WHAT WE BELIEVE
Becoming a Truth and Spirit-filled,
Christ-centered, Apostolic church
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor." Luke 4:18-19
Our mission is to expand the Kingdom of God through preaching of the gospel
one heart at a time,
one family at a time,
one city at a time, and
one nation at a time.
OUR CORE VALUES
"You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand." Psalm 16:11
Christian life is about experiencing God every day of our lives through a personal relationship with Christ and growing together, in kingdom partnership as a community in His presence.
As we seek God together we strive to experience the following:
Encouragement in the TRUTH,
Empowerment of the SPIRIT,
Expectation with FAITH,
Exclamation through WORSHIP.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe the Scriptures, Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original manuscripts, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins, arose bodily from the dead, and ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of God the Father; He is our High Priest and Advocate.
We believe the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, convict men, and regenerate the sinner who will believe, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
We believe man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore totally lost, unable to save himself, and only through the regeneration by the Holy Spirit can he obtain salvation and eternal life.
We believe only those whom God calls in His grace, through no choice of their own, will express faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
We believe the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only those who receive Jesus Christ through faith and repentance become children of God.
We believe water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during this present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.
We believe the true Church is composed of all regenerated believers who are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head.
We believe in the personal and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and this hope has a vital bearing on the present personal life and service of the believer.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the non-believer to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
