There is only one living and true God. There are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is totally and completely Holy.
Genesis 1:2, 27; Matthew 28:19; I John 5:7

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20, 21

We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is the only begotten Son of the Father. Jesus was crucified, buried and rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as our Intercessor.
Luke 1:26-33; Hebrews 7:25

People can be united with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Anyone who accepts and believes in Jesus’ death for his or her personal sins, receives forgiveness for every sin. Upon this personal decision, God re-establishes a personal relationship with that person and gives eternal life. We believe the eternal destination of life or death is determined by our response to Jesus Christ.
Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; John 14:6

Once we receive Christ, we are empowered to live in a new way. We are free through Jesus’ work on the Cross and can live out a life of integrity.
John 3:3; Titus 3:5; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; II Cor.5:17-21

With the Baptism in the Holy Spirit comes the power for life and service, the gifts given by the Holy Spirit are for ministry to the body of Christ and to reach out to people.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
Acts 1:10-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7

We believe the Church is built on Jesus, the Christ, and it is His expression in the Earth. His hands and heart are reaching out to all people with love and grace.
