About us


“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.” – Ephesians 1:17-18

our values

we believe


Christ’s command (Matthew 28:19)

Go and preach the gospel and strive to live it with compassion, love and mercy.

One God (Deuteronomy 6:4)

He created the heavens and the earth. He chose to reveal Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).

Baptism by Immersion (Romans 6:3-6; Acts 2:38.)

In the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4)

Evidenced by speaking in other tongues.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit (Corinthians 12:1-11)

He ministers to His church through the spiritual gifts of: tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy, words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2)
