Statement of Faith

Fundamental Doctrine
Our Doctrine in the Word of God as taught and revealed by the Holy Ghost. (John 14:26; I Corinthians 2:9-13). “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for Doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works”. (II Timothy 3:16, 17)

God’s Standard of Salvation
We earnestly contend for God’s standard of Salvation. In the Word of God, we can find nothing short of a Holy Spirit filled life with signs following as on the day of Pentecost. (Mark 16:16, 17; Acts 2:4; 8:14-17, 18; 10:44, 48; 19:1-6. See also Romans 12:1, 2; Hebrews 12:14; Matthew 5:48; I Peter 1:15, 16) The New Birth (being born again)includes a genuine repentance, water baptism in Jesus’ name, and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, evidenced by the speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance as the initial evidence thereof.

Repentance and Remission of Sins
The only grounds upon which God will accept a sinner is repentance from the heart for the sins that he has committed. “A broken and a contrite heart, He will not despise.” (Psalms 51:17) Jesus said that repentance and remission of sins, should be preached in His name in all nations, beginning at Jerusalem (Luke 24) and Peter fulfilled this command on the day of Pentecost (See also Acts 2).

Living a Sanctified Life
We believe that in order to escape the judgment of God and to have the hope of enjoying the glory of the eternal, one must be thoroughly saved from his sins, wholly sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost. And that a wholly sanctified life is the only true standard of Christian life. (Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15-17)

The Coming of Christ
That Jesus is coming to earth again in person is a doctrine clearly set forth in apostolic times. Jesus taught it. The Apostles preached it and the saints accepted. (See Matthew 24:1; Acts 1:11; 3:19, 21; I Corinthians 1:7, 8; 11:26; Philippians 3:20, 21; I Thessalonians 4:14-17; Titus 2:13, 14)

The Godhead
We fully believe the mystery of the Godhead. We believe that Jesus was both human and divine, and further, that the Godhead be understood to mean all of the fullness of God. (Colossians 1:19; 2:9) We believe that Jesus was Mary’s son and Mary’s God, Creator and creature, God manifest in the flesh; that that the flesh of Jesus was the same as ours, with the exception that it had no sin; that Jesus was the Eternal Father made visible, apart from whom there is no God. We believe that at the final consummation of all things there will be only God, and that will be our Lord Jesus Christ.
