Our Beliefs

Tenets of faith

1. The Bible is the inspired word of God and the revealed will of God. (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)
2. There is one true Godhead, comprised of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All are co-equal and co-eternal. Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh. (Matthew 28:19; I John 5:7; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1,14)
3. Man was created in God’s image. By voluntary transgression, he fell and his only hope of redemption is in Christ Jesus (Romans 5:12-21)
4. Salvation of Man:

  • A) Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross, Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and healing for all mankind. This salvation comes by believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with your mouth, Jesus is Lord (Psalms 103:3, Romans 3:24, 10:8-10; Ephesians 2:8)
  • B) The inward evidence, to the believer, is the direct witness of the Holy Spirit with our spirit. The outward evidence to all men is a life of true holiness and love. (Romans 8:16; I John 3:23; John 13:35)
  • C) Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not of human works: however, our works are evidence of our faith and will determine our rewards in eternity. (Acts 16:3; Romans 10:9-10, 14:10-12; II Corinthians 5:10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; James 2:18)
  • D) Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead. They will burn in the lake of fire. (Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15)

5. Baptism in water is a declaration to the world that a believer has died with Christ and that they have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28-19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4)
6. All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to the command of Jesus Christ. With this comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. This experience is distinct from the experience of the new birth. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8, 2:38-39, 10:1-48, 11:14-16, 15:7-9; I Corinthians 12:1-13; Ephesians 5:18)
7. All the offices and gifts of the Holy Spirit are valid and operational in the Body of Christ today. (Hebrews 13:8; I Corinthians 12,13,14; Ephesians 4:11-13; Romans 12:3-8)
8. The Church is the Body of Christ. Each believer is an integral part. (Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)
9. Jesus has provided for and the Scripture exhorts every believer toward prosperity in every area of life:

  • A) Spiritual – I John 3:3, 11; II Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-10
  • B) Mental – II Timothy 1:7; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3
  • C) Physical – Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; I Peter 2:24
  • D) Financial – III John 1:2; Malachi 3:10:11; Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6-10; Deuteronomy 28:1-14

10. All believers have a blessed hope. Jesus is coming again to gather all His saints to Heaven. (I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; II Thessalonians 2:1)
11. The Millennial Reign of Jesus: the return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His saints from Heaven to rule and reign for one thousand years on earth as the Scripture promised. After this reign, there will be a new heaven and a new earth. (Romans 11:25, 27; Ii Thessalonians 1:7; Revelation 19:11-16, 20:1-7, 21)
