Word of God
The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the infallible, absolute, and eternal authority; superior to all “new revelation”, conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason.
There is only one God, and He has revealed Himself in scripture as both One and Triune. He is eternally self-existent, self-sufficient, and self-revealed as God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, distinguishable but indivisible.
Fall of Man
Man was created in the perfect image of God, but through voluntary disobedience sinned against God. Through that disobedience all of humanity became sinful in nature and the only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ.
Salvation is a free gift of God, completed on the cross through the death of His Son Jesus Christ. Salvation is received through repentance, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and acceptance of Him as your personal Savior and the Lord of your life. Salvation is an act of one's free will in response to the Love of God. The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Ro. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a changed life unto holiness.
WATER BAPTISM and COMMUNION
Water Baptism, as commanded in the scriptures, should be observed by all who have repented of their sin and believe on Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. It is the believer’s public identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection to new life.
The Lord’s Supper (Communion) is a memorial to and a symbol of our sharing in Christ’s sufferings, His death, and the prophecy of His second coming. It is enjoined to all believers “until He comes”
All believers should earnestly seek the Promise of God, which is the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire. Holy Spirit baptism empowers you to be a witness through spiritual gifts and power, and enables you to live a life of holiness and service to the Lord. This baptism is a distinctive experience that follows salvation with the affirmation of speaking in tongues.
As we walk in obedience to the Word of God and the Holy Spirit by separating ourselves to the will of God, we are transformed into the image of Christ displaying His Character and Holiness.
The Church is God’s chosen way to reveal Himself and His Son to the world. The true church consists of those who are wholly devoted disciples of Christ, whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. They are the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the great commission (making disciples of all nations). Each believer is an integral part of the Church and has a purpose and destiny to fulfill.
