WHAT WE BELIEVE

Our great desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations, as such. We are opposed to the emphasis of non-biblical teachings that divide the Body of Christ. We believe that the true basis of Christian fellowship is God's love, which is greater than our differences. Without His love, we have no right to say we are Christians. 

  • WE BELIEVE worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore, we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.

  • WE BELIEVE worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore, we give a great place to music in our worship. 

  • WE BELIEVE worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teachings so God may instruct us how He would be worshiped. 

  • WE BELIEVE worship of God is fruitful! Therefore, we look for his love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshiping Him.


DOCTRINAL BELIEFS

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and the inerrant Word of God.  [2 Tim 3:15-172 Pet 1:21]

  • We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. [Gen 1:1Deut 6:4Matt 28:19John 10:30]

  • We believe in the deity of Christ [John 10:33]; His virgin birth [Isa 7:14Matt 1:23Luke 1:34-35]; His sinless life [Heb 4:15, 7:26]; His miracles [John 2:11]; His vicarious and atoning death [1 Cor 15:3Eph 1:7Heb 2:9]; His resurrection [John 11:251 Cor 15:4]; His ascension to the right hand of the Father [Mark 16:19]; His personal return to earth in power and glory [Acts 1:11Rev 19:11-16].

  • We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace through faith alone are we saved [John 3:16-19John 5:24Rom 3:23, 5:8-9Eph 2:8-10Titus 3:5].

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation [John 5:28-29].

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of the believers in our Lord Jesus Christ [Rom 8:91 Cor 12:12-13Gal 3:26-28].

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life [Rom 8:13-14;1 Cor 3:16, 6:19-20Eph 4:30, 5:18].

  • We believe that we as Christians are examples of the love of God in this world. It is this (agape) love that we desire to possess and without which we have no right to call ourselves Christians [1 John 4:16-17].
