We believe there is ONE true God who has revealed Himself as one God in 3 persons:
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit
We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God. He came to earth as a baby (born of a virgin), lived a pure and sinless life, died on the cross for the sin of the world, was raised from the dead, and is now seated at the right hand of Father God.
We believe that the Holy Spirit has the attributes of an intelligent being. He can be grieved, he guides, he knows, he moves, he gives information, he commands, he forbids, he sends forth, he reproves, and he can be sinned against. The works of God are credited to the Holy Spirit, including creation, inspiration, giving of life, and sanctification.
We believe that both the Old and New Testaments are God's revealed Word to man and that [It is] the power of God unto salvation to all who believe.
Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. It is a free gift, wholly without human works.
"Works" do not earn us salvation. They are merely the fruit of salvation in our lives.
The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin. When we repent, we acknowledge our sin and turn completely away from it. True repentance causes a change of mind and a reversal of direction.
Sanctification is a separation from what is evil and a dedication unto God. It is the process of being made holy. By the Spirit of God, we are able to "be holy" as God is holy.
We believe that addiction is a symptom of a deeper problem. A plant has roots. Without roots, it would not exist. If you find and remove the ROOTS and the fruit will shrivel up and die. We believe that there is COMPLETE healing and deliverance from any kind of addiction through the power and love of Jesus Christ.
