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.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and the inerrant Word of God. [2 Tim 3:15-17; 2 Pet 1:21]
We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. [Gen 1:1; Deut 6:4; Matt 28:19; John 10:30]
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 3:16-19; John 5:24; Rom 3:23, 5:8-9; Eph 2:8-10; Titus 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 8:9; 1 Cor 12:12-13; Gal 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, 6:19-20; Eph 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].
