What We Believe

Core Beliefs

Belief in the saving Grace of Jesus Christ and repentance of sins. Mark 16:16, John 3:15-18 & Romans 1:16-17.

Water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ and by a life lived in harmony with the principles of God’s Word. Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, Acts 10:44-48, & Romans 6:14.

Holy Spirit Baptism. The Holy Spirit baptism is promised by God to all who repent and believe as evidenced in scripture. Acts 2:38-47, Acts 4:4, Acts 8:17, Acts 19 1-6.


The Bible is the Inspired Word of God. God’s Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority. We accept the Bible as our manual for living and basics for all we believe. 2 Timothy 3:16, NLT, 1 Thessalonians 7:13


There is one God, Eternal, Omniscient, Omnipresent, and Omnipotent, a self-sufficient, who has manifested Himself as Father, Son and Holy Ghost. He is the Father in creation, Son in redemption and the Holy Ghost in regeneration.


Jesus Christ is the son of God. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. [John 1:1, 14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Timothy 2:5; John 14:6].


Jesus Christ was conceived by God, through the Holy Spirit in the Virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God [Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35].


Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell; his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God [Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21].


We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts [Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22; Romans 5:1].


Man was created in the image of God, but by exercise of his own will, he transgressed the will of God and fell in sin. His only hope of redemption is through Jesus Christ the Son of God.


Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation [Acts 2:21 & 38, 3:19; I John 1:9].


Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life [I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, II Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11].


The Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death [I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29].


Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth [Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5,2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6; Acts 1:8].


The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters. [Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-8; Ephesians 4:16; I Timothy 4:14; II Timothy 1:6-7; I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10; 1 Corinthians 12: 4-12].


The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus' Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. [Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23].


It is the Father's will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provision in order to better serve others.

Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation [Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21].


Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ [Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; II Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; I Peter 1:4; John 5:24].


After living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell where they will be eternally tormented with the Devil and the Fallen Angels [Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8].


Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures [Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; II Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7]
