Our Beliefs

  • We believe that there is only one living and true God, everlasting, without   body or parts, of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness; the Maker and  Preserver of all things, both visible and invisible. And in unity of this God-head, there are three persons, of one substance, power, and eternity – Father, the Son and The Holy Ghost.


  • We believe that Christ lived among man that He died and He rose from the dead and took again his body with all things appertaining to the perfection of man’s nature and ascended into heaven where He sits at the right-hand of God and will return to judge all on the last day.


  • We believe that the Holy Scriptures contain all things necessary to salvation.


  • We believe that if we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, we shall be saved (Romans 10:9).


  • We believe that once we confess Jesus as Lord, the Holy Spirit becomes a permanent presence in our lives       (John 14:16-17).


  • We believe that the Holy Spirit fills (Ephesians 5:16), anoints (Luke 4:18), empowers (Acts 1:6) and bestows gifts upon us (I Corinthians 12:4-6) to equip the saints for ministry, to edify the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:12) and set the captives free (Luke 4:18).


  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God written by fallible human beings who were under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and that it contains all things necessary for salvation (II Timothy 3:14-17).


  • We believe that the Lordship of Jesus Christ mandates that we tithe, which means giving 10 percent of our gross income to the church, and that the failure to tithe is flagrant disobedience to the word of God (Malachi 3:8-10).


  • We believe that marriage is a relationship ordained by God between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:20-24).
