What We Believe

About God

God is the loving Creator of all things, both seen and unseen. God is eternal and completely good, knowing all things and holding all power and majesty. God exists as the Trinity.  He is three persons, yet one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God desperately desires a relationship with us and towards this end continually invites us into a relationship of faith, friendship, learning, and service.

About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit, sent from God to live inside all who believe in Jesus Christ, teaches, comforts, and empowers us, giving each follower diverse gifts, fostering unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ-like character, and love among Christians. The empowering of the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father, is available for every Christian.

About The Bible

We believe that God speaks to us in the Bible, His inerrant word.  It is our privilege to seek to understand God's message and apply it responsibly to our lives. The Bible is our standard in all we say and do. We believe that God's unchangeable Biblical message ought to be presented in a relevant way portraying a real hope, to a real people through a real God.  It’s our desire that this message is free of religious jargon and understandable to the people of our community.

Assemblies of God

The General Council of the Assemblies of God (USA), one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in the United States, was organized in 1914 by a broad coalition of ministers who desired to work together to fulfill common objectives, such as sending missionaries and providing fellowship and accountability. Formed in the midst of the emerging worldwide Pentecostal revival, the Assemblies of God quickly took root in other countries and formed indigenous national organizations. The Assemblies of God (USA) is a constituent member of the World Assemblies of God Fellowship – one of the largest Pentecostal fellowships in the world.
