WE BELIEVE …

  • The Bible (the 66 books; both Old and New Testament) are the only divinely inspired, authoritative, inerrant and infallible Word of God declaring His design and plan for all mankind.

  • There is only One True God–revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

  • The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, physical death, bodily resurrection, and

    ascension to the right hand of the Father all are as the Scripture describes.

  • Though originally created good, man willingly fell into sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

  • Every person can have restored fellowship with God through 'salvation' (trusting Jesus as the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in what He did on the cross and to be our personal Savior).

  • Two ordinances are practiced in the church [1] Water baptism by immersion 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.

  • The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation empowering believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it was since New Testament times.

  • The initial physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit (the first outward sign of receiving it) is ‘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.

  • 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 (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.

  • A divinely called and Scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church and to Meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.

  • Divine healing of the sick is an available privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ’s atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).

  • The Biblical definition of marriage, as established by God in the beginning, defined as the joining of one biological male and one biological female, a union that God has joined together and may no man separate.

  • The Blessed Hope is the moment in time when Jesus raptures His Church 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.

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

  • 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 a punishing lake of fire.

  • 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!’

As an Assembly of God church, we believe that Jesus saves, heals, baptizes in the Holy Spirit and is coming again. Below is the detailed list of doctrines as stated in the Statement of Fundamental Truths. A link with Scriptural references verifying our doctrines has also been made available for your convenience. For further clarification, our pastors are more than happy to answer your questions.
