What We Believe

THE BIBLE:
The Bible is God’s perfect work, written to us to equip us for every situation we may face in life. The Bible is our final authority from God, and success in life is dependent upon it. (Psalms 119:60 Hebrews 4:12)

SALVATION:
All have sinned, and fallen short of the Glory of God, But God demonstrated His own love towards us, in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. There is one way to heaven, and that is through proclaiming and believing that Jesus is Lord of your Life, and that He died on the cross. (Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8, John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10)

CREATION:
In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth, and everything in it. We also believe that all human life is valuable, and that God has a plan and purpose for each one, before they are even born. (Genesis 1:1, Psalms 139:13-15)

THE TRINITY:
There is One God, the creator of Heaven and Earth, and He exists in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:27)

HOLY SPIRIT:
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, as clearly mentioned throughout scripture. This is a free gift from God, as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers after He rose to Heaven. This is received subsequent to Salvation, and is generally accompanied by the evidence of speaking in tongues. We also believe that Healing is available through the work of the Holy Spirit on this earth. (Matthew 3:11, John 14:16-17, Acts: 2:38-39, Acts 19:1-7 Acts 2:1-4, James 5:14, Mark 16:18, Isaiah 53:4-5)

SANCTIFICATION:
The Bible teaches that without Holiness, no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of sanctification. We believe in Right living, that Grace is not a restaurant tab, in which you can keep sinning and God will pick up the check, but rather that through Christ we desire to live according to God’s principles because of the amazing gift of Salvation and Freedom we have been given. That Grace is an ongoing work, beginning with Salvation, and continuing until we depart for Heaven. (Hebrews 12:14 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 2 Peter 3:18, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Philippians 3:12-14)

BAPTISM:
Baptism in water by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, as Water baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36–39).
