What We Believe

We take the Word of God for what it says!

Bible
We believe the Bible is the Holy Spirit inspired Word of God.
2 Peter 1:20-21  20 Above all, you do well if you recognize this: No prophecy of scripture ever comes about by the prophet’s own imagination,  
21 for no prophecy was ever borne of human impulse; rather, men carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. 

Salvation
We believe that salvation is ONLY through belief in Jesus Christ. There is NO other name given under heaven through which we can be saved.
Acts 16:31  31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and your household.”
Romans 10:9-10  9 because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  
10 For with the heart one believes and thus has righteousness and with the mouth one confesses and thus has salvation.

Baptism
We believe after a person has been saved, baptism by immersion is the next step in obedience to the Word of God.
Acts 16:30-33  30 Then he brought them outside and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”  
31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and your household.”  
32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him, along with all those who were in his house.  
33 At that hour of the night he took them and washed their wounds; then he and all his family were baptized right away.
Romans 6:4  4 Therefore we have been buried with him through baptism into death, in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may live a new life. 

Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is active in the life of a person before and after he/she is saved.
We believe in all the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in different tongues.

Eternity
We believe that Jesus Christ will return and reign physically on this earth and that we will reign and rule with him.

We do believe the Kingdom of God is moving ahead and ADVANCING. We believe that the kingdoms of this world HAVE become the Kingdoms of our Lord.

Life & Immortality
We believe in LIFE and IMMORTALITY.
Jesus came to give us LIFE – ABUNDANT LIFE.
Romans 2:6-7  6 He will reward each one according to his works:  
7 eternal life to those who by perseverance in good works seek glory and honor and immortality,
2 Timothy 1:9-10  9 He is the one who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not based on our works but on his own purpose and grace, granted to us in Christ Jesus before time began,
10 but now made visible through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus. He has broken the power of death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel!
