What We Believe

We believe that humanity is hopelessly lost and inept without the help of Jesus who passionately loves us inspite of us! Jesus decided to give it all on the cross 2000 years ago so we the hopeless ones could have in incredible restored relationship with God the Father. We exist to testify to this amazing story we call the good news! The hopeless ones now have a hope; the lost now have light; the directionless have a future; the sick have a healer; and the oppressed have a deliverer. Our mission is to take this amazing story and share whereever God leads and to whomever will listen.

Statement of Belief

Inspiration of Scripture
We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments by the Holy Spirit as originally given; they are the final authority for our faith and life. (II Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12)

God
We believe in one God revealed in three co-equal, distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19-20; Ephesians 2:18)

Man
We believe that man in his natural state is a sinner, lost, undone, without hope and without God. (Ephesians 2:1-2; Romans 3:23)

Divinity and Humanity of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who by His incarnation and virgin birth took upon Himself the form of man and became the God-Man. In the one person of Christ there are two natures, human and divine, each in its completeness and integrity. They are distinguishable but indivisible, so that He is fully man and fully God. He lived a sinless life and became the only sacrifice for the sins of the world. (Ephesians 1:3-5; Romans 5:1-11; Acts 12:4; I Peter 1:18-19)

Bodily Resurrection
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Luke 24:38-43; John 20:24-29)

Salvation
We believe that the terms of salvation are repentance towards God for sin and a personal heartfelt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ which results in regeneration. This salvation is entirely by grace and not by works. (Ephesians 2:6-10; Romans 5:1; Acts 3:19-20)

Second Coming
We believe in the visible, bodily return of Christ to this earth to judge the world and to claim His Bride. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7)

Church
We believe that the church is Christ’s spiritual body on earth today. It consists of born-again believers and has both universal and local expressions. (Matthew 16:18; Acts 20:28)

Heaven and Hell
We believe in the doctrines of eternal punishment for the lost and eternal bliss for the saved; hell for the unsaved and heaven for the saved. (John 14:1-3; Revelation 20:11-15)

Satan
We believe that Satan is a fallen, created being who is the “god of this world.” He and his well-organized company of demons are opposed to the Kingdom of God, and work to defeat and destroy the believer. While his activity is real, Satan and his demon spirits were defeated and overthrown by Christ’s victory at the cross. (Luke 10:17-20; Colossians 2:13-15; Ephesians 6:10-18)

Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Godhead who is active in the world today. The Spirit indwells and seals the believer at new birth. We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a subsequent experience and is available to all Christians to empower us to be witnesses. We believe in and encourage the use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. (John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4)

Ordinances
We believe that believer’s water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of the church and should be practiced regularly. (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-10; 1 Corinthians 10:16-21)
