Our Mission Statement

Luke 4:18-19

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lords favor.


Our Vision Statement

Acts 15:15-18

15 The words of the prophets are in agreement with this, as it is written:

16 After this I will return
    and rebuild Davids fallen tent.
Its ruins I will rebuild,
    and I will restore it,
17 that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord,
    even all the Gentiles who bear my name,
says the Lord, who does these things
18     things known from long ago.


Statement of Faith

We believe in One God: 

Yeshua (Jesus Christ) said in John 10:30:  "I and My Father are one".

 

Yeshua (Jesus Christ)

We believe that Yeshua is the Son of God, the Messiah, the Eternal One in Whom all the fullness of the God-head dwells in bodily form. He is the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the uniquely begotten Son of God, full of grace and truth. (John 1: 1-14; Colossians 2:9)

 

Deity of Yeshua

We believe in the Deity of Yeshua, His virgin birth (Isaiah 9:6; Isaiah 7:14; Matt 1: 18-25), His sinless life (Isaiah 53, 2 Corinthians 5:21), His miracles (Matthew 4: 23-25), and His atonement through His shed blood (Isaiah 53, Daniel 9: 24-27, Romans 3: 21-31, Hebrews 9 &10). We believe in His bodily resurrection (Zechariah 12:10, Zechariah 14, Matthew 28), and in His personal and physical return in power and glory (Daniel 7: 9-14, Matthew 26: 57-64, Revelation 1: 1-18).

 

 Scriptures

We believe that the Bible - Genesis through Revelation - is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21) To that end, we use the New King James Version of the Holy Bible as our primary text, while embracing other mainstream translations including, The New American Standard Bible, The Complete Jewish Bible, The King James Version, and the New International Version to name a few.

 

God's Commandments

We believe and teach that God's commandments were not done away with at the cross. We believe grace is given so that we can freely as sinners lean into Jesus as we walk in His commandments but knowing grace is provided when we fall short (Romans 12:1-2; Matthew 5-6-7; John 14:23)

 

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as the gift of God promised by Yeshua to all believers. (Matthew 3:11, Luke 24:49, John 14: 16-17, Acts 2: 38-39)  We believe and embrace the ministry, operation, and all the gifts of the Holy Spirit as described in the Scriptures, with the gift of tongues being one of the manifestations of the Spirit. (Acts 19: 1-7, I Corinthians 12: 1-11)

 

Israel

We believe that believers are part of Israel, both natural and wild branches grafted into Israel by the blood of the Messiah (Romans 11). We DO NOT believe or teach that believers have replaced Israel, but rather have become part of, and joint-heirs of the promise, and members of the Commonwealth of Israel, (Eph. 2:11) having the Torah (God's Word) written upon their hearts and minds according to the New Covenant. (Romans 11: 11-24, Jeremiah 31: 31-34, Hebrews 8: 8-12)

 

Heaven and Hell

We believe in the resurrection of the living and the dead. Those who trust in Yeshua have received eternal life in the presence of God, having their names written in the Lambs Book of Life. Those who do not believe experience eternal separation from the presence of God, having their names blotted out of the Lambs Book of Life (Hell). (Romans 1:18, 1 Corinthians 15, John 5: 19-29, Revelation 3:5; 20 & 21)

 

Marriage

We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship  between one natural born man and one natural born woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin (Genesis 2:24-25; Exodus 20:14, 17, 22:19; Leviticus 18:22-23, 20:13, 15-16; Matthew 19:4-6, 9; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 15-20; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; Jude 7). We believe that God created the human race male and female and that all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one's birth gender is immoral and therefore sin (Genesis 1:27; Deuteronomy 22:5).

 

Day of Fellowship & Worship

In its simplest definition, Sabbath means rest. When God rested from His work of creation, He gave us the 7th Day as our Sabbath rest. The Sabbath is given as a sign between God and His people, and as a commemoration of our Creator, and the very act of creation. God calls each Sabbath day a holy convocation. Convocation means a gathering together; a rehearsal; a community of believers assembled or gathered for worship, praise, and celebration. Sabbath is a day of rejoicing and joining with one another in the Presence of the Lord!

(Exodus 20:8-11 NKJV)Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and sanctified it.
