FOUNDATIONAL BELIEFS

We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, written by mankind, but inspired by God.
We believe there is only one true God, revealed in three form; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, as God’s son Jesus was both fully human and fully God.
We believe Jesus entered the world through a virgin woman and lived a perfect life without sin.
We believe that although originally designed good, man free willingly fell to sin. Through which evil and both spiritual and physical death entered the world.
We believe that everyone has sinned and fallen short of the glory and God.
We believe everyone can receive a restored relationship back to God through the salvation, offered by Jesus Christ. That whoever believes and trusts in Him as the Lord and Savior will be saved.
We believe and practice two ordinances, water baptism by full immersions after receiving Jesus as Lord and partaking in Holy communion as a symbol of remembrance of the sacrifice the Lord Jesus did.
We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers for effective service.
We believe sanctification happens in two ways, first at salvation, where one’s spirit is sanctified and made right before God and secondly a sanctification that happens over time where one’s life becomes more like the life and model of Christ.
We believe the church has a mission to help reach the lost and share the good news of Jesus. We believe the church body is made up of those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior regardless of Christian denomination.
