what we believe
WE BELIEVE IN JESUS
We believe by passionately following Jesus and having a relationship with Him, we are healed, made new, and forgiven. Since Jesus was born in a manger, lived a perfect life, died on the cross, and was raised from the dead anyone who says ‘yes’ to Him can experience a new life. (John 3:16)
WE BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE
We believe in and teach from the Bible. We believe it addresses every question imaginable. We believe the it is inspired, inerrant, infallible, and the complete Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16,17)
WE BELIEVE IN EVANGELISM
We believe every Christ-follower should be responsible for sharing Jesus Christ ( the good news) with others and the world. (Ephesians 1:22,23 , Ephesians 2:22, Hebrews 12:23, Matthew 28)
WE BELIEVE IN THE GODHEAD
We believe in the Godhead. We believe in God: the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit are three-in-one.
(1 John 5:7)
WE BELIEVE IN SIN
We believe that we were all created in the image of God, but because of Adam & Eve's choice to sin, each person is now born sinners. (Romans 5:12)
WE BELIEVE IN SALVATION
We believe, while we are all sinners, Christ died for us, making forgiveness possible. Anyone who believes in Him and confesses Jesus Christ as their Lord can be saved from sin. (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8, Romans 5:8, Romans 10:9,10)
WE BELIEVE IN DISCIPLESHIP
We believe every Christ-follower would pursue living a life that brings glory and honor to God. God wants us to live a holy life and constantly grow in faith. (Hebrews 6:1)
WE BELIEVE IN BAPTISM
We believe in baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of a life changed by Jesus Christ. Jesus set the example to follow. (Matthew 28:19)
WE BELIEVE IN COMMUNION
We believe in celebrating open communion together. Anyone, who has accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior is welcome to participate. The bread symbolized Jesus body that was broken. The grape juice symbolizes Jesus' blood that was shed for us and forgives sin. (1 Corinthians 11:28)
WE BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is to give every Christ-follower with power. It's a free give to anyone, who asks for it. The baptism in the Holy Spirit is followed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues.
(Ephesians 4:30-32, Acts 1:8, 2:4)
WE BELIEVE IN HEALING
We believe that healing is still available today. Through the prayer of faith the sick can be healed, the blind can see, and the lame can walk. (1 Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:17, 18:18-19, James 5:14-16, 1 Corinthians 2:9, Mark 16:15-18, Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33)
WE BELIEVE IN LEADERSHIP AND ACCOUNTABILITY
We believe in church leadership to provide direction and accountability, Each person should be loyal to those who are called by God to lead. (1 Peter 5:1-5, Romans 13)
WE BELIEVE IN THE RAPTURE
We believe in the second coming of the Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the the church, the thousand reign of Christ, and the final judgment. (2 Thessalonians 1:10 - 2:2)
WE BELIEVE IN HEAVEN
We believe that heaven is a literal and real place set aside for Christ-followers. (John 14:2, Revelation 7:15-17)
WE BELIEVE IN HELL
We believe hell is a literal and real place. It was created and set aside for those who reject Jesus Christ.
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning. Marriage is created by God to join one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union. This is clearly outlined in the bible.
We believe God intended sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman, who are married to each other. God commanded that no one should engage in intimate sexual activity outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
We believe any form of sexual immorality (adultery, fornication, pre-marital sex, homosexuality, bi-sexualuality, beastiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one’s sex, or disagreement with one’s biological sex) is sinful and offensive to God.
We believe in order to preserve the function and integrity of the church as the local Body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to the church members and the community, it is imperative for everyone follow these Biblical Guidelines and Statement on Marriage and Sexuality and conduct themselves accordingly.
We believe God offers forgiveness and restoration to anyone who confess their sin(s), even sexual sin.
We believe everyone must be treated with compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity despite his/her personal choices. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward anyone will not be tolerated and are not biblical.
As Christ-followers, it is vitally important we submit to those in authority and follow the laws of man, as long as they do not violate the Laws of God. God established His Law of Marriage in His Word; which is one man and one woman.
We will not re-define something that God has already clearly defined in His Word, the Bible. Nor will we assign to someone the term “marriage” when it is counter to God’s character and nature.
We share the same position as thousands of Evangelical Churches around the world, such as the Assemblies of God and the Southern Baptist Convention.
We will not perform or recognize any unbiblical demand created by the Same Sex Marriage ruling by the Supreme Court.
We live from a Higher Court that is Supreme over all the opinions and standards of mankind. We will continue to love and reach out to the LGBT Community with the Love of Jesus.
In the thousands of years of cultural change, God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. His standards and commands has never and will never change despite people's options and/or laws.
