What We Believe

  • We believe the Bible, the Holy Scriptures; both the Old and New Testaments is the inspired Word of God. It is without error in the original writings, and is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of all men. It is  the divine and final authority for all Christians.
  • We believe in living free from sin through the teaching of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit that abides in the life of the believer.
  • We believe in the working and functioning of all the spiritual gifts identified in the Bible.
  • We believe that salvation is by faith and is acted upon through your faith in the Word of God.
  • Salvation – The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide justification and salvation for all who believe and receive Jesus Christ by faith. We are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.
  • Repentance – Turning away from being disobedient to God by changing one’s actions to obey the teachings of Jesus Christ. The repentance process consists of feeling sincere regret or sorrow for doing wrong, confessing that one’s life has been in disobedience to God’s way and asking for forgiveness.
  • Confession of Faith – Once repentance takes place, you can now make Jesus Lord of your life.
  • Baptism – Water baptism by immersion in the Name of Jesus soon after accepting Christ as your personal Savior is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life.  This is an outward action of faith displayed by an  inward change.  Baptism is the Biblical way of publicly proclaiming your new faith in Christ and your commitment to follow Him. The action of being immersed in water illustrates being buried with Christ. The action of coming out of the water pictures Christ’s resurrection. Being baptized is identifying with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4).  Baptism is important because it is a step of obedience – publicly declaring faith in Christ and your commitment to Him.
  • Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit in the believer’s life is necessary. The Holy Spirit empowers the believer to produce God’s character.  The Holy Spirit will build into our lives love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control  (Gal. 5:22-23).  When one receives the Holy Spirit the evidence of Him in your life is speaking in another language and bearing the fruit of the Spirit.  God asks us to rely on Him to produce these attributes of the Spirit in our lives. Thus Christians are told to walk in the Spirit (Gal. 5:25) and be filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5:18).  The Holy Spirit empowers Christians to perform ministerial duties and to be tangible witnesses in the earth of God’s life changing power.
