Our Vision

Our vision is to change our city, nation and world for Jesus Christ.  We believe that God endorses vision with provision.

We strive to answer the call given in Nehemiah 2:20, “The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build.”

Our Foundation

We believe that the born-again believer should live by hearing, meditating, confessing and acting on the Word of God.  This is the process of faith that brings victory into the lives of God’s people. (Isaiah 34:16, John 15:7, Mark 16:20)

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. Jesus is 100% God and 100% man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and died on the cross for all mankind. He redeems us from the debt of our sins through His shed blood. He rose from the dead according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. (John 1:1,14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5). (John 3:16; Hebrews 1:1-8; 10:7-13)

The Holy Bible

We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God inspired by God. We believe that Jesus is the Manifested Word of God. We believe that faith is acting out on the Word of God. (John 1:1,14; Hebrews 10:7; 1 John 5:7) The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26)

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit manifests Himself through a variety of spiritual gifts to build & equip the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and to confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and they may occur in various combinations. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of biblical parameters. (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11; 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:16; 2 Timothy 1:5-6; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10-11)

The Virgin Birth

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary’s womb; therefore, He is the Son of God. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18, 23-25; Luke 1:27-35)

The Second Coming

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. (Matthew 24:30-31; 26:62-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-18; II Thessalonians 1:6-10; Revelation 1:7)

The Rapture

We believe in the rapture, that the dead in Christ will rise first and that those that are alive and remain shall be caught up to meet Jesus in the air. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit. We believe one is born-again by the regeneration of the Holy Spirit. (John 3:3-8; Ephesians 1:13; Romans 8:11; John 7:37-39; Titus 3:5)

The Baptism of the Spirit

Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth. (Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5; 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17; 10:38, 44-47; 11:15-17; 19:1-6)

Water Baptism

We believe in water baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – we believe the name that represents the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the Name of Jesus. Baptism represents the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. We believe that water baptism is an ordinance to be followed upon belief and is not necessary for salvation. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:38; 8:12, 35-37; 10:47-48, Romans 6:4; 1 Corinthians 1:17)

Tithes and Offerings

We believe in tithing the tithe and bringing offerings into the church. With believe tithing is a covenant practice initiated by Abraham 430 years before the law. We also believe in caring for the poor, sick, homeless, etc. (Genesis 14:18-20; Hebrews 7:1-4; Psalms 110:4; Galatians 3:29)

Trinity

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11; John 14:9-11; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

Heaven and Hell

We believe in a literal heaven and a literal hell. We believe that after death eternal life begins either in heaven or in hell; where one spends eternity is based on their decision to accept or reject Jesus and His Word. We believe Jesus died for all mankind, and that the gift of salvation is offered to all. Salvation is by faith through grace and not by works. (Romans 10:9; John 5:24; Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16; Titus 3:5, 1 Timothy 2:4-6.)

Sin & The Human Condition

Humanity was created good and upright, but fell through voluntary transgression. In Adam, all humanity sinned and is alienated from God. Humanity’s only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Rom. 5:12-21)

The Anointing

We believe in the burden-removing yoke destroying power of God. We believe that Jesus is the Anointed One and that He has anointed His church with wisdom and power to carry out His plan. (Isaiah 10:27, Luke 4:18, 1 John 2:27)

God’s Will for Wholeness

It is the Father’s will for all believers to become prosperous, healthy and successful in all areas of life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will and blessing while on earth. However, this should never prevent all believers from seeking the full endowment of God’s Blessings offered through Jesus Christ. Biblical wholeness affects at least four areas of one’s life:

 

Spiritual (John 3:3-11; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-13)

Mental or Emotional (2 Timothy 1:7; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3)

Physical (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24)

Financial (Joshua 1:8; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; 2 Corinthians 9:6-10; Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Psalm 34:10, 84:11; Philippians 4:19; 3 John 2)

Faith

We believe that the just shall live by faith and that faith is the victory over the world. We believe that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. (Romans 1:17, 1 John 5:4, Romans 10:17)

Foundation

We believe that Jesus is the manifested Word of God. (John 1:1, 14, 1 John 5:7, Matthew 24:35) We believe that the born-again believer should live by hearing, meditating, confessing and acting on the Word of God. This is the process of faith that brings victory into the lives of God’s people. (Isaiah 34:16, John 15:7, Mark 16:20)
