Our Statement of Faith

The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man’s problems. – 2 Timothy 3:16–17; 2 Peter 1:20–21

There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. – John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5–7

God is Love, and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed, or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted.  – Psalm 68:5–6; 1 John 4:16

Man is created in God’s image but separated from Him by sin. Therefore, without Jesus, we cannot have a relationship with God. – Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5

We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation – God’s free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do; it is only available through God’s unearned favor (or grace). By admitting we have sinned; by believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; and by accepting Christ as Lord, we can spend eternity with God. – Ephesians 2:8–9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24

We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. – Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13–17

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. The Holy Spirit helps empower believers to develop the character of Christ and to live every day in God’s will. – Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4

God gives all believers spiritual gifts. They are for the strengthening of God’s people (the Church) and are proof of God’s existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today. – 1 Corinthians 12:4–11; 1 Peter 4:10

Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God’s character to be developed in us. – Romans 6:19; Galatians 5:22–25

Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Divine healing includes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual restoration. – Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1

The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God’s desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to atone for our sins. – Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12–15; John 3:16–18

Jesus will return, and He will take all those who have accepted Him as Savior to heaven for eternity. – Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13–17; Hebrews 9:28
