Our services flow according to the Holy Spirit. We do not follow a program or a schedule, but we do operate and practice all of the following beliefs and doctrines according to what is outlined in scripture:
The Scriptures Inspired
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to men, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1Pet. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).
The One True God
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM,” and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19).
Man’s Fall and Redemption
Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in our image and after our likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption in in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31; Gen 3:17; Rom. 5:12-21).
The Salvation of Man
The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Rom. 10:13-15; Luke 24:47).
Evidences of Salvation
The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of holiness (1 Thess. 4:7, 2Tim 1:9).
Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed (as commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they have also been released to walk with Him in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4).
Baptism with the Holy Spirit and Fire
The ordinance of baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire with the evidence of speaking in tongues should be received (as commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they accept all that the Holy Spirit has to offer and receive power from on high to attain victory in life on this Earth. (Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4; Mark 16:17;
1 Cor. 14:2-4).
Gifts of the Holy Spirit
The 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit are allowed to flow regularly and are not hindered or quenched by any human. We followed God's order and allow the Holy Spirit to speak how He sees fit. (1 Thess. 5:19; Matt. 12:31;
1 Cor. 12:1-11).
Laying on of Hands
The laying on of hands is a regular part of our services and serves several purposes including imparting spiritual gifts, creating a point of agreement in prayer, and transferring of blessing. (Acts 6:6; Acts 13:3; 1 Tim. 4:14).
The Lord’s Supper (Communion)
The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing in a memorial to His suffering and death, and a prophecy of His second coming, and is enjoined to all believers “until He comes” (John 6:48, 51, 53-57; Luke 22:19, 20; 2Pet. 1:4, 1Cor. 11:25).
By the power of the Holy Spirit we strive to obey the command , “Be ye holy, for I am holy.” Sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word (Heb. 12:14; 1 Pet. 1:15, 16; 1Thess. 5:23, 24; 1 John 2:6).
The church is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer is an integral part of the church, and their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. (1 Thess. 2:4).
Divinely called and Scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a two-fold purpose: (1) The evangelization of the world, and (2) The edification of Body of Christ (Mark 16:15, 20; Eph. 4:11-13).
God created marriage. It is a covenant made between a man and a woman that makes them one (Gen 2:22-24; Matt 19:5-6).
Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement of Christ and is the privilege of all believers (Is. 53:4, 5; Matt. 8:16, 17; Mark 16:18; John 5:14).
The Blessed Hope
The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those who are alive and remain unto the Lord, is imminent and is the blessed hope of the church (1 Thess. 4:16; Rom. 6:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor. 15:51, 52).
The Millennial Reign of Jesus
The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from Heaven, the salvation of the national Israel, and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth are Scriptural promises and our hope (2 Thess. 1:7; Rev. 19:11-16; Rom. 11:25;
The Lake of Fire
The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15).
The New Heavens and New Earth
We, as promised in the Scriptures, look for a new heavens and a new earth wherein righteousness dwells
(2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21:1).
