Our core beliefs


We believe

  • The Bible, as originally given by God, is divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice;
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons-Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was fully God, yet fully man, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life, performing many miracles;
  • We acknowledge His substitutionary death, resurrection, ascension and individual mediation for us, and eagerly await His personal return in power and glory;
  • Man is sinful and separated from God, and a reunion, called salvation, is possible only by faith in Jesus Christ, apart from works, through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit;
  • The Holy Spirit indwells the believer and enables us to live in obedience to the Scriptures, to live a holy life, and to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;
  • The Holy Spirit baptizes all true believers into the church, that is the Body of Christ;
  • Jesus Christ will return to the earth a second time to set up and establish His kingdom forever. Prior to this great event, He will return in the air to rapture all who have received Him as Lord and Savior;
  • Everyone will be resurrected, the saved to everlasting life, the unsaved to everlasting torment.
