WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative eternal Word of God. II Timothy 3:16, 17; Hebrews 4:12; II Peter 1:21; Isaiah 40:8 ; Psalms 119:80, 160

We believe that there is one triune God, eternally existent as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 5:18; 23; 10:29, 30; Psalms 139:7; I Corinthians 2:10,11;Hebrews 1:5-12

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in His power and glory. John 1:1-5; 20:28; Colossian 1:15-17; Matthew 1:22, 23; 3:16, 17;II Corinthians 5:21; Romans 3:25; Matthew 28:5-7;Acts 1:9-11; Romans 8:34; Ephesian 4:8-10

We believe for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, the regeneration of the Holy Spirit is essential. Salvation is by faith alone through grace. Justification and sanctification are the works of the Holy Spirit in those who trust in Jesus Christ. John 3:5,6; Ephesian 2:8; Galatian 3:2-3; I Peter 1:2

We believe in obeying the “Great Commission” in the spirit of the “Great Commandment,” Matthew 22:37-38 Jesus said unto him, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all your heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.”

We believe that marriage and family are institutions ordained by the Lord God Himself from the very beginning of human history and these are sacred institutions. Marriage is between one man and one woman.
Any other definition of marriage is in opposition to the teachings of the Holy Bible. Genesis 1:27-28; 2:20-24;
Hebrews 13:4

We believe in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception to the time of death.
Galatian 1:15; Psalms 22:10; 71:6; Psalm 72:14; Isaiah 43:4

We believe that unity in the body of Christ Jesus is essential. Jesus called us to love one another. All the members of the body do not look alike, yet together, we are the Body of Christ Jesus, called to build the Kingdom in harmony and agape love. John 17:11; Romans 12:1-13; Ephesian 4:1-6

Our Core Values

We acknowledge Christ as reigning Lord and Savior of the Kingdom of God and are willing to submit ourselves and all our activities to his will and good pleasure. Ephesian 1:22-23

In obedience with the great commission and under the guide of the Holy Spirit we will seek the lost using evangelism as the vehicle to guide them to repentance and belief in Christ. Matthew 28:19-20

We desire to acknowledge the supreme nature, character and worthiness of God and will praise Him in our personal and corporate worship.

We will rely on prayer both privately and corporately in all areas of our ministry.

We believe family is the first institution established by God. It is symbolic of Christ Jesus relationship to the church. We also believe that the spiritual nurturing and developing of the family is God’s plan to increase the Christian faith to be used for kingdom building. I Tim:1-5

We strive through the illumination of the Holy Spirit to teach the rightly divided Word of God with authority and integrity to those who are seeking to find a Savior, so that believers may grow in spiritual maturity and seek the right relationship with God. II Tim 3:16

We seek to be an active part of our community by being a witness and to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to each person. Loving our neighbor as we love ourselves.

We strive to maintain a high standard of excellence in all ministry activities through prayer and supplication and through biblical teaching from the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that God has given to every man at least one spiritual gift. We envision a ministry that provides an avenue for the saints of God to utilize their gifts and to grow in spiritual maturity and to use those gifts to glorify God.

We envision a ministry that will teach the saints to serve God through personal and corporate worship to have a true relationship with Jesus Christ so they may grow in grace and increase their faith and learn to depend on God.
