- We believe the church is a
faith community that consists of anyone who by faith has accepted God’s
plan of salvation; has been born again and has surrendered his/her life to
the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
- The Church is God’s chosen
people, whether Jew or Gentile, who have been adopted into the family of
God through faith in the atoning blood of Christ.
- We believe in the autonomy of
the local church, free of any external authority and control.
- God calls elders that are men
of character, integrity and faith that is evidenced by their daily walk,
to oversee His church according to His Word.
- Anyone who has the gifts and
qualifications to fulfill the role of deacon should be allowed to do so at
the prayerful selection of the elders.
