WE BELIEVE …

  • The Bible (the 66 books of both Old and New Testaments) 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 who has revealed Himself to us 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 on the cross, bodily resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of the Father all happened as the Scripture describes. 

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

  • Every person can have restored fellowship with God through salvation by grace through faith alone, apart from works. This means trusting Jesus as the only means of being cleansed from sin 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 available to believers empowering them for witnessing and effective service, just as in New Testament times. The initial physical evidence (the first outward sign of receiving it) of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is "speaking in tongues" as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles. We also encourage the earnest desiring, pursuit, and practice of all spiritual gifts according to Biblical guidelines and parameters. 

  • Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy but a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil, continually drawing closer to God, and becoming 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 through the sacrificial death of His Son Jesus Christ regardless of their denomination.

  • 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.

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

  • The Biblical definition of marriage, as established by God in the beginning, is the exclusively heterosexual and monogamous 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 male and female in His image and this design has not nor can be changed.

  • The Blessed Hope is the moment in time when Jesus will rapture 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 the 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 the Lake of Fire, the second death. 

  • 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, the core of our beliefs is that Jesus saves, heals, baptizes in the Holy Spirit and is coming again. Below is a detailed list of doctrines as stated in what's called "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.
