Statement of Faith

 

  • We believe that the Bible is the infallible and divinely-breathed Word of God. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
  • We believe there is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator, Judge and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent—one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy God yet we rejected Him. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now the effects and consequences of sin burden creation.
  • We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the uniquely begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is both fully God and fully man.
  • We believe we are saved by grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord.
  • We believe in the free gift of righteousness. When a person receives Christ, they also receive a fully healed and whole spirit, in which the indwelling presence of Christ resides. The Holy Spirit invites every believer on a heart journey that fully heals and restores every wound, grief, enslavement and oppression.
  • We believe in the victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross to provide freedom from the power of the enemy—sin, lies, sickness, death and torment. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, transforms, adopts and glorifies us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
  • We believe in the power of worship and intercession as the requisite means of effecting God’s will on the earth, releasing His eternal Kingdom, and seeing the glory of heaven heal the earth.
  • We believe the Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, discipling nations, baptizing and teaching them to love one another and walk in God’s ways.
  • We believe in the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign with His overcoming bride—the church.
