What Do We Believe?

What Do We Believe?

“Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”

(1 Timothy 4:16, NIV)

There is only one God, and He exists  as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God, lived on the earth, died on a cross, and rose from the dead. Jesus is the only hope for reconciliation between God and man.

(John 3:16, John 14:6, Romans 10:9, Ephesians 2:8-10)

The Bible is God’s Word and is the source of truth, standards, and guidelines for living for all mankind.

(Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21)

The Holy Spirit is active in the Church and in the lives of people today. The baptism in the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to bring power and encouragement to every believer.

(John 7:37-39; John 16:13-15; Acts 2:1-13; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11)

Physical Healing is an important part of the Christian message. Deliverance from sickness is provided through Christ, and is available to all believers.

(Isaiah  53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16)

Jesus Christ will return at any time to take to heaven all that believe in Him before the end of time occurs.

(Matthew 24:30-31; I Thessalonians 4:15-18; I Corinthians 15:52-55)

God’s Will for Provision

It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy, and successful in all areas of life. But, because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provision in order to better serve others.

(Luke 24:36-39; John 2:19-22, 20:26-28; Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42-44; Philippians 1:21-23)

After living one life on earth the non-believers will be judges by God and sent to Hell where they will be eternally tormented with the devil and fallen angels.
