The Church accepts the Scripture as the revealed will of God, and adopts these Statements of fundamental Truths and Doctrine.
- The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the revealed will of God (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Pet. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).
- There is one true Godhead comprised of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All are co-equal (Matt. 28:19, 1 John 5:7). Jesus Christ, God manifested in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead (Is. 9:6; John 1:1, 14).
- Man was created in God’s image. By voluntary transgression, he fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Rom. 5:12-21).
Salvation of Man
- Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross, Jesus became sin and sickness, providing both salvation and healing for all mankind (Ps. 103:3). This salvation comes by believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with your mouth That Jesus is Lord (Rom. 3:24, 10:8-10: Eph. 2:8).
- The inward evidence to the believer is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of true holiness and love (1 John 3:23; John 13:35).
- Salvation comes by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however, our works are evidence of our faith and will determine our rewards in eternity (Acts 16:3; Rom. 10:9-10, 14:10-12; 2 Cor. 5:10; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; James 2:18).
- Baptism in water is a declaration to the world that believers have died with Christ and that they have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Rom. 6:4).
- The celebration of the Lord’s Supper by eating of the bread and drinking of the cup is a rememberance of Jesus’ sacrifice for us (1 Cor. 11:24-30).
- All believers are entitled to, should ardently expect, and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, that is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to the command of Jesus Christ. With this comes the endowment of power for life and service and the bestowal of gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8, 2:38-39, 10:44-46, 11:14-16, 15:7-9; 1 Cor. 12:1-31).
- The evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit: the full consummation baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service (Acts 1:8, 2:4, 10:44-46, 19:2-6).
- The Church is the Body of Christ. Each believer is an integral part (Eph. 1:22, 2:19-22; Heb. 12:23).
- Spiritual (John 3:3, 11; 2 Cor. 5:7-31; Rom. 10:9-10)
- Mental (2 Tim. 1:7; Rom. 12:2; Is. 26:3)
- Physical (Is. 53:4,5: Matt. 8:17; 1 Pet. 2:24)
- Financial – the belief in the scriptual principle of tithing according to the Word of God; therefore, ten percent (10%) of my income belongs to my local church (3 John 1:2; Mal. 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; 2 Cor. 9:6-10; Deut. 28:1-14).
- Social (Prov. 3:4)
- Blessed hope: Jesus is coming again to gather all His Saints to Heaven (1 Cor. 15:51-62; 1 Thes. 4:16-17; 2 Thes. 2:1).
- Those who have not personally accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead. They will burn in the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20, 20:10-15).
- The Millennial Reign of Jesus: our Lord Jesus Christ will return with His Saints from Heaven to rule and reign for one thousand years on earth as the Scripture has promised (Rom. 11:25, 27; 2 Thes. 1:7; Rev. 19:11-16, 10:1-7). After this, there will be a new heaven and a new earth (Rev. 21:1).
