What we believe

We believe that Biblical principles apply to our daily lives just as much today as they did 2,000 years ago when Jesus explained them to His disciples. We believe in a direct personal experience with God through baptism with the Holy Spirit. The term Pentecostal is derived from Pentecost, the Greek name for the Jewish Feast of Weeks. For Christians, this event commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the followers of Jesus Christ, as described in the second chapter of the Acts of the Apostles.

As an Assemblies of God member church, we believe in 16 doctrines of fundamental truth:

  • The Scriptures Inspired
  • The One True God
  • The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • The Fall of Man
  • The Salvation of Man
  • The Ordinances of the Church
  • The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
  • The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit
  • Sanctification
  • The Church and Its Mission
  • The Ministry
  • Divine Healing
  • The Blessed Hope
  • The Millennial Reign of Christ
  • The Final Judgment
  • The New Heavens and the New Earth
