DOCTRINAL STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe in:

One loving God, eternally existent and equal in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in:

The deity of God's Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, fully human, fully divine; His virgin Birth, sinless life, compassionate ministry, miracles, atoning death and bodily resurrection. His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and personal imminent return in power and glory.

We believe in:

The Holy Spirit, who convicts the world of sin, indwells, instills with stability and power, leads into all truth, and helps the believer to live the Godly life.

We believe in:

The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, in the original manuscripts, as divinely inspired, infallible, and supreme authority for all believers.

We believe in:

The salvation of lost and sinful humanity through the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. We receive it as a gift through our faith and repentance. In salvation we experience forgiveness, newness of life in Christ, and the grace to live a life of continuing growth and holiness. We are adopted into God's family, becoming heirs of the Kingdom of God.

We believe in:

The Church, which is the Body of Christ, is composed of all believers who place their faith in Christ Jesus for salvation. The local church is a necessary manifestation of the universal Church, each working together in unity to reach out to the world for Christ.

We believe in:

The future, imminent return of Jesus Christ with glory and power to call the Church to Himself and to establish His Kingdom forever. Those who have placed their faith in Christ will be part of His eternal Kingdom.

We believe in:

The holy union of marriage between one man and one woman

We believe:

We are a non-profit, non-denominational, faith ministry; a Christian organization that responds compassionately to the needs of the inner city's less fortunate through mobilizing and working with the church and the community.
