WHAT WE BELIEVE
Written and Spoken Word
The Bible is the Word of God, and all Scripture has been given by God to humanity, revealing God’s nature and ultimate plan of redemption and restoration. God’s Word is “Spirit-breathed” which means that God’s Word is His very thoughts and will. The Bible is authoritative and is backed by the Great Holy Spirit and will come to pass. God still speaks today, and the way He speaks is by His Spirit on the earth today. The Great Holy Spirit is God and continues to speak His will to all through His prophets as well as to those who hear His voice. This method of communication is His spoken Word because it stems from God Himself and is as authoritative as Scripture because they are the very words from God Himself (2 Timothy 3:14-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Hebrews 4:12; Jeremiah 1:7-9).
We believe that the physical universe and everything that exists was created by God. God’s very creation reveals His existence, eternal power, and divine nature (Genesis 1:1; Romans 1:19-20).
We believe in one God revealed in three distinct Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three Persons of the Godhead are one and are coequal in power, nature, and glory (Matthew 28:19-20; Ephesians 2:18).
The Humanity and Deity of Christ
We believe that King Jesus was conceived of the Great Holy Spirit and born of a virgin to redeem sinful humanity. King Jesus, the eternal Son of God, took upon Himself the form of man and became the God-Man, becoming fully God and fully man. King Jesus lived a sinless life and became the only sacrifice for the sins of the world. King Jesus was resurrected from the dead and now sits at the right hand of the Father in Heaven (Romans 5:6-11; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Luke 1:31-38; John 3:16-17; Ephesians 1:20-21; Acts 1:2-4; Hebrews 8:1-2; 1 Corinthians 15:1-58; Philippians 2:5-11).
The Great Holy Spirit
We believe the Great Holy Spirit is coequal with God the Father and God the Son. The Great Holy Spirit is on the earth today convicting the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. The Great Holy Spirit is our Helper and the Spirit of truth. He indwells and seals every believer at spiritual birth and empowers them for service (John 14:15-18; John 15:26, John 16:5-15; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:1-4; Romans 8:15-17; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Ephesians 1:13-14).
We believe God created humans in His image and likeness to fellowship with Him and give Him glory. Due to Adam and Eve’s rebellion against God, all humans are born into sin with a sinful nature. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Because of sin, humans can only be redeemed by having faith in Jesus Christ (Genesis 1:26-27; John 3:16-18; Romans 3:23-26).
Salvation is a covenant connection with the One True God. This covenant of salvation comes through having a relationship with King Jesus. King Jesus is the only way to Heaven, the Perfect Sacrifice for the sins of every human. Through salvation in King Jesus, we have eternal life (John 3:3-8; John 14:6; Acts 4:10-12; Romans 10:8-13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 3:23-26; Romans 6:23).
We believe the Church is the spiritual Body of King Jesus (the Head, Shepherd) and includes all believers (those who trust in King Jesus) from all over the world (1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 1:22-23; Acts 2:47).
The Second Coming
We believe that King Jesus will return to Earth. He will also resurrect and judge all humanity (John 14:1-3; Philippians 3:20-21; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:20-28; Revelation 20:11-15).
