What We Believe

1. The Scriptures are the Word of God


We believe the Scriptures, are the true Word of God. Both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man. It is the infallible (can't fail, and without error),  authoritative rule of faith and conduct -- meaning we believe the Word of God has ultimate power and we line up our lives to follow what it says. 

  • 2 Timothy 3:15-17 

  • 1 Thessalonians 2:13

  • 2 Peter 1:21

  • Genesis 1:26,27 

  • Genesis 2:17 

  • Genesis 3:6 

  • Romans 5:12-19 

2. Salvation through Jesus Christ

Man was created good and upright at creation; for God said, "Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness." However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. 

Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.

  • Luke 24:47 

  • John 3:3 

  • Romans 10:13-15 

  • Ephesians 2:8 

  • Titus 2:11 

  • Titus 3:5-7 


3. Jesus breaks the power of sin.


We believe that after salvation through Jesus, that person is a new creation. (1 Corinthians 5:17) and Therefore, that person is no longer a "sinner", and that the power of sin is truly broken over that person. Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God.

  • Romans 12:1,2 

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:23 

  • Hebrews 13:12


The Scriptures teach a life of "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord."

  • Hebrews 12:14


By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: "Be ye holy, for I am holy."

  • 1 Peter 1:15,16


Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by the faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit.

  • Romans 6:1-11

  • Romans 6:13

  • Romans 8:1,2

  • Romans 8:13 

  • Galatians 2:20 

  • Philippians 2:12,13 

  • 1 Peter 1:5 

4. Believers should be Water Baptized.

We believe baptism by full immersion is commanded by the Scriptures, once a person has made a clear decision to follow Jesus Christ. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world, and enter into a spiritual reality that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.

  • Matthew 28:19 

  • Mark 16:16 

  • Acts 10:47,48 

  • Romans 6:4 

5. Sharing Communion

The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements --bread and the fruit of the vine-- is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of his suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers "till He come!"

6. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit


All believers are entitled to and should expect the promise of the Father, which is the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire.  All believers should seek out this baptism according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church, seen repeatedly throughout the book of Acts and the New Testament books. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.

  • Luke 24:49 

  • Acts 1:4

  • Acts 1:8

  • 1 Corinthians 12:1-31 


This experience is distinct from the experience of the new birth. The Holy Spirit fills a believer at salvation, as Jesus and his disciples exemplify in John 20, but Jesus promised there was a gift of the Holy Spirit beyond this in Acts 1:8 -- a second work of the Holy Spirit. This second work is the Baptism of the was received by the believers for the first time in Acts chapter 2, and is repeatedly experienced throughout the history of the early church. 

  • Acts 8:12-17

  • Acts 10:44-46 

  • Acts 11:14-16

  • Acts 15:7-9 

The baptism of in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance.

  • Acts 2:4 

With the baptism in the Holy Spirit come such experiences as:

  • an overflowing fullness of the Spirit, John 7:37-39, Acts 4:8

  • a deepened reverence for God, Acts 2:43, Hebrews 12:28

  • an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work, Acts 2:42

  • and a more active love for Christ, for His Word and for the lost, Mark 16:20

7. Divine Healing, Power, and Miracles


Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, which was the beating Jesus took prior to his resurrection, and is the privilege and heritage right of all believers. 

  • Isaiah 53:4,5 

  • Matthew 8:16,17

  • James 5:14-16 

We believe that godliness includes a tangible display of God's power. (2 Tim 3: 5) The life of a believer should include supernatural circumstances and outcomes -- making them a sign and a wonder to the world around them. (Mark 16:17)


8. Jesus will Return


We believe the prophecies that Jesus' reign, is both already here, and not yet. We believe he will return to earth to gather his church just as he promised, and though no one knows the day or the hour, we prepare ourselves for that return at any moment.

  • 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17

  • Romans 8:23 

  • Titus 2:13 

  • 1 Corinthians 15:51,52 

These eight beliefs listed above, are the essentials.  We believe these are the most crucial and those that make us unique to the churches in our community. We also hold to the 16 Fundamental Truths of the Assemblies of God, most of which have been listed or mentioned above, but if you are interested in digging into those beliefs further,  those tenants can be found here.
