What We Believe

"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers." -Acts 2:42


The Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and  Christian living (See 2 Timothy 3:15-17).


There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. He is both God and Man (See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16).


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creation
(See Genesis 1:16-37; Genesis 2).

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time (See Genesis 3).


Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (See Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8-9)

The Gospel and Salvation

The saving gospel is the "good news" that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit--which was always accompanied by a sign in the book of Acts, namely speaking in tongues -- as the Spirit gives utterance (resurrection). This is also referred to as the New Birth experience (See Acts 2:4; Acts 2:36-39; John 3:3-5; Mark 16:16; Acts 19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 6:3-4).

The Church

The Church is the visible body and bride of Christ and exists to glorify God and proclaim the gospel. Every believer is a priest and can go directly to God in prayer without needing a go-between (See Romans 12:5; Ephesians 5:25-27; Revelation 19:7-9, Revelation 21:1-2; 1 Peter 2:5-9).

Christian Living

As Christians we are to love God and others. We must live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today (See Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10).

The Future Ressurection

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.  The righteous will become like Christ and will have eternal life with Him, while the unrighteous will receive eternal death (See 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15).
