What We Believe
Eternal (John 15:26). Our God is one, but manifested in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, being co-equal (Philippians 2:6). God the Father is greater than all, the Source of the Word (Logos) and Begetter (John 14:28, John 16:28, John 1:14). The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1, John 1:16, John 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 15:26).
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. We accept the New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine (II Timothy 3:16, I Thessalonians 2:13, II Peter 1:21).
Man, His Fall, and Redemption
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and the image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one”. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Romans 5:14, Romans 3:23,1 John 3:8).
Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God (Ephesians 2:8.9).
Baptism in the Holy Ghost
The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (Matthew 3:11, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:5, Acts 2:38-39, Acts 19:1-7, Acts 2:4).
Eternal Life and the New Birth
Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when fulfilled, produces eternal life (II Corinthians 7:10,1 John 5:12, John 3:3-5).
Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, and Colossians 2:12, Acts 8:36-39).
The following recommendation regarding the water baptism formula is adopted, to wit: “On the confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and by His authority, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen.”
Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ and is the privilege of every member of the Church today (Mark 16:18, James 5:14-15, 1 Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:17, Isaiah 53:4-5).
The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive, work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation (Hebrews 12:14, I Thessalonians 5:23, II Peter 3:18, II Corinthians 3:18, Philippians 3:12-14, I Corinthians 1:30).
The angels said, “This same Jesus…shall so come in like manner, as you have seen Him go,” His coming is imminent. When He comes, ‘The dead in Christ shall rise first, then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air (Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
Following the tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of kings, and the Lord of lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years (Revelation 20:6).
Hell and Eternal Retribution
The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the gospel or repenting. The Lake of Fire is literal. The terms ‘eternal” and “everlasting” used in describing the duration of punishment of the damned in the Lake of Fire carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of the saints in the presence of God (Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 19:20).
