What We Believe
Statement of Faith
believe in the Holy Trinity—one God, eternally existing in Three
Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in one God the Father,
creator of heaven and earth, of all things seen and unseen.
believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally
begotten of the Father. All things were made through Him and for Him.
He is true God and true man. He was conceived by the power of the Holy
Spirit, and was born of the virgin Mary. He suffered, died, was buried,
and on the third day He rose from the dead. He ascended to the right
hand of the Father, and He will return to judge the living and the
dead. His kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy
Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who eternally proceeds from the
Father. He is Teacher, Comforter, Helper, and Giver of spiritual gifts.
Through Him the saving and sanctifying works of Jesus Christ are
applied to the life of believers. He is the empowering Presence of God
in the life of the Christian and the Church. The Father has sent His
Son to baptize with the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues and bearing
the fruit of the Spirit are New Testament signs of being filled with
the Holy Spirit.
We believe that salvation is by grace through
faith in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross; and that
He died in our place. The believer’s sins are forgiven by the shedding
of His blood. We believe that healing of mind, body, soul, and spirit
is available to the believer through the blood of Jesus Christ and the
power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the grace of God
brings forgiveness and reconciliation to those who repent, as well as
transformation in holiness, enabling them to live a Christ-like life.
Sanctification is both a definite work of grace and a lifelong process
of change in the believer brought by the blood of Jesus, the Word of
God, and the enabling power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in
one holy, universal Church, composed of all true believers in Jesus
Christ, offering fellowship and calling for service to men and women of
all races, nations, cultures, and languages. We believe in the
spiritual and ultimate visible unity of the Church.
that the Bible—both Old and New Testaments—is the inspired Word of God.
The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself and His will to humankind,
sufficient for instruction in salvation and daily Christian living. The
Bible is the Christian’s rule of faith and practice.
believe that God will ultimately reconcile all things in heaven and
earth in Christ. Therefore, we look forward to new heavens and a new
earth in which righteousness dwells.

Our Core Values:
values are operating philosophies or principles that guide our internal
conduct as well as our relationship with the external world. Our
core values must ring true as flowing from eternal precepts. We must
feel the authority of God's breath upon them. They cannot be the better
among the rest. They must speak with the urgency of a mandate from God
for our church. Our Core values are Love, Prayer, Developinig
Leaders, Biblical Stewardship and Harvest, and we feel this strongly
about our core
values. Loving Relationships, Prayer, Developingt Biblical
Harvest are anchored in the pages of the New Testament, the life of
Christ, the pattern of the early church and the needs of the hour for
God’s Kingdom to come and His will done on earth as it is in
Heaven. Clearly God has called us to set aside all distractions
and lesser priorities so that we all may pour our energies and
resources into Loving Relationships, Prayer, Developing Leaders,
Biblical Stewardship and
Harvest in this special time.
