Essential Truths

we are children of god

Our relationship with Him is what matters.

We are made new because of Jesus

Our right standing with God is based on Christ’s sacrifice, not on our hard work.

We are empowered by the Holy Spirit

Our faith is Jesus is made evident by the working of His Spirit in us.

What We Believe


God

There is one God, eternally existing in three co-equal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14

His Word

Holy Men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture.  Christian believers today receive spiritual insight to enable them to understand the Scriptures, but God does not grant new revelations that are contrary or additional to inspired biblical truth.

2 Peter 1:20-21; 1 Corinthians 2:12-14;
Proverbs 30:5-6

Salvation

God, out of love for his creation, sent His son Jesus Christ to die for our sins and rise from the dead.  Salvation has been provided for all of humanity through the sacrifice of Christ upon the cross.  Those who repent and believe in Jesus are born again and receive eternal life.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Isaiah 53:3-6;
1 John 2:2

Victorious Christian Living

Christ has provided victorious living for the believer, which includes—but is not limited too— divine healing, provision, and prosperity. The believer can place his or her trust in the promises of God and receive them through an intentional use of their faith.

Matthew 8:16-17; Philippians 4:19; 3 John 1:2; Psalm 35:27; Matthew 9:29; Luke 17:5-6

Water Baptism

Water baptism signifies the believer’s identification with Christ in his death, burial and resurrection and is practiced by immersion. It is a public declaration of their salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus’ command.

Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:15-16; Acts 8:36-39

Spirit Baptism

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is an experience in which the believer comes to know Christ in a more intimate way and receives power to witness and grow spiritually.

John 16:13-15; Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:1-17

Gifts of the Spirit

The Gifts of the Spirit are supernatural abilities given by God through which believers are enabled to minister effectively in particular situations.  They serve the dual function of building up the church and of demonstrating the presence of God within the church.

1 Corinthians 12:4-12, 24-25

The Church

All who are born again are members of the universal church who collectively make up the Body of Christ.  The local church serves as a community of believers who gather to worship God, grow in their faith, and become equipped to reach the world.

Colossians 1:18; John 4:23; Acts 20:7;
Acts 11:19-24; Ephesians 4:11-16

Eternity

When life on this Earth is over, one’s spirit continues to live on forever.  When we die, we will either be separated from God by sin or united with Him eternally through faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.

Ecclesiastes 12:7; Hebrews 9:27; John 3:16;
John 14:1-3; Revelation 20:10, 15
