Dove and Flame

  • We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who reveals himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully man at the same time, who became like us to bring about our salvation.
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is active in the world, bringing us salvation.
  • We believe that the Bible is the word of God, giving us all we need to know about how to be saved.
  • We believe that we are all sinners by both nature and act and need God’s forgiveness and cleansing.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross and that by trusting in His death, we can be restored to a right relationship to God.
  • We believe that God has enabled us to turn from sin but that He has not forced us to do so.
  • We believe that each person must repent, turn away from his sins, and trust Christ to accept Him.
  • We believe that when we turn from sin and trust in Christ, the old record of sin is wiped clean, and we are born anew, thus becoming a part of the family of God.
  • We believe that after being born anew, we need the fullness of God’s spirit in our hearts.  When we make a complete commitment to Him, He cleanses our spirit, fills us with His perfect love and gives us the power to live victoriously.
  • We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, carrying on His mission through the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in baptism and urge people to be baptized as Christians.
