16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
JUST A CLOSER WALK WITH JESUS
The following biblical teachings sustain and guide the believer’s growing maturity and perseverance in their relationship with Christ.
Salvation is available for every person (Luke 19:10; John 3:16; Romans 10:11–13; Hebrews 2:9; 2 Peter 3:9; Revelation 22:17). Salvation is received and assured through faith (Romans 3:28; Galatians 2:20–21; Ephesians 2:8; Philippians 3:9; Hebrews 10:38; 1 Peter 1:5).
Salvation is an ongoing conflict with temptation and sin (Romans 1:32; 1 Corinthians 3:1–3, 5–8; 5:9–13; Hebrews 3:12–14; 12:1; 1 John 1:8; 3:8).
The believer’s salvation may be forfeited or abandoned by willfully turning away from Christ (John 17:12; 1 Timothy 4:1; 5:12, 15; Hebrews 6:4–6, 10:26–27, 38; 2 Peter 2:20; 1 John 5:16).
OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED
The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:15-17 [KJV/NIV] 1 Thessalonians 2:13 [KJV/NIV] 2 Peter 1:21 [KJV/NIV]
THE ONE TRUE GOD
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Deuteronomy 6:4 [KJV/NIV] Isaiah 43:10,11 [KJV/NIV] Matthew 28:19 [KJV/NIV] Luke 3:22 [KJV/NIV]
THE DEITY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:
His virgin birth, Matthew 1:23 [KJV/NIV] Luke 1:31 [KJV/NIV] Luke 1:35 [KJV/NIV]
His sinless life, Hebrews 7:26 [KJV/NIV] 1 Peter 2:22 [KJV/NIV]
His miracles, Acts 2:22 [KJV/NIV] Acts 10:38 [KJV/NIV]
His substitutionary work on the cross, 1 Corinthians 15:3 [KJV/NIV] 2 Corinthians 5:21 [KJV/NIV]
His bodily resurrection from the dead, Matthew 28:6 [KJV/NIV] Luke 24:39 [KJV/NIV] 1 Corinthians 15:4 [KJV/NIV]

THE FALL OF MAN
Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness." However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Genesis 1:26,27 [KJV/NIV] Genesis 2:17 [KJV/NIV] Genesis 3:6 [KJV/NIV] Romans 5:12-19 [KJV/NIV] (TOP)
THE SALVATION OF MAN
Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. Conditions to Salvation Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. Luke 24:47 [KJV/NIV] John 3:3 [KJV/NIV] Romans 10:13-15 [KJV/NIV] Ephesians 2:8 [KJV/NIV] Titus 2:11 [KJV/NIV] Titus 3:5-7 [KJV/NIV] The Evidence of Salvation The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. Romans 8:16 [KJV/NIV] The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. Ephesians 4:24 [KJV/NIV] Titus 2:12 [KJV/NIV]
