We believe in salvation through Faith in Jesus Christ, his atoning life, death and resurrection, provided through the action of the Holy Spirit, expressed in a life of devotion, worship, and service in and through the community of Christ.

BLESSINGS OF CHRIST:
We believe that Jesus Christ, through his gracious love and through the power of the Spirit, provides blessings upon Christians; those blessings bring salvation, healing, spiritual and financial prosperity.
John 3:16; James 5:13-15; Genesis 12:1-3; Luke 4:18-19 Luke 24:45-47; Romans 10:9-10; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 1 Corinthians 13; Galatians 5:22-24. Philippians 5:19
The healing blessing of Christ is a life of wholeness and health. Divine healing through the power of Holy Spirit, integral to the gospel, is the result of God’s loving grace, and is provided through God’s atoning sacrifice. All healing, is the work of God. The fulfilled healing of all people will be found in the eternal, resurrection life of all persons who have placed their faith in Christ.
Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 9:35; Acts 10:38; James 5:14-16
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit, implemented at Pentecost, is the promise of the Father for all Christians, providing power for faithful, victorious Christian living, power for effective service. We believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including speaking in tongues, are viable and desirable today, working within the individual and within the Christian community.
24:49; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 1 Corinthians 12
SECOND COMING OF CHRIST:
We believe that Jesus will return to earth, wherein all Christians who have died will one day rise from their graves and will meet the Lord. Christians of all ages will live with God forever.
