Core Values

The Supremacy of God’s Word

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16

Disciplined Spiritual Formation

…to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us. Ephesians 3:19-20

Resilient Personal Wholeness

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30

The Preparation & Mobilization of Skilled Workers

Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. Then He *said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest. Matthew 9:36-38

The Proclamation & Practice of God’s Kingdom

This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14

WE BELIEVE

That the Old and New Testament are divinely breathed, infallible, inerrant as originally given and are the complete revelation of God’s plan for the salvation of man.

In Jesus Christ as true God and true Human Being. He was born of a virgin, lived in sinless humanity and died upon the cross, the just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, that all who believe in Him may be justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead and now is at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our High Priest.
 
That salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all people, and those who repent and believe in Him will be born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become children of God.
 
In the present day reality and need for the post-conversion experience of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial scriptural evidence of speaking in tongues, and in the use of supernatural gifts in public and private devotion and worship in the life of the believer, in the healing of the body by Divine Power as practiced in the early church.
 
In one God who is infinitely perfect, existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
 
In the local church as a body of believers who meet together for the worship of God for edification, prayer, fellowship and to participate in the ordinance of believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
 
That the Second Coming of the Lord is imminent and will be personal, visible, and pre-millennial. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital incentive to holy living and faithful service.
