We are a non-aligned house church that worships the One True God according to the Abrahamic Faith and the monotheistic teachings of Jesus and the Apostles. We exist to serve the Body of Christ and all others who seek to know God and worship Him in spirit and truth.
We are a small flock whom God led out of the legalistic bondage espoused by the Worldwide Church of God before 1994. It was not our intent to start a splinter group, but we disagreed with the position and philosophies of the WCG, its splinter groups, and most of the mainstream Evangelical churches.
We do not claim to be the only Church of God, nor do we claim to have all the "Truth." We are constantly learning through research and study of God's word, and growing in grace and truth. We believe that the true Church of God consists of all regenerated (born again) believers scattered throughout the world regardless of denominational affiliation. Jesus Christ established only one church on the Day of Pentecost, 32 A.D. and told His disciples that the gates of Hell would never prevail against it. That church still exists today though small and scattered.
We realize that we cannot convert anyone. The only thing we can do is show someone what God's word says. It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit to lead them into understanding. It is, therefore, not our mission to try to convert anyone, but to teach them the grace of Jesus Christ in love and hope that they do not fight against God's grace.
What We Believe
•There is one God, the Father (1 Cor. 8:6), the one God of the creed of Israel affirmed by Jesus Christ (Mark 12:28ff). The Father is "the only true God" (John 17:3).
•There is one Lord Messiah, Jesus (1 Cor. 8:6), who was supernaturally conceived as the Son of God (Luke 1:35), and foreordained from the foundation of the world (1 Pet. 1:20)
•The Holy Spirit is the personal, operational presence and power of God extended through the risen Christ to believers (Ps. 51:11).
•The Bible, consisting of the Hebrew canon (Luke 24:44) and the Greek New Testament Scriptures, is the inspired and authoritative revelation of God (2 Tim. 3:16).
•In the atoning, substitutionary death of Jesus, his resurrection on the third day, and his ascension to the right hand of the Father (Ps. 110:1; Acts 2:34-36), where he is waiting until his enemies are subdued (Heb. 10:13).
•In the future visible return of Jesus Christ to raise to life the faithful dead (1 Cor. 15:23), establish the millennial Kingdom on earth (Rev. 20:1-6, etc.) and bring about the restoration of the earth promised by the prophets (Acts 1:6; 3:21; 26:6, 7).
•In the regenerating power of the Gospel message about the Kingdom (Matt. 13:19; Luke 8:12; John 6:63), enabling the believer to understand divine revelation and live a life of holiness.
•In baptism by immersion upon reception of the Gospel of the Kingdom and the things concerning Jesus (Acts 8:12; Luke 24:27).
•In the future resurrection of the saved of all the ages to administer the renewed earth with the Messiah in the Kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:2; 2 Tim. 2:12; Rev. 2:26; 3:21; 5:10).
•Christians ought never to take up arms and kill their enemies and fellow believers in other nations (Matt. 26:52; John 15:19; 18:36; 1 Pet. 2:9-11; 1 Chron. 22:8)
