About Us

What We Believe

In the Body of Christ, there are many areas that we all can agree upon (basic orthodoxy). There are many more things that we have allowed to separate us and make us a "house divided." Here is the core statement of faith that we hold to and ask our team members and international participants to agree with. In the marginal areas that do not affect the foundations of our faith, we wish to practice loving unity. However, that does not mean that we will fly with whatever cultural wind may be blowing. God is not finished with any of us yet, and until He is, we will work toward unity under His banner.

We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, the complete revelation of His will, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21)

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, 26; Dueteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1,3; 4:24; Acts 5:3-4; Romans 1:20; Ephesians 4:5-6; II Corinthians 13:14)

We believe Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13)

We believe that man and woman were created in the image of God, that we sinned and this brought not only physical death, but also spiritual death and separation from God. We are born with a want-to to sin and not one of us can stand before Him innocent in our own merit. (Genesis 1:26-27; 3:1-24; Romans 3:25; 5:12-18; I John 1:8)

We believe that Jesus died for our sins and was raised to life on the third day, that He was a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified by faith alone on the grounds of His shed blood. (Isaiah 53; Matthew 20:29; John 3:16; Romans 3:24; 5:1; I Corinthians 5:3; II Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:17; I John 2:2)

We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 4:16-17)

We believe that all who respond to the Holy Spirit's promptins and accept the Lord Jesus Christ through faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. (John 1:12-13; 3:3-5; 6:44; I Corinthians 2:14; Ephesians 2:8-9; James 1:18; I Peter 1:23)

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting joy of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (John 5:28-29; I Corinthians 15:11; II Corinthians 5:10; Revelations 20:4-15)

We believe that healing of the body is possible through the work of Christ. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church today. (Mark 6:13; James 5:15)
