WHATWEBELIEVE


"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household."

Acts 16:31



There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving, and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be self-existent, one Being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.


The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and God's Anointed One, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God's Kingdom on Earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, buried, resurrected and ascended into Heaven and is now alive today in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is the "true God" and the "true man".


The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.


Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. As a result sickness, death, and judgement entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.


We are saved by God's grace through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing, and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.


In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a holy life and minister supernaturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have God's power to be His witnesses.


The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy -- sin, lies, sickness, and torment. We believe that because of the finished work of the cross -- sickness, disease, poverty, depression, and any other work of darkness has no more hold over us or those we come in contact with. Because we have been created in His image, our true identity is as a son and daughter of the most high King. Thus we co-reign with our God as royalty, called to serve those around us.


The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His Kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God's love, disciplining the nations, baptizing, and teaching them to love and obey God. 


We believe in the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign with His overcoming bride -- the church. 


Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other everlasting death.
