Statement of Faith
DOCTRINE OF GOD
There is only one true God. He is YHWH, He exists eternally as three persons — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other. These three are co-equal and are one God. God is the creator of everything, seen and unseen.
DOCTRINE OF CHRIST
Jesus Christ, Yahshua the second Person of the Trinity, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary He was fully God in human flesh. He lived a sinless life, yet took upon himself our sins by dying in our place and on our behalf. He rose bodily, over death. He ascended and is at the right hand of the Father as the believer’s advocate and mediator. He will return to consummate history and to fulfill the eternal plan of God.
DOCTRINE OF HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, convicts the world of sin and gives new life to those who trust in Jesus. He indwells all believers and is available to empower them to lead Christ-like lives. The Spirit gives them spiritual gifts with which to serve fellow believers and reach out to a lost and needy world.
DOCTRINE OF SCRIPTURE
The Bible is God’s unique revelation to mankind, the inspired, infallible Word of God. As such, it is the supreme and final authority and without error in what it teaches and affirms. No other writings are vested with such divine authority.
DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH
All believers are members of the body of Christ, the one true church universal. Spiritual unity is to be expressed among Christians by acceptance and love of one another across ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national, generational, gender, and denominational lines. The local church is a group of believers who gather for worship, prayer, instruction, encouragement, mutual accountability, community with each other, and as a witness to the world.
DOCTRINE OF SALVATION
Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and God gives salvation and eternal life to those who trust in Him. Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. It is a gift that is received by repentance, faith in Christ, His death on the cross, resurrection from the grave and testified through baptism.
DOCTRINE OF SIN
Everyone, regardless of race, gender, social class, or intellectual ability, is created in God’s image and for communion with God. But because of sin, that communion was broken and all of humanity was separated from God, the source of all life. Because of the fall, everyone deserves God’s judgment.
MIRACLE SIGNS & WONDERS
God speaks through His Word and through the Holy Spirit. God's children hear his voice and they are His vessel to perform Miracles, Signs, and Wonders in the earth realm
John 10:27 My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.
