The Word of God is the ultimate and eternal source of Divine truth. We affirm that the Bible is divinely inspired, infallible, and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. The Word of God is a timeless and unchanging source of wisdom and revelation. It is our guide for living a life that is pleasing to God and for understanding His will for our lives.

(Romans 16:25-26; Proverbs 30:5; 2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:89).

God is triune in nature—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Father is the eternal source, the Son is the Savior and Redeemer, and the Holy Spirit is the Comforter and Guide. Each member of the Trinity serves different functions, but all possess equal power and authority. 

(Matthew 28:19; Luke 1:35; I John 5:7; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11; Matthew 3:16-17). 

God, the Father is the creator of the universe, infinite in wisdom, power, and love. He is the source of all life and the sustainer of all existence. The Father is transcendent, beyond all human comprehension, and yet immanent, intimately involved in our lives. In Him we live and move and exist. God the Father is good, faithful, and true. His character and nature are unchanging.

(Exodus 3:14; Romans 3:3-4; Leviticus 11:44-45, 19:2; John 3:16, 4:24, 5:26, 14:1; Acts 17:28; Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8; Psalm 84:11, 103:1-5, 145:7).

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. Although fully God, He willingly became fully man. He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, and demonstrated God’s love and grace through His teachings, miracles, and sacrificial death on the cross. Through His resurrection from the dead, He conquered sin and death. He ascended to heaven, where He reigns as Lord and intercedes on behalf of believers. He will return again with all authority and power.

We commit our lives to following Jesus’ example, spreading His message of salvation, and living in obedience to His teachings, empowered by the Holy Spirit.”

We trust in Jesus as the only way to salvation and eternal life, acknowledging Him as the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He offers forgiveness, reconciliation with God, and the promise of a personal relationship with Him through faith.

(John 1:1, 14, 20:28; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17, 8:29, 14:33, 16:16, 28:5-6; I Timothy 2:5, 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-11; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Galatians 4:4-5; Romans 1:3-4, 3:23-26, 10:4; Colossians 1:15, 2:9).

The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, the righteousness of God, and the coming judgment, drawing people to faith in Jesus Christ. He regenerates, sanctifies, and empowers believers for Godly living and service.

The Holy Spirit’s role is to illuminate the Scriptures, guide us into truth, and provide spiritual gifts for the edification of the Church. He dwells within every believer, sealing them for the day of redemption and serving as our Counselor, Comforter, and Helper.

We rely on the Holy Spirit’s guidance in our daily lives, seeking to walk in step with Him, and we invite Him to produce the fruit of the Spirit in us. We believe in the continued work of the Holy Spirit in the Church today, empowering us to fulfill the Great Commission and building unity among believers.

(I Corinthians 3:16, 12:1-11, 26-27; Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:5, 8, 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; Genesis 1:2; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Psalms 51:11, 139:7).


Repentance, a vital aspect of the Christian faith, is the heartfelt recognition and the turning away of our sins.  Through repentance, we can receive forgiveness and salvation. It leads to the transformation of our hearts and minds.

Genesis 1:26-31; Acts 2:21, 3:19; I John 1:9; Romans 5:12-21).

Salvation is a gift of God through His grace. We cannot earn salvation through our “good” works. Jesus died so that we can be free from sin and death. Through our confession of faith in Jesus and His death and resurrection, we can be saved. 

(Romans 1:16-18, 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-10; Acts 2:21, 4:12, 16:31; Titus 3:5; John 3:16-17; Hebrews 9:22).

Water baptism is a public declaration of one’s faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior. It symbolizes their identification with His death, burial, and resurrection.

Water Baptism is an act of obedience to Christ’s command to baptize disciples in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

(Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38, 8:12, 10:47-48).

The Church is the Body of Christ, consisting of all who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The Church was established by Christ Himself. The Church exists to worship and glorify God, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to make disciples of all nations. It is the community of believers called to love one another, to serve the world in Christ’s name, and to be a light in the darkness.

(Hebrews 12:23; Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; John 17:11, 20-23).

As on the day of Pentecost, believers are empowered and filled with the Holy Spirit. This was a promise given by Jesus to all believers. The baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers for a deeper relationship with God and boldness for the advancement of His kingdom. 

(Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39. 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6; Joel 2:28-29).

The Gifts of the Spirit as described in the New Testament, are given by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of building up the Body of Christ and advancing God’s kingdom on earth. We affirm that these gifts are diverse and include but are not limited to prophecy, tongues, interpretation of tongues, wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, discernment, and various forms of service and leadership. These gifts are still available and operational in the Church today, and we encourage believers based on the Word of God to earnestly desire and use them for the common good and the expansion of God’s kingdom.

(I Peter 4:10; I Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6-7; I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:16)

We believe in the five-fold ministry, where Christ, upon His ascension, gave apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers to the Church for the equipping of the saints, the work of ministry, and the edification of the Body of Christ.


The five-fold ministry positions of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers were given by Jesus to His Church at the time of His ascension. The primary purpose of the five-fold ministry positions is for the equipping of the saints, the work of ministry, and the edification of the Body of Christ. 

(Ephesians 4:8-13; I Corinthians 12:4-30, 14:29-31; Galatians 3:26-29; Philippians 4:3; Romans 16:1-7). 

We believe that in Communion, the bread and wine symbolize the body and blood of Christ, given for the forgiveness of sins and the new covenant between God and man. Communion is taken by believers to remember Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. It is a time for self-examination, repentance, and reconciliation with God and one another. 

(Matthew 26:26-28; I Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-26; Acts 8:12, 36-38, 10:47-48; Mark 16:16). 

We understand that as believers, we must commit ourselves to living in the freedom found in Christ, embracing His truth, grace, and transformative power. We believe it starts with our own desire to walk in the freedom of Christ, leading to living out our faith in love, and sharing the message of salvation with others so they too can experience freedom.

(2 Corinthians 3:17; John 8:36; I Corinthians 6:12; Galatians 5:1, 13-14; Ephesians 3:12; Psalms 118:5, 119:45; Isaiah 61:1; Luke 4:18). 

We believe in God’s desire for the health and prosperity of His people, as revealed in His Word.


God is the ultimate source of health and healing. We believe in the power of prayer, faith, and Divine intervention to bring about physical and emotional healing.

We understand that God desires to bless His people with prosperity—not only financially, but emotionally, and spiritually as well. 

We understand that health and prosperity are gifts from God, and we understand the importance of honoring Him in the pursuit of both. 

(John 3:3-11; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-10; 2 Timothy 1:7, 2:11; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3, 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; I Peter 2:24; Joshua 1:8; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; 2 Corinthians 9:6-10; Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Psalm 34:10, 84:11; Philippians 4:19).

Jesus Christ will return to establish His authority on earth where His reign will be fully realized. We recognize the importance of being spiritually prepared for Christ’s return. Believers are called to watch, pray, and live in holiness, anticipating His coming with eager expectation.

(Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7). 

Eternity is a reality for all. Heaven exists as a place of perfect communion with God where there is no pain, sorrow, or sin. The reality of hell is eternal separation from God. We commit ourselves to living with an eternal perspective, seeking to live in a way that aligns with God’s eternal plan and sharing the message of hope and salvation with others, so they too can have the assurance of eternal life with God.

Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34, 41; John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; Hebrews 9:27, 11:6; I John 2:25; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15; 21:8; Mark 9:34-48
