STATEMENTS OF FAITH

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He was crucified and buried, and on the third day he arose from the dead and ascended to His seat at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
  • We believe there are three persons in the Godhead (trinity): God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that there is only one way to God and that is through His Son Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God; therefore all are in need of redemption.
  • We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ is the source of our redemption as well as a powerful weapon against our enemy.
  • We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God inspired by God. We believe that faith is action on the Word of God.
  • We believe in water baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and in the name of Jesus. We believe in the power and authority of the name of Jesus.
  • We believe in divine healing. Jesus is the healer and by His stripes we were healed.
  • We believe that all of the gifts of the Spirit in Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, and Ephesians 4 are available today to empower the church, including gifts of tongues, healings, and working of miracles.
  • We believe in the rapture; that the dead in Christ will rise first and that those that are alive and remain shall be caught up to meet Jesus in the air.
  • We believe that after death, eternal life is spent either with God in heaven or apart from God in hell; where one spends eternity is based on one’s relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in tithing and giving offerings. We also believe in giving alms and caring for the poor, sick, homeless, etc.
