                           What we Believe

The Holy Bible - We believe that the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are God-breathed, for the revelation of God and written down by Holy men as they were moved upon by the Holy Spirit. We believe this to be the infallible, inerrant, trustworthy  word of God, for all humanity and the final authority for all matters about which it speaks. We believe that the Word of God became flesh and blood and dwelt among us, living and breathing, alive.                                                                   
                     2Timothy 3:16,  2 Peter 1:21, 1 Jn 1:14
  

The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit -  We believe in One God - the supreme ruler and creator over all. God the Father, God as Jesus, God as Holy Spirit, manifesting and coexisting himself in three people. Three separate distinctions unified as One, God the Father unseen, Jesus (Emanuel) God with us manifested. We acknowledge God the Holy Spirit as Comforter, the agency of regeneration now on earth. We in believe the Holy Ghost as the distributor of gifts and the graces upon the people through faith in Jesus Christ.           

                                                                              Gen 1,  Eph 3:9, 1 John  5:1-12,  Jn 1:1,  Jn 14:8-11, 
                                                                              Matt 3:11,  Acts 1:4-8 , 1 Cor 12:4-11,


Jesus Christ -  We believe, as the scriptures say, that Mary was a pure virgin who had not known man, and one who conceived by the seed of the Holy Spirit.  We believe that Jesus Christ is the only Son of God and humbled himself by becoming born - a Man-God incarnated that lived a sinless life. He pre-existed with God in the form of God and is the word of God from everlasting to everlasting.  He is fully divine and fully human as He freely gave up his position in heaven. He is the second member of the God Head. Jesus Christ was perfect, crucified, died, was buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father. He is the perfect mediator between God and man.

                                                                      Colossians 1:15-19, 1 Timothy 2:5-6, Philippians 2:5-8,

The Indwelling - We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in believers with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives them utterance. It is the power of the Holy Spirit working in every believer to perform miracles, signs, and wonders that follow the preaching of the words of God, ( His divine message ) for the sole purpose of His divine will for our dispensation.  Through faith and Love, the manifestation of the Holy Spirit is spiritually illumined through 9 different gifts.                               
                                                                     Acts 2:1-4, Acts 1:8,\  Phi 2:13,  Eph 2:10, 1 Cor 12:5-11     


The Atonement - We believe in the substitutionary death on the cross of Jesus Christ and His resurrection from the dead for the justification, forgiveness and salvation for all who believe that He is the Son of God. Jesus Christ and His blood is the atonement for the spirit soul and body and has secured a complete redemption. We believe through the atonement there is divine healing and divine health along with Kingdom prosperity through sowing and reaping.
                                                                    Heb 9:11-28, Heb 10:1-23, 1 Pet  2:24,                                                                       Isaiah 53:4-5, Jn 10:10, Matt 8:17, James 5:14,                   
                                                                    2 Cor 9:6, Lk 6:38
 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
Salvation -  We believe that Jesus Christ is the only perfect plan to redeem lost humanity from their sins and Eternal Hell. We believe in only one way into the Kingdom of God and that it is through having faith and confessing Jesus Christ  as Lord and savior and asking Him to forgive our sins. We believe that we are reborn and regenerated by the seed of God who delivered us out of the control and dominion of Satan's darkness and sin and has transferred us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love.                                                                                                                                                                                    
                   Rom10:8 - 13, 1 Pet 3:24, 1 Pet 1:23, Col 1:13        


Water Baptism – Water Baptism is a rite of washing with water as a sign of religious purification and consecration. We believe that baptism in water is a commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ for believers only. It is not necessary for salvation, but is an outward sign of an inward work that the Spirit has done in the believer. This commandment is a symbol of the believers identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. Water baptism is a physical act that should indelibly mark the mind of the person being baptized with the reality of his union with Jesus Christ. Water baptism is an important step of obedience in the believer’s life, yet only an acknowledgment of the salvation experience already accomplished - Water Baptism itself has no power to cleanse or save from sin.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:36-39, Romans 6:4-5,
                                                                   Colossians 2:12, 1 Pet 3:21



 The resurrection from the dead and Hell - The resurrection refers only to the bodies of all men who die and not to souls and spirits that are immortal. All scriptures on the future resurrection of the dead are without exception and will be resurrected out of the dust.  We believe as the Scriptures clearly say that those that do not believe and confess Jesus as Lord and savior shall not enter into His glorious Kingdom, but will be judged, hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the eternal hell and perdition of all fallen angels, demons, and wicked men. We believe that the lake of fire is literal with out exception. The same words translated eternal, everlasting and for ever and ever used to state the eternity of God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, life, etc. are also used of hell and punishment. If these things and persons are eternal, then hell and punishment are eternal.

New heavens and earth - Gods Word declares to us that Christ shall return for His body the Church. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the blast of the trumpet of God. All of those who have departed this life in Christ will first rise. Then all those who are living will be simultaneously caught up along with the resurrected dead in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. The unsaved shall begin a period of tribulation spoken about in the book of Daniel and Revelation. Again the Lord will return after the period of tribulation with His saints to earth for a period of one thousand years of peace. During this time Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit. Right after one thousand years of peace Satan will be loosed and will go out to deceive the world one last time. Then will come the Great White Throne Judgment for those who never received the Lord in their earthly lifetime. God will then fold up the heavens and earth and it will burn away.  The new earth and heavens will be revealed and the Sons of God will be with the Lord for eternity.
