Beliefs

GOD is the creator and father of all mankind. He is a covenant keeping whose ways and attributes are revealed in Scripture and never change.

THE BIBLE is the inspired, inerrant, and sufficient Word of God. It is compromised of the Old and New Testaments and is our guide in every area of life and faith.

JESUS THE MESSIAH eternally existed with God the Father. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, preached the gospel, died on the cross for the forgiveness of mankind’s sin, rose from the dead, and ascended to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us.

THE HOLY SPIRIT with the Father and Son formed man in the image of God. The Spirit convicts of sin and regenerates our spirits. We are empowered to witness and grow in sanctification with the help of the Holy Spirit.

SIN AND SALVATION are contrasted in Romans five through eight. We are all born in sin and without hope until drawn by the Father to salvation. Salvation was accomplished by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Salvation is received by hearing the Word preached, repenting of sin, and making Jesus Lord over every area of our lives. Salvation includes freedom from sin, a renewed heart and healing for the spirit, emotions and body.

LAW AND GRACE are not in opposition to each other. The law is holy, just and good and revives our soul. The grace of God enables us to live for Jesus which includes walking in the ways of Jesus which include the moral law.

THE CHURCH is comprised of all of those who are saved. The Church is commissioned to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Individual churches are to be lead by a pastor and elders and supported by evangelists and prophets. these offices are to help grow and guide the church in its ministry and exercise of spiritual gifts. The ordinances of the church are baptism and communion.

ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE are foremost in the plan of God. Israel is the covenant land of the Jewish people promised by God in Genesis. The Jewish people were trusted with the Word of God. The Gospel is to the Jew first and then to the Greek. the Church has not replaced the Jews but have been grafted in to a Jewish root.

THE RETURN OF THE LORD first for the catching away of the church. Secondly, the millennial reign, and third, the final judgment; the reward of the righteous and the punishment of the wicked.
