PRAYER - We consider prayer the utmost value. Every mission and ministry is covered in prayer
and does not go forward without clear direction from God.
PRESENCE OF GOD - We pursue the life-giving presence of God through praise and worship. In Gods
presence is fullness of joy, direction, peace, wisdom and all that is necessary for the
THE WORD OF GOD -
We value the Bible as the inerrant word of God and therefore the foundation for our
faith, behavior and direction.
- As Spirit filled Christians we believe in the Supernatural Power of God as a normal part
of the Christian life: Gods Spirit actively working through us and for us on a daily basis.
We believe leaders should humbly serve the Body of Christ for the glory of God. We
are committed to training leaders in the church, our model being the Son of God, who
gave His life for the sheep.
- We treat each member of the Body of Christ, with the honor, value and love that God
has for them. We endeavor to model the community relationship of the Father, Son
and Holy Spirit to all ages, cultures and backgrounds.
Holy Bible - The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the
Final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is
inspired, infallible and inerrant (2Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5;
Trinity - There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
These three are co-equal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17,
28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11).
Jesus Christ - Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was
100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was
born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for
mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose
from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right
hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory (John 1:1,14, 20:28;
1Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; 1Timothy 2:5).
- Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third
person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God
(Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18, 23-25; Luke 1:27-35).
- Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell; his only
hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen.1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans
- For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential
(John 6:44, 65).
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial, and
resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any
human efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts
16:31; Hebrews 9:22).
- Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and
to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by
the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and
appropriate salvation (Acts 2:21, 3:19; 1 John 1:9).
- Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God's Word and His Spirit in
order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the
present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled
to live a godly life (1Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, 2
Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).
- The Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100%
sufFicient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for
both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the
penalty of sin, which is death (1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20;
Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29).
Jesus Christ Indwells All Believers
- Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside
them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to him thus
making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior. They put their trust in what
Jesus accomplished for them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the
dead (John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelations 3:20).
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
Given at Pentecost - it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension,
to empower the church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth (Joel
2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38,
44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6).
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit
- The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify
the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and conFirm the power of
the Gospel. The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts
may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire
the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony
with the Scriptures and
should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11,
12 : 4-8; Ephesians 4:16; 2 Timothy 1:5-16, 4:14; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1
- The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with
divine appointments for the fulFillment of Jesus' great commission. Every person
who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of
believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ
(Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23)
Healing of the Sick
- Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the
commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign which is to follow believers.
It is also a part of Jesus' work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit (Psalm
103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16; 1
Corinthians 12:9, 28; Romans 11:29).
- Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days
after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be
resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to
the resurrection of eternal damnation (Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28,
21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21).
- Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ
(Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews
11:16; 1 Peter 1:4).
- After living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell
where they will be eternally tormented with the Devil and the Fallen Angels
(Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8).
- Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time. This will
occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures (Matthew 24:30,
26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation
