What We Believe

STATEMENT OF FAITH

WE BELIEVE the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Divinely inspired Word of God and accept them as our final authority on faith and doctrine.

WE BELIEVE in one God eternally existing in three Persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.

WE BELIEVE in the Deity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, in His miracles, His atoning and substitutionary death, His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father.

WE BELIEVE in the personal return of Jesus Christ. We believe in the “blessed hope,” that is, the catching away of the church at His Second Coming.

WE BELIEVE that man was created in God’s image and, in his natural state, is fallen and away from God, separated by sin from God forever.

WE BELIEVE that personal regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation. This experience, which the Bible refers to as a New Birth, is an experience of Grace, through Faith, freely performed by the Holy Spirit to as many as accept Jesus Christ as Savior and follow Him as Lord.

WE BELIEVE in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This endowment of power is available to all believers who ask for it with the evidences and manifestations described in 1Cor. 12. We support the operation of the gifts of the Spirit.

WE BELIEVE there shall be a bodily resurrection of all the dead, just and unjust, the unjust shall go away into everlasting punishment and the just (saved) to eternal life (bliss).

WE BELIEVE in the necessity of Water Baptism for all believers and Communion as instituted and commanded by the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Our Vision

The first step in understanding who we are is to understand our Vision. The Vision for our ministry represents the reason for our existance and is a key goal of all the ministries of the church. As Senior Pastor, is it my responsibility to be sure to “stay the course” to pursue and accomplish this God given vision.

Our Vision is to establish a New Testament Covenant Community of believers who share our common vision of Discovering Meaning, Finding Purpose and Changing the World. That is, we believe that New Life begins when we discover Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. Once we are “born-again” of the Spirit, that life begins.

As we make a deliberate decision to become disciples of Christ, following His Commandments and Teachings, we will discover the true meaning of life and why we were created. Part of that discovery involves finding out what our spiritual giftings are and striving to develop them as we use them in the church and our community.

Knowing the Purpose for which we were created, we can now move out, fulfilling the Great Commission and impact our families, communities and, ultimately, the world. This sinful world system, and those who are trapped in it, will become transformed as we establish the Kingdom of God and displace
the kingdom of darkness, everywhere we go, in everything we do.
