Pentecostal Worship and Experience

We believe that demonstrative Pentecostal worship is not only acceptable but pleasing to God. We believe that the experience of the book of Acts is both normative and necessary for God’s people. Acts 2:1-4, Acts 2:38

Apostolic Doctrine and Lifestyle

We believe that the Church should pattern and model itself after the doctrine taught and practiced by the Apostles which is God’s plan for the Church. This includes living holy and distinct from the world in areas where culture is antithetical to the will and plan of God. Acts 2:42-43, Jude 3

Lifelong Discipleship

We believe that growing into a mature follower of Jesus is a lifelong process and cannot be accomplished in only a few days, weeks, or months. Every believer should continually seek to grow. 1 John 2:4-6, Hebrews 10:23-25

Kingdom Service

We believe that every follower of Jesus should be involved and working for the Kingdom of God. 1 Peter 4:10, Romans 12:4-8

Leadership Development

We believe that believers should be equipped, trained, and developed for involvement and leadership in the Kingdom. Ephesians 4:11-12, Acts 6:1-6

Strategic Church Planting

We believe that church planting is the best way to reach the most people for the Kingdom. Acts 1:8; Acts 11:19-30; Acts 13:1-3

Intentional Evangelism

We believe that we must intentionally seek to fulfill the great commission and share the Gospel with as many people as we can because evangelism does not happen by accident. Luke 19:10, Matthew 9:35-38

Biblical Stewardship

We believe that following God’s principles of money and possessions is imperative for the corporate body and individual believers to fulfill God’s plan and purpose. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, Malachi 3:8

Healthy Family and Personal Relationships

We believe God has designed us as individuals to be in relationship with others. We function best when these relationships follow biblical principles and practices. Romans 12:10, 1 John 4:7

Authentic Community

We believe God has designed the Church to exist and thrive in a caring, sharing, learning, and praying community with one another. Ephesians 4:1-6, Galatians 6:1-2
