What we Believe

core beliefs

The following doctrines unite us with the historical, biblical, worldwide church established by Jesus Christ:

  • We believe in one God eternally existing as three persons equal in power and glory. 
  • We believe in the full deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin, lived without sin, was crucified, died for our sins, was buried, rose from the dead, ascended to heaven, and is coming again to judge the living and the dead. 
  • We believe God offers eternal life by grace through faith to all who will repent and believe on Jesus. 
  • We believe the Holy Spirit equips us for service, sanctifies us from sin, and imparts spiritual gifts for the edification of the church and the work of the ministry.
  • We believe the Bible is divinely inspired by God, reliable, authoritative, and useful for spiritual growth.   

what makes us unique

The following distinctives reflect the charismatic, Spirit-filled heritage that we wholeheartedly celebrate:

  • The baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues
  • The supernatural gifts of the Spirit active in the church today, such as prophecy, healing, and interpretation of tongues
  • The calling of both women and men to preach and lead in ministry
  • The supremacy of Christ's Kingdom over nationalism and politics
  • The New Testament model for marriage as a covenantal, mutually submitted relationship between one man and one woman
