What We Believe
Our beliefs are the FOUNDATION for our passion.
Jesus was born of a virgin birth, lived a sinless life, died on the Cross, rose from the dead, and is alive today. It’s only through a relationship with Jesus, available to all who put their trust in Him, that we are able to be saved and reconciled to God. John 3:1-16; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:1-8
Each of us have a sinful nature yet as we confess our sin to Jesus and commit to follow him by turning away from self-centered living and learning from him how to live, we’ll discover what it’s truly like to be free. Romans 6:1-11; 8:13; Hebrews 12:14
We believe the Holy Spirit is alive and working in the same ways he was in Jesus and his first followers. We believe the Holy Spirit gives gifts including but not limited to tongues for each believer, prophecy, healing and the like, and empowers us for their use. Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; James 5:14-16
We believe God has given each person unique gifts and callings that fit and work together so that we can reach the world. Ephesians 4:11-13
We believe that when He does, that God will finally transform all things, and that every person will face the truth about his/her life. We will either live fulfilled in a relationship with Christ in heaven or suffer the consequences of an existence without him in hell. Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 21-22
