What We Believe
Statement of Beliefs
We believe in the ministry, fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit being active in the church today. We believe that one result of an intentional relationship with Jesus is growing in the gifts of the Spirit. We become what we behold according to John 14:12 - "I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father". The love of God is our guide in living with those gifts as outlined in 1 Corinthians 13. We hold to the basic beliefs outlined in the Apostles Creed.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the holy Spirit, the church of Jesus Christ, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
