Our Mission is to point people to the cross and revitalize the church by teaching sound biblical principles on kingdom citizenship, discipleship and relationship, which will result in the true restoration in worship, evangelism, and education.
We Believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.
We Believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit.
We Believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.
We Believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.
We Believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
We Believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.
We Believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.
We Believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world.
The vision of this ministry is to manifest the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven, as Jesus stated in Matthew 6:10. We desire to see the kingdom of God demonstrated in every area of our lives. The Kingdom of God is not in word, but power. And these are the things that Jesus began To both Do and Teach.
