We Recognize

Finished Work Theology

We believe that Finished Work Theology (FWT) is the all-encompassing, completed work of Christ. He died for sin, was buried and rose again for the redemption of man and all creation.  It was God, personally present in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself. As a result, He brought the old covenant of law to a close while mediating the new and better covenant that is established on grace – unmerited favor (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:18-21; Hebrews 8:6).

Through these words,  “It is finished,” the alpha and omega work of God in salvation is perfected (John 19:30). When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. All FWT interpretation and compilation must be governed and interpreted by the laws of Christ (Matthew 22:37-40). The action and outcome of FWT is to reciprocate all the manifestations of Christ and His cross as a portrayal of the love of God to man (John 3:16; 1 John 3:16).  His love is the litmus test for all interpretations.

We Believe


In ONe GoD,

who exists in three Persons—the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy and just.


The bible is God's Word.

It is inspired and accurate. It is our perfect guide in all matters of life.


That sin has separated us

all from God, and that only through Jesus Christ can we be reconciled to God.


That Jesus Christ is both God and Man.

He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took all our sins upon Himself, died and rose again. Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.


That salvation is the gift of God to man.

This gift is affected by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and it results in works pleasing to God.


That water baptism

is a symbol of the cleansing power of God and a testimony of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.


That the Holy Spirit is our Comforter.

He guides us in all areas of our lives. He also blesses us with spiritual gifts and empowers us to yield the fruits of the Spirit.


That the Holy Communion

is a celebration of Jesus’ death and our remembrance of Him.


That God wants to transform us,

heal, and provide for us so that we can live blessed and victorious lives that will impact and help others.


That we are called

to preach the gospel to all nations.


That our Lord Jesus Christ

is coming back again just as He promised.
