A Lighthouse Of Unconditional Love

Beliefs

The purpose of our Statement of Faith is to communicate our basic beliefs regarding a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. We truly desire to walk in the love of Jesus Christ with all Christians according to John 13:34-35 “A new command I give to you: Love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

We believe in one God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • Ephesians 4:6
  • I Timothy 2:5
  • I John 5:7

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; crucified, died, buried and resurrected. He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father, and is true God and true man.

  • II Timothy 3:16
  • Deuteronomy 4:2 

We believe that all are born sinners; that the Holy Spirit convicts of sin; that the Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for sin by shedding His precious blood on the cross as the atonement for sin; that those who refuse to accept His sacrifice for their sin are eternally lost; and that those who repent of their sins and personally accept and confess the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior receive forgiveness of sin, everlasting life, and become children of God

  • Colossians 2:12
  • Acts 19:1-5
  • Acts 8:36-38

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance; that all gifts of the Holy Spirit (such as prophecy and healing) are valid and operative today; and that the fruit of the Holy Spirit should be increasingly evident in a Christian’s life.
