What We Believe

The Bible, both the Old and New Testament, is the only infallible authority concerning God, His Word, His principles, and His deeds which were revealed to the writers by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. [II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 1:21]

There is One God who is omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent, and is revealed by the three distinct persons of the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son,and God the Holy Spirit. [Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; I Cor. 8:6]

Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, a fact proven by His virgin birth, sinless life, His works and words, His sacrificial atoning death on the cross,His defeat of the forces of darkness in hell, His bodily resurrection, His appearances to His disciples, and His ascension to the right hand of the Father. [Luke 1:26-38; Isaiah 7:17; Hebrews 4:15; John 14:9-11; Gal.1:4; Col. 2:15; Luke 24; Col. 3:1]

Jesus Christ is absolute Lord over all things because of what He has done. [Phil. 2:6-11; Heb. 1:4]

The only means of Salvation from eternal damnation and to the life eternal with God in Paradise is accepting Jesus as both Lord and Savior. In accepting Jesus, an individual’s human spirit is born of God by the regenerative power of the Holy Spirit. [Rom 10:9-10; Acts 4:12; John 3:3-8; II Cor. 5:17]

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all believers and is freely given to all those who ask for it. [Acts 2:1-4; Luke 11:13]

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers each believer to do the works of Jesus Christ. It is further evidenced by the manifestation of the spiritual gifts. [John 14:12; Acts2: 1; I Cor.12: 4-11]

The Church, as the bride of Christ, will be caught up to meet Jesus in the air at the time appointed by God the Father. [I Thess. 4:16-18; Acts 1:11]

The Church’s purpose is to be God’s representative figure here on this earth – to bring the Good News of salvation to the lost, to heal the sick, to set the captives free from the bondage of the evil one, and to reestablish the Kingdom of God. [II Cor. 5:18-20; Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-18; Luke 11:1-4]

The Church, Israel, and the End Times: We, the Church, owe a great debt of love to the nation of Israel and to the Jewish people. It was out of their seed that the world gained the Messiah, Jesus Christ. We recognize Jesus Christ as the Jewish Messiah who came to save His own first. Though Israel as a nation and people rejected Him, there was still a Jewish remnant that did accept Him as their Lord and Savior. They became the first Christian Church. God has never stopped loving Israel nor has He taken them out of His eternal plan. [Romans 1:16; Romans 2:9,10; Romans 11:11,25-28]
