What We Believe
"The Apostle’s Greed"
Acts Chapter 2
I Believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate; Was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into Hell.
On the third day, He rose from the dead. He ascended into Heaven And sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge both the living and the dead. I believe In the Holy Spirit, I believe in the Holy Christian Church, The communion of the saints, and The forgiveness of sins. Amen
Our Affirmation of Faith
We believe in the Father who is God Almighty; the Creator of all things; The sustainer of light and life.
(Genesis 1:1-31, Genesis 2:1-7, Psalm 90:1-2, John 1:1-4, Romans 1:20, 1 Corinthians 8:6)
We believe in the Son, who is Jesus Christ. God’s only Begotten Son (Psalm 2:7, Matthew 3:13-17). He was human and divine; truly lived, suffered and died; rose again from the dead, ascended on High and is coming again. (Luke 1:26-35, John 14:1-3, 1 Peter 3:18)
We believe in the Holy Spirit who was sent from God the Father and the Son. That the Holy Spirit is the active Messenger of the Godhead keeping the line of communication open between man and God. (1 Chronicles 12:18, Joel 2:28, John 14:26, John 15:26, Acts 1:8, Acts 13:4)
We believe in the two-definite works of grace. Conversion of the first work of grace and the foundation of Salvation (Romans 10: 8-13, Ephesians 2:8). Sanctification being the cleansing act of the blood of Jesus (Hebrews 10:10); the work that sets the believer apart as a vessel unto Honor to be used by God (2 Timothy 2:21).
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of Speaking in Tongues (Acts 2:1-4). We believe that when you receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit you receive Power (Acts 1:8)
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, Matthew 24:35). That in the Bible, God seeks to reveal His will to man and man seeks to respond to God’s Revelation (Colossians 1:18). We believe that the union of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is revealed through His church. That all believers are united into one body, the Church. (Romans 12:4-5, 1 Corinthians 12:18, John 1:1, Romans
