God is great. He's all powerful, knowing everything about us and present in our lives even though we can’t see or touch Him; His love for mankind has never changed - He wants what’s best for everyone.

We believe that the Holy Spirit, sent from God to live in all who believe in Jesus, teaches, comforts, and empowers us, giving each follower of Jesus diverse gifts for serving in the church and serving others in the world. We believe that it is through the Holy Spirit that we change and develop a holy life and Jesus-like character.

Jesus paid the ultimate price to save us from our sins. He shed His blood on a cross, providing forgiveness for all your wrongdoings. When we place our faith in Him it provides us with forgiveness and salvation. This holy act can never be earned by us; rather it’s a gift from God that enables freedom from guilt and new life for those who believe.

We believe that the Holy Spirit, sent from God to the world to make people aware of their need to be more like Jesus Christ. We believe it's only through the Holy Spirit’s guidance, comfort, and conviction we change and grow into people more like Him. Believers are entitled to and should earnestly seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit. We believe this was the normal experience of Christ followers in the early Christian Church. With the Holy Spirit baptism comes power for life and service today.

We will either spend our lives eternally separated from God by sin or we can have a saved relationship with him through forgiveness and salvation, which inevitably leads to an eternity in heaven. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
