Statements of Faith:

  • We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, inerrant and inspired in its original writings; the complete and final revelation of God. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21
  • We believe in one God, personal and knowable, Who manifests Himself in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Deut. 6:4; John 6:27; Acts 5:3-4; 1 John 5:20
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, born of a virgin, without sin and that He died on the cross for our sins, was buried, rose again from the dead and ascended bodily back to heaven. 1 Timothy 3:16; John 1:1-14; 20:30-31
  • We believe that all persons are sinners, guilty before God, deserving of judgment, and in need of a Savior, Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 3:19-26: 5:12-21
  • We believe that salvation from sin, death and hell is by God’s grace, based on the work of Jesus Christ alone, and is received by faith apart from any human performance or merit. John 14:6; Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2:1-10
  • We believe that all believers in Jesus Christ are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and that He empowers those believers who obey God and separate from sinful habits and lifestyles. John 14:16-18: Ephesians 5:15-21
  • We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a subsequent experience to the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, it is available to all believers; provides power to be a witness, and is evidenced by speaking in tongues and other charismatic gifts. Acts 1:8; 2:4; 10:44-48; I Corinthians 12:1-11
  • We believe in the eternal punishment of the unbeliever in hell and the eternal life of the believer in heaven. Matthew 25:46; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-10; Revelation 20:11-15; John 14:1-3
  • We believe in the visible, bodily return of Christ to this earth to judge the world and to claim His Bride, The Church. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7
  • We believe that all believers should assemble in local churches for mutual edification, encouragement, evangelism, service and worship. Acts 14:21-27; Ephesians 4:1-16
  • We believe in divine healing for the human body based on the work of Christ, made available through the prayer of faith. 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:14-15
  • We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of the church and should be practiced regularly by all believers. Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-10
  • This local church was founded in 1978 to advance God’s redemptive call to the nations, through our Lord Jesus Christ. We are a congregation “ON THE MOVE”!

Water Baptism:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)

Baptism is a New Testament Commandment that follows a confession of faith in Jesus Christ. It is washing with water (total immersion), symbolizing a cleansing from sin, linked with repentance and admission into faith and salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. Baptism should take place as soon as possible after salvation. It is for those who are mature enough to make a personal commitment to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. It is our policy not to baptize children until they have reached at lest ten years of age and can testify clearly to have experienced salvation.
