Our Mission

Sharing God’s Word & Sharing our Lives by building a Christ-centered, Bible-based, Spirit-filled, New Testament Church – consisting of people of diverse ethnicities, cultures, races & generations.

Our Vision

We see a Church that is able to influence, envision, and care for individuals, families and its community with the message of the Gospel, power of God, and the lifestyle of followers of Jesus.

Our Beliefs

Scripture

We believe in the inerrant original writings, infallible and God-breathed accepted canon of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, the final authority for faith, theology, moral and ethical lifestyle of the Christians.

God, Himself

We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Creation

We believe in the creation, test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis, as well as our total spiritual depravity and inability to attain divine righteousness.

The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man.

Christ's Death and Resurrection

We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples.

Christ's Bodily Ascension

We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation and personal, literal and bodily coming again the second time for the Church.

Salvation by Grace through Faith

We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins.

Water Baptism

We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation.

The Gifts of the Spirit

We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14, as manifested in the Early Church.

Marriage

We believe in the sanctity of marriage as established by the Holy Scriptures and that God created marriage and marriage is the joining of one man and one woman.

Healing

We believe in the healing of the body by Divine Power, or Divine healing in its varied aspects as practiced in the Early Church.

Communion

We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers.

Eternal Life

We believe in eternal life for believers and eternal punishment for unbelievers.

Satan and His Judgement

We believe in the reality and personality of Satan and eternal judgment of Satan and his angels.
