Statement of Faith

We 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.

We 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.

We believe 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.

​We 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:

Core 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 Stewardship and 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.
