We Believe

The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare his design and plan for mankind.

We Believe

There is only one true God -- revealed in three persons...Father, Son and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

We Believe

In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's Son, Jesus was both human and divine.

We Believe

though originally good, Man willingly fell to sin--ushering evil and death, both spiritual and physical, into the world.

We Believe

Every person can have restored fellowship with God through "Salvation" (accepting Christ's offer of forgiveness of sin).

We Believe

and practice two ordinances...(1 Water baptism by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2 Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.

We Believe

the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.

We Believe

the initial physical evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is "speaking in tongues", as experienced on the day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.

We Believe

Sanctification initially occurs at salvation, and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but is also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christ-like.

We Believe

The Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost to sin. We believe that "the Church" is the body of Christ, and consists of people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of his Son, Jesus Christ.

We Believe

A divinely called and Scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship him with other believers, and to build up or edify the body of believers--the Church.

We Believe

Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today, and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death of the cross for our sins).

We Believe

In the blessed Hope, when Jesus raptures his Church prior to his return to earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christian who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.

We Believe

In The Millennial Reign of Christ, when Jesus returns with His Saints at his second coming and begins his benevolent rule over the earth for 1,000 years. At that time, many in the nation of Israel will accept Him as the Messiah, the Savior who died for them and for all mankind.

We Believe

A final Judgment will take place for all those who have rejected Christ. The will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire.

We Believe

In, and look forward to, the perfect New Heavens and New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with him there forever following His Millennial Reign on the earth. "And so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 4:17(b)).
