We pray together aloud because the Bible says, “They lifted up their voice to God with one accord” (Acts 4:24). We lift our hands in praise because the Bible says, “Lift up your hands in the
We sing with all our hearts because the Bible says, “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.” (Psalm 98:4).
We play musical instruments because the Bible says, “And all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments.” (2 Samuel 6:5).
We clap and shout unto God because the Bible says, “O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph” (Psalm 47:1).
We dance before the LORD because the Bible says, “Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs.” (Psalm 150:4).
We testify publicly because the Bible says, “I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.” (Psalm 22:22).
We anoint with oil for divine healing because the Bible says, “Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.” (James 5:14).
We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts because the Bible says, “When ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation.” (1 Corinthians 14:26).
What We Believe
We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy
We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ – Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38.
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. Acts 2:4
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. God ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11.
