MISSION & BELIEFS
Our Mission (the short part)
To reach those who are far from God and lead them to becoming fully devoted followers of Christ.
To create the Scene or Setting where people are highly impacted by the person of Jesus.
Our Beliefs (the long part)
We believe in the plenary-verbal inspiration of the accepted canon of the Scriptures as originally given and that they are infallibly and uniquely authoritative and free from error of any sort in all matters with which they deal. 1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16
We believe in the Eternal God-head who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible. Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14
We believe in the creation, test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness. Romans 5:12,18
We believe that sin is a transgressing of, or falling short of, God’s standard in action, thought, and character. All individuals are born with a sin nature that affects their motivation, affection, volition, and actions. The results of sin include separation from God, and death. Romans 3:10,23; 6:23; 14:23; James 4:17; 1 John 5:17
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, fully God and fully man. Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; Matthew 1:21; Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18
We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples. Romans 4:25; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8
We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation and personal, literal and bodily coming again the second time for the Church. Matthew 24; Mark 16:19; John 14:2-3; Acts 1:9-11 Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Hebrews 9:28
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins. Romans 5:11; Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12,22
We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ. Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38-39; 19:1-6
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a distinct aspect of the Christian foundational experience with the empowerment to witness, to conquer sin and to live a holy life. Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 19:6
We believe in the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world and the perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian faith. 2 Corinthians 6:14; 7:1; Galatians 5:16-26; Ephesians 5:18
We believe that since the Bible is the inspired Word of God, it is then authoritative in all areas of human behavior, including marriage, family, sexuality, morality, and ethics.
We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as manifested in the Early Church and enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14.
We believe in Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers.
We believe in eternal life for believers (John 3:16; 5:24) and eternal punishment for unbelievers.
We believe that the Bible defines marriage as the covenant relationship between a man and a woman. The importance of this union to society requires that we support and protect marriage as the Word of God does.
