Our Beliefs

As an Assembly of God church, we emphasize that:

  1. Jesus saves 

  2. Jesus heals 

  3. Jesus baptizes in the Holy Spirit

  4. Jesus is coming again.

Listed below with Scripture are the essential doctrines of the Christian faith as well as our distinctive Pentecostal teachings. There is also a copy of a document explaining both of these in more detail called "The Statement of Fundamental Truths."


Please feel free to ask any questions you may have concerning theology to our Pastors as we all are growing in God together. 

Our Beliefs: About Us

We Believe

  • The Bible (the 66 books of both Old and New Testaments) is the only divinely inspired, authoritative, inerrant, and infallible Word of God declaring His design, will, and plan for all mankind that we are to live by as Christians. 

(Exodus 24:4; Deuteronomy 4:1-2; 17:19; Joshua 8:34; Psalms 19:7-10; 119:11,89,105,140; Isaiah 34:16; 40:8; Jeremiah 15:16; 36:1-32; Matt. 5:17-18; 22:29; Luke 21:33; 24:44-46; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Acts 2:16ff.; 17:11; Rom. 15:4; 16:25-26; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19-21.)

  • There is only One True God who has revealed Himself to us as One God in three Persons: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (known as the Trinity).

(Gen. 1:26; Deut. 6:4; Isa. 43:10-11; Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22; 4:1; 1 John 5:7)


  • The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, physical death on the cross, bodily resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of the Father all happened as the Scripture describes. 

​​(Matt. 1:21-23; John 1:1-2, 5:25, 14:6; Acts 1:2-3, 2:22, 4:10-12; Col. 1:15; 1 Thess. 4:16-18; Titus 2:13; Rev. 19:10, 22:5)

  • Though originally created good, man willingly fell into sin ushering in evil and death (both physically and spiritually.)

(Genesis 1:26,27, 2:17, 3:6; Romans 3:23, 5:12-19)​

  • Every person can have restored fellowship with God and salvation through repentance (turning away from their old life and the sins they used to commit) by trusting in Jesus as their only means of salvation and professing Him as Lord. This gift of God is given by grace alone through faith alone in what He did on the cross, apart from works.

​​(Luke 24:47; John 3:3,16-17; Acts 2:21; Rom. 6:23, 10:9-15; Eph. 2:8-10,13-18; Titus 2:11-13, 3:4-7; 1 John 1:9)

  • Two ordinances are practiced in the church: [1] Water baptism by immersion as a public profession of faith after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation and [2] Holy Communion (also known as the Lord's Supper), a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation, which we do until He comes.

(Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38, 10:47,48; Romans 6:4; 1 Cor. 11:23-26; Peter 1:4)​​

  • The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation available to believers empowering them for witnessing and effective service just as seen in New Testament times. The initial physical evidence (this means the "first outward sign," not the only or exclusive sign) is "speaking in tongues" as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout the book of Acts. It is continually evidenced by the Fruit of the Spirit, a desire for deeper devotion to Christ, supernatural boldness to witness, and the power to operate in spiritual gifts. We strongly encourage, as Scripture tells us, to earnestly desire, pursue, and practice all spiritual gifts according to Biblical guidelines and parameters. 

​​(Joel 2:28-39; Mark 1:8, 16:17-18; Luke 3:16, 24:49, John 7:37-39, 14:15-31, Acts 1:4-8, 2:1-4, 16, 4:23-31, 10:44-47, 11:12-18, 19:1-6; Rom. 6:3-14, 8:1-2, 11; 1 Cor. 12:4-11, Chapt. 14; Gal. 5:22-33; Eph. 4:1-32, 5:15-21)

  • Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy but a progressive, lifelong process where the Holy Spirit works in the believer separating them from evil, continually drawing them closer to God, and helping them become more Christlike. This is the will of God for His church and we must remain submitted to that will to keep from stumbling. 

(Rom. 6:1-13, 8:1-2, 13; Gal. 2:20; 5:22-23; Eph. 4:22-24; 1 Thess. 4:3-5; Phil. 2:12-13; Hebrews 10:9-10; 1 Peter 1:5; 2 Peter 3:18; Jude 1:24)​​

  • The Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe "the Church" is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption through the sacrificial death of His Son Jesus Christ regardless of their denomination. We are also instructed to congregate together (the local church) until the imminent day of Jesus’ return.

​​(Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-20; John 17:22-29; 2:40-47; Rom. 15:5; Gal. 6:10; Eph. 4:3, 11-13; Phil. 2:1-5; Col. 3:12-15; Heb. 10:24-25)

  • A divinely called and Scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the Church as described in Ephesians 4 equipping believers for the work of ministry. The Bible teaches that each of us, under leadership, must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to edify (build up and encourage) the body of believers, and to meet human needs with ministries of love and compassion. In doing so, we exemplify the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those around us. 

(Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-20; John 4:23-24; Acts 1:8; Eph. 4:11-16; Hebrews 12:23) ​​

  • Divine Healing for the sick and all kinds of sickness is an available privilege for Christians and is provided for in Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross for our sins. 

​​(Psalm 107:20; Isaiah 53:4-5; Matt. 8:16-17; 1 Cor. 12:28, 14:12; Ga. 2:10, 6:10; 1 Peter 2:24; James 1:27, 5:14-15)

  • The Biblical definition of marriage, as established by God at the beginning of time, is the exclusively heterosexual, monogamous, and life-long union of one genetically born male and one genetically born female, a union that God has joined together and no man may separate or change. We further affirm that God created humans either male or female. Any sexual relation, union, or gender expression outside of this framework is against God's design which has not changed nor will ever be changed. Speaking this truth in love, we emphasize that is not "the worst sin" but that God's grace, freedom, and transformation are always available to those who deny themselves and follow Christ in repentance and faith. 

(Gen. 1:26-27, 2:18, 23-24; Exodus 20:14; Leviticus 18:7–23; 20:10–21; Deuteronomy 5:18; Matt. 19:4-5, 10-12; Mark 10:5–9; Romans 1:18-32; Eph.4:17–19, 5:31–33; 1 Thess. 4:3–5; Matthew 5:27–28; 15:19; Romans 1:26–27; 1 Cor. 6:9–13; Gal. 5:19; Col. 3:5; Hebrews 13:4)​​

  • The Blessed Hope is the moment in time when Jesus will rapture His Church prior to His bodily return to Earth (also known as "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.

​​(Acts 1:11; 1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess.4:16-18; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 2:10)

  • The Millennial Reign of Christ will commence when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over the earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.

(Psalms 72:3-8; Isaiah 11:6-9; Ezekial 37:21-22; Micah 4:3-4; Zephaniah 3:19-20; Zechariah 14:5; Matt. 24:27, 30; Rom. 11:26-27; Rev. 1:7, 19:11-14, 20:1-6)

  • A Final Judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire, the second death. 

​​(Acts 17:31, 24:15; Romans 2:5-6; 1 Cor. 15-20-23; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. Chpts. 19-20)

  • There will be New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. "And so shall we forever be with the Lord!"

(Isaiah 65:17, 66:2; 2 Peter 3:13; Rev. chpts. 21-22)​
