STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe God created the world and also now upholds, sustains, governs and providentially allows or directs all that exists. Genesis 1:1; Psalm 104; Matthew 10:29-31; Matthew 28:19; Acts 17:24-28; John 1:1; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 1:9-12; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 1:16-17; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6.
We believe the Bible is the only true inerrant, fully inspired, authoritative Word of God. Psalm 119:105; Proverbs 30:5-7; Matthew 5:18; John 10:35; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
We believe the only way to salvation is by grace alone, through the Blood of Jesus. Nothing needs to be added or done to earn eternal life except through believing faith in Jesus Christ. John 1:12-13; 6:37-44; 10:25-30; Acts 16:30-31; Romans 3-4; 8:1-17; 31-39; 10:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Titus 3:3-7; 1 John 1:7-9
We believe in two main ordinances: water baptism and the Lord’s Supper, to be observed until the time of Christ’s return. They are not a means of salvation but are channels of God’s sanctifying grace and blessing to the faithful in Christ Jesus. Matthew 26:26-29; 28:19; Romans 6:3-11; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34; 1 Peter 3:21.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit, in Whom we are sealed for the day of redemption. Matthew 3:11; John 1:12-13; 3:1-15; Acts 4:29-30; Romans 8:9; 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Galatians 3:1-5; Ephesians 1:13-14; 5:18.
We believe that God has called us, the Church to preach the Gospel of Christ and make disciples of all nations.
We, the church are called to remember the poor, to minister to their needs through sacrificial giving and practical service.
We believe we are called to be the embodiment of Christ; His hands & feet here on earth. Isaiah 58:6-12; Isaiah 61:1-3; Matthew 5-7; 28:18-20; Luke 4:18; 21:1-4; Galatians 2:10; 1 Timothy 6:8
We believe in the literal Second Coming of Christ at the end of this age when He will return to Earth personally and visibly consummate His Kingdom.
We believe in and are praying for a great end-time harvest of souls and the emergence of a Victorious Church that will experience an unprecedented unity, purity and power in the Holy Spirit. Psalm 2:7-9; 22:27-28; Romans 11:25-32; Ephesians 4:11-16; I Thessalonians 5:11; 2 Thessalonians 1:3-12.
We believe in a literal heaven and a literal hell.
We believe those who made covenant with Jesus will pass immediately into the blessed Presence of Christ, and those who have not made covenant with Jesus will be consigned to await the Day of Judgment where they will be eternally separated from God. Isaiah 14:10-17; Ezekiel 28:11-19; Matthew 12:25-29; 25:41; John 12:31; 16:11; Ephesians 6:10-20; Colossians 2:15; 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6; Revelation 12:7-9; 20:10.
