What We Believe

 

There is only One True God–revealed in three persons…Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son Jesus was both human and divine.

Man Willingly Fell to Sin……….ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through ‘Salvation’ (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior).

The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His plan for mankind.

There are two church ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and living a holy life.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is evidenced in ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.

Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike.

Jesus Christ commanded the Church to go out into all of the world and declare the gospel (the good news about what Jesus has done for all of the world).

Everyone that has accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ is a part of The Universal Church (you should seek out a local fellowship to participate in).

Jesus will call up His Church to be with Him prior to His return to earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.

Jesus will return with His saints (the Church) at His second coming and begin His rule over earth for 1,000 years.

A final judgement will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.

Jesus Christ is preparing a perfect new heaven and earth for all people who have accepted Him.  We will live with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth.   And so shall we forever be with the Lord!
