What We Believe

B.I.B.L.E

“Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.”

The Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore, all doctrine, faith, hope, and all instruction for the church must be based upon, and harmonize with, the Bible. It is to be read and studied by all men everywhere, and can only be clearly understood by those who are anointed by the Holy Spirit (1 John 2:27).”… no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man but Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Peter 1:20, 21).

Scripture
We believe in the inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed accepted canon of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, the final authority for faith, theology, moral and ethical lifestyle of the Christians (1 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 1 Corinthians 2:13).

God, Himself
We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13-14).

Creation
We believe in the creation, test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis, as well as his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain divine righteousness (Genesis 1:26, 27; Romans 3:22; 5:12, 18).

The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18, Isaiah 7:14, 9:16).

The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25).

Christ’s Bodily Ascension
We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation and personal, literal and bodily coming again the second time for the Church (John 14:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

Salvation by Grace Through Faith
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews (9:12, 22; Romans 5:11).

Water Baptism
We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:37-39; 19:1-6).

Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-46; Galatians 3:14-15).

The Gifts of the Spirit
We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14, as manifested in the Early Church.

Marriage
We believe in the sanctity of marriage as established by the Holy Scriptures and that God created marriage and marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Romans 7:2-3; I Corinthians 7:10-11; Ephesians 5:22-33).

Healing
We believe in the healing of the body by Divine Power, or Divine healing in its varied aspects as practiced in the Early Church (Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:1).

Communion
We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers (1 Corinthians 11:28-32)

Eternal Life
We believe in eternal life for believers (John 5:24; 3:16) and eternal punishment for unbelievers (Mark 9:43-58; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15).
