WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, written by God's revelation to holy men of old as they were moved by Holy Spirit. Matchless and incomparable in every way, God’s Word is the basis for life and the key to advancement.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
We believe in the one true and living God who is infinite in power and holy in nature, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. All persons of the Trinity are omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), and omnipresent (everywhere).
John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7
We believe salvation is the gift of God and that it can only be obtained through Jesus Christ. By grace and through the confession of faith are we saved. Salvation is the gift of eternal life promised to all believers.
Romans 10:9-10; Acts 4:12; John 3:16; Romans 3:24; Romans 5:1; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8–10
We believe that water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, is the way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of our Savior. Baptism is a symbolic burial through water immersion by which the new Christian publicly declares death to sin and life to Christ. It gives testimony to the inward new birth (being born again) and is a clear commitment to turn from the former way of living.
Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4
THE BAPTISM OF HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the baptism of Holy Spirit is the work whereby the Spirit of God places the believer into union with Christ and into union with other believers in the body of Christ at the moment of salvation. The Baptism of Holy Spirit is a gift from God, who helps empower the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God's will.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Acts 2:4
We believe the sacrament of Holy Communion is an ordinance instituted by Jesus Christ to be observed in remembrance of death, burial, resurrection, and ultimate triumph.
1 Corinthians 11:23-34; Luke 22:19-20
We believe in the sovereign rule, reign and authority of God in the life of believers. We believe the Kingdom of God is manifested within us and in the earth as we faithfully obey Christ and His teachings.
Matthew 6:33; Mark 4:30; Luke 12:31-32; Luke 13:18
We believe that godly, holy living should characterize the life of every born-again believer.
Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:15–16
We believe that God gives all believers spiritual gifts for the strengthening of His people and proof of His existence and power to unbelievers. As the gifts of the Spirit were active and relevant in Jesus’ day, so are they today.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10
We believe that Jesus Christ, through His suffering and death, provided comprehensive healing for the body and salvation for the soul. We believe that acts of divine healing occur today as they did in the day of Christ.
Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35, Acts 10:38
We believe that giving is God’s financial plan for the development and building of His Kingdom. Through tithes, offerings, missions, and benevolence, believers not only support the Church universal, but also care for the world to demonstrate God’s intention for humanity.
1 Chronicles 29:14; Proverbs 3:9; Malachi 3:8-10; Matthew 6 Luke 6:38;
