About Us:  Statement Of Faith

The Scriptures. The Bible is the divine revelation of God, imparted to man through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is infallible and given to man for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness so that God′s people may mature and accomplish the will of God in the earth. (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:23-25)

The Godhead. There is only one True and Living God made up of three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. All are co-equal and co-eternal. (John 1:1-5, 10-14; Matthew 28:18-20)

Man, His Fall, and Redemption. God created man in His image, perfect and without sin. God created man for fellowship with Him, but man rebelled against God and took on the nature of sin. The only way for man to be restored back to fellowship with the Father is through Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:1-5, 10-14; Matthew 28:18-20)

The Salvation of Man. The sin nature separates man from God, and man′s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Those who desire to be saved must believe that Jesus died for their sin and rose again; accept the washing away of their sin by the blood of Jesus; and invite Jesus into their heart and confess Him as their Lord and Savior. (Romans 3:24, 10-18; 10:8-10)Salvation is an act of grace by which one receives not only forgiveness for sin, but also a new nature—the nature of Christ. Salvation cannot be earned or merited through works; it is a free gift from God to everyone of every race, color, or creed who receives Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. (Psalm 103:3; Ephesians 2:8)

Healing. Jesus took all of our sickness, disease, and infirmities into His own body on the cross so that we would not have to bear them. A believer can access the grace of God through faith for healing, receive divine health for his or her own body, and believe for the healing of others as well. (I Peter 2:24; Mark 16:17-18)

Sanctification. Once a person is born again, he or she should endeavor to live a life that is pleasing to God according to His Word and walk after righteousness, earnestly seeking after God and endeavoring to walk in their new nature, putting away the things of the old, sin nature. (Romans 5:17, 12:2; II Corinthians 7:1)

Water Baptism. Baptism in water is a physical action symbolizing a believer′s putting off of the old, sin nature and being identified with Jesus′ death; and then the putting on of the new nature and being identified with Jesus′ resurrection to the newness of life. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Acts 10:47-48)

Communion–The Lord′s Supper. Communion is an act of remembrance of Jesus′ body being broken and His blood being shed for the sins of the world. (I Corinthians 11:24-25, 28)

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit. There is a second work of grace, after a person is born again, in which the Holy Spirit pours Himself into the born-again person′s spirit. It is the infilling of the Holy Spirit that brings the power of God to a believer. (Acts 2:38, 10:44-46, 19:2; Galatians 5:16-26)The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues is a gift of God that should be earnestly sought after as evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit. This supernatural prayer language is what propels a believer into a greater walk of fellowship with God and a greater walk of victory. (Acts 1:8, 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2, 6; Galatians 5:16-26)

The Church. The Church is the Body of Christ made up of people redeemed by Christ. Every member of the Church plays a vital role in the fulfillment of God′s will on the earth. (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)

Jesus′ Return. Jesus is coming back to earth to gather those who have been born again to live with Him forever. (I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians 4:16-17)

Eternal Punishment. Anyone who has not received Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God and will receive eternal punishment with the devil and all his followers. (Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15)
