OUR VISION

Write the vision and make it plain upon tables that he may run that readeth it. (Habakkuk 2:2)

Our vision is to birth, establish, and maintain a strong Word-oriented local church. Our desire is for the supernatural power of God to manifest in our services and in our personal lives.

Our overall objective is to train each person in every age group to reach their fullest potential in Christ Jesus our Lord (Ephesians 4:11-16).

Our vision is to train and equip people in the ministry of helps so that they may find their place in the body and in turn help meet the needs of others (1 Corinthians 12:28).

A church is a body and each part is dependent upon every other part. As each person takes their place of responsibility and service, the body will grow and much will be accomplished (1 Corinthians 12:12).

Our church vision is found on these scriptures:

The Word of God declares…that neither is there any Rock like our God. (1 Samuel 2:2)

…for they drank of that spiritual Rock and that Rock was Christ. (1 Corinthians 10:4)

Jesus said that if we would be a doer of the Word, dig deep and lay a foundation on the Rock then nothing could shake us (Luke 6:46-49). The Rock is the revealed Word of God.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe in one God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, creator of all things (John 1:1-5, 10-14; Matthew 28:18-20).

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, dead, buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven.

We believe the Bible and its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12).

We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the eternal happiness of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost (I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15).

We believe in personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21; Romans 10:8-10).

We believe in sanctification through the Word of God by the Holy Spirit and in personal holiness of heart and life (Romans 8:16; I John 3:18-19, 24) .

We believe in total prosperity:

(a) Spiritual (III John 2; II Corinthians 5:17-21).
(b) Mental (II Timothy 1:7; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3).
(c) Physical (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; I Peter 2:24).
(d) Financial (Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6-15; Deuteronomy 28:1-14).
(e) Social (Proverbs 3:4; Luke 2:52; Esther 2:15).

We believe in divine healing through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ and that healing is included in the redemption (Psalm 103:3).

We believe in water baptism and the baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the new birth, in speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance and the gifts of the Spirit and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit. We believe that all are available to believers (Acts 1:8; 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2, 6; Galatians 5:16-26).

We believe in the Lord’s supper. “And when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, ‘This is my body which is broken for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup” (I Corinthians 11:24-25, 28).

We believe in the Christian’s hope – the soon coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians 4:16-17).

We believe the Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and Church of the first born, whose names are written in Heaven (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23).

We believe in evangelizing and missionary work in accordance with the Christian commission (Matthew 28:19).

We believe that a person’s identity as a male or female is determined by their gender assigned at birth (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:22; Mark 10:6; Matthew 19:4).

We believe that God instituted marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family, the basic structure of human society (Genesis 2:24). The Church shall only sanction or conduct marriages between a man and a woman. God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged other than in the context of marriage between a man and a woman (Genesis 19:5; 26:8-11; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1, 6:9; I Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4).
