Statement of Faith

The Word of God:
We are convinced that the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.
Hebrews 4:2, 1Timothy 2:4, 2 Timothy 3:16

The Trinity: 
We are convinced that there is one God in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
John 14:16, Mark 1:10-11, Matthew 28:19 

One way: 
We are convinced that Jesus Christ gave His life on the cross to redeem mankind from sin and give eternal life; no one comes to the Father except through His Son, Jesus Christ. Salvation is a free gift for all who confess to the Lord Jesus with their mouth and believe in the resurrection of Christ.
James 5:16, John 3:16, Romans 10:9, John 14:6, Acts 4:12 

Christ our Healer: 
We are convinced that Christ can bring healing and hope to every situation in life by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 53:5, Psalm 147:3, Exodus 15:26

The Same: 
We are convinced that Jesus Christ is Lord and that He is the same yesterday, today and forever. What He did 2,000 years ago, He is still doing today through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit operating through those who believe in Him.
Hebrews 13:8, John 14:2 

The Normal Christian Life:
We are convinced that full devotion and extravagant affection for Jesus Christ and His cause should be the norm for every believer.
John 12:1-11, Luke 9:23-24, Matthew 16:24-25, Luke 12:31 

The Disciplines:
We are convinced that the believer will grow towards God when the discipline of prayer is coupled with worship and the reading, memorizing and meditation on the Word of God.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Hebrews 4:12, Psalm 119:11, Psalm 1:1-3

Prayer: 
We are convinced that prayer is a two-way communication between God and the believer, and the fervent heartfelt prayer of a righteous man or woman avails much.
Acts 22:14, James 5:16

Labels & Divisions: 
We are convinced that God does not dwell with a particular denomination or style. The body of Christ has many different looks, but everyone who confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is a part of the same body.
John 17:23, Romans 15:5-6, Romans 12:4-5, 1 Corinthians 12:13

This Generation: 
We are convinced that God has a passion for all peoples. He has a plan and a calling for them, and they are set apart for righteousness. God is rising up an army of on-fire, God-loving people who are going to raise a standard of Godliness up before their peers and the world.
Psalm 7:17-18, Acts 2:17-18, Jeremiah 29:11
