What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

1. The BIBLE is the Word of God|
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize
what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is
right. 17  God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.

(2 Timothy 3:16-17 NLT)

For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God
which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is,

the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.

(1 Thessalonians 2:13)

God’s Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority, and we accept it as our
manual for living. Our first question when faced with a decision is, “What does the Bible
say?” We practice daily Bible reading and Bible study. The Bible is the basis for all we

2. JESUS CHRIST is the Son of God
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but
through Me.” (John 14:6)

For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, “The stone that you
builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.” 12  There is salvation in no one else!
God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.
(Acts 4:11-12 NLT)

Jesus Christ (the second Person of the Trinity) lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily
paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all
who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator
between God and us. He baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit and will return to earth to
consummate history.

3. You must be BORN AGAIN
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold,
new things have come. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will
find it. (Matthew 16:25)

God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully going
their own way. As a result, we need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from Him.
Salvation comes only through God’s grace – not human effort – and must be received
personally by repentance and faith. At the end, everyone will experience bodily resurrection
and the judgment. Only believers will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.

4. Believers can be Spirit-FILLED and Spirit-LED
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My
witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.                  (Acts 1:8 HCSB)

Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18 NLT)

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will
your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him. (Luke 11:13 NLT)
We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us.
Every believer can be filled with the Holy Spirit by simply asking. We seek to practice a
daily dependence on God’s Spirit to enable us to do what is right.
