STATEMENT OF FAITH
In the heart of the city with the people of the city at heart
We believe salvation is by grace through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. There is only one true God, who is revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Because all have sinned all must trust in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus for the remission of sins. There is no way to reconcile with God or escape from eternal judgment, except through the propitiatory sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.
We believe "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8) and that His ministry by the Holy Spirit has not changed. We acknowledge, encourage and seek all of the biblical gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit as present and vital for the church to accomplish her full purpose today.
We believe in water baptism. We believe that the "baptism in the Holy Spirit" is an additional impartation which may be subsequent to regeneration (see Acts 8:15-17 and 19:1-6). This baptism is usually accompanied by the gifts of the Spirit, such as speaking in tongues, prophecy, etc. We believe that this gift is presently available for all who believe (Acts 2:38-39), but is not essential for salvation or regeneration Just as Paul made it a priority to instruct those believers and pray for them to receive and use these gifts, we are committed to doing the same through our music and our message.
