Our Faith


We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God (II Timothy 3:15-17, I Thessalonians 2:13, II Peter 1:21).

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4, Exodus 3:14, Isaiah 48:16, Matthew 28:19, Luke 3:22).

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His future bodily return to this earth (Matthew 1:23, John 5:22-23).

We believe that the only means of personal salvation is faith in Christ, and in Him alone (Romans 10:9-10, Galatians 3: 1-9, I Corinthians 2:1-5, Ephesians 2:8-10).

We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ (Acts 4:12, Romans 5:8-13, 10:9, James 1:21, Ephesians 2:8, Hebrews 9:13-14).

We believe that all who put their faith in Christ receive the Holy Spirit dwelling in their heart, and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is an ongoing life-giving experience available to all believers who ask for it (Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-8, 8:12-17, 10:44-46, I Corinthians 12:1-31).

We believe that regeneration and empowerment by the Holy Spirit is essential for the process of sanctification and moral purity in this life (Titus 3:5).

We believe the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer (Matthew 8:16-17, Acts 5:16, James 5:14-16).

We believe in the Blessed Hope, that is the second coming of Christ in bodily form (Acts 24:15, Romans 8:22-25, 1 Thessalonians 4:13, 1 John 3:2-3).

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation (Matthew 25:31-46, Acts 24:15, I Thessalonians 4:16-17 Revelation 20:11-15).

We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of our ministry, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.
