Core Beliefs


Bible

We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God.

  • The Bible was written over a period of about 1500 years, in three languages (Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic), by 40 different writers, yet it contains an incredibly accurate historical record and an impeccably consistent presentation of Spiritual truth. This is only possible because the words of the Bible were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The greatest evidence of the authority of the Bible is not in historical facts or its consistency. It is found in the obvious result of applying the truths of the Bible to our every day lives. [2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21]
  • The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. [2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21]

God

We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, and eternal.

  • The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. [Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22]

Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:

  • His virgin birth, [Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31; Luke 1:35]
  • His sinless life, [Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22]
  • His miracles, [Acts 2:22; Acts 10:38]
  • His substitutionary work on the cross, [1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21]
  • His bodily resurrection from the dead, [Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4]
  • His exaltation to the right hand of God. [Acts 1:9; Acts 1:11; Acts 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3]
  • That He is the active agent in baptizing the believer in the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives them utterance [Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:33; Acts 11:15]

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the absolute and essential deity, and in the personality of the Holy Spirit

  • Who convinces of sin, of righteousness and of judgment [John 16:8]
  • Who regenerates, indwells, seals, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ [Ephesians 4:30; 1 Corinthians 2:12; Romans 9:31; John 14:26]
  • Who baptizes believers at conversion into the Body of Christ [1 Corinthians 12:13]
  • He bestows upon believers baptized in the Holy Spirit His gifts sovereignly as He wills and fills those yielded to Him [1 Corinthians 12:11; Hebrews 2:4]

Mankind

We believe that Adam was divinely created in the image of God

  • Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness." [Genesis 1:26; 31]
  • However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. [1 Timothy 2:13-14]
  • That all his posterity inherited spiritual death [1 Corinthians 15:21-22; Romans 5:17]
  • That all men, therefore, are guilty before God and condemned to physical and spiritual death [Romans 3:9-11; 23]

Salvation

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in the gift of God

  • That man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. [John 14:6; Matthew 7:14]
  • That by the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a propitiatory death [1 Peter 3:18; Romans 5:8]
  • Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. [Ephesians 2:8; Titus 3:7]
  • That justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ [Hebrews 7:27, 10:10]

Sanctification

Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. [Romans 12:1,2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23;Hebrews 13:12]

  • The Scriptures teach a life of "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord." [Hebrews 12:14 ]
  • By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: "Be ye holy, for I am holy." [1 Peter 1:15,16; Romans 8:13]
  • Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, by faith reckoning daily ourselves "dead indeed to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord", and by yielding to the dominion of the Holy Spirit. [Romans 6:11, 13; 15:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:13]

We believe god still works in our lives in incredible ways

  • The Holy Spirit is still at work in the lives of believers today. In fact, many of the miracles of the Bible still happen and are documented every day. The healing of diseases, the restoration of broken lives, even prophecies and supernatural occurrences, all these things still happen. The reason these things still take place is that the Holy Spirit is still at work in the lives of believers. [James 5:14-16; John 14:12]
