In one accord, we believe…
We believe in the one and only true God. We believe in the trinity of the Godhead; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We believe that these three are one.
We believe the Holy Scriptures of both the Old and New Testament, which together form the Holy Bible.. It is the God’s infallible written Word of God, unchangeable, immutable, and as powerful today, as the day it was wholly inspired by the Holy Spirit. His Word is the supreme and final authority in all matters.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was made manifest in the flesh, born of the Virgin Mary, that He lived, died on the cross, rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven as God’s plan for the redemption of all mankind by faith through Jesus Christ. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father, ever living to make intercession for us, His church. (Heb. 7:25)
We believe that all mankind have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, thereby deserving death, since men are born of the seed of the sinful seed Adam. All mankind, my be justified by grace, through faith, in Jesus Christ, who died to be a ransom for all.
We believe in the transformation of sinners when they believe in Jesus Christ. As one comes to Jesus Christ and personally receives Him to be their Lord and Savior, he becomes a new creation, the old has passed away and new life begins. Therefore we do not hold one’s past against them, but see them forgiven by Jesus Christ who justifies all men.
We believe in the baptism of all believers by immersion as a physical sign of the inward faith in Jesus Christ. Baptism symbolizes our death and resurrection with Him.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead and that the dead in Christ will rise never to die again, and those who are still living will be caught up with them to meet the Lord in the air, and to live with Christ throughout eternity.
We believe in holy matrimony, that is marriage between one man and one woman, as having been sanctioned in the Christian life according to the Word of God. We believe that in marriage, a man leaves his father and mother and joins his wife and the two become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)
We believe in tithing and giving offerings in the Kingdom of God so that there may be enough supply for the work of God and His servants. We apply the power of prayer, fasting and giving within our lives, as has been taught us by our Lord Jesus Christ through His Word. (Matthew 6:3-18)
We believe in the Church as the body of Christ, which He laid down His life to purchase. Jesus Christ is the head of His Church and that He is coming back to take this same Church to be with Him for eternity, a Church without spot or wrinkle. His church is made up of all races, classes, nations, tribes, languages, and generations. Together, we represent God’s love and equal value for all mankind. His church are all those that have become children of God, through their faith and confession of Jesus as their Savior and Lord.
We believe in the in-filling of the Holy Spirit in all believers of the Lord Jesus Christ. The empowerment of the Holy Spirit upon believers is for the manifestation of His works through signs, wonders, and miracles, as was demonstrated by Jesus and the New Testament Church, throughout the whole Word of God, and by His church since then.
We believe in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and being witnesses of His Word and works to the entire world, in fulfillment of the Great Commission. This was commanded to us, by the Lord Jesus Christ, and is His commission for the whole body of Christ world-wide.
We believe that the devil is the prince of demons and darkness, and as the adversary of God, is therefore an enemy of the children of God. When Jesus died on the cross, He guaranteed the ultimate triumph of God and His church, over all darkness. He has given believers power and authority for prayer, doing His Word and will, fulfilling His commission, and setting people free from the works of the enemy, in His Name. (Mark 16:16-17, Ephesians 2:2, Colossians 2:13-15, 1Peter 5:8, and Revelation 20:10)
We believe and eagerly await for the second return of this same Jesus Christ, to take the Church to Himself, a Church without spot or wrinkle. This is our driving force in preparing ourselves and the rest of the world, as we ‘occupy’ until His return.
