As we proclaim Jesus, the Christ, as head of the Church and the Lord over all, our goal is to teach the word of God with simplicity and understanding so that it may be applied to our everyday lives in a practical manner. Thereby, being transformed into people of excellence, changing our immediate world and all those with whom we come into contact. Ultimately, producing believers who are ready for the coming of Christ.
We believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We further believe one must be water baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit gives the utterance, according to Acts 2:38 and Acts 2:4. We believe this constitutes the new birth as recorded in St. John 3:1-8 and must be followed by a life of sanctification and holiness by those who will be ready at the second coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our objective is the salvation of souls.
