Our Beliefs

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

The Bible is the inspired infallible Word of God. (II Tim. 3:15-17) There is one God, who has revealed himself as Father in creation, Son in redemption and Holy Spirit in regeneration. This one God has one body. In Jesus Christ dwells the fulness of the godhead bodily. (Deut. 6:4; Eph. 4:4-6; Col. 2:9; I Tim. 3:16)

 

All have sinned and need salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith. (Rom. 3:23; Eph. 2:8) Faith is the first step toward salvation. (Heb. 11:6) Believing moves one to action. (Mark 16:16; John 7:38)

 

As Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again, we obey the plan of salvation by repenting (dying to sin), being baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost (resurrection). This is the new birth. (I Cor. 15:1-4; John 3:3-8; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Rom. 6:3-4)

 

We should live a holy life, inwardly and outwardly. (Rom. 12:1; II Cor. 7:1) The gifts of the Spirit are for the church today. (Mark 16:17-18; I Cor. 12:8-10) Jesus is coming again to catch away His church. After death comes the judgment. (I Thess. 4:16-17; II Cor. 5:10; Rev.20:11-15)

 

 

 We believe in Biblical Expressions of Worship        

We pray together outloud
[Acts 4:24] “they lifted up their voice to God with one accord…” 
 
We lift our hands in praise
[Psalm 134:2] “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.” 
 
We sing with all our hearts
[Psalm 98:4] “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.”
 
We play musical instruments
[II Samuel 6:5] “…and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments…”
 
We clap and shout unto God
[Psalm 47:1] “…O clap your hands all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.”
 
We dance in the spirit
[Psalm 150:4] “…Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.”
 
We testify publicly
[Psalm 22:22] “I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.”
 
We anoint with oil for divine healing
[James 5:14] “Is there any sick amoung you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.”
 
We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts
[I Corinthians 14:26] “…when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation…
