Jesus is the Center

1. THE BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD

WE BELIEVE...The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

2. THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE GOD

WE BELIEVE...There is only One True God- revealed in three Persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

3. THE DEITY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

WE BELIEVE...In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's Son, Jesus was both 100% human, and 100% divine.

4. Man willingly chose to sin

WE BELIEVE...though originally created good, mankind willingly chose to sin- bringing evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world. 

5. everyone can have restored relationship with god through 'salvation'

WE BELIEVE...Every person can have restored relationship with God through 'Salvation' (trusting Jesus Christ, through faith and repentance of one's sins, to be their personal Savior and surrendering their every day life to Him as Lord).

6. Baptism in Water and Holy Communion

 

WE BELIEVE...and practice two church ordinances- (1) Baptism in water by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of Salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic rememberance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.

7. the BAptism in the holy spirit is a gift and experience that follows salvation

WE BELIEVE...the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a  gift from God to those who belong to Christ through salvation. It's an experience that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did for the early Church in the New Testament.

8. THE INITIAL PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT is 'speaking in tongues'

WE BELIEVE...the initial physical evidence of someone receiving the gift of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is 'Speaking in Tongues,' as experienced on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2 and referenced throughout the New Testament.

9. sanctification initially occurs at salvation

WE BELIEVE...Sanctification (being set apart unto God and becoming pure and holy) initially occurs at Salvation is not only a declaration that a follower of Christ is holy, but also a lifelong daily process of separation from evil and drawing closer to God by being more like Christ.

10. THE Church has a mission

WE BELIEVE...The Church has a Mission to seek and save those who are lost in their sin. We believe the Church is 'the Body of Christ' and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's gift of Salvation (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His Son, Jesus Christ.

11. the ministry the church

WE BELIEVE...God has called and equipped the Church to do ministry to others. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him individually and with other believers, to build up or edifiy the body of believers-the Church, and to meet the needs of mankind with ministries of love and compassion.

12. divine healing of the sick is a privilege for christians today

WE BELIEVE...divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for through the Atonement (Christ's sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).

13. THE BLESSED HOPE - when jesus raptures his church prior to his return to earth

WE BELIEVE...in the 'Blessed Hope' (commonly known as the Rapture) when Jesus Christ will receive those, both dead and living, who have received His gift of salvation prior to when He will return again to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time, all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and followers of Christ who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.

14. THE millennial reign of christ

WE BELIEVE...in the Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints (those who were taken in the Rapture) at His second coming and begins His benevolent Kingdom on the Earth for 1,000 years. This Mellenial Reign will bring the salvation of Israel and establish universal peace.

15. THE final judgment will take place

WE BELIEVE...the Final Judgment will take place for those who have rejected God's gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ. They will be judged for their sins and sentenced to an eternal punishment in a lake of fire (commonly referred to as Hell).

16. THE NEW HEAVENS AND a NEW EARTH

WE BELIEVE...and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him and His gift of Salvation. We will live with Him there forever following His Millenial Reign on Earth, and we will be with Him forever!
