WE BELIEVE

 

THE HOLY BIBLE & SCRIPTURES 

We believe the Holy Bible [ KJV version ] is the divinely inspired Word of God in its entirety.   We also Believe that the Word is infallible and it does not contradict itself.   It is the final authority, manual or guide left for Christian believers to follow.   We believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Savior, the Living Son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross in the place of our sin.   Who defeated Death & Hell and was raised from the grave and ascended on high and is seated on the right hand of the Father; who forever reigns as the King of Glory, the King of Kings…. and the Lord Most High.

THE BIBLE, THE CHURCH & CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS
 
We believe “Born Again Christian Believers” are Ambassadors of Christ Jesus, founded on the infallible Word of God.  We believe, preach, and promote the sacred Full Gospel of the Holy Scriptures in its totality through the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit.  We believe the Bible is God’s Word, it’s accurate and it is the final authority for all.  We believe regularly attending Worship Service, Bible Study, Fellowship, Prayer, the “Breaking of Bread;” and any other godly classes are essential to all Christian Believers.  Attendance to these types of godly events encourage spiritual growth in God and equips each Believer with what is needed to spread the Gospel of Jesus to a dying world.   
 
Matthew 16:18-19, 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47, 5:11-14, 13:1-3, 14:23, 16:5, 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22, 3:10-12, 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18, 3:15; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3
 
 
 
THE TRINITY / THE GODHEAD
 
We believe in the Trinity/Triune God,  Meaning God is three divine persons in one (God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit).
We believe, teach and proclaim that they are three persons in one and have both distinct personalities and distinct roles.  Yet they are absolutely one in “substance, essence and nature..”   God’s nature being, “What One Is” which is seen through His ways; while the Triune person is, “Who One Is” which manifests’ the Godhead of each role and responsibility that He eternally is.
 
1 John 5:7; John 1:14, 14:28, 16:28; John 15:26; Deuteronomy 6:4
 
 
GOD THE FATHER 
We believe in the One Eternal Sovereign God who is the Monarch of the Universe and the Creator of all things.  We believe that God the Father, is “Omniscient,” All Knowing and Infinite in All Wisdom,”  “Omnipresent,” Present at All-Times and “Omnipotent” All-Powerful.”   He is the Heavenly Father who is perfect in all His ways.  He is Just, He is Holy, He is full of Grace and Mercy for He is Love. 
 
Luke 10:21-22; Matthew 23:9; John 3:16, 6:27; Romans 1:7; 1 Timothy 1:1-2, 2:5-6; 1 Peter 1:3; Revelation 1:6
 
 
GOD THE SON – JESUS
 
We believe that Jesus is the “Only Begotten Son of the Heavenly Father.”  Jesus was born of a virgin birth, lived a sinless life, died on a cross in the place of our sin.  Jesus sacrifice His life, defeated Death & Hell and was raised from death to life as He ascended on high as the King of Glory who is with the Lord Most High.   
 

We believe Jesus is the “ONLY WAY” AND HE IS THE “ONLY MEDIATOR” who can reconcile humanity back to God. It is through the confessing, continual believing, accepting and repenting of one’s life by being converted through the principles of the Holy Bible. This is the process called “Salvation,” which can only come through a continual active personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Luke 10:21-22; Matthew 23:9; 1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23; 5:9; John 1:29;1 John 1:7;
 
 
 
GOD – THE HOLY SPIRIT
 
We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity / Godhead.   The Holy Spirit, leads, and guides all who believes in Jesus into All Truth.  He convicts the heart of man of his/her sin and shows him/her the way of how to live righteously through the Word of God.   The Holy Spirit is our Helper, our Teacher and a Comforter for those who love the Lord Jesus.
 
John 14:16-17, 26; 15:26-27; John 16:9-14; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; Galatians 5:22-26
 
 
 
HEAVEN
 
We believe the Bible’s account that a Christian believer who keEPS their Salvation through the profession of their faith in God; continuously lives a righteous & holy life who loves Jesus more than their own life shall receive Eternal Life in Heaven.  
 
Matthew 5:3,  6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; 1 Peter 1:4; ; Revelation 19:20
 
 
 
THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT OF THE CREATION OF THE WORLD 
 
We believe God Almighty created the Universe and all creatures in it.   We believe the Biblical account of Genesis which shows where and how all creation derived through the spoken word of God.
 
 
THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT OF THE CREATION OF THE MANKIND
 
We believe all of mankind was created in the image and likeness of God.  We believe that all mankind derived from Adam (a Male/Man) and Eve (a Female/Woman).   Genesis 1:26-30, 2:7, 18-22; 3:1-24; Psalm 8:3-6, 51:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; Ephesians 2
 
 
SIN AND THE FALL OF MANKIND
 
We believe the biblical account of sin entering through one person – Adam who caused the entire human race to perish.  That SIN OF DISOBEDIENCE birth many other sins which eternally separated ALL MANKIND FROM GOD AND HIS PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES.  As a result, man by default forfeited any right to have a relationship with God and would now experience death forever.
 
Genesis 3; Psalm 32:1-5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Romans 3:10, 3:23, 5:12; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22
 
 
 
HELL 
 
We believe God’s warning of Hell and its “everlasting fire,” which is absent of relief and is filled with  “torment,” and “wrath.”   God created this place of punishment for Satan, all fallen angels and anyone who rejects JESUS…  who is God’s chosen way to reconcile man back to Him.  Which CAN ONLY BE DONE THROUGH accepting His Son Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and living a life in Christ.  The Bible describes Hell as a terrible place where non of God’s attributes exists…. and who are there are hopelessly and Eternally separated from God.
 
Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8
 
 
 
FORGIVENESS – THE RECONCILIATION OF MANKIND BACK TO GOD
 
We believe the biblical account of John 3:16, that God so loved the world that He gave his only begotton Son, that whosoever believeth (believes continually) on Him shall not die (eternally forever) but have eternal life with God again.   We believe that through one man Adam… the entire human race was condemned.  But, also through one man JESUS BEING RANSOMED FOR OUR LIVES BY DYING ON THE CROSS…. HIS ACTIONS GAVE ALL MANKIND A NEW OPPORTUNITY TO BE RECONCILED BACK TO GOD THE FATHER.  in order to receive forgiveness from God and new birth, we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
 
Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; ; Hebrews 9:22
 
 
 
SALVATION THROUGH JESUS …. IS THE ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD…. 
 

We believe JESUS IS THE “ONLY WAY” AND HE IS THE “ONLY MEDIATOR” who can reconcile humanity back to God.  This process of reconciliation…..IS CALLED SALVATION!   SALVATION begins when you confess with your mouth that you’ve sinned against God and REJECTED HIS SON, HIS WAYS AND HIS WORD.  You no longer want to live a life of sin and you believe in your heart that Jesus paid the price for your life…with His life.  You believe that Jesus died on the cross and was risen from the dead; you now want Jesus to come into your heart, change your life and become your personal Lord and Savior.  

By doing this action you are “turning away” (repenting) from your old lifestyle and accepting God’s ways (being converted and transformed) through obeying the principles of the Holy Scriptures.  This process called “Salvation,” is FREE TO RECEIVE….it is a precious gift from God the Father, and it cannot be earned through works or deeds, neither can it be genetically transferred or naturally inherited.
 
Luke 10:21-22; Matthew 23:9;  1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23; 5:9; John 1:29;Acts 16:31;  Romans 10:9-10, 13; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5;;  Hebrews 9:22
 
 
 
HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR SALVATION
 
Again, Salvation IS FREE… BUT YOU MUST USE YOUR FAITH AND REMAIN IN RIGHT STANDING IN GOD TO KEEP IT….   We believe maintaining your Salvation begins with you being Saved by grace, as you are now “Born Again” into a new life in Christ Jesus.  You are walking away from committing sin to committing to following God’s Way is the beginning of your soul being converted as you continue daily building an active personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Then and only then, can you be transformed by the renewing of your mind through the Word of God.  
 
Luke 10:21-22; Matthew 23:9;  1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23; 5:9; John 1:29
 
 
 
HOLY COMMUNION
 
We believe in the celebration and observing of “Holy Communion” or the “Lord’s Supper.”  We believe it is beneficial and help Christians to always keep in remembrance everything that Jesus Christ has done for them through Jesus’ life, His  death and His resurrection.
 
 
 
HEALING
 
We believe that God has provided Divine Healing and Sound Health to every Christian Believer and it was purchased by Jesus’ atoning sacrifice.   This healing can only be obtained through grace by faith whether through a supernatural miracle, Laying on of Hands or progressive healing. Health can only be maintained through your obedience to God, continual belief in standing on the healing scriptures, and being good steward’s over our bodies.
Psalm 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16; 1 Corinthians 12:9, 28; Romans 11:29
 
 
 
SANCTIFICATION
 
We believe in Sanctification which is where Salvation makes us righteous before God.   Sanctification causes us to be set apart in effort for our spiritual life in Christ can be developed and exhibit Christ’s character in and through us.  This is an ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word, His will and through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.   Hebrews 12:14, tells us that “without holiness no one will see God.”
 
1 Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3; Romans 8:29, 12:1-2; Hebrews 2:11
 
 
 

WATER BAPTISM

We believe Water Baptism is by the full “immersion” of body  in water.  The action of baptism demonstrates our faith,  obedience  and it openly depicts that we are united with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.  

We Believe that Salvation, is a prerequisite (pre-requirement) before Water Baptism should be implemented. The Water Baptism should be administered ONLY AFTER Salvation has been clearly taught and openly declared through the profession of faith in Jesus Christ; and ONLY IF THE CANDIDATE IS AT AN ACCOUNTABLE AGE OF UNDERSTANDING THE PRINCIPLES, DYNAMICS AND REASONS OF WHY THE WATER BAPTISM IS BEING DONE.  In specific, does the candidate fully understand and comprehend the act of Water Baptism that is being done?  DOES THE CANDIDATE REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT Water Baptism distinctly represents THE DEATH OF THE LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS; THE BURIAL OF OUR LORD, WHERE HE WENT TO HELL AND DEFEATED SIN AND DEATH; AND THAT THE RESURRECTION FROM THE GRAVE IS WHERE JESUS IS HIGHLY EXALTED ON HIGH IN THE HEAVENS, ON EARTH, BENEATH THE EARTH AND TO THE WORLD TO COME!

 
Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48, Colossians 2:12
 
 
 
THE INDWELLING OR / BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
 
We believe in the Indwelling or Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It Is a gift from God given to His Children.  The biblical account of this gift takes place on the day of Pentecost and it is found in the Acts of the Apostle.  Scripture says that God gave gifts to both men and women through the Holy Spirit.   These benefits are not only, for the building up of one’s holy faith.  But, it also for the growth of God’s Kingdom here on earth.  
 
We believe the Holy Spirit is a Comforter, the Anointing and our Guide.  We believe that consistency and fervency in the prayers of a Christian believer, especially in your spiritual language is the foundation for staying in a mind of worship, building up your inner man and remaining in direct communion with God the Father.  We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit enables the Christian believer to fully utilize public and private spiritual gifts for the advancement of the Church and for personal spiritual growth, development and maturity.
 
Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39; 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47; 11:15-17, 19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 1
 
 
 
BIBLICAL MARRIAGE 
 

We Believe emphatically (without question) in the Biblical guidelines of Holy Matrimony or the Biblical Institution of Marriage which is established by God as being defined as an EXCLUSIVE COVENANTAL UNION BETWEEN ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN in which such union is a lifetime commitment. A civil government’s sanction of a union will be recognized as a legitimate marriage by the church only to the extent that it is consistent with the definition of marriage founded in sanctity of the Holy Bible.

 

RESURRECTION & RAPTURE
 
We believe in the resurrection of the saints and rapturing of the Church. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 says, “…the dead in Christ will rise first.  From that moment, we who are here on this earth and still alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air….to live with our Lord forever.” 
 
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
 
 
THE REIGN OF CHRIST
 
We believe immediately following the tribulation, our Lord Jesus will physically and visibly return to Earth for all to see as He reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Revelation 20:6 tells us Jesus’ followers will reign with Him for a thousand years as kings and priests. 
 
Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7
