Our Doctrine

  1. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is inspired, infallible, accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
  2. We believe in one eternal, triune God who is the creator of all things (Matthew 28:19-20; John 17:3 John 1:1-4).
  3. We believe that sin brings death and separates each of us from God and His purpose for our lives (Romans 5:12; 6:23).
  4. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, is both God and man. (Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:35).
  5. We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the “new birth” we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives (Luke 13:3; Acts 3:19; Romans 10:9,10).
  6. We believe that in order to live the holy, fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit and live by faith in accordance with God’s Word (Matthew 28:19; John 15:4-5).
  7. We believe in being baptized with the Holy Spirit who empowers us with spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues, which is the normal New Testament evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 12: 1-31; Acts 1:8; 2:4).
  8. We believe that Jesus has commissioned His church to make disciples, proclaim the gospel, and to extend the kingdom to the whole world (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-18).
  9. We believe that God wants to heal, deliver, and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively (2 Peter 1:3-11).
  10. We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by His grace through our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:16-18; Romans 5:21; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9).
  11. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again in all His glory and power as He promised (Matthew 16:27; 24:27, 24:30; 24:36-39, 24:42; 26:64; Mark 13:26-27, 35-37; Acts 1:11).
  12. We believe in believer’s baptism by immersion and communion as ordinances of the church by following the example practiced by Christ and the early church (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:9-10; Acts 8:38-39; John 3:23; Acts 20:7; Mark 14:22-25; Acts 2:46; 1 Corinthians 11:20, 23-31).
