Statement Of Faith—What We Believe
We believe that there is only one God, who revealed Himself to humanity in the person of Jesus Christ, his son, who was crucified, resurrected… and ascended into Heaven. And we also believe in the Holy Spirit (which is called The Comforter)… and these three are one.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Timothy 3:16; John 1:1, 10-11, 14-15; John 14:8-9, 26; Colossians 1:25-26 )
We believe that salvation is only found in Jesus Christ and is appropriated to humanity by God’s grace through the New Testament new-birth experience.
(Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8; John 3:3-7)
that the complete new-birth experience is comprised of repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. This is the New Testament pattern & promise for all believers to follow as a result of their faith in Christ.
Acts 2:38; Luke 13:1-5; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 19:5-6
We believe that when a person receives the baptism of the Holy Spirit, that person will speak with other tongues under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
(Acts 2:4; Acts 19:6; Isaiah 28:11) The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is promised to ALL believers, and is not promised to particular persons. (Acts 1:4, 2:38-39, 10:34)
We believe that believers are called to live a holy, pure life before God and all humanity.
(2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Hebrews 12:14)
We believe that the church will be raptured by Christ during to the great tribulation and will exist with Him forever in eternity.
(1 Thessalonians 4:15-18; 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52; 1 Thessalonians 1:10)
We believe that God’s power is still active in the church and that healings, signs, and miracles are available to God’s people through faith in Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 13:8; 1 Corinthians 2:4; 1 Peter 2:24)
