-1 Peter 2:5


6.(Love the Family)

Everything we do should foster loving and caring relationships to build the body of Christ.

Mission statement

Our mission is to empower this generation to live passionate Jesus focused lives that impact and change this world for the Kingdom of God.

Core Principles

1- Worship (loving God with everything we have, my every breath should bring glory to his name)

2- Consecrated (live a life set apart for God)

3- Family (We are a family in Christ)

4- Lifestyle Evangelism (Every part of our lives should preach the Gospel)

5- Love your Neighbor (show people their worth because of Christ)

6- Servants to All (The greatest in the Kingdom are those who serve the most)

7- Priesthood of all Believers (Everybody's gifts matter)

8- Discipleship (can't give what you don't have)

We believe in one God – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – and that Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh (John 14:6; Ephesians 1:17; 2 Corinthians 13:14; I John 4:2; Galatians 4:4-6).

We believe in salvation by grace through the blood and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that Salvation is a gift of eternal life to those who repent, confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in their heart that God raised Him from the dead (Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 2:38; 3:19-20; 4:12; Romans 3:23; 10:9-10).

We believe that all Christian disciples should be baptized by immersion in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20).  

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as evidenced by the demonstrations of God’s power through the gifts of the Holy Spirit; we believe in Divine healing, casting out of devils, miracles, tongues, interpretation, prophecy, and laying on of hands (Acts 2:3; 1 Corinthians 12, 13, 14; Hebrews 6:2).

We believe that each Christian should manifest the Fruit of the Spirit, become mature, and attain the whole measure of the fullness of Christ (1 Corinthians 14; Galatians 5:20-21; Ephesians 4:11-12, 6:11; Hebrews 6:1-2).

We believe in a literal heaven and hell (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:42-48; Hebrews 6:2).

We believe in the soon return of the Lord (Matthew 26:64; Acts 1:11; I Thes 4:13-18, 5:1-3). 

We believe all believers have been called to be witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea at home), and in Samaria (neighboring cities) and onto the uttermost parts of the earth (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 1-8; Revelation 12:11).

We believe that marriage is between one man and one woman (defined respectively as the gender in which God created each) (Romans 1-8; Leviticus 20).

We believe that life begins at conception (Matthew 1:20).

We believe in caring for the poor, widows, orphans, and those who are suffering from hunger, homelessness, or other physical needs. We believe in caring for the needs of the Body of Christ, and loving our neighbors, and in loving one another (Matthew 25:35-40; John 13:34-35; James 1:27; Galatians 6:10).

We believe in the fivefold ministry of the Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Teachers and Evangelists, the foundation of the Church being the ministry of the Apostles and Prophets and that these callings are the authority gifts to the Church that the Saints might be edified and equipped to do every good work (I Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 2:20, 4:11-13).
