We believe salvation is a process of wholeness that is worked out throughout one’s spiritual journey. This process begins at the point of an individual’s willingness to confess their relationship with God! Salvation is a lifelong journey and apexes with an eternal redemption rewarded at one’s earthly transition to heaven.
We believe the bible is a key source for theological understanding. For years, it has been able to help individuals understand how communities engaged God in the past. By critically understanding the social perimeters of that engagement, we are now able to build a bridge with the scriptures to embrace a theology for times present.
We believe baptism is a key component of one’s spiritual journey, and that all believers should be baptized not to be saved, but because they are saved. Baptism is to be immersed in water as a symbolic gesture of Christ’s sacrifice. Although this action pales in comparison to the death, burial & resurrection of Christ; through baptism we aim to identify with Him by standing in the water (death), being immersed in the water (burial) and being lifted out of the water (resurrection).
We believe the Holy Spirit is given to every believer who receives Christ into their life. We believe that Christ cannot be apart of your life without the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit essentially works to provide spiritual strength to one as they embrace their spiritual journey.
