WHAT WE BELIEVE
..The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written word of God.
..There is one God, externally existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Holy Spirit.
..In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to power and glory.
..That for the salvation of the lost and sinful mankind, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relation with God.

IN LIFTING HANDS
So I will bless Thee as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Thy name Psalms 64:4)
Therefore, I want all men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissention. I Timothy 2:9
IN ANOINTING IN PRAYER
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. James 5:14, 15
IN SPEAKING IN TONGUES AND INTERPRETATIONS
This is an expression of the gifts of the Holy Spirit given for spiritual uplifting
I Corinthians 12:8-14
At times there will only be a speaking forth in our known language. The Bible calls this prophecy and such inspired utterances are also meant of edification. I Corinthians 14:3 says, But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation.
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16
IN THE GIVING OF TITHES AND OFFERINGS
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test me now in this, says the Lord of Hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. Malachi 3:10
