Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE in the scripture of the Old and New Testament as inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are our supreme and final authority in faith and life.

WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.

WE BELIEVE that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility become sinners in thought, word, and deed.

WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of his shed blood.

WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His Ascension into Heaven, in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate.

WE BELIEVE in the personal and imminent return of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

WE BELIEVE, in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting, conscious punishment of the lost.

WE BELIEVE  that the Word requires two baptisms for believers – water baptism (immersion) and the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We believe that believers are to partake of the communion elements that represent the body and the blood of Jesus. We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of God in the lives of believers: tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, and healing. (I Corinthians 12:7-11)

WE BELIEVE that our ministry should be founded according to the Word of God and the five fold ministry of apostles, prophets, pastors, evangelists, and teachers. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

WE BELIEVE that as believers we are called to help carry out the Great Commission and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) with our community, our nation and the world. We believe that we are called to minister like Jesus did – to everyone, particularly the poor and needy. We believe that our outreach should touch the lives of those in our community, country, and the nations of the world.
