What We Believe

Holy Bible

The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible, and inerrant.
Timothy 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Proverbs 30:5, Romans 16:25-28


There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co- equal and co-eternal.
1 John 5:7, Genesis 1:26, Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19, Luke 1:35, Isaiah 9:6, Hebrews 3:7-11

Jesus Christ 

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind, and thus atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return in power and glory.
John 1:1-14, 20-28, 1 Timothy 3:16, Isaiah 9:6, Philippians 2:5-6, 1 Timothy 2:5

Virgin Birth

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary’s word. Therefore, He is the Son of God!
Matthew 1:18, 25, Luke 1:25, Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:27-35


Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell. His only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7, Romans 5:12-21


Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation.
Acts 2:21, 3:19, 1 John 1:9


Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit to complete the development of Christ’s character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that a Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

1 Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23, 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

Blood of Jesus 

Jesus Christ is the only One who can restore us to God. He is the only Man to be born of a virgin, live a sinless life, died on the cross for mankind, and rose again on the third day. He paid for our sins through His blood and will return in power and glory!
1 John 1:7, Revelation 1:5, 5-9, Colossians 1:20, Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5-9, John 1:29


We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is an unmerited gift from God, not earned by good works or any human effort. Whosoever calls upon Jesus will be saved.
Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10, 13; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22

Water Baptism 

Baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of Jesus and is for believers only. Baptism is an ordinance symbolic of the Christian’s identification with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.
Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48,
Colossians 2:12

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The baptism in the Holy Spirit, as promised by Jesus to all believers, is a gift received subsequent to the new birth (salvation). The baptism in the Holy Spirit enables Christ followers to fully utilize public and private spiritual gifts for the furtherance of the Church and for personal spiritual growth. We believe the evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues.
Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39; 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47; 11:15-17, 19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 14

Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible’s list of these gifts is not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters.

Hebrews 2-4, Romans 1-11, 12:4-8, Ephesians 4:16, 1 Timothy 4:14, 2
Timothy 1:6-7

The Church

The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus’ Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the Church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Matthew 16:18-19, 18:15-20, Acts 2:41-47, 5:11-14, 13:1-3, 14:23, 16:5, 20:28, 1 Corinthians 7:17, Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22, Colossians 1:18, 3:15, 1 Peter 5:1-4, Hebrews 12:23, John 17:11, 20-23, Revelation 21:2-3


Water Baptism: following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new covert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, Mark 15:16, Acts 8:12, 36-38, 10:47-48, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12

The Lord’s Supper: A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (representing the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.  Matthew 26:26-29, 1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25

Marriage: We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a covenant, a sacred bond between one man and one woman, instituted by and publicly entered before God. 
 Matthew 19:4-6


Healing the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. Jesus said that one of the signs to follow believers in Him will be healing. It is also a part of Jesus’ work on the cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit.

Isaiah 53:4-5, Psalm 103:2-3, Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 8:16, 17, Mark 16:17-18, Acts 8:6-7, James 5:14-16, 1 Peter 2:24

God’s Will for Provision

It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy, and successful in all areas of life. Because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on Earth, but that fact should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provision to better serve others.

John 3:3-11, 2 Corinthians 5:17-21, Romans 10:9-10
Mental and Emotional

Timothy 1:7, 2-11, Philippians 4:7-8, Romans 12:2, Isaiah 26:3

Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; Those that are saved to the resurrection of life, and those that are lost, to the resurrection of eternal damnation.
Luke 24:16, 36, 39, John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4, Acts 24:15, 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44, Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21


Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 5:3,12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:24, 2 Corinthians 5:1, Hebrews 11:16, 1 Peter 1:4


After living life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to hell where they will be eternally tormented with the Devil and fallen angels.
Matthew 25:41, Mark 9:43-48, Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8
