in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
that God is eternally existent in three separate persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God the Father is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.
that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the Cross, was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, ascended back to the right hand of God the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.
that after Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.
that all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.
Worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
Worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.
Worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshipped.
Worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have been truly worshipping Him.
the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
That all the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in Scripture are in practice today; the greatest gift of all being Christ’s love.
That church government should be simplistic rather than a complex bureaucracy, and we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead rather than on fleshly promotion.
That God created man that He created them male and female. As such He created them different so as to complement and complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. Therefore, we perform marriages in accordance with the Bible consistent with the Old and New Testament. Further, biblical marriage is the only legitimate and accepted sexual relationship. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; John 4:16-18; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 5:11, 6:9-11, 6:18-20, 7:1-3 and 7:8-9; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-7; 1 Timothy 1:9-11)
In the God-ordained and significant role that women should play in establishing and leading the local church. Every leadership opportunity is open to women except those that are excluded by Scripture (1 Timothy 2:12 and 3:1-2; Titus 1:6-9). We do not see this as an issue of equality, for men and women are equal under God; however, the Bible is clear that men and women do not have the same roles.
the pre-tribulation rapture of the church, and we believe that the second coming of Christ with His saints to rule on the earth will be personal, pre-millennial, and visible. This motivates us to holy living, heartfelt worship, committed service, diligent study of God’s Word, regular fellowship, participation in adult baptism by immersion and Holy Communion.
to teach the Word of God in such a way that its message can be applied to an individual’s life, leading that person to greater maturity in Christ. Although it is impossible to anticipate every challenge, issue or dispute that may arise, we do desire to honor and live out the precepts of Scripture in all matters. In the event of unresolvable circumstances due to contrary interpretations, the Senior Pastor and governing body of the Board will serve as the church’s sole interpreter of Scripture.
the belief that true Christians can be demon possessed, “5-point Calvinism” (a fatalistic Calvinistic view that leaves no room for free will), “positive confession” (the faith movement belief that God can be commanded to heal or work miracles according to man’s will), human prophecy that supersedes the Scripture, the incorporation of humanistic and secular psychology into Biblical teaching, and the over-emphasis of spiritual gifts, experiential signs and wonders to the exclusion of Biblical teaching.
In Our Services
we focus on a personal relationship with God through worship, prayer, and the teaching of the Word of God. We teach both expository and topically. We do not allow speaking in tongues loudly during services, nor prophecy while a Bible study is in progress because we do not believe the Holy Spirit would interrupt Himself. We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only to their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.
