WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe ministry is going to look different in the last days.  Miracles, signs and wonders will be commonplace again to make Jesus famous, so His name will spread across the world (Matt 9:26).  

Statement of faith

 

the godhead

There is one True and Living God made up of three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. All are co-equal and

co-eternal. (John 1:1-5, 10-14; Matthew 28:18-20)

the bible

The Bible is the inspired word of God, imparted to man by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is infallible and given to man for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, so that God′s people may mature and accomplish His will on the earth. (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:23-25)

The church

The Church is the Body of Christ made up of people redeemed by Christ. Every member of the body has a unique calling and plays a vital role in the fulfillment of God′s will on the earth. (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)

The FALL

God created man in His image, perfect and without sin. God created man for fellowship with Him, but man rebelled against God and took on the nature of sin. The only way for man to be restored back to fellowship with the Father is through Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:1-5, 10-14; Matthew 28:18-20)

salvation

Sin separated man from God, and man′s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Those who desire to be saved must believe that Jesus died for their sin and rose again; accept the washing away of their sin by the blood of Jesus; and invite Jesus into their heart and confess Him as their Lord and Savior. (Romans 3:24, 10-18; 10:8-10)

Salvation is an act of grace by which one receives not only forgiveness for sin, but also a new nature—the nature of Christ. Salvation cannot be earned or merited through works; it is a free gift from God to everyone of every race, color, gender, or creed who receives Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. (Psalm 103:3; Ephesians 2:8)

WATER BAPTISM

Baptism in water is a physical action symbolizing a believer′s putting off of their old sin nature becoming identified with Jesus′ death. The believer then puts on the new nature and becomes identified with Jesus′ resurrection to the newness of life.

(Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Acts 10:47-48)

baptism of the holy spirit

All Christians are entitled to and should earnestly seek the Promise of the Father, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. It is the infilling of the Holy Spirit that brings the power of God to a believer. (Acts 2:38, 10:44-46, 19:2; Galatians 5:16-26)

 

Speaking in tongues is a gift of God that should be earnestly sought after as evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit. This supernatural prayer language is what propels a believer into a greater walk of fellowship with God and a greater walk of victory. (Acts 1:8, 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2, 6; Galatians 5:16-26)

Once a person is born again, he should endeavor to live a life that is pleasing to God according to His Word and walk after righteousness. He should earnestly seek after God, endeavoring to walk in his new nature and put away the things of the

old, sin nature. (Romans 5:17, 12:2; II Corinthians 7:1)

SANCTIFICATION

communion

Communion is an act of remembrance of Jesus′ body being broken and His blood being shed for the sins of the world. (I Corinthians 11:24-25, 28)

HEALING

Jesus took all of our sickness, disease, and infirmities into His own body on the cross so that we would not have to bear them. A believer can access the grace of God through faith for healing, and thereby receive divine health for his own body. Furthermore, he can believe for the healing of others. (I Peter 2:24; Mark 16:17-18)

JESUS'S RETURN

Jesus is coming back to earth to gather those who have been born again to live with Him forever. (I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians 4:16-17)

ETERNAL PUNISHMENT

Anyone who has not received Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God and will receive eternal punishment with the devil and all his followers. (Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15)
