What We Believe

What We Believe

There is only one true God…

Who is eternal King one being in three persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  (Deut. 6:4, Matt. 28:19, Mark 12:29)

The Bible is God’s Word…

To humankind that is inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. (2 Tim. 3:15,16)

The Lord Jesus Christ…

Is the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary, and is empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s kingdom on earth. Jesus was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, and on the third day resurrected and ascended into heaven, where He is now alive and making intercession for His church. (Isa. 7:14, Rom. 8:34, Acts 1:10)

Salvation is by God’s grace…

Through faith in the person and the work of Jesus Christ. Believing and receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior judges men and women righteous. (Eph. 2:8,9)

The Holy Spirit…

Is the third person of the Trinity, the comforter and sanctifier of the Church who enables the believer to live holy. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit who empowers us to be ambassadors for Gods kingdom according to Acts 1:8 and Acts 2:1-4.

The Church…

Is a community of believers who have put their faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. The Church is universal, accepting all who have trusted Christ as Lord and Savior. The Church is also a local gathering of believers, who meet regularly with one another to be, encouraged in their gifts, edified in their spirits, and mobilized in their ministry. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, making disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God. We believe the Church is God’s plan for seeing justice and Shalom come to our cities. We believe one cannot separate Jesus from His Church and it is the responsibility of every Christian to be part of a local community of believers. (Matt. 16:18, Acts 9:31, 1 Cor.1:2)

Divine Healing…

Is the perfect will of the Father for His Church that was inaugurated through the redemptive work of Christ on the cross. (Isa. 53:4, Matt.8: 16,17, James 5:13-14)

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit…

Are for today and it should be the desire of every believer to earnestly seek after them for the building up of the body of Christ according to 1 Cor.14:1. (1 Cor.12:4-13, 1 Cor. 14, Rom. 12:4-16)

The Kingdom of God…

Is both a present reality and a future certainty.  We believe that the Kingdom Of God was inaugurated in the first coming of Christ and will be fully consummated in His second coming. We believe that the Church is to be an active agent in pursuing the expansion of the Kingdom of God here on earth.
(Luke 11:20, Mark 14:25, Matt. 12:28, Matt. 3:2)

The Second Coming…

Of Jesus Christ is the eternal hope and coronation of the church triumphant. There will be a new heaven and a new earth and His church will reign with Him. (Acts 24:15, Luke 14:14, Rev. 19:7-9)
