What We Believe

 

About the Bible: We believe that the Bible is the literal, infallable word of God.  All of life's questions can be answered, including how we should live and how we find salvation, by reading and applying what's inside.

About God: There is one God who has revealed himself as our Father, through His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh.  He is both the Father and the Son.

About Sin and Salvation: We believe that everyone has sinned and needs salvation.  The Bible is clear that salvation comes by the grace of God through man's faith and is only possible because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  The Bible standard for full salvation is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost.  as a person receives the Holy Ghost, God causes them to speak an unlearned language as a sign to them and others that they have received it.

About the Gospel: "The gospel" is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again.  We obey the gospel by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus (burial) and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurection).

About Christian Living: As Christians, we are given two basic mandates from God.  First, to love God with everything we've got and to love other people.  Second, we are to make new desciples for Christ through preaching the gospel to the world.  In fulfilling these mandates we should live a life that's holy, both inwardly and outwardly.  We should worship God joyfully and wholeheartedly.  In addition, God provides spiritual gifts that He intends to be working in the church today.  These include healing, miracles and supernatural faith.

About the Future: Jesus Christ is coming again to fulfil the promise of taking His spirit-filled church to Heaven.  In the end will be the final judgement and all the righteous saints who are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise will inherit eternal life.  The reward of the un-righteous will be an eternal Hell.
