WHAT WE BELIEVE

Our Values and Essential Truths

1. In essential beliefs, we have unity.

 

"There is one Body and one Spirit...there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all" Ephesians 4:4-6

 

2. In non-essential beliefs, we have liberty.

 

"Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters...Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls...So then each of us will give an account of himself to God...So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God." Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22

 

3. In all our beliefs, we show charity.

 

"If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains - but have no love, I amount to nothing at all."
1 Corinthians 13:2 (Ph)

 

Our Essential Truths

 

WE BELIEVE 
The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare 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–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
 
WE BELIEVE
Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through 'Salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior).
 
WE BELIEVE
In two ordinances :
(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation.
(2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
 
WE BELIEVE the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.
 
WE BELIEVE
The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is 'Speaking in Tongues,' as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.
 
WE BELIEVE
Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike.
 
WE BELIEVE
The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. 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
A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry Serves the Church. 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).
 
WE BELIEVE
The Blessed Hope—When Jesus Raptures His Church Prior to His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.
 
WE BELIEVE
In The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.
 
WE BELIEVE
A Final Judgment Will Take Place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.
 
WE BELIEVE
and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. 'And so shall we forever be with the Lord!'
