About God…
There is only one true God. He is the eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternal, self-existent, and one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

About the Bible…
The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

About Creation…
Man was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him. Because we willfully rejected the Lordship and Glory of God for which we were intended, sickness, death and judgment entered the world. Now all creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.

About Jesus…
Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, Mary. Jesus is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to bring God’s Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven. He is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is “all God” and “all man.”

About Salvation…
We are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. 

About the Holy Spirit…
The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters. It is the Holy Spirit who lives in us and enables us to live a holy life and minister supernaturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have God’s power to be His witnesses.

About Satan…
The victorious, redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of satan. Jesus came to destroy every work of the devil.

About the Church…
The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus instructed His church to be baptized and take communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God. 

About the Future…
We believe that God’s government is ever-increasing and that Jesus will return in visible Glory to rule and reign with His overcoming bride – the Church. Heaven and Hell are real places.  There will be a resurrection of the saved and lost, the one to everlasting life and the other ot everlasting death.
