We believe the Bible to be the living, unchangeable, and inspired Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe in one God that exists in the persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17; John 1:14; 1 John 4:16-17)
We believe that Jesus, the Messiah, is the only Son of God who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and resurrected from the dead and that He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God making intercession for us. (Matthew 1:18-25; 1 John 4:9; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Luke 23:44-56; Luke 24:1-12; Acts 1:9-11; Acts 7:55-56; Romans 8:34; Ephesians 1:20; Colossians 3:1)
We believe in divine healing for all through Jesus Christ. (Psalms 103:3; Isaiah 53:4,5 ; Matthew 8:17; James 5:14- 16; 1 Peter 2:24)
We believe that all people have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and that it is necessary to be born again through repentance and the forgiveness of sins that is made possible because of faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23; John 3:4-8; John 14:6; Ephesians 1:7)
We believe in water baptism through immersion for those that have repented of their sins in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22; John 1:29-33; Mark 1:4,5; Acts 8:35-38; Romans 6:3-6; Galatians 3:27; 1 Peter 3:21)
HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM
We believe in the infilling and indwelling of the power of God to allow the believer to live an overcoming life and desire the fulfillment of the gifts of the Spirit.
(Matthew 3:11; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; John 15:26; Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 4:31; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11)
We believe in communion, the Lord’s Supper, that remembers the willing sacrifice of the blood and body of Jesus Christ. (Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ to resurrect the dead in Christ and then the alive of Christ to meet in the air, then to reign on the earth with Jesus Christ a thousand years. (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:15- 17; 2 Thessalonians 2:1; Zechariah 14:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:14; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; Jude 14, 15; Revelation 5:10; Revelation 19:11-21; Revelation 20:4-6).
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
2 Timothy 3:16
We believe in prayer and intercession. These should be important in the life of every believer. We “seek first His kingdom and His righteousness” by being a praying church: teaching about prayer, opening our doors for prayer and individually seeking our Lord in prayer daily. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and seeks direction through the Word. We value the Bible as the instruction manual for all ministry, decisions and teaching. We seek to operate according to sound Biblical principles. (Psalm 119:105).
We seek to be responsive to the direction of the Holy Spirit, by yielding ourselves to His leading to an ever-increasing degree. We seek to submit ourselves to the Holy Spirit in order that both the fruit and the gifts promised in the Word will become evident in us. (Romans 8:14)
We expect a standard of behavior whereby each member will love and respect others according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. We expect righteous conduct in both our word and deed in every aspect of our lives. (Proverbs 11:3)
We are dedicated to building the Kingdom of God beyond our own community of believers. Our focus is not exclusively to add members to our church, but to add souls to God’s Kingdom. We are submitted to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and as such, are not locked into traditional patterns to achieve these goals, but are open to new and innovative methods of ministry. (Acts 28:31)
We value the prayer of Jesus for unity found in John 17:20-22. In response, we are committed to be a community of believers in covenant with God and with one another, offering each other compassion, love and loyalty.
We expect every believer to be a faithful steward through giving their time, talent, and tithe to the service of the Lord. (1 Corinthians 4:2)
We recognize that becoming effective in the Kingdom of God is proportionately related to the degree of servanthood that we are willing to assume. Therefore, we serve the Lord in serving others. (John 13:14-17)
We value the spiritual freedom expressed by Paul found in Galatians 5:1. We recognize that religion at times brought believers into bondage and has made the Word of God less effective. Therefore, we choose to walk in the freedom of God’s Word and His Spirit.
We believe God is speaking in these latter times. This ministry will be a relevant spiritual voice that will speak truth, revelation, wisdom, warning, and direction as Holy Spirit directs. (Act 2:17-18)
We are committed to help every covenant member mature in his or her faith walk. We are committed to discipling believers in the teachings of Jesus Christ, and identifying and developing the spiritual ministry gifts the Lord has given every individual for the work of the ministry. (Matthew 28:19-20)
