What We Believe

 

 VISION & MISSION

 MINISTRY PROTOCOLS

 

On the Bible

We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative written Word of God.

 

On God

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

 

On Jesus

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His bodily future return.

 

On Salvation

We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and that God gives salvation as a gift of His grace. We believe that accepting and confessing Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God and asking Him to forgive our sins result in a re-conception and regeneration of our lives, as the seed of God’s light enters our spirit (Galatians 3:19; 1 John 3:9). This results in new birth as we become new creations in Him. This new birth or being “born again” does not make our decisions and actions immediately perfect; it is the beginning of a new way of life that allows God, in His faithfulness, to conform us to His nature (Romans 5:10; Philippians 1:6).

 

On Original Sin

We believe that all mankind is born separated from God and each person must personally place faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.

 

On Spiritual Warfare

We believe there is a real devil and demons, that Jesus Christ defeated them through the cross and those believers are called to enforce that victory.

 

On the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it. Every believer can be empowered by the Holy Spirit to exercise the Gifts of the Spirit and continue the ministry of Jesus on the earth. We believe the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is an additional impartation that empowers, strengthens, comforts, and is usually accompanied by the manifestations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s life. These gifts are available to all who believe. Baptism in the Holy Spirit endues and transforms the believer to increasingly take on more of the nature of Christ. We accept, acknowledge, encourage, and seek all gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit. They are present, active, and vital in aiding the Church and the advancement of the glorious Kingdom of God. We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to

live a holy life.

 

On Eternal Judgment

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.

 

On the Five Fold Ministry

We believe that the church is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets and that

evangelists, pastors, and teachers are necessary to fully disciple the church and equip the saints for the work of the ministry.

 

On Gifts of Healing

We believe the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the body, soul, and spirit in answer to believing prayer.

 

On the Lord’s Supper

We believe and acknowledge the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper in remembrance of Jesus and His crucifixion for the remission of our sins. He was the Passover Lamb and fulfilled the Feast of Passover. We believe the Lord’s Supper is a holy ordinance and that it testifies of our union with Him and of the remission of our sins through His sacrifice on the Cross. Partaking of the Lord’s Supper in a corporate or church setting also testifies of our relationship with each other as the Body of Christ. (Luke 22:17-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

 

On the Purpose of Faith

We believe true faith is born in a believer’s heart and not just in his or her mind. God requires us to exercise faith for our salvation as well as for all other issues in His Kingdom. We focus on God’s infinite nature; His desire is for our good. We grow to see that all things eternal happen through faith in God.

 

Our faith activates the movement of the Holy Spirit. Only the Holy Spirit of God will reveal the Son of God, and only the Son can reveal the Father. This is the Kingdom process. Eternal change can only happen as the Spirit of God initiates the Kingdom processes; thus the Holy Spirit moves and convicts the heart of mankind. Neither the eloquence of speech nor the passionate presentation of the Gospel can activate the Kingdom process and eternally change the hearts of men and women. It is God who draws us to Himself, it is He who manifest His presence in our midst.

 

On Water Baptism

We believe that water baptism should be by immersion and consummated immediately after committing to the Lordship of Jesus and His atoning sacrifice for our sin. This ordinance is a personal and public statement of our faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ on our behalf. It is also commitment to follow His example and lay down our lives for the sake of His Kingdom. (Mark 1:9, Mark 16:16)
