• There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
• Jesus Christ is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, and was subsequently resurrected three days following His death on the cross.
• The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God.
• We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as a subsequent gift to salvation.
• We believe in the provision of bodily healing in the atoning work of Jesus our Savior.
• The return of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent, with the resurrection of the saved in to eternal life, living eternally in Gods presence.
We are considered a non-denominational Christian church, which, put simply, means we are not affiliated with any mainstream religious organizations such as Protestant, Catholic etc.
A summery for the leadership and ministry structure of our church can be found in Ephesians 4:11-12 which succinctly defines high offices of leadership and ministry, which we refer to as the five-fold ministry, which are…
We recognize these offices of ministry and hold them to be valid and still at work today.
GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
Additionally we believe in the various gifts of the spirit, which include healing, prophecy, tongues, and other supernatural gift’s. We believe each of these gifts operate today.
Our purpose is to proclaim Gods word to the lost, disciple believers, and multiply through Church-planting. This is both our purpose and vision. Church planting is at the heart of what we do. Our mission is to enlarge the kingdom of God by taking the gospel to the ends of the earth and leading as many as we can into a relationship with Jesus Christ, though church-planting. Win, Build, Send summarizes our method:
• Win Souls to Christ
• Build Disciples
• Send into Ministry
We believe God gifts everyone with unique talents, with the primary purpose of bringing glory to Him. We also believe that it is in the church where God will use those gifts, and anoint our work for the furtherance of His gospel. God can use anyone, no matter the personal obstacle or disadvantage. There is no limit to what an unlimited God can do, in your life!
Your place and purpose in the body of Christ is a journey of revelation you, and every believer will take. It can be a difficult, but exciting one. It’s a journey of trial and struggle, but also of growth, maturity, and ultimately faith and wisdom.
It’s our desire to help guide believers in that journey through spiritual edification, education, accountability, and fellowship. We sincerely believe these are necessary parts of a believers walk.
It brings us no greater joy than to see believer’s mature in Christ, in our church. The ministries we’ve established here at our church are intentionally centered around providing spiritual nourishment to disciples in our congregation.
We invite you to get connected, and let us partner with you in your spiritual journey.
The Holy Scriptures
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God: true, immutable, steadfast, and unchangeable.
(2 Timothy 3:16, 17)
The Eternal Godhead
We believe that God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the Three are coexistent, coeternal, and equal in divine perfection.
(1 John 5:7)
The Fall of Man
We believe that man, created in the image of God, by voluntary disobedience fell into the depths of sin and iniquity, bequeathing sin’s nature and consequences to all mankind, with their accompanying loss of intended meaning and purpose.
(Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12)
The Plan of Redemption
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, took our place, and with His life’s blood purchased the pardon for all who believe in Him.
(John 3:16; Titus 2:14)
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God saves and regenerates based upon faith by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.
(Acts 8:15-17; Ephesians 2:1-3 and 8-9; Romans 3:23 and 5:8; Titus 3:5)
Salvation through Grace
We believe that salvation is wholly through grace; that no human righteousness or merit can contribute to our receiving God’s love and favor.
Repentance and Acceptance
We believe that, upon sincere repentance and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God through Jesus’ sacrificial death.
(Romans 10:6-10; 1 John 1:9)
The New Birth
We believe that the change that takes place in people at conversion is a very real one; that having received righteousness in Christ and having received His Spirit, people will have new desires, interests, and pursuits in life.
(2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20)
Daily Christian Life
We believe it is the will of God that those who have been born again grow in sanctification, become partakers of His holiness, and daily grow stronger in the faith, power, prayer, love, and service.
(2 Corinthians 7:1)
We believe being baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is an essential response to Jesus’ command, testifying to His lordship as Christ and King (Romans 6:4). We believe baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work.
We believe in observing the Lord’s Supper, receiving the broken bread and the fruit of the vine with joy and faith as we partake anew of the life and triumph of Christ’s Cross.
(1 Corinthians 11:24-26)
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit empowers believers to exalt Jesus, that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are for today, to live lives of holiness, and to be witnesses of God’s saving grace; we expect the Spirit’s incoming to be after the same manner as that in which He came upon believers in the days of the Early Church.
(Acts 1: 5, 8; 2:4)
The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit bestows enabling ministry gifts upon believers, and that these gifts will build up the Body of Christ through edification and evangelism.
(1 Corinthians 12:1-11)
As evidence of a Spirit-filled life, believers should show spiritual “fruit”: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.
We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, Who came from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ.
(Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:18; John 16:8-11; Romans 8:26 and 15:13,16; Hebrews 9:14)
We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (John 6:13, 14:16-17 and 16:8-11; Romans 8:26)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Spirit according to the instructions given to us in 1 Corinthians 12-14.
We believe heaven is the glorious habitation of the living God and the eternal home of born-again believers.
(John 14:2; Revelation 7:15-17)
We believe hell is a place of darkness, deepest sorrow, and unquenchable fire, which was not prepared for man but for the devil and his angels; yet it will become the place of eternal separation from God for all who reject Christ as Savior.
(Matthew 13: 41, 42; Revelation 10:10 & Ch15)
We believe a Christian's moderation should be obvious to others and that a relationship with Jesus should never lead people into extremes of fanaticism; their lives should model that of Christ in uprightness, humility and self-sacrifice. (Colossians 3:12, 13; Philippians 4:5)
We believe divine healing is the power of Jesus Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith; He, who does not change, is still willing & able to heal the body, as well as the soul & spirit in answer to faith.
(Mark 16: 17, 18; James 5:14-16)
The Second Coming of Christ
We believe the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent; the certainty of His coming and the fact that no man knows the hour of His coming prompt our evangelistic efforts; that the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven, the dead in Christ shall rise, and the redeemed will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air.
(Matthew 24:36, 42, 44; 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17)
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with a congregation of believers with whom we can worship God, respond and observe the ordinances of Christ, encourage and support one another, labor for the salvation of others, and work together to advance God's purpose on earth.
(Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:24)
We believe all shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ: the redeemed to be delivered unto everlasting life and the unrepentant unto everlasting separation from the father.
(Revelation 20:11, 12; 2 Corinthians 5:10)
We believe soul winning is a priority in the Church on earth, and that every hindrance to worldwide evangelism should be removed.
(James 5:20; Mark 16:15)
Tithing and Offerings
We believe tithes & offerings are ordained of God to sustain His ministry, spread the Gospel, & release personal blessing.
(Malachi 3:10; 1 Cor. 16: 1, 2)
