WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the Trinity. Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God. God became flesh and dwelt among us.
He was crucified and buried and after the third day He rose from the grave and ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, now interceding for us.
We believe in the Holy Spirit. He dwells inside of us leading us in truth.He convicts the world of their sins.
We believe in the Bible, the Word of God, which was inspired by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We believe speaking in tongues is proof of the baptism.
We believe that the gifts and fruits of the Spirit need to be visible in all.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the head of the church and that the church is responsible for spreading the Gospel.
We believe in the baptism of water by full submersion.
We believe in holy communion as done by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper.

We believe in Judgement day where Jesus Christ will lay His judgement down.

WHY DO WE PRAISE GOD OUT LOUD?
“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name” (Ps. 103:1).
“My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear of it and be glad” (Ps. 34:2).
WORSHIP THROUGH SONG
Singing plays a major role in worshiping the Lord. It is a sign of gladness and victory. God’s people have reason to be glad.
“Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing” (Ps. 100:2).
WHY THE CLAPPING OF HANDS?
“Oh, clap your hands, all you people! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!” (Ps. 47:1).“… They anointed him, and the people clapped their hands and shouted.” (II Kings 11:12).
It is an the expression of gladness and victory. “So that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people, for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the sound was heard afar off.” (Ezra 3:13).“And all the people went up after him and the people played the flutes and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth seemed to split with their sound.” (I Kings 1:40). “Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen” (Luke 19:37).
WHY PRAY WITH RAISED HANDS?
“Thus I will bless you while I live; I will lift up my hands in your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips” (Ps. 63:4-5).
“Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord” (Ps. 134:2).
“I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting” (I Tim. 2:8).
THE MEANING OF SPEAKING IN TONGUES AND THE INTERPRETATION THEREOF
“Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues” (I Cor. 14:39).
“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all … to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues” (I Cor. 12:7, 10).
“But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men” (I Cor. 14:3).
WHY PRAY WITH THE LAYING ON OF HANDS AND ANOINTING WITH OIL?
“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven” (James 5:14-15).
WHY AN ALTER CALL?
“Come now and let us reason together, says the Lord, though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white like snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isa. 1:18)
“But as many as received him, to them he gave right to become children of God to those who believe in His name” (Ps. 32:11).
“Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).
WHY ARE WE EXUBERANT?
“After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God! … and the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying “Amen! Alleluia! … and I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thundering saying “Alleluia! for the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!” (Rev. 19:1, 4, 6).
“And one cried to another and said: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory! … and the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke” (Is. 6:3, 4).
