 What We Believe



What We Believe!

We believe that the Bible is Godís Word to man: inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative.

We believe that God is a Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are co-equal and co-eternal as Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent, Eternal, Righteous, Sovereign and One God!

We believe that God created the heavens and the earth.

We believe that man is fallen because of Adam and Eve and is in need of salvation.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and God the Son who was born of a virgin as a human being, lived a sinless life on earth, died an atoning death, and arose bodily from the grave and now sits on the Right Hand of the Father as our high priest, intercessor, mediator, and advocate.




We believe that salvation is for all individuals and that salvation is a free gift from God through Christ to all who repent, confess, and believe. We believe faith is a gift from God to believe.

We believe that all believers are justified by faith.

We believe that sanctification is a post-conversion experience in which the believer acknowledges the Lordship of Jesus Christ and lives the life of spiritual obedience to God and God's Will. Sanctification occurs at the new birth in that the old things are passed away and historical sin is forgiven; before the baptism with the Holy Spirit in that the sin nature is crucified with Christ and the believer now continues to live a consecrated life; a process in life in which we are being sanctified daily as we grow in grace; and in the final culmination where we are made sinlessly perfect as we are changed from corruptible to incorruptible on the Day of Glorification!

We believe in the anointing, boldness, and baptism with the Holy Spirit which includes speaking in tongues as an initial evidence.



We believe in the fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit for evangelism, Christian witness, personal integrity, ministry, character, conduct, edification, and ministry.  It is our belief that Christians must cultivate and develop the fruit of the Spirit so they are able to live a life of charity. We believe in the perpetuity of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the providential place of the New Testament Church and we advocate for the networking of the body of Christ in our apostolic age. We recognize the value of denominations and we believe strongly in the networking of Christian clusters for apostolic ventures and visions. We believe in the diversity of the body and not in the centralization of ecclesiastical authority and ecumenicalism.

We do not agree with centralization of ecclesiastical structure in a global church, but in the diversity of the body of Christ throughout the world. We believe that the true body of Christ is made up of people of diverse cultures, languages, and geographical empowerments. And while we appreciate the witness and testimony of the western world, we respect the diverse body of Christ that believes in the truth and proclaims salvation through Jesus Christ.

We believe it is the privilege and place of all believers to share our faith and salvation message and experience to the lost and to strengthen the body of Christ with Godís Word.

We believe that Jesus Christ is coming soon to rapture His Bride away and that during the Tribulation Period there will be companies of saints going up to be part of the Triumphant Church. We draw a distinction between the Bride of Christ and the Body of Christ, the Church. The Bride of Christ is the overcomers in the body of believers. 

We believe that we are the carriers of the healing word to a hurting world. It is Godís Will for us to be holy, honest, humble, and happy and to experience the abundant life in Jesus Christ.



We believe that it is the Will of God for us to find inner peace and vibrant resilience and joy in our walk with God. We also believe that it is Godís Will for us to share and show love to others, even those who we may disagree with, and to confront people with the truth so they can discover the truth in their processes and providential journeys.

We believe that it is our place to shine our light to others so they may see our good works and glorify God who is in Heaven.

We believe that there is a final place of Heaven and a place of judgment called Hell.

We believe in the five (four)- fold ministry which includes the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher for the purpose of strengthening, increasing, and expanding the ministry of influence of the body of Jesus Christ. We respect those in the body of Christ that do not believe in the perpetuity of these servant-ministries.

We believe that is it Godís Will for every individual to experience conversion and transformation in his or her personal life and that we are called with purpose as Children of Destiny!

We believe that it is Godís Will for us to follow Him in Biblical obedience and that He has required of us to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God. And with these principles, we are to love God, our families, our neighbors, other Christian people, people of different perspectives than our own, ourselves, and our enemies in Biblical ways so as to speak the truth in love!


We believe that it is the goal of every believer to have the Mind of Christ and to live in the balance of a Godly heart in a real world.
