The Scriptures Inspired
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason.
2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12
The One True God
God is three separate and distinct personalities known as the Trinity. He is God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit, eternally self-existent, self-revealed as one entity. Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and The Holy Spirit.
Man, His Fall and Redemption
Man was created good and upright.
God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness”
But man, by voluntary transgression, fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God
Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21
The Salvation of Man
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind, (Psalm 103:3, Isaiah 53:4, 5) being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. For by grace we are saved through faith.
“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart: that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation”
Romans 3:24; Ephesians 2:8, Romans 10:8-10
The Evidences of Salvation
The inward evidence, to the believer of his salvation, is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is the life of righteousness and true holiness.
“And this is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us” (1 John 3:23).
Faith and Works
Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however, our works will determine the rewards in eternity.
Acts 16:3; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; and 2 Cor. 5:10
Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures by all who have really repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
Matt. 28:19; Acts 10:47, 48; Romans 6:4
The Lord’s Supper
We are to partake of the Lord's supper just as He instructed us to do in His Holy Word.
“And when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.” (1 Cor. 11:24,25,28)
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe that we can receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which will give us power to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointment for the fulfillment of her Great Commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and Church of the first born, which are written in Heaven.
Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23
