What We Believe


Bible - We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, filled with Truth and Power and meant to be obeyed. Therefore, we believe the Bible is the literal word of God (Pro. 30:5; 2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thess. 2:13; Heb. 4:12; 2 Peter 1:21).

Trinity - We believe in one God, manifested in three persons:  God the Father, Jesus His only Son, and the Holy Spirit (John 15:26; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2).

Jesus (Yeshua) - The Son of God, born of the virgin Mary, crucified, buried, and resurrected.  He is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world.  He is the Word made flesh (Matt 3:17; Luke 1:31; John 1:1-5, 14; John 1:9; Acts 1:22).

Salvation - Salvation comes through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12; Rom 10:9), is available to every person (John 3:16-17; Acts 2:21; Rom 10:13), and is a gift of God (Eph 2:8-9).

Holy Spirit -We believe the Holy Spirit is the one God sends to us to teach us all things (John 14:26), as the "breath" of Jesus that empowers us to continue Jesus’ ministry (John 20:21-22), and as the "one and same Spirit" who gives to each a spiritual gift for ministry (I Cor. 12:4-11).

Forgiveness of Sins - Man's first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that leads to repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life (2Cor. 7:10; John 3:3-5; 1 John 5:12).

Ministry of the Saints - Every believer is part of the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:12-14) and has been empowered by the Holy Spirit with spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12:4-7) for ministry (1 Peter 2:9), for building up the Body of Christ (Eph 4:11-14), and for edification (1 Cor 14:12).

Divine Healing - We believe that people can be healed of any disease through faith in Jesus Christ (Matt 10:8; 1 Cor 12:9; James 5;16; 1 Peter 2:24).

Lord's Supper - The Lord Jesus commanded us (those who have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior) to partake of the Lord's Supper as often as we can to remember Him (Luke 22:19-20), to declare His death and return (1 Cor. 11:26), and to celebrate the New Covenant (1 Cor. 11:24-25).

Baptism 

Water Baptism - We believe water baptism is a participation in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  It is a public profession of faith in the Lord Jesus (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16; 1 Peter 3:21).

Baptism of the Holy Spirit - We believe Jesus will baptize every believer with fire and the Holy Spirit, to cleanse us inwardly and prepare us for service in His kingdom (Matt. 3:11; Acts 1:5; Acts 11:16).
