Statement of Faith:





1.
God:
We believe in the Blessed Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. (1 John 5:7; Isaiah 43:10-11)

 
 
2. Deity of Jesus Christ as the Son of God: We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and that He lived a sinless life, and that after dying on the Cross for our sins, He rose from the dead in bodily form, and His exaltation to the right hand of God the Father. (Matt 1:23; 1 Peter 2:21-22; 2 Cor 5:21; 1 Cor 15:3-4; Acts 1:9)
 
 
3.Fall of Man: We believe that man was created with the gift of "free will." In the Garden, Adam and Eve with that free will chose to disobey God. And through that disobedience, sin entered the world. And now we are all in need of Repentance and to have our sins to be Forgiven. (Romans 5:12, 19)
 
 
4.Plan of Redemption: We believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, and that He died for all of us, and took our punishment that we deserve upon Himself by the shedding of His Blood. That He purchased salvation for all who believe in Him. That when Jesus said "It is finished", the price had been paid. That man's only hope for redemption is the Blood of Jesus! (Matt 1:23; John 19:30; Luke 24:1-12: John 3:16; Titus 2:14; 1 Peter 2:24; Colossians 2:14)
 
 
 
5.The Word of God: We believe that the Holy Bible, that is consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the True and Inspired Word of God. We believe it to be authoritative and the final rule of faith. (Hebrews 4:12; 2 Tim 3:16)
 
 
6.Water  Baptism: We believe those who have been born again should be baptized in water by full immersion in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Though baptism does not save us, it is an outward expression of an inward transformation. Through baptism, we confirm that Jesus is the Lord of our lives. (Romans 6:4)
 
 
7.Baptism in the Holy Ghost: We believe that the baptism in the Holy Ghost is separate from salvation, thus follows the new birth experience. We do not believe that the baptism in the Holy Ghost is essential  to ones salvation, only that they are entitled to receive it. And therefore should seek the promise of the Father. We believe the initial sign of the baptism in the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the speaking in other tongues as the Holy Ghost gives the audible expression. We also believe "what" Jesus Himself taught us, that when the Holy Ghost comes UPON us, we shall receive POWER. (Mark 16:16-17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4; Acts 8:12-17)
 
 
8.Gifts of the Spirit: We believe in the nine gifts of the Spirit. We believe that the Spirit chooses to flow within these gifts to BOTH edify the Church and to edify Christ, ALL for the Glory of God. Therefore, this ministry chooses to flow in each of these gifts as the Spirit will permit. All for the sole purpose of edification of the Body of Christ. (1 Cor 12:1-11) 
 
 
9.Christ's Return: We Believe that the second coming is imminent. That no one knows the exact time of His return. At that time, the Lord will descend from heaven, the dead in Christ will rise first, and all believers that remain that are alive will be taken up to meet the Lord in the air. This will be a VISIBLE return. Also known as the "Rapture."  (1 Thess 4:16-17; Acts 1:9-11)
