What we Believe
We believe in the Trinity - the Godhead - who is one existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In Christ is the fullness of the Godhead which also fills believers without shortage, lack, or leaking.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and that He is the only way, the truth, and the life. We believe He is the unchanging Word of God in flesh, was born of a virgin, performed miracles, healed the sick, raised the dead, cast out demons, cleansed the lepers, and demonstrated the perfect will and kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. We believe Jesus was crucified, died on a cross, rose on the third day, and is now seated at the right hand of God. We believe God is love and that the abundant goodness of God was and is expressed through Jesus.
We believe salvation (to be saved, healed, and delivered) is to be in Christ. That is, to confess that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead. We believe salvation does not come by works, self-effort, or striving. We believe we are saved by grace through faith and that the finished work of the cross which reconciled us to God is not held in the balance of our own efforts. We believe God so loved the world that He sent His Son, full of grace and truth, to reconcile the world to Himself, not willing that any should perish but that all come to repentance.
We believe the Bible is inspired and empowered by God, infallible and authoritative. We believe it is to be viewed through the lens of the New Covenant by which we now live - this side of the cross.
We believe the Holy Spirit seals our salvation and that Jesus baptizes believers with His Holy Spirit to empower them to do the works He did and greater. The Holy Spirit testifies of Jesus Christ, convicts the world of unbelief in Him, and confirms the Word of God that is preached with signs and wonders following. This includes but is not limited to a manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit. We believe the fruit of the Spirit emulates Christ in us - the hope of glory - as we are new creations, seated in heavenly realms with Him.
We believe the church/body of Christ is commissioned to share the Gospel, or Good News, of Jesus Christ to all the world, demonstrating His love, joy, peace, and power to the nations.
