jn.1:2)

WE BELIEVE Jesus is God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth. (Isa.7:14; Mic.5:2; Matt.1:23; Mk.16:19; Lk.1:34-35; Jn.1:1-3; Jn.8:58: Jn.11:25; 1 Cor.15:3-4; Heb.1:8; 1 Jn.1:2; Rev.1:8)

WE BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit Who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit dwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.  We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit. (Acts1:8; 2 Cor.3:18; Jn.16:7-11; Rom.15:13, 16; Heb.9:14)

WE BELIEVE the Church is the living spiritual body of Jesus of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members who are to be in regular attendance. (1 Cor.12:12-27; Eph.4:15-16; Heb.10:24-25)

WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two Ordinances to the Church: (1) Baptism, and (2) Communion.  We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers. (Matt.28:19; 1 Cor.11:23-26)

WE BELIEVE also in the Laying on of hands for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, for ordination of pastors, elders, deacons, and receiving gifts of the Spirit. (Acts 6:2-6; 1Tim.3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9)

WE BELIEVE in the personal, visible return of Jesus to earth, the establishment of His Kingdom, the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, endless separation and suffering of those who have rejected Jesus' atonement and eternal blessing of those who have accepted the free gift of salvation purchased by Jesus. (Matt.16:27; Acts 1:11; 1Cor.15:52-53; Rev.19:11-16, Rev.20:11-15)

WE BELIEVE that all people are sinners by nature which separates us from The Holy, Righteous, and Sinless God. Therefore, we are under condemnation. As a result of spiritual death from our sin nature, we need to be born from above, born-again, having our spiritual birth in Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. A man is saved by God by His grace alone, through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone as Lord and Savior. A sign of true Biblical faith is when we are convicted of our sin, we repent, turn from it and follow Jesus. ( John 3:3, 6, 16-18; Rom. 3:21-26; Rom. 5:1-2, 12,18; Rom. 10:9-10; Eph. 2:8; Titus 3:5; 2 Cor. 5:17; Acts 3:19; Acts 17:30-31; 2 Pet. 3:9)

WE BELIEVE in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell. All people who place their faith, hope and trust in Jesus Christ will spend eternity with the Lord while those who reject Jesus’ free gift of salvation will spend eternity separated from Him. (Psalm 9:16-17; Psalm 11:4; John 10:27-28; 2Thessalonians 1:8-9; 2Peter 2:4, 9; 1John 5:11-13)

WE BELIEVE in the 7 Day Creation for which God was the Creator. We believe that God created man and that He created them male and female. God instituted marriage between one biological male and one biological female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, homosexuality, and all other sexual preferences, orientations and transgenderism are unnatural, sinful and unacceptable to God. As a result, this ministry will not perform any marriages between two individuals of the same biological sex. We will not condone or recognize same-sex marriages, civil unions, or domestic partnerships. (Gen.1:1; Gen.1:27; Gen.2:24; Deut.22:5; Isa.42:5; Rom.1:18-32; 1 Cor.6:9-11, 18-20; Gal.5:19-21; Col.1:16-17)
