Statement of Faith

We Believe...


...the ultimate training plan for our ministry is the renewal of the mind according to Romans 12:2, "Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."


...that man needs The Holy Spirits power to walk out daily the Victorious Life In Christ in order to bring honor and glory to God, according to Acts 1:8, "You will receive power when The Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses."


...that man needs intimacy with Father God, which produces faith in order for man's destiny to be fulfilled, according to Hebrews 11:6, "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him." active prayer life is vital for the development of intimacy in the believers life, according to Jeremiah 33:3.... "Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, you do not know."

SCRIPTURES INSPIRED - We believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:15; I Peter 2:2)

ONE TRUE GOD - We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. ( Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 5:17-30)

DEITY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST - We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of God the Father and in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory to rule over the nations. (Isaiah 7:14; Acts 1:9-11, 2:22; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Hebrews 7:26)

FALL OF MAN - We believe man was created good and upright, but man voluntarily sinned and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God. (Genesis 12:6-27, 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19)

SALVATION OF MAN - We believe the only means of our being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for personal salvation. (Luke 24:47, Romans 8:16, 10:13-15; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7)

MARRIAGE - We believe that marriage, as ordained by God, is defined as being between one man and one woman. No other will be performed or condoned (Jeremiah 29:6; Corinthians 7:2; Genesis 21:21; Genesis 29:21; I Corinthians 7:36, 39; Genesis2:34-24; Ephesians 5:22-23, 25, 28-29, 31, 33).

ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH - We believe the ordinances of the Church are the communion of the Lord's supper and baptism in water by immersion, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.(Matthew 28:19; I Corinthians 11:26; Romans 6:4; II Peter 1:4)

BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT - We believe the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is recieved when a person is Born Again by The Holy Spirit. "For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit" (1Cor. 12:13).We believe this is the Biblical experience of New testament Christians; and that it endues the believer with power for Christian living, & ministry.  The Holy Spirit has His own language that is uttered thru a yielded believer (**prayer language, unknown tongue) to The Heavenly Father. This produces intimacy, edification & intersession for the believer with The Heavenly Father. (Romans 8:26-27, 1Corinthians 14:2,4).

SANCTIFICATION - We believe the scriptures teach a life of holiness. Sanctification is a separation from that which is evil and a dedication unto God. We believe all believer's should earnestly pursue sanctification by walking in obedience to God's Word. We further believe that the Christian is able to live a Godly life by indwelling of the Holy Spirit. (Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15,16)

THE CHURCH - We believe that the Church is the body of Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus is The Head who is connected to His Body, The Church (Col. 1:18). Every believer is nourished by the Life giving Power of The Holy Spirit (Rom.8). Jesus is The Baptizer who immerses the believer in The Holy Spirit (Jn. 1:33). Each believer, born of the Holy Spirit, is a part of the "general assembly and Church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven." (Ephesians1:22-23, 2:22; Hebrews 12:23)

THE MINISTRY - We believe a divinely called ministry has been provided by our Lord for two purposes: 1) Evangelizing the world, and 2) edifying the body of Christ. (Mark 16:15-20; Ephesians 4:11-13)

GIFTS of THE HOLY SPIRIT - We believe that The Disciple of Jesus Christ is endowed with The Gifts of The Holy Spirit. These Gifts manifest when the Disciple of Jesus Christ yield (submit) to The Holy Spirit (1Corinthians 12:4-11).

THE BLESSED HOPE -We believe in the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church. (Romans 8:23; I Corinthians 15:51,52; I Thessalonians 4:16,17; Titus 2:13)

MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST, GOD'S JUSTICE - We believe the second coming of Jesus which is our blessed hope, the visible return of Christ with His saints to rule on the earth for a thousand years. After the Millennial Reign, God's Throne Room Justice. (Zechariah 14:5; Isaiah 11:6-9; Micah 4:3,4 Matthew 24:27; Romans 11:26,27; Revelation 1:7, 19:11-24, 20:1-6, 11-16; 2Corinthians 5:10)

THE END OF THE AGE -The Biblical worldview envisioned this present age ending with a time of Great Tribulation, transitioning into Millennial Reign, followed by Divine Judgment. The Righteous then are rewarded and enter into Eternal Life with God on a New Earth. "God’s Kingdom" will be fully inaugurated with Jesus Christ as "King" over the New Earth ( "All things made new"). "Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever. For the LORD loves justice; he will not forsake his saints. They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever," Psalm 37:27-29."Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among the people, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”  And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give water to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life, without cost. The one who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son, Revelation 21:1-7.
