We Believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the Cross, was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, ascended back to the right hand of God the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for His Church. After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He sent the Holy Spirit to the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today (Matthew 1:18; John 3:16; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 3:18).
We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower for service all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ. We believe that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Bible, and that the use of the gifts is valid for today within the guidelines of Scripture. We believe that love is more important than the most spectacular gifts, and without love all exercise of the spiritual gifts is compromised (John 14:26; 16:13; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19-20; 12-14).
