God as Trinity
Salvation and Baptism
It is the unending grace of God, through faith in the person and work of Jesus that provides salvation to all humanity. We must receive the Father’s drawing by repentance, believing that Jesus is the one true Savior and Lord who provides restoration into community with God and complete freedom from the debt of our past, present and future sin.
Water Baptism is the public statement by which people who have become followers of Jesus make their confession known.

The Holy Spirit is God’s manifest presence in our world today. His indwelling in all followers of Jesus enables us to live a life that honors God. We are given the opportunity to partner in supernatural ministry with God through the person and empowering of the Holy Spirit. He convicts, assures and guides us as we walk through life. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is poured out on all believers, empowering us to be a witness of restored community with God through Jesus.

A Supernatural Life, Community and Mission
The victorious redemptive work of Jesus’s death and resurrection provides freedom from the power of Satan, God’s enemy. Sin, sickness and death no longer have a hold on God’s children and it is our opportunity to partner with the Father in releasing Jesus’ victory through the empowering of Holy Spirit into this world. All followers of Jesus are part of His Church. We exist to continue the ministry of Jesus and to advance God’s Kingdom on earth. We speak the good news of God’s Love and undo the plans of the enemy. We are called to go into all nations, baptizing and teaching all who will believe in God through Jesus Christ.

Heaven to Earth
As Jesus taught his disciples to pray on earth as it is in Heaven, we believe The Kingdom and Government of God is always moving forward and increasing here on earth. God’s Government is family. His children anticipate a glorious, visible return of Jesus Christ to receive a pure bride, His Church, of which all believers are a part. Heaven and Hell are real places. Upon Jesus’ return, there will be a resurrection of all who have died. The followers of Jesus will receive eternal life and perfect community with God in eternity. Those who are not followers of Jesus will be condemned to an eternal death.
