We believe that every believer must have a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, for apart from Him we can do nothing. Each person has a ministry from God that no one else can fill. We are to instruct, teach, exhort, and admonish believers in the ways of God
John 15:1-5 , Hebrews 13:5-6

 

We believe that the Bible is the true infallible Word of God, which cleanses our souls. It holds the words of eternal life and the keys of the Kingdom of God. The Bible shows us God's principles and standards for living; and it is the food that sustains us in all circumstances. - John 1:14 , 2 Timothy 3:16-17 , 1 John 2:5-6

We believe that we are to wash and renew our minds daily by the Word of God. - Titus 3:5 & Ephesians 5:26

 

We must learn His ways and exchange our way of thinking for His. We are to be conformed to the Kingdom of God by the molding and shaping of His Hands. - Romans 12:1-2 , Ephesians 4:23-29 , Philippians 4:8

 

We believe in justification by faith. We believe that salvation is free and apart from any work of man is a result of the sovereign grace of God. - Eph 2:8-9 , Gal 5:5 , Rom 5:1

 

We believe in worshipping the Lord in spirit, song, dance and with the raising of our hands. We believe that we are to praise and worship Him with our whole being. - Psalm 150:1-6, John 4:24

We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that it is God's will to heal and deliver His people today as He did in the days of the first Apostles. It is by the stripes of Jesus that we are healed, delivered and made whole. We have authority over sickness, disease, demons, curses, and every circumstance in life.- Luke 10:19 , 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 , 1 Peter 2:24

 

"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature... And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons;they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." - Mark 16:15-18

We believe that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-8) to indwell and empower His body to complete the work of bringing the earth under the dominion of His Kingdom. We believe that salvation is an ongoing process to bring all three parts of man’s nature spirit, soul, and body (1 Thess. 5:23)—into perfection. Complete salvation, therefore, comes in three distinct levels: Justification (spirit), Sanctification (soul), and Glorification (body).

 

We believe that the laws, statutes, and judgments in the Bible are the divine revelation defining sin and righteousness (1 John 3:4; Rom. 7:7), and that violation of these laws are cause for repentance or judgment. Other standards of righteousness, such as love (John 15:12) and faith (Rom. 14:23) are general principles which the specific statutes help us to define the will of God and apply the law in a more practical way.

 

We believe that the law cannot justify sinners (Ex. 34:7; Rom. 3:19, 20), and that therefore, Justification before the law is only possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:8) who paid for our sins by His death on the cross.

We believe that Jesus Christ will return in bodily form and establish His kingdom on earth, in its fullest form, and then rule & reign over all creation. There will be a final judgement of the wicked at the end of history and those whose name is not found in the lamb's book of life shall be cast into the lake of fire. Whoever has been born again will have eternal life and spend it with the Lord Jesus Christ.
