WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
We believe that the Bible is inspired by God and has absolute authority (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
The eternal Trinity
We believe that God is three in one: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).
The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but by his own will he fell from perfection (Romans 5:12).
The Plan of Salvation
We believe that when we were still sinners Christ died for us, completely forgiving all those who believe in Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
Salvation by Grace
We believe that we are not righteous and we have to reach God by receiving the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).
Repentance and Acceptance
We believe that sincere repentance and an acceptance of Christ with all our heart justifies us before God (1 John 1:9).
We believe that the change that occurs in the heart and in life at the time of conversion is both real and discernible (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).
The Daily Christian Living
We believe that it is God’s will that we be sanctified daily, continually growing in faith (Hebrews 6:1).
The Lord’s Supper
We believe in the commemoration of the death of Christ through the participation of the bread and juice of the vine; which represents his body and blood offered for our salvation (I Corinthians 11: 24-25).
Baptism in Water
Baptism is a sign of the covenant. We baptize children whom parents have Christ as Lord and personal savior. The church is committed to helping be part of the growth of that baby or child.
Also in adults, we believe that baptism by immersion is an external signal of the work of internal regeneration (Matthew 28:19). We believe in commemorating the death of Christ by taking the bread and drinking from the cup, which represent His body and His blood offered for our salvation (1 Corinthians 11:24-25).
The Life of Fullness in The Spirit
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk daily by the power and holiness of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:25).
The Gifts and the Fruit of the Spirit
We believe that the Spirit distributes gifts to the Christian and that we should manifest spiritual fruit as evidence of the fullness of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22).
We believe that the daily experience of the believer should never be taken to extremes or fanaticism (Philippians 4:5).
We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in response to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).
We believe that it is the responsibility of each believer to identify and congregate with a local church (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25).
We believe in submission to governmental authorities at all times except in things that oppose God’s will (Romans 13:1-5).
We believe that heaven is the eternal home of believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).
We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment and separation from God for all those who reject Christ as Savior (Revelation 20:10, 15).
We believe that directing people to a faith that saves is the most important responsibility of the church (James 5:20).
Tithes and offerings
We believe that the method ordained by God for the support of His ministry is the tithe and the voluntary offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7).
