We believe in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of all men and women who put their faith in Him alone for eternal life. Those who receive new life in Christ are called to be holy in character and conduct, and can only live this way by being filled with the Lord’s Spirit. We call this change “entire sanctification.” We believe in the Bible and seek to establish our faith and actions on it’s teaching. We believe God wills for people everywhere to know Him and that the purpose of the Church is to tell the world about Christ through its worship, witness, and loving deeds.
What We Teach & Practice
The Bible: The Bible is the highest source of written authority for God’s plan for His people; it reveals how to live out that plan, individually and corporately. Beliefs, practices, priorities are to be anchored in clear biblical teachings.
Christlikeness: Jesus Christ is the defining feature of God’s will for all humanty. He gives the highest and most practical example for holy living or godliness. Christ also strengthens us to pursue integrity, excellence, faith, hope, and love.
Disciple-Making: Making disciples is a clear mandate from Christ. This requires a strong focus on evangelism and training in spiritual growth and holy living. Done effectively, this will produce and promote growth and health in and among the churches.
Local Church Centered: Our denomination exists to serve local congregations. It strives to serve and strengthen congregations as the most strategic points for evangelism and discipleship.
Servant Leadership: We respect the leadership placed over us. The authority and effectiveness of spiritual leadership is not primarily bestowed, but earned as leaders with loving and willing hearts serve God and mankind gladly! We desire to be leaders by serving.
Unity In Diversity: There is intrinsic value in every person. Unity becomes all the more important and beautiful in the light of the wide ranges of difference in personality, culture, race, talents, and perspectives. Loving each other eliminates devaluation and deprivation of life to one another.
