  • We believe     that repentance is very important for today.  Biblically speaking repentance is turning from the ways of the world, wickedness, evil, things contrary to the Word of God.  God is calling out to all creation for all those who have not been born again to repent of their ways and turn to Him.  God is also calling out to Christians, for them to turn from the ways of the world (lives contrary to the Word of God) and to live lives that bring glory and honor to Him. (Matthew 5:13-16, Matthew 5:43-48, John 5:23, John 13:34-35 & 15:1-8, Luke 10:30-37, Matthew 26:26-28 & 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:42-47, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Romans 6:1-10, Colossians 3:12-17, 1 Peter 1:15-16, 1 John 1:6-10)

  • We believe     that the Church is not a building but people of God (Ephesians 1:22-23, Colossians 1:24, Hebrews 12:23)

  • We believe     that the Church is not denominational (Acts 2:42-47, 1 Corinthians 1:10-17, 2 Corinthians 13:11, Philippians 2:1-4) meaning that the body of Christ is under the authority of Jesus and not man’s traditions.
  • We believe     that Christians are to partake of the Lord’s Supper (also called Communion) which is done in remembrance of what the Lord Jesus did to make atonement for our sins. (Matthew 26:26-28, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

  • We believe     that Spiritual Gifts and Ministries are to be in an orderly fashion (1 Corinthians 14:20-33, Galatians 5:22-26, 2 Peter 1:1-9)
  • We believe     that love is a true mark of a Christian (Matthew 22:35-40, John 13:34-35, 1 Corinthians 13:1-13)

  • We believe     that Christians are to be witnesses for Christ (Matthew 5:13-16, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8, Romans 10:14-17, Ephesians 5:11-17, Colossians 4:2-6, 2 Timothy 4:1-5, 1 Peter 3:15, Jude 3)
