Our mission is to proclaim the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ in its entirety, to win souls and to raise spiritual leaders through faith to become disciples of Jesus Christ (Yeshua HaMashiach). We are called by God, guided by the Bible, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
WHO WE ARE
We are a biblically-based, non-denominational congregation who believes that God created all things in six(literal) days, and rested on the seventh day(Sabbath/Shabbat) which He also instructed all believers to do the same. (Ex 20:8; Lev. 23:3; Luke 4:16; Hebrews 4:9-11).
We believe in resting and gathering for worship on the Lords’ day.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the WHOLE bible, and that it is the inspired word of God. We believe that the Bible is inerrant and infallible. We believe that The Bible enables and empowers us to live for God everyday. We believe that God is the same, yesterday, today and forever and that His word and standard has been, is and will be the same. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the speaking of tongues (with interpretation). We believe in the literal, physical, personal, and visible return of Jesus Christ to the earth. We believe in the ‘Trinity’ of God in three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (1John 5:7; Genesis 1:26). The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. There is only ONE God and these three are ONE.
All have sinned and fallen short, therefore deserving punishment. God the Father, sent His only begotten Son (Jesus Christ) to satisfy that punishment for those who believe in Him. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life. He loved us so much that He died for our sins taking the punishment that we deserve. He was crucified, dead and buried, and arose from the dead as it is written.
One must commit their life to Christ and sincerely believe in their heart and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior, declaring Jesus as Lord. After becoming a believer, one must continue on in the faith, walking uprightly and living a repentant life.
Our vision is to help people live for God and fulfill their purpose in HIM.
