What We Believe

Here are some of the basics about what we believe.

God

God is the Father and Creator of all things. He is eternal existing in three personalities: God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The Bible

The Bible is the indisputable and infallible word of God written by men influenced by the Holy Spirit. The word of God is profitable for doctrine, correction, and guidance for the believer.

Salvation

Salvation is the work of redemption to the sinner. Originally created to be in relationship with God, mankind defied Him by going their own independent way, resulting in alienation from Him and the innate inability to please God. This fall took place at the beginning of human history; since then, all people have suffered these consequences and are in need of the saving grace of God.
The salvation of humanity is completely a work of God’s free grace; it is not in any way the result of human works or goodness. Each person can receive salvation by repentance and faith. God’s Word assures individuals that He will continue His saving work in them forever.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God and Co Equal with the Father. His death was the atonement for the sins of the world. His resurrection was not only the fulfillment of prophecy but provision for the redemption of men from sin.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present to bring men into repentance by the acknowledgement of sin. The Holy Spirit guides the believer into all truth and equips him to witness.

Baptism

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward commitment to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe the decision to be baptized is up to the individual and that he or she must fully understand what it means to be a Christ follower.

5-Fold Ministry

We believe in the 5-fold ministries (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers) to equip believers in Christ to do the work of service.
