Our church is driven by the Great Commission and proclaiming that message to all people.
We strive to show God’s love by working to reach a hungry world with Jesus Christ through obedience to the Great Commission.
We are a fellowship of believers whose purpose is to know God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to equip believers through discipleship.
One: Seek God
We commit to seek God first for direction in every decision, whether great or small.
We are equipped to share the love of Christ wherever and whenever, with anyone we come in contact with, out of gratitude for God sparing us from eternal damnation.
God has given everyone a purpose, and we commit to impart in others lessons learned to help them fulfill their God-given purpose.
One True God
There is one true and living God, the Creator of heaven and earth, eternally self existent as three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of deity and characteristics of personality.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:11 ; Isaiah 44:6; Isaiah 45:5-6; Isaiah 45:18
Inspired Word of God
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalm 119:11; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16
Salvation of Man
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. It is wholly the work of God’s free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works, goodness or religious ceremony. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ by the regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God and a joint-heir with Jesus Christ according to the hope of eternal life. It is the privilege of all who are born again by the Holy Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment they trust in and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. This assurance is not based upon human merit, but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the assurance of their salvation according to the testimony of God’s Word.
Repentance is a Necessity
Repentance for men and women is to appropriate what God’s preeminent grace has made possible, they must voluntarily respond in repentance asking God for forgiveness of their sins. The ability comes from God, but the act is the individual’s.
Water Baptism in Jesus’ Name
Baptism by water immersion after salvation is commanded in Scripture, and is to be done by all who repent and believe in Christ as Lord and Savior as an act of obedience to Jesus Christ’s command.
Baptism in the Holy Ghost
Evidenced by speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Jesus Christ and to apply the saving work Christ to men. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life unto them, seals them until the day of redemption, leads and aides them in a life of holiness unto God not fulfilling the lust of the flesh, and equips them for service and work in God’s Kingdom bearing spiritual fruit unto the glory of God. Every believer is called to live under the power of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. With the baptism of the Holy Spirit comes an overflowing fullness of the Spirit, a deepened reverence for God, an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His works, a manifestation of the fruit and gifts of the Spirit
Matthew 3:11; John 3:5; Acts 2:4; Acts 2:38; Acts 8:14-17; Acts 10:44-46
Living Holy before the Lord
When we put our faith in Jesus Christ, it ignites a spiritual chain reaction and produces evidence of our salvation. We are forgiven of sin, declared right before God, and given eternal life with Him. The Holy Spirit is given to assure us of our salvation, adopt us into God’s family, and to live in us and empower us for a life of following Jesus. This results in the fruits of the Spirit — love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Leviticus 20:7; Romans 6:19; II Corinthians 7:1; Ephesians 4:24; I Thessalonians 4:7
Worship God in Spirit and Truth
To say that we must worship God “in spirit” means, among other things, that it must originate from within, from the heart; it must be sincere, motivated by our love for God and gratitude for all he is and has done. Worship cannot be mechanical or formalistic. That does not necessarily rule out certain rituals or liturgy. But it does demand that all physical postures or symbolic actions must be infused with heartfelt commitment and faith and love and zeal.
