We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as Father in creation, through His Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. (Col 2:9, Phil 2:7-8, Dt 6:4, Isa 43:10-11, Eph 4:5-6, Col 1:16, 1Jn 5:7, Jn 1:1 Jn1:14)
We believe the Bible is the infallible and inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin; that he lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the grave; and that he has been exalted to the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that through his death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living. And that He is the full embodiment of the Godhead (1 Tim 3:16, Col 2:9)
We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again both of the water by being baptized in Jesus’ Name and of the spirit by receiving the Holy Ghost become children of God and heirs with Christ. (Acts 2:38, John 3:1-5)
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues as seen throughout the book of Acts , along with His accompanying gifts, is the privilege of all New Testament believers.
We believe the Church has been “called out” of the world to be a habitation of God through the Spirit. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to mankind. The church is one body made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit.
Praise and Worship
We believe in expressing the love we have for God and our thankfulness for what He has and will do in our lives through exuberant praise and worship. Giving all to God.
