Statement of Faith

The Bible is the infallible Word of God, that it is His holy and inspired Word, and that it is of supreme and final authority.

God is present, eternally in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took on Himself all our sins, died and rose again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our mediator and advocate.

All men everywhere are lost and face the judgement of God, and need to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the cross.

Christ rose from the dead and is coming soon.

In holy Christian living, we must have concern for the hurts and social needs of our fellowmen.

We must dedicate ourselves anew to the service of our Lord and to His authority over our lives.


A History of Gilgal

By following the will of God, the children of Israel entered into the “rest and promise” of God (Hebrews 3:18).

“Gilgal” was the name of the first lodging, or resting place, for the Children of Israel after they crossed over the River Jordan into the Promised Land. Two stone monuments, each consisting of 12 stones from the Jordan River and representing the twelve tribes of Israel, were erected to commemorate the crossing over, and to remind the people of God that God is almighty and keeps His promises. One was erected on the wilderness side of the Jordan, and the other erected on the Gilgal side.

The Hebrew word translation of Gilgal means “place of rolling”.  This was a call to God’s people to roll their burdens and concerns on Him and trust Him. Therefore, the result of their stay at Gilgal was a time of illumination, rest, encouragement, and great rejoicing. It was at Gilgal that the people of God gained insight and strength for the days of conquest that lay ahead. The people of God recommitted themselves to God and convenanted with one another to remain faithful, setting aside the unfaithfulness of their fathers and mothers.

Thus, Gilgal was a place of reconnecting with God and family. It was also here that the angelic Divine Commander of God’s Army appeared to Joshua to assure him that God was in command of the upcoming battles, and that together, they would be victorious. This Biblical story is found in Joshua, Chapters 3-5.
