What We Believe
We believe in letting the Holy Spirit lead us in our daily lives. We believe that Jesus was fully man and is fully God. We believe He died on the cross for our sins and rose three days later, overcoming death and the grave. We believe that Jesus actively heals today. Jesus has called our ministry to feed the poor, heal the sick and raise to life the broken bringing them back to Jesus.
Our Mission Statement:
Feed the Poor, Heal The Sick, and Raise To Life the Broken.
We believe that the Bible is the absolute Truth and God’s final authority. We believe both the Old and New Testament is the inerrant, verbally inspired, and infallible Word of God.
We believe that there is one true living God who is revealed to us as the Godhead existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and that these three are as one God. We believe that God the Father orders all things according to His own purpose for His own glory. We believe that God the Son is Jesus Christ who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born without sin of the Virgin Mary to redeem man from sin. We believe that God the Holy Spirit is sent from God to convict of sin and righteousness, and to be an indwelling guide, teacher, and source of strength for the believer. We believe that all who receive Christ as Savior are born of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that salvation is through Jesus Christ alone and the atonement and forgiveness He extended to us on the cross. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that man sinned (rebelled against God) and because of the fall, incurred both a physical death and a spiritual death (eternal separation from God). We believe that all human beings are born with a sinful nature. We believe that all who call upon the name of the Lord as Savior will be saved and will spend eternity with God.
We practice baptism by immersion under water—the way Jesus was baptized and the way the Bible commands.
The Bible tells us that every believer is a minister. We encourage every member to find a place of service and ministry. Every believer has direct access to God through prayer and Bible reading.
A Spirit Led Life
We believe that the only way possible to live the Christian life is through God’s power within us. We seek to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit leading and enabling us to follow God’s Word.
We observe the Lord’s Supper as a symbolic act of obedience. Members of the church remember the death of Jesus and anticipate His second coming through taking communion.
Church & The Believer
We believe that a New Testament church is an association of baptized believers. We come together through worship, small groups, and service. As the body of Christ, the church, we have diversity in our gifts and unity in our beliefs. We believe that every believer is called to a holy life of service and should belong to a Bible-believing local church for fellowship and for the furtherance of the Gospel to every person at home and around the globe.
Autonomy of the Local Church
Christ – not a person, group, or religious organization – is the recognized head of the church. We practice self-government and independence from any denominational control and team up with a network of like-minded churches for greater impact. Each congregation determines its own strategy, structure, and style. We have a board of directors and mentors to act as spiritual coverings and provide accountability.
We practice tithing as an act of worship to our Savior and Lord. We recognize that tithing 10% of our income is the starting point, and giving above and beyond that is our privilege.
Spread the Gospel
We practice sharing Christ personally as we exemplify the life of Christ and verbalize the Gospel. It is the responsibility of every Christian to share the Good News of the Gospel with those whom God brings across our path. Of course, we also like to invite friends to church.
Healing & Miracles
We believe that we serve an active God that still performs miracles and heals those in need. We believe in laying of hands during prayer in faith that Jesus will heal, deliver and save. We believe that miracles can happen in the name of Jesus and that our God regularly heals those that are sick and broken. Although we believe in healings and miracles, we follower the Healer, not the Healing. Jesus is who heals the sick and broken, not a person.
Five Fold Ministry
We believe in the Five Fold Ministry and believe that Jesus assigns a person to the office of each ministry to help the church stay accountable, grow, and to stay inline with God's vision for the church. We believe according to the Bible that these 5 Ministry Offices are:
Teachers, Pastors, Evangelist, Prophets and Apostles.
We believe that just as it is the church and pastors that hold the congregation accountable in their walk with Jesus that we as a church must be held accountable too. We believe in a board of elders and directors that provide spiritual covering and accountability to our church. We believe that Jesus is the head of our church and the pastors are called to carry out Gods vision for the church, however the pastors must be held accountable just like the church members. This ensures that Gods vision for the church always comes first.
