STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that everyone is responsible for his or her own spiritual growth and development and we encourage people to look to God for help and guidance.
We also encourage fellowship with other believers, and the sharing of our faith with others who are disenfranchised, downtrodden, or destitute.
We believe people must be free to actively practice their faith while following the Spiritual principles depicted in the Bible and allowing these principles of righteousness to govern our actions and lives.
We believe the Bible is the Inspired Word of God, the product of Holy Men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. We accept this Word as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine.
(II Timothy 3:16; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:21)
We believe in God the Father, Creator of our universe. (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1)
We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who was one with the Father. He existed with the Father from the beginning. He suffered, died, was buried and rose for our salvation. (Colossians 2:9; Luke 3:21-22; Philippians’ 2:5-11) is eternal. (John 15:26)
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ atones for our sins for without the shedding of the blood there would be no remission of sins. (Roman 5:9-11)
We believe that man's first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The new birth is necessary to all men, and when fulfilled produces eternal life. (II Corinthians 7:10; I John 5:12; John 3:3-5)
We believe that water baptism is a direct commandment from the Lord and is for believers only. It is symbolic of the Christian's Identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:21; Acts 8:36-39)
We believe in the baptism in the Holy Ghost and Fire, which is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance.
(Matthew 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 2:4)
We believe in sanctification, the process of God's grace by which the believer is separated from sin and becomes dedicated to God's righteousness. The Bible teaches that without Holiness no man can see the Lord. (Hebrews 12:14; I Thessalonians 5:23)
We believe that All Scripture is God breathed (inspired by God and is infallible), and is profitable for instruction, teaching, reproof, correction, training in righteousness and Holy living. So that the Servant of God may be complete and proficient, thoroughly equipped for the work of ministry. (II Timothy 3:16)
We believe the Bible to be the main text book for training and guidance with regards to preparation for ministry ordination, and consecration to church governmental office of Apostle, Pastor, Prophet, Evangelist, Teacher, and Deacon. And these are to be conferred only after close examination of the presbytery (governing clergy) and executed before the body of Christ, the Ecclesia (the church).
(I Corinthians 12: 28-29. Eph 4: 11-13. I Timothy 3: 1-13)
