Statement of Faith

We Believe:

The Divine Holy Scriptures of the bible, both Old and New Testaments are the inerrant and infallible Word of God. The holy scriptures were inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer that pertains to life and godliness. 2 Timothy 3:16-18; 2 Peter 1:3, 20, 21

In The Trinity; There is only one God, existing eternally in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.John 10:30; 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7

Man is created in the image and likeness of God, but is separated by sin and spiritual death. By one man’s (Adam) disobedience we were made sinners. By one man’s Jesus) obedience we are made the righteousness of God. Without receiving Jesus Christ by faith, as the sacrifice for sin and spiritual death, we cannot have a relationship with God. Genesis 1:26; Romans 5:12-19; Ephesians 2:1-6; 1 Timothy 2:5-6

We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation. Salvation is God’s gift to humanity. It is not based on what we do or don’t do, but it is only available by God’s grace (unmerited favor) through faith in Jesus’ (the Son of God) death, burial, and resurrection. By repenting of sin, and receiving Him by faith as Lord and Savior we can spend eternity with God. Romans 3:24-26; 5:1; 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9

In Water Baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus. It is the way that believers identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

Matthew 3:13-17; 28:19; Romans 6:3-4

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. The Holy Spirit empowers believers to develop the character of Christ, and to live every day in God’s perfect will. The Holy Spirit has given to us a prayer language, to edify and to build us up in our most holy faith. Matthew 3:11; Acts 1:4-8; 2:4; 1 Corinthians 14:1-40; Jude 20

God has given and made available the Spiritual Gifts. They are for the strengthening of God’s people (the body of Christ) to do the work of the ministry and proof of God’s power and existence to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant for/in ministry today. 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10; Mark 16:15-20
God is love. He loves all people. The heart of God is to reach out to the lost, poor, oppressed, widowed, orphaned, sick, diseased, and the broken hearted.
Psalms 68:5-6; Mark 16:15-20; 1 John 4:16

Divine Healing is active today in the lives of people who believe and have faith in Jesus Christ the healer. Healing includes: physical, mental and emotional, and spiritual restoration (spirit, soul, and body). Luke 9:11; Matthew 10:1; 9:35; Acts 10:38; 1 Thessalonians 5:23

The Anointing of the Holy Spirit, which is the burden removing, yoke destroying, power of God. It has been poured out by the Holy Spirit to empower the body of Christ to do the works that Jesus did in order to carry out His ministry in the earth today. The ministry of making people whole (nothing missing, nothing broken). Isaiah 10:27; John 14:12; Acts 1:8; 5:12-16; 10:38

Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God’s character, by His word and His Spirit, develop us to full maturity, which is the image of Christ our destiny. Romans 6:19; 8:29; Galatians 5:22-25;
1 Thessalonians 4:3-4

Marriage is a covenant relationship between one man and one woman only. The covenant relationship of marriage is a holy and honorable union that has been established and ordained by God and God alone. Therefore, the covenant union of marriage can only be defined by God. Genesis 2:23-25; 1 Corinthians 7:1-9; Ephesians 5:21-31

The bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of torment and suffering, and permanent separation from God for all those who die without receiving Jesus as their Lord and Savior. God’s will is that none would perish or be separated from Him for eternity. Therefore, He sent His Son Jesus, born of a virgin, the Lamb of God to be the sacrifice for the fall of man, and to become sin with our sin who knew no sin so that we could become the righteousness of God through Him. John 3:16-18; Romans 6:17-21; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15

Jesus will return, and receive unto Himself all those who by faith received Him as Lord, to be with Him for eternity. Acts: 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:38
