Scripture Inspired

The Bible is the inspired Word of God: a revelation from God to humankind, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Tim 3:15-18; 1 Pet 2:2).

True and Living God

We believe in one God, manifested as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deut 6:4; 1 Pet 1:2).

Man, His Fall and Redemption

Man was created good and upright for 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 (Gen 1:26-31; 3:1-7; Rom 5:12-21).

Salvation of Man

The grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, and being justified by hope of eternal life (Luke 24:47; Rom 10:13-15; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7).

Evidence of Salvation

The “inward” evidence to the believer of His salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom 8:16). The “outward” evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness.


All persons who turn from their sins and put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ receive a new birth by which their life is regenerated through the power of God (John 3:3-6; Titus 3:5). This gives them power to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

Baptism in Water

The ordinance of Baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scripture, by all who have really repented and in their hearts have truly believed in Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they have the body washed in pure water as an outward symbol of cleansing, thus they declare to the world that have died with Jesus and have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matt 28:19; Acts 2:38; 10:47-48; 20:21; Rom 6:4; Heb 10:22)


All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect, and earnestly seek, the promise of the baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes a deeper spiritual life and service, the bestowment of the gifts, and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4; 8 and 1 Cor 12:1-31).

Evidence of Baptism of the Holy Ghost

The Baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is witnessed by the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the spirit of God gives them utterance (Acts 2:4). The speaking in tongues in this instance is the same in essence as the gift of tongues (1 Cor 12:4-10, 28), but different in purpose and use.

Lord’s Supper

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and fruit of the vine, symbolizes an expression of our sharing of the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Pet 1:4). It memorializes His suffering and death (1 Cor 11:26), highlights prophecy of His second coming (1 Cor 11:26), and enjoins all believers “until He comes.”


The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the Church of the First-born, which is written in heaven (Eph 1:22-23; 2:22; Heb 12:23).

Ministry and Evangelism

A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a two-fold purpose: The evangelization of the world and edifying of the Body of Christ (Mark 16:15-20; Eph 4:11-13).

Divine Healing

Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers  (Isa 53:4; 5 and Matt 8:16-17).

Blessed Hope

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church (Rom 8:23; 1 Cor 15:51; 1 Thess 4:16, 17; Titus 2:13).

Millennial Reign of Jesus

The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of national Israel, and the Millennial reign of Christ on earth is the scriptural promise and the world’s hope (Rom 11:26; 2 Thess 1:17, 27; Rev. 19:11-14; 20:1-7).

Lake of Fire

The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15).

New Heavens and New Earth

We, “according to His promise, look for new heavens, and a new earth wherein dwells righteousness” (2 Pet 3:13; Rev 21; 22).
