for God, and a great respect for God's Holy Word, the Bible. We believe that
the Holy Bible was inspired by God, who had His servants speak, write, and
preserve His word. The Bible reflects the style of the many people involved,
but it is from God, and should be respected as such.

word to mankind. It has been written over thousands of years by many people

Q: Why does your church exist?
exist because there are those that are hungry for the reality of the fullness
of God. There is a reality of God’s abiding presence that is not found in
production value but rather the Truth of the doctrine of the Apostles as
revealed by the Holy Spirit in power.
Q: How is “salvation” taught to believers
at your church?
Salvation is taught as the scripture teaches; Acts
16:30-32 and he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be
saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved,
you and your household.” (See also Acts
2:37-39, Romans 10:8-13, and II Corinthians 5:17)
Q: Do you teach the Baptism of the Holy
The Holy Spirit is the life of the Church and the very power of God within
those that believe. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the
initial evidence of speaking in tongues. After, we believe in a life empowered
by the Holy Spirit to live for God in the fullness of Sonship through Jesus.
(See Acts 2:1-4, 10:44-47, 13:52, 19:16;
Q: Do Believer’s believe in healing and
in the gifts of the Holy Spirit?
and completely! We believe that there is healing in Christ for those that
believe. (See Isaiah 53, Matthew
8:16-17, Luke 4:17-21, I Peter 2:24) We believe not only in the gifts of
the Holy Spirit to serve the Church, (See 1
Corinthians 12:4-11, 27-28) but also in the gifts of the Spirit to lead the
Church. (See Ephesians 4:7-16)
Q: Is there worship for Believer’s today
at your church?
There is the worship fueled by lives given to Christ that results in continual
praise toward our heavenly Father. Our praise style is neither traditional nor
contemporary. Our focus in praise is to honor God, not man. True praise is
beyond style, it is a matter of love. (See John
4:24 and Hebrews 13:15 -16)
Q: Is there liberty for Believer’s at
is freedom in the Spirit! He is the Spirit of liberty. Yet all must be done
decently and in order as the Word commands. You are free to worship in freedom.
You are free to exercise the gifts of the Spirit that you may have, but all in
accordance with 1 Corinthians 14:26-39.
We seek the will of the Holy Spirit, not the exaltation of individuals.
Q: Do you teach freedom in Christ or
Word of God is the rule of the Church. We are set free for freedom, not
bondage. (See Galatians 5:1, I
Corinthians 6:9-12) We live by the law of love as we follow the Holy
Spirit. (1 Corinthians 11:31-33)
Q: What does your church teach about
love to give. We give out of a cheerful heart, confident of blessing, and
without fear of condemnation. (See Genesis
14:18-20, Luke 6:38, II Corinthians 9:6-15, Galatians 2:10, Philippians
4:14-20, 1 John 3:16-17) Many begin with the tithes, (when we speak of
tithing or giving a tenth, we base it on the offering of Abraham to Melchizedek
and not on the requirements or curses of the Law), but all giving is strictly
as the Lord leads, on a voluntary basis, and is only between each one and the
Lord. DONATE TODAY!
Q: Does Our Youth Ministry staff make
recommendations to kids about which church to attend?
A: Our Youth Ministry values the
role that churches can play in kids' lives. Our Youth Ministry staff and
leaders are committed followers of Jesus Christ, and we encourage kids to
become involved in this local church that their families attend and to respect
the faith traditions of their families when it comes to denominational issues.
If their families are not connected with a church, we offer a much needed safe
haven of rest for all GOD’s children. If the family already attends our church,
all children are encouraged to attend there as well.
Q: What should parents say when their
kid tells them he’s been to Our Youth Ministry club during the week and now he
doesn’t need to go to church on Sunday?
A: We try to make it clear to kids
that Our Youth Ministry is not a substitute for their local church. Our
emphasis in Our Youth Ministry is reaching out to kids with the Gospel,
introducing them to Christ and helping them to grow in that relationship. While
Our Youth Ministry is officially connected to our church, we believe church is
a very important part of nurturing a relationship with Christ and we encourage
kids to live connected to the body of Christ by being an active member of a
local congregation. The church provides ministries in the life of a young
