What We Believe
Salvation is a gift from God to humankind. Men and Women can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by turning from a life of sin and trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can people be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.
Divine Healing of sickness and disease is provided for all believers today through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. The Bible says that Jesus died to save people from their sin and to provide physical healing for those who are sick. We believe that the church should regularly pray for the sick and ask God to heal them.
(Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:14-16)
The Holy Spirit
The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times. The initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues, as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.
(Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12; Acts 8:12-17; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 11:14-16; Acts 15:7-9; Acts 2:4)
The Second Coming
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised and will rule and reign on this earth. History will conclude as the wicked are judged and the righteous enter a new heaven and a new earth.
(1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51,52; Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27; Matthew 24:30; Revelation 1:7; Revelation 19:11-14; Revelation 20:1-6; Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:11-15; Revelation 21:8; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21; Revelation 22)
