What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Our Beliefs

In ESSENTIAL beliefs – we have UNITY.

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” (Ephesians 4:4-6).

In NON-ESSENTIAL beliefs – we have LIBERTY.

“Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to dispute over doubtful things . . . Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master, he stand or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand . . . So then each of us shall give account of himself to God . . . Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves” (Romans 14:1,4,12,22).

In ALL our beliefs – we show LOVE.

“And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing” (I Corinthians 13:2).

Issachar finds four of these, Salvation, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Divine Healing, and the Second Coming of Christ as Cardinal Doctrines which are essential to the church's core mission of reaching the world for Christ.


The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when man places their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin and simply asks for forgiveness of sin. Salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned by our own efforts.

Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7 /  Matthew 1:21; 27:22-66, 28:1-6 / Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32 / John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24 / Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31 / Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6 / 1 Corinthians 1:18 / 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 / Galatians 2:20; 3:13 / Ephesians 2:8-10 / Philippians 2:12-13 / Hebrews 9:24-28 / Revelation 3:20


The Holy Spirit’s presences assures us of our relationship with Christ. The Holy Spirit guides believers, and convicts people of their sin and their coming judgement. The Holy Spirit comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more Christ-like.

Genesis 1:2 / Psalm 51:11; 139:7 ff. / Isaiah 61:1-3 / Joel 2:28-32 / Mark 1:10 / Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12 / John 15:26; 16:7-14 /  Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2 / Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27 / 1 Corinthians 3:16 / Ephesians 1:13-14 / 2 Peter 1:2 / Revelation 22:17


Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.

Isaiah 53:4,5 / Matthew 8:16,17 / James 5:14-16


The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years.  This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.
