what we believe
God:  We believe and teach that there is one true and living God, who is infinite in power, Holy in nature, attribute and purpose. He is Omnipotent (all-powerful), Omniscient (all-knowing), Omnipresent (everywhere present), is the creator and preserver of all things and was revealed to us as Father in creation, Son in redemption and the Holy Spirit in his comforting grace. 
 
The Bible:  We believe and teach that the Bible (Old and New Testament) is the inspired and infallible Word of God recorded by holy men of God as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. It reveals the will of God for the salvation of all people and the divine and final authority for the Christian life and faith. 
 
Jesus Christ:  We believe and teach that Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of God. He is True God and true man, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is the only way to God. His death on the cross is the complete and final sacrifice for our sins; he rose bodily from the dead and ascended to heaven where he is our high priest and mediator. 
 
The Holy Spirit:  We believe and teach that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God who convicts men of sin, regenerate the sinner, indwells, comforts, sustains instructs, and empower the believer to live Christ like living and service. 
 
Man:  We believe and teach that God created man in his own image and free of sin, but because of disobedience fell from his original state of righteousness into sin and lost his relationship with God. 
 
Salvation:  We believe and teach that salvation is God’s plan to deliver people from sin and is obtained through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
 
The Church:  We believe and teach that the Church is composed of all people who have confessed Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior, have been regenerated and baptized by the Holy Spirit and live in obedience to the word of God.
 
Baptism:  We believe and teach that soon after accepting God’s plan of salvation the believer must be baptized in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38) and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit speaking in unknown tongue as the spirit gives utterance.
 
The New Life: We believe and teach that the goal of every believer should be a daily pursuit of Godly living and a Holy life which is to live in obedience to the word of God.
 
Worship:We believe and teach that believers are to gather together and worship God in spirit and in truth by; singing, dancing, clapping and raising our hands, and the playing musical instruments.
 
Healing: We believe and teach that God, through the shed blood and stripes of Jesus Christ will heal and deliver all who will come to him in faith and obedience from every sickness and disease.
 
Second Coming: We believe and teach the visibly and bodily pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to earth to catch away (Rapture) a holy people (The Church) who accepted his death, burial and resurrection as sufficient payment for their sin and are born of the Water and the Spirit and found living faithfully and obediently when he comes.
 
Resurrection: We believe and teach that there will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead both just and unjust to be judged according to the life they lived.
 
Judgment: We believe and teach that all people will appear before the judgment seat of Jesus Christ; the righteous to receive eternal life of blessedness and joy with Christ and the unrighteous to eternal punishment.
 
Ordinances: We believe that there are only two ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament. 1) Baptism which is the immersion of the believer in water, whereby he/she obeys Christ’s command and sets forth his identification with Christ in his death, burial and resurrection. 2) The lord’s supper which is the memorial wherein the believer partakes of the two elements, bread and fruit of the vine which symbolize the Lord’s body and shed blood, proclaiming His death until He comes.
 
Marriage: We believe marriage has only one meaning: the uniting of one biological man and one biological woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only within the confines of marriage. Because marriage is a covenant between one man, one woman and God, the church has the responsibility, in its sole discretion, to evaluate the readiness of those seeking to enter into the marriage covenant. The church may decline to solemnize or host a marriage ceremony that is contrary to the church’s belief. (Gen. 1:26-28; 2: 24; Math. 19:1010; Ephesians 5:22-23; Hebrews 13:4).
