Our Beliefs

What We Believe


The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God.  The Bible was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  The Bible is truth, without error and completely relevant to our daily lives. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

The Trinity

The Trinity is the godhead.  There is One True God existing in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.  Each person serves different functions but possess equal power and authorityTherefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” Matthew 28:19

The Father

The Father is God.  God is our heavenly father.  He is all powerful, all knowing, and always present.  God never changes, the same yesterday as is He is today and will be tomorrow.  God is good.  He is agape love and always faithful.  yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.” 1 Corinthians 8:6

The Son

The Son is Jesus Christ.  Jesus is completely human, but completely God.  Jesus is the only way for all of us to get back in right relationship with God.  Jesus defeated death on the cross in His resurrection and ascended into heaven.  He died so that we can have eternal life.  “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is also referred to as Holy Ghost.  The Holy Spirit presence is our Helper sent from heaven above to guide us to Truth and exalt Jesus.  He convicts people of sin, reveals God’s righteousness, and also the coming judgement.  He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, making us more like Jesus Christ.  But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” John 14:26

The Church

The Church is a community of born-again believers unified in their faith in Jesus Christ.  The Church works together in love, seeking to bring the Gospel to the world, while being committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying God’s commands.  We believe Jesus is coming back for the Church.  They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” Acts 2:42-47

Sin

Sin was introduced to man in Genesis chapter three.  Sin is what separates us from a relationship with God.  Sin is in direct opposition of a holy and just God.  Where sin is, God cannot reside.  This is why salvation is imperative to the sinner.  “But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.” Isaiah 59:2

Salvation

Salvation is a gift of God.  Salvation can only be received by faith in the shed blood of our Savior Jesus Christ. Salvation cannot be earned through our efforts.  “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

Baptism

Baptism in water is a sacrament and ordained by God for every born-again believer.  It is a physical representation of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  “For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism.  And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.  Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was.  We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives.  We are no longer slaves to sin.” Romans 6:4-6

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is promised to all believers as an entrance to a Spirit-filled life including:  a prayer language (speaking in tongues), gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the power to be a witness and anointed servant of God.  I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Matthew 3:11

Supernatural Healing

Supernatural Healing is available through faith in the name of Jesus Christ.  Physical healing, mental healing, emotional healing, and other types of healing is the work of God Almighty.  Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.” James 5:14-15

Supernatural Deliverance

Supernatural Deliverance is available through the Holy Spirit. Brokenness and strongholds are a work from Satan.  Spiritual darkness and evil spirits are used to kill, steal, and destroy God’s children.  Those demons can be overcome and cast away in the name of Jesus Christ.  and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” Psalm 50:15

Spiritual Empowerment

Spiritual Empowerment of the Holy Spirit is available to all of us.  We are equipped to minister to one another and live spiritually fruitful lives when we receive the power of the Holy Spirit.  The Supernatural miracles will follow the ministry of believers and make those gifts manifest to those that minister in His power.  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
