We believe that God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. We believe that there
About Jesus Christ
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. We believe He is co-equal with God the Father. We believe He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead three days after His crucifixion, demonstrating His power over sin and death.
About the Holy Spirit
We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit and that He is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. We believe that the Holy Spirit is present in the world today to convict
About the Bible
We believe the Bible is God’s Word that provides knowledge and guidance for us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural auspices of the Holy Spirit. The entire Bible is God-inspired and inerrant as recorded in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and practice. We believe that the Word of God is the foundation upon which the church operates and is the basis for which the church is governed.
We believe salvation is a gift from God, free to all who accept Jesus as their personal savior. We are not capable of removing our sin through self-effort, self-improvement, or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from the penalty of sin.
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe in a separate work of grace where the believer is “Baptized in the Holy Spirit”. Acts 1:8 says “But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth”.
While baptism is not a requirement to gain salvation, it does inspire a deeper walk and anointing
We believe that all will exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin (in Hell
About the Local Church
We believe and recognize Christ as the head of the church; not any person, group, or religious organization. While recognizing the value of associating and cooperating with other groups of Christians, we believe every local church should be self-governing. We believe there is order and structure in the local church as stated in the Bible
Priesthood of Believers
The Bible teaches that every Christian has gifts and callings and is called to “full time” Christian service, regardless of his or her vocation. We practice the truth that every believer is a minister by encouraging every member to find a place of service and ministry.
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit
We believe in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as described in 1 Corinthians 12. We believe that each believer has at least one of these listed gifts- “A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other (1 Cor 12:7, NLT).”
We believe that God created man and that He created them male and female. God created them as such to complement and complete each other. We believe that marriage has been established by God for the purpose of companionship, encouragement, sexual intimacy and procreation.
Telling Others About Christ
We believe it is the responsibility of every Christian to share the Good News of salvation with those God brings us in contact with.
Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the second coming of Christ, when He will return and personally and visibly renew His earthly Kingdom. We know not the date or time but live and work in anticipation of our union with Jesus.
We are so blessed that we have resumed our physical gathering on Sunday. We are doing all we can to create and maintain a safe environment for everyone. Our Worship service starts at 10 AM and we ask that people come 15 minutes before it starts. If you still feel unsafe to come, please join our Online Livestream through Facebook.
We encourage everyone to observe social distancing at all times (6 feet apart) and no hand shakes or hugging at this present time. Give everyone a warm smile and a happy wave as a form of welcome and joy!
Families living in the same household can sit together. Sanitizers are available upon entry into the church building and all throughout other locations in the building. The wearing of facemasks is encouraged but not required at this time.
There will be no Children's Church and Nursery at this time. Our Hospitality Corner where coffee and cookies are usually available are suspended at this time as well.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. These measures are all new to us but if it will ensure the safety of every person, then it would be wise to do them.
God bless you all!
