Our Mission

To impassion hearts, renew minds, and empower people 

through the love of Christ and the transforming Word of God.

 Statement of Faith

..

Section 1 - One True God existing as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all that is seen and unseen.  Intelligent design, not chance or evolution brought about the beauty and glory of all creation.

We believe in His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who for us and our salvation, came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit, He was born of a virgin, and became a man.

By the anointing of the Holy Spirit, Jesus led a holy, blameless, and miraculous life demonstrating the will of God to mankind through the words He spoke and the wondrous works He performed.

Section 2 - The Scriptures Inspired

We believe the sixty-six books of the Holy Bible to be God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.  [1 Timothy 3:16-17]

Section 3 - The Salvation of Man

We believe that all men have sinned, and cannot attain the righteous life God requires nor pass through God’s judgment on their own merit.  So, for our sake, Jesus was crucified, died and was buried.  The punishment for our sins was taken on Him so He descended into hell, but on the third day He rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures.  He ascended into heaven making atonement for our sins as He sprinkled His blood on the Mercy Seat.  Now He is seated at the right hand of the Father.

By believing in our heart that God, the Father, raised Jesus from the dead and by confessing Jesus is Lord, we gain salvation:  forgiveness of sins, new life, entrance into the kingdom of heaven, physical healing, protection, freedom from lack, and a host of other great and precious promises, outlined for us in the Scriptures, available to us on earth.

Section 4 – The Gifts and Operations of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who empowered Jesus to live a just and holy life bringing glory to the Father.  He has been sent to do the same through us by the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, a separate and subsequent event to the New Birth, and evidenced by speaking in tongues.  The Holy Spirit’s manifestations, operative through Jesus and described in 1 Corinthians 12-14, are available to believers today and are to be used in the work of the ministry to bring the whole world to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

Section 5 – The Body of Christ

We believe the Body of Christ consists of those who have believed and called on the Name of Jesus, trusting in His finished work on the cross for their salvation, not trusting in their own works or righteousness but only that which He grants through faith.

Section 6 – Redeemed from the Curse

We believe that the curse of the law written in Deuteronomy 28 has been carried by Jesus, and that we do not have to suffer any of it (poverty, sickness, and calamity).

Section 7 – Water Baptism

We believe water baptism in Jesus Name is a public acknowledgment of our death to the old life of sin and rebirth into new life in union with Him.

Section 8 – Faith and Preaching

We believe the the gifts and blessings Jesus purchased for us through His passion are received by faith.

We believe that God desires for all men to be saved, and it is through the preaching and teaching of the Gospel that faith comes and men are converted.

Section 9 – Heaven and Hell

We believe there is only one King and Ruler of heaven, and His name is Jesus; and only those who call on His name will enter His Kingdom for eternity.  Those who refuse and reject faith in Him will go to the only alternative to His presence:  hell, the place prepared for satan and his angels.

Section 10 – The Spirit-Filled Christian Life

We believe that Christians living on the earth who have received the fullness of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit can live on this earth in full communion with God, speaking and conversing with Him in prayer, praise, worship, study, and meditation on the Word.  His children know His voice and hear His voice.  We are guided and taught by His Holy Spirit through the reading of the Scriptures.

Section 11 – The Fellowship of the Saints

We believe that the fellowship of the saints on the earth is vital to the successful completion of God’s purpose for each child of God.  God has provided this in the local body of believers called the church.  Neglect of the assembly and fellowship of the saints can lead to spiritual dullness and loss of the awareness of His presence.

Section 12 – The Kingdom of God

We look forward to His Gospel being preached to all the world and His soon return, the resurrection of the dead, and the establishment of His unending kingdom.
