“Give me 2 1/2 hours a week and your life will be changed.” HLP II


We believe in one God who eternally exists in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary.

We believe that He was crucified, dead, and buried.

We believe that Jesus Christ paid the full penalty for our sins by His dying and resurrection. All that we need to do is to confess Him as Savior and repent of our sins.

We believe that it’s by grace and faith, and not by our works that we are saved.

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells believers’ hearts to empower the Church to communicate the gospel throughout the whole earth.

We believe that the Holy Bible is inspired by God and it is the inerrant word of God. It is the final authority in matters of faith and practice.

We believe in the unity of the Body of Christ: We are all brothers and sisters through Him who loves us.


Generosity is being blessed & being able to be a blessing
