We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s Agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
We believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.
We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshipped.
We believe worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshipping Him.
We believe in all the basic doctrines of historic Christianity.
We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe that God is eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His substitutionary death on the cross, was bodily raised from the dead, ascended back to the right hand of the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.
We believe in the personal, visible, and pre-millennial second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth. He will return with His saints and set up a kingdom of which there will be no end.
After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.
We believe that all people are, by nature, separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.
We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures, and that they are valid for today if they are exercised within the scriptural guidelines. We as believers are to covet the best gifts, seeking to exercise them in love that the whole Body of Christ might be edified. We believe that love is more important than the most spectacular gifts, and without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.
Philosophy of Ministry
Jesus said to Peter, “Feed My sheep.” (John 21:16). Therefore our meetings together focus on the verse by verse teaching of the Bible. This gives us all that we need for life and Godliness (2Peter 1:3,4).Jesus said that His Father desired those who would worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23). Therefore our meetings together emphasize meaningful expressions of worship to God.Jesus said that His children know His voice and are able to follow His leading (John 10:27). Therefore we do not seek to pressure or recruit people to do anything nor do we seek to get in the middle of someone’s life and tell them what to do. Rather we seek to point people to Jesus and have them learn to hear His voice and follow His leading. Jesus said, “I will build my church,” (Matthew 16:18).He also said, “Abide in Me…for apart from Me you can do nothing,” (John 15:4-5). Therefore we do not strategize and program ways to make our church grow. Rather we keep our eyes on Jesus and wait for His leading. “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye,” Psalm 32:8.
