JESUS IS OUR CENTER
PEOPLE ARE OUR PASSION​
WORSHIP IS OUR HEART
FAITH IS OUR RESPONSE
GENEROSITY IS OUR NORM
SERVING IS OUR JOY
COMMUNITY IS OUR DESIGN

 

These beliefs are items we will not compromise on. They are the compass that points us in the right direction. The methods we use may change, but our message will remain constant. In the essentials we show unity: in the non-essentials we show liberty in all.

 

Only One Living and True God

There is only one living and true God. There are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is totally and completely holy.

Genesis 1:2, 27; Matthew 28:19; I John 5:7

 

Inspired Word of God

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.

II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20, 21

 

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is the only begotten Son of the Father. Jesus was crucified, buried and rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as our Intercessor.

Luke 1:26-33; Hebrews 7:25

 

Holy Spirit

With the Holy Spirit comes the power for life and service, the gifts given by the Holy Spirit are for ministry to the body of Christ.

Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6; I Corinthians 12:4-11

Salvation

We believe every person is disobedient to God’s desires and plans in varying degrees. Any disobedience to God, regardless of how large or small, is characterized as “sin”. “Sin” literally separates each person from God, which is spiritual death. Spiritual death is not God’s desire. People can be united with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and through Him alone. Jesus died for sinners. Anyone who accepts and believes in Jesus’ death for his or her personal sins, and desires to have Him as King of their life, is forgiven for every sin. Upon this personal decision, God re-establishes a personal relationship with that person and promises eternal life.

Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; John 14:6

 

Baptism by Immersion

We believe in water baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:18-19; John 14:6

 

Healing

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.

Acts 3:2-12; Acts 5:15-16; James 5:14-15

 

Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.

Acts 1:10-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7

 

Those Who Die Outside of Christ

We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to Jesus Christ.

Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46, John 5:29; Jude 1:7

 

Sacredness of Marriage

We believe in the sacredness of marriage and family commitment. We promote strong family values.

Ephesians 5:31-33; Ephesians 6:1-4; Hebrews 13:4
