Welcome

 

If you have never had the opportunity to be in a Spirit-fIlled service before, you will discover that the oldest form of worship on earth is a brand new experience for you. Join in with us as we praise God together in Spirit and in truth. 

What We Believe 

New Testament Plan of Salvation

Step 1: Repentance

Jesus died and so must we by repentance. Have faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and repent. Believe Jesus Christ is Lord and died for you. Be sorry for your sins and recognize your need of the Savior in Acts 3:19. Determine to turn from sin and give your life completely to Him. 

 

Not to be confused with: Salvation itself. Believing is necessary and leads to the other steps. See Acts 8:12-17 and Acts 11:14-18. 

Step 2: Water Baptism

 

Jesus was buried and so must we by baptism. Be baptized by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ. Be buried with him by total immersion in water. Have the saving name of Jesus Christ pronounced over you as in Acts 22:16. Obtain remission of sins in baptism through obedience and faith in His name.

Not to be confused with: Repeating the titles “Father, Son, Holy Ghost” and sprinkling or pouring. See Acts 8:35-38 and Acts 19:1-6.

We pray together outloud

[Acts 4:24] “they lifted up their voice to God with one accord…” 

 

 

We lift our hands in praise

[Psalm 134:2] “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.” 

 

 

We sing with all our hearts

[Psalm 98:4] “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.”

 

 

We play musical instruments

[II Samuel 6:5] “…and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments…”

 

 

We clap and shout unto God

[Psalm 47:1] “…O clap your hands all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.”

 

 

We dance in the spirit

[Psalm 150:4] “…Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.”

Biblical Expressions of Worship

Step 3: Baptism of the Holy Ghost

Jesus rose and so must we by receiving the Holy Ghost. Receive the Holy Ghost baptism evidenced by tongues. Meet the conditions of repentance, faith and obedience. Believe God has promised it and that you can receive it as in Acts 2:4. Know that tongues is the initial evidence of receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Not to be confused with: Tongues as a prayer language or one of the optional gifts of the Spirit. See John 7:38-39 and Acts 10:44-48.
