The Holy Bible
We believe the Bible consists of 66 books of the Old and New Testament, is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, inerrant and infallible in its original writing, superior to conscience and reason, and the supreme and final authority for faith, conduct, and practices.
(Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:15-17)
The One True God
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM”, and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principle of relationship and association of the Trinity as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29; Matthew 3:16-17; John 14:16-17)
Baptism in Water
Baptism is a burial with Christ and should be observed as commanded in the Scripture by all who have really repented in their hearts, and have truly believed in Christ as Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in the newness of life. We baptize by immersion in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47, 8:36,39; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2;12)
The Lord’s Supper
The Lord’s Supper consists of the elements, the bread and the wine, is a memorial of His suffering and death and a prophecy of His second coming, and is observed by all baptized believers until Jesus Christ returns. (Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 10:16, 17, 11:23-32)
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
The full consummation of the baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service.
(Acts 1:8; 2: 4, 42, 43, 10:44-46)
A divinely called and spiritually ordained ministry had been provided by our Lord for a twofold purpose:- The evangelization of the world and the edification of the body of Christ. (Mark 16:15-20; Ephesians 4:11-13)
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 General Assembly and Church of the firstborn, whose names are written in Heaven.
(Ephesians 1:22, 23; 2:19-22, Hebrews 12:23)
The Second Coming and Millennial Reign of Jesus
The premillennial Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ together with the translation of those who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, is imminent and is the blessed hope of the Church. The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from Heaven, the salvation of all Israel, and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth is the scriptural promise and the world’s hope.
(Romans 8:23; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Titus 2:13, Romans 11:25-27; 2 Thessalonians 1:7; Revelation 19:11-16, 20:1-7)
