Our Statement of Faith
Trinitarian God: We believe that God is the one true and living God existing eternally as one in substance, three in persons, consisting of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; and that He is a Spirit. Infinite eternal, unchangeable in His love, mercy, power, wisdom and righteousness. (Isaiah 45:22; 40:25-26; John 4:24; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
God: We believe that God is the one true and living God existing eternally as three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and that He is a Spirit. Infinite eternal, unchangeable in his love, mercy, power, wisdom and righteousness. (Isaiah 45:22; 40:25-26; John 4:24; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
Jesus: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the son of God; the second person of the God-head, took upon Himself the form of a man, becoming the God-man, with two distinct natures, and by His atoning work through His death, burial, and resurrection has made salvation possible for man bu His free grace.
We also believe that he became incarnate through his virgin birth; that He willingly gave His life as the perfect and all sufficient substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of man; that he arose from the dead in His physical, glorified body with which He is now seated in heaven making intercession for believers; and that He is coming again in His glorified body to establish the messianic kingdom on earth, having first received the church to be with Himself. (John 1:4, 18; 1 Corinthians 15; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is equal in every attribute of deity with God the Father and with God the Son; that He performs the miracle of the New Birth in those receiving Christ as Saviour; that He is resident now in believers; and that He empowers them for service. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13; 6:10; Ephesians 4:30; Acts 1:5, Titus 3:5)
The Bible: We believe the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of the Living God. The Bible is the final authority on all matters of life, faith, and practice. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:30-31; Matthew 5:18)
The Church: We believe that the Church is the entire body and bride of Christ, composed of all born-again believers from Pentecost to the return of Christ for the Church; and that the local Church is made up of believers existing for fellowship and edification, and for communicating the Gospel to all nations by means of Christian life and witness. (Ephesians 5:23-33; 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10; Acts 2:41-42; 1 Corinthians 12:13)
Man: We believe that man was created in the image of God, but through Adam’s sin, became alienated from God and is condemned to eternal punishment. The only remedy for man’s condition is salvation by personal faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. (John 3:15-18; Ephesians 1:7; Romans 10:9-10)
Angels: We believe that finite supernatural personal beings exists, including fallen angels, is the open and declared enemy of God and ma, and is doomed to the lake of fire. (Hebrews 1:4-14; Jude 6; Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10)
Salvation: We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23), and that repentance is commanded by God, or all and necessary for forgiveness of sin. (Romans 3:23) We believe that salvation comes by the Lord Jesus Christ. The individuals recognizing his own disobedience must turn from sin and seek forgiveness and cleansing from God. The Penitent person is justified and become heir of eternal life on the grounds of the sacrificial and substitutionary death of Jesus Christ.
We believe that salvation is an act of God’s saving grace by the work of the Holy Spirit in regenerating and converting the hearts of men by His free gift of saving faith.
Christian Life: We believe God established a covenant relationship in the blood of Jesus Christ to the new convert. The benefits of this covenant come to those who walk in obedience to Jesus Christ and to the Word of God. He must lead a life of Holiness and witness and service through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Priesthood of the Believer: We believe in the Priesthood of the believer. Through the high priestly ministry of Jesus Christ each Christian has free access to the presence of the Father. Each Christian can enter with confidence and with the faith to worship the Lord, make request of Him, and offer his life sacrificially unto the Lord.
Evangelism: We believe in the evangelization of the world. We accept the commission of Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations, to baptize them, and to teach them to observe His commandments. Hence, the Gospel of the Kingdom must affect first the home, then the neighborhood, the nation, and ultimately the world. We accept this as a personal commission, as well as Church commission. (Matthew 28:19, Acts 1:8)
We believe that revelation is progressive and that there is much more that we will believe as it is revealed by the Holy Spirit and is consistent in harmony with the written Word of God
We believe that there is a heaven as the reward of the Believer beyond death, including a bodily resurrection from the dead. Likewise, there is a hell as the reward of the unbeliever beyond death, including a bodily resurrection to live in everlasting torment and separation from God. (Matthew 25:31-34)
We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ, in eternal damnation in a literal hell for the wicked, and in everlasting life with the living God or the righteous.
We believe that there is a new heaven and a new earth, that will take the place of this physical plain at the return of Christ, to renovate and restore all things to their original created form. (Revelation 21:1-7)
We believe that there is but on Head of the church, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is the responsibility of the church and its institutions to maintain His Lordship over their activities, and not to submit that right to any individual, corporate body, governmental agency or head of state. (John 1:1-12; Revelation 4:11; Hebrew 1:1-5)
We believe that the earth is the Lords’ and the fullness thereof. Everything which appears and has substance in the universe comes from things invisible, creating a merging of the natural and supernatural. When put in their divinely created order, the natural and supernatural are to work together to meet man’s need spiritually, mentally, physically, and financially; and in the family for evangelization of the world for Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, and for the fulfillment of God’s ultimate purpose. (John 1:1-12; Revelation 4:11; Hebrew 1:1-5)
We believe that all born of Christ by His Spirit are the Body of Christ and constitute the true Church. (Matthew 16:18; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 4:3-7)
Everything that was, and is, and is to come, is in God.
We believe that every area of life is to be subjected to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We adhere to a world and life view which seeks to make the Lord Jesus Christ preeminent in all things.
