WHAT WE BELIEVE

About the Bible...

The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man's problems. (2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)



About God...

There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7)



About Man...

Man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God. (Genesis 1:26; I Timothy 2:5)



About Salvation...

We can have a relationship with God through salvation, God's free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God's unearned favor. By admitting we have sinned, believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God. (Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24)



About Hell...

Hell is a real place of eternal conscious torment for the unrepentant. God's desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity. This is why He sent His Son Jesus. The only way one can escape the reality of Hell is through faith in Jesus alone. (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18)



About the Second Coming...

Jesus will return for all those who believe in Him as Savior and Lord.  (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28)



About Baptism...

We believe in full-imerson water baptism as taught and demonstrated by Jesus. It is a way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17)



About Sanctification...

Sanctification is the ongoing process of the Holy Spirit's work within the believer to become more like Jesus. (Romans 6:19;

Galatians 5:22-25)



About Service...

God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to use his Church to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted. (Psalm 68:5,6; I John 4:16)



About Spiritual Gifts...

The Holy Spirit distributes various Spiritual Gifts to all believers. They are for the strengthening of God's people (the Church) and proof of God's existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11; I Peter 4:10)



About the Baptism of the Holy Spirit...

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. The Holy Spirit empowers the believer to become more like Jesus and to live a sacrificial life of service to God. (Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4)



About Divine Healing...

Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Healing includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration. (Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1)
