What We Believe

  • We believe:

    that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ, God’s only begotten son, who being fully man and fully God, was conceived by Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, suffered and was crucified on a cross for our full salvation (spirit, mind, and body); was sent to Hell, only to rise from the grave three days later, thereby becoming the prefect sacrifice, and is now seated in Heaven at the Father’s right hand to make intercession for the saints. [Matthew 1:18–25; John 1:1–18; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:1–28; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:10–14; Ephesians 1:7; Philippians 2:6–11; Colossians 1:15–23; Hebrews 7:25, 9:13–15 and 10:19; 1 Peter 2:21–25; 1 John 2:1–2]
  • We believe:

    that love is the driving force of all of God’s activity in the earth. That He passionately desires communion with His people, and this is the reason for the sacrificial offering of His Son Jesus on the cross. Love is also the driving force of His Bride in the earth and that anything that does not spurn from love is an utter waste of time for His love, and His love alone, is what distinguishes a true disciple of Jesus from any other religion on the planet. [John 3:16; John 13:35; 1 Corinthians 13; 1 John 4: 7-21]
  • We believe:

    in the literal second coming of Jesus at the end of the age when He will return to Earth personally and visibly to consummate His Kingdom. We also believe in and are praying for a great end-time harvest of souls and the emergence of a victorious Church that will experience an unprecedented unity, purity and power in the Holy Spirit. We believe in the ever increasing government of God and in the blessed hope which is the glorious, visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for his overcoming bride, His church. [Psalms 2:7–9 and 22:27–28; John 14:12 and 17:20–26; Romans 11:25–32; 1 Corinthians 15:20–28, 50–58; Ephesians 4:11–16; Philippians 3:20–21; 1 Thessalonians 4:13–5:11; 2 Thessalonians 1:3–12; Revelation 7:9–14]
  • We believe:

    in the Holy trinity. We believe that God the Father, Jesus, His son, and Holy Spirit are one God, equal in deity, power, and glory. [Psalm 104 and 139; Matthew 10:29–31 and 28:19; Acts 17:24–28; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 1:9–12 and 4:4-6; Colossians 1:16–17; Hebrews 1:1–3; Revelation 1:4–6] We believe that God is the creator of all, that he created us in His own image,and that we were made to worship Him and Him alone, but that God has also given us free will and because of this, sickness,death, and judgment have entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin. [Genesis 1–3; Psalm 51:5; Isaiah 53:5; Romans 3:9–18 and 5:12–21; Ephesians 2:1–3] We believe that Jesus is the way, the truth and the light and that no one comes to the Father, except through Him. We believe that the Lord Jesus baptizes believers in Holy Spirit, in whom we are also sealed for the day of redemption. Holy Spirit regenerates, forever indwells, and graciously equips every believer for godly living and service. Subsequent to conversion, Holy Spirit desires to fill, empower and anoint believers for ministry and witness. We also believe that signs and wonders, as well as all the gifts of Holy Spirit described in the New Testament, are operative today and are designed to testify to the presence of the Kingdom and to empower and edify the Church to fulfill its calling and mission [Matthew 3:11; John 1:12–13 and 3:1–15; Acts 4:29–30;Romans 8:9 and 12:3–8; 1 Corinthians 12:12–13; 2 Corinthians 1:21–22; Galatians 3:1–5; Ephesians 1:13–14 and 5:18]
  • We believe:

    that the sixty-six books of the Bible are the inspired, and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. The Bible is the final authority for all we believe and how we are to live. [Matthew 5:18; John 10:35 and 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16–17; 2 Peter 1:20–21]
  • We believe:

    that Satan, originally the great and good angel Lucifer, rebelled against God, taking a multitude of angels with him. He was cast out of God's presence and is at work with his demonic hosts to establish his counter-kingdom of darkness, evil and unrest on Earth. Satan was judged and defeated at the cross of Christ and will, at the end of the age, be cast forever into the lake of fire which has been prepared for him and his angels. Satan is not the opposite of God for God has no opposite.[Isaiah 14:10–17; Ezekiel 28:11–19; Matthew 12:25–29 and 25:41; John 12:31 and 16:11; Ephesians 6:10–20; Colossians 2:15; 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6; Revelation 12:7–9 and 20:10]
  • We believe:

    that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. No ordinance, ritual, work or any other activity on the part of man is required or accepted in order to receive salvation. This saving grace of God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, also sanctifies us by enabling us to do what is pleasing in God's sight in order that we might be progressively conformed to the image of Christ. [John 1:12–13, 6:37–44 and 10:25–30; Acts 16:30–31; Romans 3–4 and 8:1–17, 31-39 and 10:8–10; Ephesians 2:8–10; Philippians 2:12–13; Titus 3:3–7; 1 John 1:7, 9]
  • We believe:

    that water baptism and the Lord's Supper are the two ordinances of the Church to be observed until the time of Christ's return. They are not a means of salvation, but are channels of God's sanctifying grace and blessing to the faithful in Christ Jesus. [Matthew 26:26–29 and 28:19; Romans 6:3–11; 1 Corinthians 11:23–34; 1 Peter 3:21
  • We believe:

    that the church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus the Christ. We believe that the Church is God's primary instrument through which He is fulfilling His redemptive purposes in the earth. To equip the saints for the work of ministry, God has given the Church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. We also affirm the priesthood of all believers and the importance of every Christian being joined with and actively involved in a local community of the saints. We believe that women, no less than men, are called and gifted to proclaim the Gospel and do all the works of the Kingdom. [Matthew 16:17–19; Acts 2:17–18, 42; Ephesians 3:14–21 and 4:11–16; 1 Timothy 2:11–15; Hebrews 10:23–25; 1 Peter 2:4–5 and 9–10]
  • We believe:

    that God has called the Church to preach the Gospel to all nations. To remember the poor, widows, and orphans and to minister to their needs through sacrificial giving and practical service. We believe that we are not limited to the four walls of a building, and that our influence is not restricted by location. This ministry is an expression of the heart of the Lord Jesus Christ and is an essential part of the Kingdom of God. We believe in raising up world changers, not tour guides; to train commandos, not assemble committees; to be infectious instead of innocuous, contagious instead of quarantined, and unrelenting instead of passive. Isaiah 58:6–12 and 61:1; Matthew 5–7, 28:18–20; Luke 4:18 and 21:1–4; Galatians 2:10; 1 Timothy 6:8; James 1:27]
  • We believe:

    that when the Christian dies they pass immediately into the blessed presence of Christ, there to enjoy conscious fellowship with the Savior until the day of the resurrection and glorious transformation of the body. The saved will then forever dwell in blissful fellowship with their great triune God. We also believe that when the unbeliever dies they are consigned to Hell, there to await the Day of Judgment when they shall be punished with eternal, conscious and tormented separation from the presence of God in the lake of fire. [Matthew 25:46; Luke 16:19–31; John 5:25–29; 1 Corinthians 15:35–58; 2 Corinthians 5:1–10; Philippians 1:19–26 and 3:20–21; 2 Thessalonians 1:5–10; Revelation 20:11–15 and 21:1–22:15]
