What We Believe

Our DNA

These are the core foundations of our ministry and the values that drive us forward.  Jesus is the way and His love compels us to follow in His footsteps!

These following points are head knowledge, but we fully believe in the heart knowledge that comes from knowing Jesus intimately.  Come join us in one of our gatherings to experience the presence of the living God!

The Bible


The Bible is the divinely inspired, living Word of God, revealing the will of God. It is the infallible rule of faith and practice for our journey through life. It is a guide that points us to the truth, which is in Jesus Christ. Without the Word of God, we cannot fully know who God is.

Father God


God is a Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is our Creator and the Creator of the entire universe. He is Almighty, all-knowing, and all-present, yet shows His love for us by giving us the ability to freely choose Him.

The Father is a God of love, mercy, justice, and holiness. He is always looking out for his children, loving them, and caring for them. It breaks His heart to see His children hurting, broken, and separated from Him. The Father desires the very best for his children.

Jesus Christ


Jesus is one with the Father and the Holy Spirit, but for our redemption became Man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He was without sin, both in nature and conduct.

He died to save us, but arose from the dead and ascended to Heaven, where He is at the right hand of God, interceding for us. We look for His return in power and majesty to set up His Kingdom on Earth. In the end, He alone will judge the world in righteousness.

Holy Spirit


Holy Spirit is One with the Father and the Son. He is a Person and is God’s Agent in showing Christ followers their sins through conviction. He regenerates believing sinners and sanctifies consecrated Christians. He magnifies Christ in the lives of believers and energizes them to live victoriously.

Baptism in the Holy Spirit
The baptism in the Holy Spirit is different than water baptism. Jesus told his disciples, "I will baptize with the Holy Spirit and with fire," and to "wait in Jerusalem until you are clothed with power from on high." Being filled with the Holy Spirit empowers us to live the life that Jesus commanded us to live and allows us to access the spiritual gifts available to us.

Salvation


By His death and resurrection, Jesus has won a miraculous salvation for us.  The theological details are below, but just know that through Jesus' work on the cross He paved the way for us to have a loving, life giving, and eternal relationship with Himself and the Father through the Holy Spirit!
Regeneration in which we are forgiven of all sins and brought in to the body of Christ by His Spirit.

Entire sanctification in which we have access to the baptism of the Holy Spirit and cleansed from the carnal mind;

Growth in grace after sanctification in which we walk in new light as it is given and are made more and more like Jesus;

Eternity of spirit and soul.
Jesus' sacrifice is necessary because of our sin. This sin can be described in two parts:
1. Willful disobedience to God’s known law.

2. The corruption in human nature. So all men, Christ excepted, are sinful by nature and sinners by practice, and therefore in need of redemption, because “the wages of sin is death.” However, because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, man becomes free of its sinful nature when that sacrifice is accepted.
