The Word of God
We teach the Bible is God's written revelation to man, and therefore the 66 books of the Bible given to us by the Holy Spirit constitute the complete word of God. We teach that the Word of God is infallible and inspired by being absolutely inerrant in the original documents and God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
We believe one must be baptized with the baptism of the Holy Ghost (born of the Spirit) to inherit eternal life in accordance with St. John 3:5-6.
We teach that there is but one living and true God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah45: 5-7; I Corinthians 8:4), an infinite, all-knowing Spirit (St. John 4:24), perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14) each equally deserving worship and obedience.
God the Son
We believe all of the fullness of the Godhead bodily, dwells in Christ Jesus our Lord. Colossians 2:9
We teach that Jesus Christ represents humanity and deity in indivisible oneness (Micah 5:2; St. John 5:23; 14:9-10; Colossians 2:9)
We teach our Lord Jesus Christ was virgin born. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23, 25; Luke 1:26-35) He was God incarnate (John1: 1, 14); and the purpose of the incarnation was to reveal God, redeem men, and rule over God's kingdom (Isaih9: 6; John 1:29; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 7:25-26; I Peter 1:18-19)
We teach our Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through the shedding of His blood and sacrificial death on the cross (John 10:15; Romans 3:24-25; 5:8; 1 Peter 2:24)
We teach on the basis of the efficacy of the death of our Lord Jesus Christ, the believing sinner is freed from the punishment, power, penalty and one day the very presence of sin and he is declared righteous, given eternal life, and adopted into the family of God (Romans 3:25; 5:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:14-15; I Peter 2; 24; 3:18)
We teach that in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave. God confirmed the deity of His Son and gave proof that God has accepted the atoning work of Christ on the cross. Jesus' bodily resurrection is also the guarantee of a future resurrection life for all believers (John 5:25-29; 14:19; Romans 1:4; 4:25; 6:5-10; I Corinthians 15:20, 23)
We teach Jesus Christ will return to receive the church, which is His Body, unto Himself at the rapture and returning with His church in glory will establish His millennial kingdom on earth. (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20)
God the Holy Spirit
We teach the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, eternal, possessing all the attributes of personality and deity, including intellect (Corinthians 2:10-13), emotions (Ephesians 4:30), will (1 Corinthians 12:11), eternally (Hebrews 9:14) omnipresence (Psalm 139:7-10), omniscience (Isaiah 40:13-14), omnipotence (Romans 15:13) and truthfulness (St. John 16:13)
We teach the work of the Holy Spirit in this age began at Pentecost, when He came from the Father as promised by Christ (St. John 14:16-17; 15:26) to initiate and complete the building of the Body of Christ, which is His church (I Corinthians 12:13). The broad scope of His divine activity includes convicting the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ and transforming believers into the image of Christ (St. John 16:7-9; Acts 1:5; 2-4; Romans 8:29; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 2:22)
We teach the Holy Spirit is the supernatural and sovereign Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the Body of Christ (I Corinthians 12:13). The Holy Spirit also indwells, sanctifies, instructs, empowers them for and seals them unto the day of redemption (Roams 8:9; 2 Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 1:13).
We teach the Holy Spirit is the divine Teacher, who guided the apostles and prophets into all truth as they committed to writing God's revelation, the Bible (2 Peter 1:19-21). Every believer possesses the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit from the moment of salvation, and it is the duty of all those born of the Spirit to be filled with (controlled by) the Spirit (St. John 16:13; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 5:18; I John 2:20, 27).
We teach the Holy Spirit administers spiritual gifts to the church. We embrace the full operation and manifestation of the gifts of the Sprit as recorded in (I Corinthians Chapter 12).
We teach salvation is wholly of God by grace on the basis of the redemption of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works. (St. John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; I Peter 1: 18-10)
Baptism and Communion
We teach two ordinances have been committed to the local church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. Christian baptism by immersion (Acts 2:38-42; Acts 8:36-39) is the outward demonstration and beautiful testimony of a believer showing forth his faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, and his union with Him in death to sin and resurrection to a new life (Romans 6:1-11). It is also a sign of fellowship and identification with the visible Body of Christ (Acts 2:41-42)
We teach the Lord's Supper is the commemoration and proclamation of His death until He come, and should be always preceded by self-examination (I Corinthians 11:28-32) We teach the elemis of Communion are only representative of the flesh and blood of Christ, participation in the Lord's Supper is symbolic representation of the actual communion with the risen Christ, who indwells every believer, and so is present, fellowshipping with His people (I Corinthians 10:16)
