Who We Are
We are a church committed to bringing good news to Hartford and its surrounding communities. If you need healing, deliverance… transformation – we believe in MIRACLES! Our church moves through the power of the Word and Spirit, God working in our lives!!
We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. Deuteronomy 6:4 declares, “Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord.” This one true God has revealed Himself as Father, through His Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit dwelling within us.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the One true God Who came, manifest in flesh, to purchase the salvation of all mankind. His shed blood was freely given that we might be justified by His act of righteousness and not our own. There is no other Name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. It is clearly stated in the inherent Word of God, the Bible, that except a man be born again of water and the Spirit, he cannot see the Kingdom of Heaven. The Bible is clear, concerning the plan of salvation; that all men are to have faith in Jesus Christ, repent (turn from one’s sinful life, desiring change) and be baptized in Jesus’ Name for the remission of sins.
We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again become children of God and heirs with Christ. We believe in the apostolic experience as was described in the book of Acts. Acts 2:38, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
We believe in water baptism by total immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins. Through baptism, we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as can be found in Romans 6:3, “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death.”
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues, along with His accompanying gifts, is the privilege of all New Testament believers. Acts 2:4, “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
We believe the Church has been “called out” of the world to be a habitation of God through the Spirit. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to mankind. The church is one body made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. Mark 16:15-18, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to ever creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if the drink any deadly thing; it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
