What We Believe
THE FOURSQUARE CHURCH:
We are part of the worldwide family of Foursquare Churches. (International Church of the Foursquare Gospel) The term "Foursquare" stands for the four-fold ministry of Jesus Christ as:
1) The Savior (Romans 10:9)
2) The Healer (1 Peter 2:24)
3) The Baptizer with the Holy Spirit (Luke 3:16)
4) The Coming King (Acts 1:11).

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17).
THE ETERNAL GODHEAD:
We believe God is Triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).
THE FALL OF MAN:
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection (Romans 5:12).
THE PLAN OF SALVATION:
We believe that even though we are all sinners, Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8)
SALVATION THROUGH GRACE :
We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).
REPENTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE:
We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (I John 1:9).
THE NEW BIRTH :
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).
DAILY CHRISTIAN LIVING :
We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).
BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER:
We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matt. 28:19). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's Supper by the symbolic use of the bread and juice of the vine (I Corinthians 11:24, 25).
BAPTISM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT:
We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).
THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE:
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).
THE GIFTS AND FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT :
We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian; and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (I Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22)
We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism (Philippians 4:5).
We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST :
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (I Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
CHURCH RELATIONSHIP :
We believe that every believer should be a member of a local church which the Bible describes as the Body of Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25).
THE FINAL JUDGEMENT:
We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgement seat of God, and there receive eternal life or death (2 Corinthians 5:10).
We believe that Heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).
We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15).
We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (James 5:20).
TITHES AND OFFERINGS:
We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7).
