Our Beliefs

  • We believe in divine healing, that Jesus is the healer, and that by the stripes of Jesus, we are healed. 
  • We believe in giving alms and caring for the poor, sick, and homeless.
  • We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with evidence of one or more of the nine spiritual gifts. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11).
  • We believe in the name of Jesus and the authority invested in that name.
  • We believe in tithing and bringing offerings into the church to advance the Kingdom of God. 
  • We believe in water baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost (Jesus). 
  • We believe that after death, eternal life begins either in heaven or hell. Where one spends eternity is based on your decision to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior and live according to God's words and commandments.
  • We believe that faith is acting out on the Word of God. 
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and that He was crucified and buried. On the third day, He arose from the dead and ascended on high where He took His seat at the right hand of God the Father.
  • We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God inspired by God. 

Our Vision Scripture

“And they that shall be of thee, shall build the old waste places, they shall raise up the foundations of many generations; they shall be called the repairers of the breach and restorers of paths to dwell in.” – Isaiah 58:12

Our Culture 

We consider ourselves to be a progressive church, where we are always open to new ideas, and in fact, look for them.

“The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.” – Proverbs 18:15 (KJV). 

We have identifiable leadership, which means no usurping of authority or self-appointment. Our leadership is designated, acknowledged, and obvious. 

We adhere to the belief of acceptance of divine demonstration without doubtfulness. Healing, deliverance, and prosperity are vital parts of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and you do not have to be in a special category to be blessed by God. 

 “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said: “Of a truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.” – Acts 10:34 (KJV)

As a whole, we think that timeliness and punctuality are the virtues of princes and absolutely necessary before entering into any promotion.

“Tardiness is a sign of rebellion.” – Mike Murdock

Our members contribute with expectancy, meaning God’s people should “take ownership” of the service. We should all be active participants, learning and listening as we go along with the instructor. 

We nurture a culture of acceptance that promotes freedom. We battle legalism, do not tolerate racism, involve ourselves with denominationalism, nor pry into others’ (ministries’) affairs. Anybody can come and will be wholeheartedly welcome. 

“The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let those who hear this say, “Come!” Let those who are thirsty come! Let those who want the water of life take it as a gift.” – Rev. 22:17

We have a culture that embraces order and opposes pandemonium, confusion, and chaos. Remember, God is a God of order, so let there be decency and order in God’s house. 

We multiply and reproduce with integrity. Our working church members are NOT Christian beggars, and solicitors, without balance.  

“Ask not what the Kingdom can do for you, but what you can do for the Kingdom.”

We believe that every church member is a minister, and every joint must supply, as we all have something to give and contribute.  (2 Corinthians 5:18b and Romans 12:5 – KJV)
