The Holy Scriptures
We believe that the Bible (Old and New Testaments) is the inspired, infallible Word of God, revealed to humankind. It is the final authority on all rules of faith and conduct, and supercedes conscience and reason (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, born of the Virgin Mary, that He died on the cross to redeem mankind from sins, was raised from the dead and now sits at the right hand of the Father (Romans 5:6-9, Luke 2:11, Matt. 1:20-23, Act 2:32-33).
We believe that Jesus Christ, by His sufferings, by the shedding of His own blood, and by His death on the cross, made a full atonement for all human sin. This Sacrificial Atonement is the only ground of salvation. It is sufficient for every individual of Adam’s race (Isaiah 53:5-6, 11; Mark 10:45; Luke 24:46-48; John 1:29; 3:14-17; Acts 4:10-12; Romans 3:21-26; 4:17-25; 5:6; 1 Corinthians 6:20; 2 Corinthians 5:14-21; Galatians 1:3-4; 3:13-14; Colossians 1:19-23; 1 Timothy 2:3-6; Titus 2:11-14; Hebrews 2:9; 9:11-14; 13:12; 1 Peter 1:18-21; 2:19-25; 1 John 2:1-2).
We believe that we are saved by grace through faith. It is a gift from God. We receive salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is available to all who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, to those who believe in His name, He gave the right to become children of God. We become coheirs of God’s kingdom with Christ according to the hope of eternal life (John 1:12, 3:36, 5:24; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:1-10; Titus 3:5-7).
We believe that Salvation means to be free from the law of sin and death. Sozo is the Greek word we use for Salvation. When we received salvation through the work of Christ we were saved from death and made whole. Jesus has set us free spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally and financially. As we live a new life in Christ we follow His biblical principles to be free and made whole in covenant entirety. Therefore as we honor God’s word to give Him all of ourselves including our finances; the first of all our financial increase (Tithe) and over above our tithe (offering) this act of obedience must produce financial provision, protection and prosperity. God is not a man that He should lie or the son of man that He should repent. (Malachi 3:10-11, Proverbs 3:10-11, Luke 6:38)
We believe the ordinance of water baptism for all who have repented and in their hearts have truly believed in Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4).
Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit and their operations in the work of the ministry for the common good of the kingdom of Christ. We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit can happen at conversion or thereafter and is followed by the evidence of tongues (Luke 24:29; Acts 1:4; 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Acts 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9 & 19:1-6).
We believe that God in His sovereignty can use any means according to His Will to heal His children (Matthew 4:23-24; 9:18-35; John 4:46-54; Acts 5:12-16; 9:32-42; 14:8-15;
2 Corinthians 12:7-10; James 5:13-16).
We believe in future judgment in which every person shall appear before God to be judged according to his or her deeds in this life and whether they have received or denied the Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:12; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; Romans 8:23).
