Core Doctrines

The doctrine of Salvation forms the core of our Christian faith by proclaiming God’s victory over sin in our lives. This truth results in deliverances, healings and restored lives. Whether a new member or a mature Christian, every believer should have a clear understanding of salvation and the difference this truth makes in our lives and churches.
Wherever Jesus went, He ministered with compassion and healed the sick. Christ’s example showed an interconnection with salvation as many believed following their healing.

Our Lord continues to heal today and it is vital that the church preach, teach, and practice this biblical truth. Scriptures command believers to pray in faith and trust God for the outcome.

The doctrine of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is our distinctive. This truth explains the passion and power of our witness. Jesus promised His followers they would receive power from on high so that they would be His witnesses. We believe this truth is just as relevant today as our Fellowship continues to take the gospel message around the globe.
With the world experiencing natural disasters, economic downturns and increasing uncertainties on many fronts, the doctrine of Christ’s Second Coming is more relevant than ever. Believers must rest in the certainty of the imminent return of our Lord and share this hope with others.

 

What We Believe

 

The Bible is inspired by God and is perfect with no errors. It is God‘s design and plan for mankind and our guide for faith and living.
2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Hebrews 4:12
There is only One True God–revealed in three persons…Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10-11
Jesus is God. He left heaven and became a man to be our example and empathize with us. He has always been and will always be.
Matthew 28:19, Mark 1:10-11
Mankind is broken and attracted to sin. Through sin mankind brought evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
Genesis 3:1-7, Romans 5:12-19
Jesus suffered and died on the cross so we could have a relationship with God. This relationship is initiated by God through His grace and received by man- kind through faith.
Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:13-15
Water baptism and communion should be offered on a regular basis.
Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, 1 Corinthians 11:26

1) Water Baptism by immersion after becoming a Christian. We have a water baptism service on various Sunday mornings throughout the year.
2) Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation. We serve communion in morning services on the 1st Sunday each month.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is available to all believers, after salvation to help them tell others about Jesus and live a godly life.
Acts 1:8, Luke 24:49
The first physical sign that someone has been Baptized in the Holy Spirit is that they will speak in an unlearned language.

Christians should grow in their relationship with Christ. Being holy is a lifelong process of overcoming sin and temptation and becoming like Jesus.

The church has four purposes on this earth…

1) To reach out to sinners with the good news of what Jesus has done for them.

3) To bless God with our lives.
4) To be a people who demonstrate God’s love and compassion for all the world.
