Statement of Faith

11We Believe:
  • In God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We especially emphasize the deity of Jesus Christ and the personality of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
  • That the Old and New Testament scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all the truth necessary to faith and Christian living. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119.105; Proverbs 30:5)
  • That man is born in sin. (Romans 5:12)
  • That man needs the work of forgiveness through Christ and new birth by the Holy Spirit.
  • That subsequent to this there is deeper work of heart cleansing or entire sanctification through the infilling of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 5:3; Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 6:19).
  • That to each of these works of grace the Holy Spirit gives witness. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10; Romans 6:3-4)
  • In the Bible doctrine of divine healing and urge our people to seek to offer the prayer of faith for the healing of the sick. Providential means and agencies when deemed necessary should not be refused.
  • That our Lord will return, the dead shall be raised, and that all shall come to final judgment with its rewards and punishments. (Matthew 24:36; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:2; John 14:3)
  • In communion as an opportunity to remember the death, burial, resurrection and return of our Lord.
  • This opportunity, which is a culmination of our celebration and worship, is provided for all believers and guests. (Acts 2:42; 20:7, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29).
  • That we are to be good stewards as the Bible teaches us that all we have comes from God and belongs to God. A part of being a good steward is giving back to God the first part of our income (10%) for the work of the local church. (1 Chronicles 29:16; Psalm 24:1; 1 Corinthians 10:6; 1 Corinthians 16:2).
12What We Believe About Worship:
  • Worship of God should be SPIRITUAL. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
  • Worship of God should be INSPIRATIONAL. Therefore, we give a great place to music in our worship.
  • Worship of God should be INTELLIGENT. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis on teaching the Word of God that He might instruct us how He would be worshiped.
  • Worship of God is FRUITFUL. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestations that we have truly been worshiping Him.
