The Scriptures Inspired.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to men, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and standard to conscience and reason (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Pet. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12, Deuteronomy 4, Revelations 22:18-19).
Man’s Fall and Redemption.
Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in our image and after our likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31; Gen. 3:17; Ro. 5:12-21).
The Salvation of Man.
(A) Conditions of Salvation. The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Ro. 10:13-15; Luke 24:47). (B) Evidence of Salvation. The inward evidence to the believer of his/her salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Ro. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of holiness (1 Thess. 4:7, 2Tim.1:9).
Baptism in Water.
The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed (as commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they have also been released to walk with Him in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Ro. 6:4).
Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
All believers should ardently expect and earnestly seek the Promise of the Father, which is the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes the infilling of power for life and service, and the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-31). This experience maybe distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the New Birth (Acts 2:38; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9).
By the power of the Holy Spirit we strive to obey the command, “Be ye holy, for I am holy.” Sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word (Heb. 12:14; 1 Pet. 1:15, 16; 1 Thess. 5:23, 24; 1 John 2:6).
The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the Church, which is written in heaven. (Ephesians 1:22, 23; 2:22;Hebrews 12:23)
Divinely called and Scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a three-fold purpose: (1) The evangelization of the world, (2) The edification of the Body of Christ ,and (3) Perfecting of the Saints(Mark 16:15, 20; Eph. 4:11-13).
Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement of Christ and is the privilege of all believers (Isa. 53:4, 5; Matt. 8:16, 17; Mark 16:18; John 5:14).
The 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 Lord, is imminent and is the blessed hope of the church (1 Thess. 4:16; Ro. 6:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor. 15:51,52).
We believe in the eternal, invisible God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
(Colossians 1:15; 1Timothy 1:17,1Timothy 6:16, Revelations 1:6, 1Peter 1:3, Ephesians 1:2-3; Ephesians 3:14; 2Corinthians 1:3)
The 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 the earth are Scriptural promises and our hope (2 Thess. 1:7; Rev. 19:1l-16; Ro. 11:25; Rev. 20:l-7, Rev 2:26-27, Rev 5:10, Rev 12:5).
The New Heaven and New Earth.
We, as promised in the Scriptures, look for a new heaven and a new earth wherein righteousness dwells (2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21: l).
