Vision

We love God and people, and we want to change the world.

Scripture Focus

“That in all things Jesus Christ our Lord might have preeminence” (Colossians 1:18).

We believe that Christ must have first place in everything we say and do.

Purpose

To bring people to salvation through a life-changing relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and to disciple and train them to help build the Kingdom of God.

God's Word

“Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee” (Psalm 119:11). “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

Worship

“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24).

Evangelism

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:19-20).

Function

To be a “spiritual hospital” (through the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit) for the total healing of body, soul, and spirit.

Witnessing

​​“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28: 19-20).

What We Believe:

Twelve Foundational Truths

​​

  1. God’s Holy Spirit divinely inspired the entire Bible. (I Timothy 3:16)

  2. The one true God is revealed through the scriptures as Father, Son,  and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19II Corinthians 13:14)

  3. Man was created good and in the image of God, but through voluntary transgression was lost and is spiritually    dead. (Genesis 1:27,3:6-7I Corinthians 15:21-22)

  4. God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to redeem mankind from sin. Jesus was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, both man and God. Jesus Christ, shed His blood on the cross, was buried,  and rose from the dead to become the perfect sacrifice for sin and to redeem mankind from sin, sickness, and death. (Isaiah 53:3-12Luke 1:26-35)

  5. Salvation may be obtained only by God’s grace. God grants repentance to us, and when we accept by faith the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ, we are saved. (Hebrews 6:1-2Ephesians 2:8-9Romans 6:23)

  6. Water baptism, by immersion in water for the remission of sins and the circumcision of heart, is commanded for all that have repented of their sins. (Acts 2:38Colossians 2:11-12Romans 6:4-6)

  7. The Baptism with the Holy Spirit is a divine encounter through which the Holy Spirit imparts to believers power to witness. It is evidenced by speaking in other tounges and other manifestations. (John 1:33; Acts 1:5-82:1-4, 19:1-6)

  8. Christ ordained the Lord’s Supper for born-again believers. It is to be taken with a pure heart and a clear conscience in remembrance of the Lord Jesus Christ, as often as the Spirit of God directs. (I Corinthians 11:23-24)

  9. Born-again Christians may receive spiritual impartation by the laying on of hands by other anointed believers. (Hebrews 6:2;  I Timothy 4:14-15)

  10. Every believer is to live a holy, separated life that is guided, led, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. (Acts 1:8I Corinthians 12:7-11)

  11. The New Testament provides order for the local church in its government, worship, and structure. (Titus 1:5-91 Timothy 3:1-15I Peter 5:1-4)

  12. We believe in the second bodily coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and that the saints in Christ Jesus will rule and reign with Him for all eternity. (I Thessalonians 4:15-18Revelation 22:1-7)
