What We Believe

Statement of Fundamental Truths

The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice.

This Statement of Fundamental Truths is intended simply as a basic of fellowship among us (i.e. that we all speak the same thing, 1 Corinthians 1:10; Acts 2:42). The phraseology employed in this Statement is not inspired or contended for, but the truth set forth is held to be essential to a full-gospel ministry. No claim is made that it contains all Biblical truth, only that it covers our need as to these fundamental doctrines.

We Believe The Holy Bible, consisting of both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired revelation of God to man. Therefore, the Scriptures are the infallible, authoritative rule for all matters of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:21)

We Believe The One True God, who is eternally self-existent, is the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. Almighty God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. God exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who possesses all the attributes of God and are the One True God. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11)

We Believe in The Deity of Jesus Christ who was the Son of God (Luke 3:22) or God manifest in the flesh. The Scriptures declare:
(a) His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35)
(b) His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; I Peter 2:22)
(c) His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38)
(d) His redemptive work (I Corinthians 15:3; II Corinthians 5:21)
(e) His bodily resurrection (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; I Corinthians 15:4)
(f) His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Phil. 2:9-11; Heb. 1:3)

We Believe in The Spiritual New Birth of repentant sinners who, having faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His resurrection, receive the regenerative work of the Holy Spirit. This experience, provided by the vicarious death and redemptive work of the blood of Jesus Christ, brings a person into a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 3:3-8; Romans 3:24-25; 10:9-13)

We Believe The Holy Spirit is the Third Person in the Godhead and that He indwells everyone who calls on the Name of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. (Romans 8:9-11; 15; 1 Corinthians 12:3) The Holy Spirit is the Anointing ( 1 John 2:20,27) that is promised to all believers in Christ, imparting to them spiritual gifts (charisma), (Romans 12:4-8) to edify the Body of Christ and to equip for Christian service. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; I Corinthians 12:12-31)

The Holy Spirit daily in fills believers as they seek the Lord and yield to Him resulting in the fruit of the Spirit which is Christ likeness. (Ephesians 5:18-21; Galatians 5:22-24) The Holy Spirit Baptism, as experienced in the early Christian Church is promised to all believers. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the new birth and enables the believer to receive a spiritual language (glossalalia) for personal edification and prayer. This language in a believer is the initial physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:4; 8:12-17; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9; 19:6; 1 Corinthians 14:2-5, 14-15, 39-40) The Baptism in the Holy Spirit opens a believer to the manifestation of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:7-11)

We Believe The Church of Jesus Christ is the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Each believer, having been born of the Spirit, is a valuable part of the Body of Christ. We further believe in a called and ordained five-fold ministry for the purpose of the evangelization of the world and the edifying of the Body of Christ. (Mark 16:15-20; Ephesians 4:11-13)

We Believe in The Second Coming of Christ to receive the Church unto Himself and to rule and reign forever. The return of Jesus Christ is imminent and will precede His reign upon the earth and the final judgments. Afterward there will be a New Heaven and New Earth. (John 14:1-3; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 11:15; 20:12-13; 21:1)
