WHAT WE BELIEVE

BELIEFS are the foundation of VALUES which are the root for one's ACTIONS!

The beliefs of a people are the foundation for what they do as a group; as well as personally as individuals outside of the group. It is our desire that you can strengthen your relationship with God in your Journey so that your beliefs grow biblical values.

ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is the literal, infallible Word of God. It stands as the authority for salvation and christian living. The answers to life's questions are wrapped up with in its' pages. You could think of it as the manual on living life the proper way, one needs to know what the manual has to say.
(See II Timothy 3:15-17)
ABOUT GOD
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. He is NOT three separate persons but yet one God who has shown himself and acted on our behalf in several ways.
(See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)
ABOUT SIN
The scripture teaches that everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Man's fall is encapsulated with the scripture in several different passages. The cure to the fall of man is HIS salvation. Salvation comes ONLY by grace through man's faith and is available through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
(See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)
ABOUT SALVATION
The Bible standard of full salvation is repentance, baptism in water by full immersion in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. As a person receives the Holy Ghost, God causes them to speak in an unlearned language as a sign to them and others that they have received it.
(See John 3:3-5; Acts 2:38; I Peter 3:20-21; and Titus 3:5)
ABOUT THE GOSPEL
"The Gospel" is often called the good news. "Good News" because it informs us that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave. We, scripturally, obey the gospel (See II Thessalonians 1:8 and I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the receiving of the gift of the Holy Ghost (resurrection).
(See I Corinthians 15:1-4, Acts 2:4, Acts 2:37-39, Romans 6:3-4.)
ABOUT CHRISTIAN LIVING
The Lord gave two commandments that surpassed all others; to love God with everything in us and the second was to love everyone like ourselves (Mark 12:28-31). That develops in us a holy lifestyle inwardly as well as outwardly. As we walk with Jesus fulfilling these directives on every day living, we recognize the commission given to us to "make disciples".
We should worship God joyfully, give faithfully and not begrudgingly, and not forsake attending church related meetings. In addition, he gives the church spiritual gifts to work amongst the people; such as, healing, miracles, and supernatural faith and wisdom.
(See II Corinthians 7:1 , Hebrews 12:14, I Corinthians 12:8-10)
ABOUT THE FUTURE
Jesus Christ is coming again to fulfill the promise of taking His spirit-filled church to Heaven. In the end will be the final judgment, and all the righteous saints who are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise will inherit eternal life. The reward of the un-righteous will be an eternal Hell.
(See I Thessalonians 4:16-17, and Revelation 20:11-15)
