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
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
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
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.
