Statement of Faith

God is Love and He loves all people, it’s His desire to reach out to man and demonstrate His Love to the world
(1 John 4:16, Romans 5:18)

There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
(John 10:30, John14:26, Philippians 2:5-7)

The Bible is the infallible word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit and contains every answer to man’s problems
(2 Timothy 3:16, 17)

Man is created in the image of God, but is separated by sin. We have the opportunity to have a personal relationship with God through God’s free gift to man, Jesus, who gives us salvation. By confessing our sin and believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God in Heaven.
(Genesis 1:26, John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8,9, Romans 3:24)

We believe in water baptism as was taught and demonstrated by Jesus
(Matthew 28:19, Matthew 3: 13-17)

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a gift from God to empower the believer to develop Christ-like character and to accomplish God’s will for everyday life.
(Acts 2:4)

God gives all believers spiritual gifts to strengthen and build up the church, the gifts of the spirit are active and relevant today.
(1 Corinthians 12:4-11)

We believe that Jesus heals and is active in the lives of people today through physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration
(Acts 10:38)

The Bible describes hell as a place of suffering and permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
(Revelation 20:12-15)

We believe that Jesus will return for and receive all believers to spend eternity with Him.
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-17)
