Tenets of Faith

  • We Believe in a one living and true GOD, eternal in His existence, with unlimited power, Creator of all things, with three distinct persons: God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and that He is sovereign and absolute in His authority. Matt.3:13-17, Eph.4:4-6
  • We Believe that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, is the Word made flesh through the virgin Mary, making Him two natures, a true man and a true God (Divine), a complete Deity, supernatural conception and virgin birth, therefore He is the one and only true Savior. John 3:16-17
  • We Believe He (Jesus) lived a sinless life and died a vicarious and atoning death. Salvation is made possible through the sacrificial work of Jesus Christ on the cross, that we are saved by Grace and Faith(regeneration) by His bodily resurrection for our justification, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His future return (Second Coming) to this earth in power and glory to rule and reign forever. John 3:16, Eph.2:19-20, Romans 3:24-25, 2Corin.5:17, 1Corin.1:30
  • We Believe that sanctification is a definitive, yet progressive work of grace in the life of a believer beginning with the new birth through consummation, until the revelation of Jesus Christ. 11Corin.3:18,11Peter 3:18, 1Thess 5:23, Heb. 12:14
  • We Believe in the ordinances of the church, water baptism by total immersion is a direct commandment of the Lord for all believers after accepting Christ as your personal Savior and that it is a testimony of death to sin and a resurrection to a new life which is symbolic of our identification of Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and Holy communion (Lord’s Supper) a unique time in the presence of the Lord through the body and blood taken in remembrance of Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross. Acts 19:4-5, Romans 6: 3-4, Matt.28:19, Acts8:36-38, 1Corin.11:23-29
  • We Believe in the blessing, dedication, and setting apart of children. Mark 10:16
  • We Believe all human life begins at conception, all deserve the right to live and that right should be celebrated and protected. Deut.30:19                                   
  • We Believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from GOD available to all believers and is a second work of grace received after salvation, it is the initial sign of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. John 14:16-17,     Acts 1:8,2:4
  • We Believe in the 5-fold ministry given to the church at the ascension of Jesus-the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers. Working with them- the Elders, Deacon/Deaconess and the gifted men and women of the church. Eph.4:11, 1Corin.11:27
  • We Believe the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, in its entirety all 66 books, given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, as infallible, authoritative, without error, as GOD’S revealed Word to man. Matt.5:17-18, 2 Tim 3:16-17, Romans 1:16
  • We Believe in Divine healing provided through the atoning blood of Jesus, He bore all our infirmities and has encouraged the calling for the elders of the church the anointing of with oil, and the prayer of faith as illustrated in His life and ministry. Isa. 53:5, James 5:14-16, Matt.8:16-17
  • We Believe there shall be a bodily resurrection of all dead. The righteous, who shall go into life Eternal, and the unrighteous, who shall go into everlasting punishment into the lake of fire and brimstone. Matt.25:31-46, Romans 1:28-32, Rev. 20:4-6,10-15, Rev. 21:7-8
  • We Believe repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation. Acts 2:21; 3:19; 1 John 1:9
  • We Believe in the Blessed Hope(Rapture), Jesus will gather up both the dead and those alive in Christ to be caught up in the clouds to meet Him unto the general assembly and church of the firstborn in heaven before the Tribulation.  1Thess.1:9-10,4:13-18; John 14:1-3; Titus 2:13; Heb.12:22-23
  • We Believe in the second coming of Christ literally to the earth after the Tribulation followed by the Millennial Reign. Zech. 14: 3-4; Rev.19:11-16, 20:1-15; Titus 2:13                                                                                           
  • We Believe in GOD’S will of provision for believers to become whole, healthy, and successful in all areas of life.  We must seek the full benefits in order to better serve others:    
    • Spiritual: Romans 10: 9-10
    • Mental/Emotional: Isa. 26:3
    • Physical: 2 Peter 2:24
    • Financial: Joshua 1:8, Malachi 3:10-11
  • We Believe in the cheerful giving of tithes and offerings, according to the Scriptural patterns.    Malachi 3:8-12
  • We Believe that any form of sexual immorality (including, but not limited to), adultery, fornication (including, but not limited to sexual relations between a man and woman outside the bonds of GOD’S established covenant of marriage). homosexual behavior and conduct, bisexual behavior and conduct, bestiality, incest, polygamy, lust, and the use of pornography is sinful and offensive to GOD.  Lev 20 10:21, Eph. 5: 1-5, Rev. 21:8, 1Corin. 6:9-10, Mark 10:5-9; Gen. 2:24, Matt. 19:9
  • We Believe in the ordained marriage covenant between one man and one woman, both as biologically designed by GOD at birth, the only acceptable form. Gen. 2:18, 21-24; Matt.19:4-5; Mark 10:5-9; 1 Corin 7:2-6,9; Eph. 5:22-33
    • * Let it be known, because GOD has ordained marriage that it is a covenant relationship between both a biologically born man and biologically born woman, we will only recognize this covenant as He does. All staff, All, will only participate in weddings and solemnize marriages after biology is confirmed as designed and created by GOD, 1 man and 1 woman biologically born as such. *
