Our Vision is...
To train potential leaders and equip the Body of Christ with practical tools for effectively reaching lost persons to Christ, thus fulfilling the primary purpose of the church.
There is one true and living God who is eternal in existence, infinite in power, endless in knowledge, and unceasing in love. Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus lived a sinless life, performed many miracles and died on a cross for the sins of the world. He was buried, resurrected from the dead and ascended to the right hand of God. Jesus presently stands as our High Priest and will return one day to serve as King of kings and Lord of lords.
The Holy Spirit places believers into the Body of Christ and permanently indwells each. His indwelling provides comfort, guidance, power and security. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one in Substance, Majesty and Glory. The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is the inspired Word of God. It is infallible, authoritative and inerrant as originally given. It is complete in its content and sufficient for all time. Because of the sin of Adam, all men are born with a depraved nature that causes them to be alienated from God. This condition of depravity does not mean that mankind is completely evil but that men are capable of any evil and are totally helpless to stand righteous before God. Man's only hope is to become born again through the Lord Jesus Christ. Being born again means to have experienced the start of an entirely new life, new pattern of thought and new lifestyle that is the result of one having entered into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
This new life begins at the point of an individual repenting of his sins, acknowledging Jesus Christ as Savior, believing in his heart that Jesus has arisen from the dead and confessing Jesus as Lord. This new relationship begins by the grace of God and continues for all eternity by the grace of God. The Church, the Body of Christ, is comprised of persons, both Jew and Gentile, who have been redeemed by His blood and born again by the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church and the Senior Pastor is the earthly overseer. There will be a resurrection of the righteous and of the unrighteous. For the former, a resurrection into eternal joy and for the latter, a resurrection into eternal contempt.
There will be a pre-tribulation appearance of Jesus Christ to "Rapture" the Church unto Himself and a post-tribulation return to the earth to establish His Millennial Kingdom. All saints of all time shall have part in His theocratic government. The call of the local church is to join together in worship, prayer and edification through the Word of God, proclamation of the Gospel throughout the world as well as the observance of the ordinances of Water Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
