Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible, containing 66 books, is the only perfect and authoritative Word of God.

We believe it is strictly forbidden to add or subtract from the message of the Bible via dreams, visions, or any other form of revelation. Any message from God will be consistent with and will not override anything in Scripture. Anything else is from the evil one. (Rev. 22:19)

We believe there is only one God that exists in 3 distinct persons (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) and these 3 are one. (Matt. 28:19)

We believe Jesus is the only eternal Son of God. (Matt. 16:16)

We believe that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God therefore all justly deserves to be punished with eternal death from the presence of the Lord (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23)

We believe Jesus is the only name under heaven by which we must be saved from God's wrath against sin. (Acts 4:12)

We believe we are saved by grace through faith in Christ alone and that our works contribute nothing to our salvation. (Eph 2:8)

We believe Jesus Christ is both God and man and that he is the only mediator between God and man. (1 Timothy 2:5)

We believe Jesus Christ was crucified, died, and rose again on the third day. (Romans 10:9)

We believe those who trust in Jesus will rise again on the last day when He returns. (John 6:39)

We believe those who don't trust in Jesus will perish forever under the wrath of God and will be eternally cut off from the goodness of God. (John 3:18)

We believe Jesus desires unity for His church. Unity in our love. Unity in the Holy Spirit. Unity in the Word of God. Unity in our core gospel beliefs. Unity in our faith. Unity in our mission. Unity in our prayers. (John 17:10)

We believe Jesus desires diversity for His church. Diversity in culture. Diversity in language. Diversity in gifts. Diversity in ethnicity. (1 Corinthians 12, Rev. 5:9)

We believe every believer is called to a life of perpetual repentance from sin and pursuit of holiness. (Matt. 4:17, 1 Peter 1:16)

We believe Christ's kingdom is not of this world and that this world is destined for destruction but those who trust in Christ look forward to a new Heaven and Earth wherein dwells righteousness. (John 18:36)

We believe every believer is called to be a witness for Christ and engage in the Great Commission given by Christ to make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19-20,Acts 1:8) (John 18:36)

We desire to be filled with the Holy Spirit in order to help us love, worship, and obey Jesus as revealed in the Bible. (Eph. 5:18)

We love our neighbors with a desire that they will be filled with the Holy Spirit in order to help them love, worship, and obey Jesus as revealed in the Bible. (Matt. 22:36)

We are commanded to persistently pray for all people so that they may be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Tim. 2:1)


Current biblical/cultural issues

Regarding Gender: We believe God made man in His image both male and female. We believe our biological sex is what God intends us to be and it is a sin for us to change it. We believe that the LGBTQ+ agenda is reprehensible to God. It is a Satanic perversion of God's creative and redemptive plan for mankind.

Regarding Marriage: We believe marriage is between one man and one woman. God's design for marriage is that they should become one flesh. What God has joined together no person should separate.

Regarding Sexuality: We believe sexual relations outside of marriage is a sin. We believe homosexuality is a sin. We believe engaging in pornography is a sin.

Regarding the Gospel: The Gospel of Jesus Christ is very exclusive. It instructs us that man, in his natural state, is in rebellion towards God. It intructs us that all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God. It instructs us that only those who believe in Jesus, as God's Son and Savior, will be saved from God's wrath against unrighteousness, forgiven of our sins and be adopted into His family as children. This is the Gospel. We do not believe it is right to add, subtract, mingle or confuse the gospel message with political, social, economic, racial or environmental agendas no matter how good the agenda may be.

Regarding Prosperity/Healing: We believe we are called to suffer and will be hated by all people for Christ's name sake, therefore, we reject any notion that God has promised His people a life free of sickness and poverty. God's people are NOT guaranteed to have an earthly prosperous life. We believe that God is able to and still heals in miraculous ways today. We also believe that God is able and still prospers His children in material ways. However, we reject the teaching that God has promised that He would do that all the time.

Regarding Abortion: We believe destroying the life of a baby in the womb is murder and the Pro-Choice/Abortion agenda is an attack on the most helpless and innocent of our society and is reprehensible to God.

Regarding Materialism: We are called to seek first the Kingdom of God and not put our trust or find our identity in material things. We are called to turn from a life of covetousness and greed to generosity. (Luke 12:15)

Regarding Church Unity: We believe Jesus desires His church to be one even as He and the Father are one. We believe His church is comprised of all the true believers throughout all time. However, we believe the institutions and movements listed below (not an exhaustive list) have so badly corrupted the Gospel of Christ that they are NOT legitimate expressions of His church. There may be true believers in these institutions and we welcome such believers to join us in praying for the world. However, we strongly recommend them leaving and joining a fellowship of believers which holds to sound doctrine and a faithful adherence to the Gospel of Christ.
