WHAT WE BELIEVE

THE BIBLE

We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)

THE TRINITY

We believe in one, eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
(Genesis 1:1, John 14:16-17, Matthew 28:19, John 17:11, 1 John 4:16)

SIN

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
(Isaiah 59:2, Psalm 51:1-3, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23)

SALVATION

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life doing only what He saw His Father do. Jesus died on the cross in our place and rose again to prove His victory and give us victory over sin, empowering us, via His grace, for life.
(Isaiah 53:4-6, John 1:1-14, John 14:6, Colossians 2:13-15, 1 Corinthians 15:20)

FORGIVENESS

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ (be born again) we must repent of our sins, confess and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
(John 3:3, Acts 2:38, Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 John 1:9)

BAPTISMS

We believe that in order to live the holy (set apart) and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit teaches us and enables us to use spiritual gifts including speaking in tongues.
(Mark 16:16, Matthew 3:11, Hebrews 6:2, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4, Galatians 5:22-23, John 16:8)

SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE

We believe in the Spirit filled, Spirit-led life: a life of separation from the world, perfecting holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian faith.
(Ephesians 5:18, 1 Corinthians 6:14, Romans 8:11)

GATHERINGS

We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for worship, the preaching of the Word, fellowship, prayer and the “breaking of bread’.
(Matthew 16:17-19, Acts 2:42, Hebrews 10:25)

COMMUNION

We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers.
(1 Corinthians 11:23-29)

PURPOSE

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church, serve the community in which we live, and go into the world preaching the gospel.
(John 4:23-24, Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:10, Mark 16:15)

BLESSING

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and whole lives in order to help others more effectively.
(Genesis 3:12, Joshua 1:8, Matthew 8:16-17, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 3 John 1:2, 2 Corinthians 9:11)

GIVING

We believe in tithes that belong to the Lord, offerings that are given willingly, and benevolence that is given to the poor. We believe prosperity is the will of God for every believer and is always to be associated with God’s purpose.
(Deuteronomy 8:18, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 8:9; 9:6-15, Malachi 3:10, Luke 6:38)

ETERNITY

We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
(John 3:36, John 5:28-29, 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, Revelation 20:11-15)

THE LORD'S RETURN

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
(John 14:1-3, Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
