Statement of FaithWe believe worship of God should be spiritual. We remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We believe worship of God should be inspirational. We place great importance on music in our worship.
We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God that He might instruct us how He would be worshipped.
We believe worship of God is fruitful. We look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshipping Him.
We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
We believe all the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and are the infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings; His substitutionary atoning death; bodily resurrection; ascension into heaven; perpetual intercession for His people; and personal, visible return to earth. We believe that He is one and the same as God.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower in ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Spirit as reflected through the fruit of that same Spirit.
We believe all people are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates, by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, either at the time of or subsequent to regeneration.
We believe in the universal Church, in the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church: 1) baptism, and 2) the Lord's Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the empowering Spirit for service, subsequent to or simultaneously with the indwelling Spirit for salvation.
We believe in the laying on of hands for the sending out of pastors and missionaries, and in conjunction with anointing of oil by the elders for healing of the sick.
We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishment of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body; the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous; and endless suffering of the wicked.
We believe in what is termed "THE APOSTLES CREED" as embodying fundamental facts of the Christian faith.
We focus on a "personal relationship" with God through worship and prayer, and the teaching of the Word of God. We teach both expository and topical studies. We do not allow speaking loudly in tongues or the interruption of our services with prophesy if there is a bible study in progress. It is not that we do not hold to the use of these gifts, but we believe that everything should be done decently and in order. We believe that when the gift of teaching is going forth, God will not interrupt Himself with some other manifestation of the Holy Spirit. We allow the exercise of spiritual gifts in every service, but the vocal gifts such as tongues, interpretation, and prophecy are operated in our Believers Services. ("And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets."
1 Corinthians. 14:32)
Concerning evangelism, we do outreach ministries all over; however, our main belief concerning evangelism is that "sheep beget sheep." If we continue to feed the flock of God and keep a fire under them, they will in turn be submitted to God and have that burden to lead people to Christ. We do put together strictly evangelistic events and missions. We have an active ministry in missions throughout several countries.
