who we are
What we believe
* We believe in one, sovereign, living and true God who is the Creator of all things. He revealed Himself and His nature through Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, eternally existent, equal in glory, majesty, and power. 2 Cor. 13:14 Isaiah 43:10-11 Matt. 28:19
*We believe that Jesus Christ is the one an only Son of God, fully God and fully man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and died on the cross to redeem man from sin. He was raised from the dead, ascended to the Father's right hand where He is our intercessor. John 3:16 Matt. 1:18 Heb. 1:3 1 Thess. 4:16-18
*We believe in His Physical and visible return to establish His Kingdom here on earth.
*We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Comforter sent to live in and empower the believer to live a godly life. We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation giving increased power and authority to share the good news of Jesus Christ, often accompanied by speaking in other tongues, according to the Scriptures. We believe the fruit of the Spirit is the foundation of the operation of the gifts of the Spirit. We believe the gifts of the Spirit, signs, wonders, and miracles are in operation today to strengthen believers and bring God's love to a dyning world. Acts 2:1-4 Acts 1:8 John 14:16-17, 26 Gal. 5:22-23
Mark 16:17-18 Heb. 2:4 1 Cor. 14:1-5
*We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, as presented in the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe in its ultimate, complete, and absolute authority in matters of Faith and practical living. 2 Tim. 3:15-17 2 Pet. 1:20-21
*We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell through disobedience, allowing death, physical and spiritual, to enter the human race. We believe in salvation by grace alone in Jesus Christ alone, through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Those who repent of sin, believe in and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are born again by the Spirit of God and enter into eternal life. No works or rituals can be added. Gen. 1:26-27 Gen. 3:1-24 John 3:1-8 John 3:16 Rom. 3:24 Rom. 5:1 Eph. 2:8-9 Rom. 6:14
*We believe salvation brings us into an on-going process of allowing God's Characte to be developed in us. A believer in Jesus Christ will manifest the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5::22-25) to the glory of God. Godly attributes of mercy, love, compassion, integrity, honesty, and wisdom will also be evidence of a sanctified life. Rom. 6:19
*We believe in water baptism by immersion as taught and demonstrated in the Scriptures. It is an outward, visible declaration that we identify with Christ in Death to the old life, burial, and resurrection to new life. We believe the Lord's Supper is a means of fellowship and remembering the New Covenant we share as believers through the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ.
Acts 19:5 Acts 10:47-48 Matt. 28:19 1 Cor. 11:23-31 John 6:51-54 Matt. 26:26-28
*We believe that God is love and love is the foundation of all our ministry. We desire, as God does, to extend, grace love, healing (physical, emotional, and spiritual) in all life situations to the poor, oppressed, and broken hearted. Our Goal is to lead men, women and children to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, and to help them grow in the knowledge and love of God and to live Godly lives. Isaiah 61:1-4 Psalm147:3 John 13:34-35 Matt. 28:19-28 1 Cor. 13:1-8 John 15:12 1 John 4:8
John 4:12-16 2 Pet. 2:24
*We believe in the Church- the Body of Christ. The true Church is the compostion of all those who have been born again. Through the new birth, believers are united together as the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church. John 3:3-8, 16
Eph. 1:22-23 Eph. 4:3-6 John 17:20-21 1 Cor. 12:12-27
