What We Believe
Prevenient Grace is the grace that goes before and draws us to God. God draws us then lovingly awaits our response. (John 6:44; John 12:32)
Justifying Grace is a gift of God that says He no longer counts our sins against us when we ask for forgiveness. (2 Corinthians 5:19) Christ’s death on the cross makes our justification possible.
Sanctifying Grace is the grace that transforms us by the power of His Holy Spirit working within us. We speak often of Christian Perfection or Entire Sanctification as a second instantaneous work of grace when God fills our hearts with divine love.
Transformation in grace continues to occur over a lifetime as we submit our wills to His will.
Ultimately, we seek to live in close relationship with Jesus Christ and make Christlike disciples as we model the Christian message by His transforming grace.
We are a Christian People.
We are a Holiness People.
We are a Missional People.
We believe in one God– Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil.
We believe that those who actively chose to reject God are lost.
We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgement will take place.
