1. THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of the living God; immutable, steadfast and unchangeable, as its author, God Himself.
2. THE ETERNAL GODHEAD
We believe that there is but one true and living God, maker of heaven and earth and all that is in them; the Alpha and Omega, who ever was, and is and shall be, time without end. He is holy, mighty, loving, glorious and eternally existent in three Persons, equal in divine perfection.
God the Father – whose glory is so exceeding bright that mortal man cannot look upon His face and live, but whose heart was so filled with love and pity for His lost and sinful children that He freely gave His only begotten Son to redeem and reconcile them unto Himself.
God the Son – co-existent and co-eternal with the Father, who, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary took upon Himself the form of man, bore our sins, carried our sorrows, and by the shedding of His precious blood upon the cross of Calvary, purchased redemption for all that would believe upon Him: then, bursting the bonds of death and hell rose from the grave and ascended on high leading captivity captive, that as the great mediator between God and man, He might stand at the right hand of the Father making intercession for those whom He laid down His life.
God the Holy Spirit – the third person of the Godhead, omnipotent, omnipresent, performing an inexpressible important mission upon earth, convicting of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, drawing sinners to the Savior, pleading, searching, comforting, guiding, quickening, teaching, glorifying, and enduing with power from on high those who yield to His tender ministrations, preparing them for the great day of the Lord’s appearing.
3. THE FALL OF MAN
We believe that man was created in the image of God, before whom he walked in holiness and purity, but by disobedience and transgression, he fell from purity and innocence to the depths of sin and iniquity, and that in consequence of this, all mankind are sinners, justly deserving the condemnation of a just and holy God.
4. THE PLAN OF REDEMPTION
We believe that while we were sinners Christ died for us, the Just for the unjust; freely, and by divine appointment of the Father, taking the sinners place, bearing his sins, receiving his condemnation, dying his death, fully paying his penalty, and signing with His blood, the pardon of everyone who should believe in Him; that by simple faith and acceptance of the atonement purchased on Mount Calvary, the vilest sinner may be cleansed of his iniquities and made whiter than snow.
5. SALVATION THROUGH GRACE
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly through grace; that we have no righteousness or goodness of our own with which to seek divine favor, and must come therefore, throwing ourselves upon the unfailing mercy and love of Him who bought us and washed us in His own blood, pleading the merits and the righteousness of Christ the Savior, standing upon His Word and accepting the free gift of love and pardon.
6. REPENTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE
We believe that upon sincere repentance, godly sorrow for sin, and a whole-hearted acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ, they who call upon Him may be justified by faith through His precious blood and that in place of condemnation they may have the most blessed peace, assurance and favor of God.
7. THE NEW BIRTH
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one; that the sinner is then born again in such a glorious and transforming manner that the old things have passed away and all things have become new.
8. WATER BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER
We believe that water baptism in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ, is a blessed outward sign of an inward work, reminding us that even as our Lord died upon the cross of Calvary so we reckon ourselves now dead unto sin, and the old nature nailed to the cross with Him; and that even as He was taken down from the cross and buried, so we are buried with Him by baptism unto death; that as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we should walk in newness of life.
We believe in the commemoration and observing of the Lord’s supper by the sacred use of the broken bread, a precious type of the Bread of Life, Jesus Christ, whose body was broken for us; and by the juice of the vine, a symbol which should ever remind the participant of the shed blood of the Savior who is the true vine of which His children are the branches. The serving and receiving of this blessed sacrament should be ever preceded by the most solemn heart-searching, self-examination, forgiveness and love toward all men, that none partake unworthily and drink condemnation to himself.
9. THE BABTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the incoming of the promised Comforter in mighty and glorious fullness to endue the believer with power from on high; to glorify and exalt the Lord Jesus; to give inspired utterance in witnessing of Him; to encourage the spirit of prayer and holiness; to equip the individual and the Church for practical, efficient, joyous, Spirit–filled soul winning in the fields of life. The baptism in the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for it, with the evidence of "speaking in tongues".
10. THE SPIRIT FILLED LIFE
We believe that while the Holy Spirit is as a mighty rushing wind and as tongues of living flame that can shake and set ablaze whole communities for God, He is also as a gentle dove, easily grieved by thoughts and actions dishonoring the Lord Jesus; that it is therefore possible by the sanctifying power and indwelling of the Holy Spirit to live and walk in the Spirit, under the precious blood of the Lamb; being able to live a holy life, serving the Lord.
11. DIVINE HEALING
We believe that divine healing, through the redemptive work of Christ on the cross, is the power of the Lord Jesus Christ to heal the sick and afflicted in answer to believing prayer.
12. THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent; that He will descend from Heaven with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God; and that at this hour, which no man knows before hand, the dead in Christ shall rise, then the redeemed that are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall they ever be with the Lord.
We believe that the dead shall be raised up and stand with the living before the judgement seat of God; and that then a solemn and awful separation shall take place wherein the wicked shall be judged to everlasting damnation and punishment and the righteous to life eternal.
We believe that the end of all things is at hand and that the redeemed children of God should rise and evangelize the world with the message of salvation, declaring the whole counsel of God. Jesus Christ made worldwide witness the priority and responsibility of every believer.
