The Bible is God’s Word. It was written by men who were under the inspiration of the Holy spirit. It is true and is intended to spiritually
transform us and guide us through life. (2 Tim 3:16-17).
God is the sovereign ruler and creator of the universe. God is one who eternally exists as three distinct persons:
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin in Bethlehem, lived a sinless life, went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil. He was crucified to offer himself as a sacrifice for our sins. He was buried and rose from the dead on the third day, demonstrating His power over sin and death. He ascended into heaven and sat down to be exalted on the right hand of Majesty on high. He will return soon to establish His Kingdom.
The person of the Holy Spirit works in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He enters our life at salvation and empowers us for life and ministry. The Holy Spirit baptizes when we ask and receive the promise of the Father.
We were created in God’s image to bring him glory and praise. However, man fell into sin and needs salvation,
which can only come through Jesus Christ.
We believe in divine healing provided through Christ’s atonement (1 Peter 2:24). God promises healing (Exo 15:26).
Prayer is the pathway to healing through the anointing with oil and laying hands on the sick in the name of Jesus (James 5:13-15). Healing also means living healthy in every area of life (1 Thess 5:23).
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; they that are saved to the resurrection of life
and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation
Because of our sin, humanity is destined to an eternity without God. The new birth is the only way to eternal life.
Our salvation is possible only by faith in Jesus Christ, apart from works, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus’ promise of eternal life in heaven (John 3:16; 4:1-3). Heaven is a real place and a sure promise (2 Cor 5:1). We face the final judgment with peace and confidence because we will stand before God in the righteousness of Christ (2 Cor 5:21; Rom 5:9; 1 Thess 5:9; 1 John 4:17). We believe in eternal judgment for the ungodly who reject the saving grace of God. (Heb 9:27; Daniel 12:2; John 5:28-29; Rev 20:4-6; 11-15).
When you become a Christian you become part of a larger collective of believers called the church. The church is the vehicle that God uses to display His love and spread His truth to the world. Every believer needs to belong
to a bible believing church.
It is our mandate to share His love with our neighbors, and the world. We do this by giving, serving, praying, going, and supporting others who go.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are active today and available to any believer through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The purpose of these spiritual gifts is for the edification, exhortation, and comfort of the church. Spiritual Gifts include miracles, healing, prophecy, wisdom, knowledge, faith, tongues, interpretation, and discernment, all of which demonstrate the power of God.
Jesus says “Nobody knows the hour or the day” but we are certain of his return and eagerly await the coming king.
We hold that we live in the Last Days.
We believe in the sacraments of holy communion, or the Lord’s Supper, (Matt 26:26-30; 1 Cor 11:23-26) and water baptism as a confession of faith in Christ (Matt 28:19; 1 Peter 3:20-22).
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 into before God.
