Belivers- The Bible is our sole guide and sets forth criteria for a heaven-bound people. We belive that it sumpremely declares the "Holy Oracles" of God which our confidence in its porfound truth is essential for establishing our faith and religious practices.

The Triune Godhead

The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternal, self-existent, immutable, "I Am, "the creator of the universe and the Redeemer of mankind (Deut, 6:4; Ex 3:14; Isa 43:10-11). God has furhter revealed Himself as a Triune being but manifested in three personalities as Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Isa 48:16; Matt 28:19; Luke 3:22) God the Father is greater than all (John 14:28), the source and begetter of the Word (John 1:12; 16:28) No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him (John 1:18). The Son is the Word, God incarnate, the one begotten, and existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1, 14, 18), being co-equal with God (Phil. 2:6). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth form God the Father (John 14:26; 15:26) and God the Son (John 16:7) and is eternal (John 14:160, being promised by Christ from the Father to all cleansed believers (John 14:16,17).

  1. The Holy Trinity- The term "Trinity", while not found in the scriptures, is a term that conforms to the Scriptures. the New Testament teachings of Christ espress a relationship of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and yet the "Trinity" is incomprehensible and inexplicable (Luke 1:35, 1 Cor. 1:24; Matt. 11:25-27; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 John 1:3, 4)
  2. The Holy Trinity does not operate in modes as tahught by oneness Pentecolsals. Although God is One in His Unity and essence (Deut. 6:4) there are three distinct person, each of whom in full possession of the divine essence (Mt. 28:29; 1 Cor 13:14). The proper terminology for the Godhead is; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Chris the the eternal Son of God, is divine, and shares in the Deity of God as the second person in the Holy Trinity (Matt. 1:23; John 5:22, 23; 2 John 3; Heb. 1:1-13).

Original Sin and the Fall of Man

Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God; for God said, Let us make a man in our image, after our likeness (Gen 1:26-27). However, the first man, Adam, by his transgression fell, and thus sin entered into the world resulting in physical and spiritual death, which is seperation from God (Gen 1:26, 27; 2:17; 3:6-24; Rom. 5:12-19), For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23). As it is written there is none righteous, no not one (Rom 3:10)

The Salvation of Man

the only hope fo redemption for the humankind is through the shed blood of Christ, the Son of God (Luke 24:47). Salvation is received through repentance (i.e., a change of heart, attitude, mind towards God) and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12; Rom. 5:8-12). The spirit bear witness inwardly that we are saved (Rom 8:16), which there is definite evidence outwardly of a consecrated lif of righteousness and holiness (Eph. 4:24; Titus 2:12). We belive that eternal life in Heaven is the reward of the righteous (matt 24:13; Mark 13:13).

The Church

The true Chruch is the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:12-27), not intended to be the edifice or instituion, but the habitation of God through the Holy Spirit. Each believer, born of the spirit, in as integral part of the General Assembly and the Church of the first born which was written Heaven (Eph. 1:22-23; 2:22; Heb. 12:23)

The Ordinances of the Church

Baptism in Water

The ordinace of baptism by immersion in water is commanded in the scriptures. All who repent of their sins and believe in Christ as savior and Lord are to be baptized )Matt. 28:19; Mark 16;16). Baptism is a declaration of a good conscience towards God, a symbol of the believer's identification which Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Acts 2:41; 10:47-48; Rom. 6:4-5). we officially recognize the baptismal formula listed in Matthew 28;19 and recommend the following procedure for baptizing converts; "On the confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and by His authority, I now baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost (Spirit)."

Holy Communion (the Lords's Supper)

The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements- beard and the cup of the fruit of the vine- is a symbol that typifies our sharing the divine nature of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ (2 Pet. 1:4); a memorial of His sufferings and death (1 Cor. 11:26; Phil. 3:10); a reminder of His second coming (1 Cor. 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers till He comes!

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Every believer is entitled to, should seek for, and should expect to receive the "Baptism in the Holy Spirit" (KJV "Holy Ghost"). This experience, which is an endowment of power of Christian service was active and necessary in the early Apostolice Churhc for the fulfillment fo the ministry of the Apostle (Luke 24:29; Acts 1:4,8; 1 Cor. 12:1-31). We believe the "Spirit Baptism" is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the "New Birth" (Acts 8:12-17; 10:44-46).

The Initial Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The Baptism of all born-again believer "in the Holy Spirit{ is always witnessed y the physical initial evidence of sepaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance (Acts 2:4). Speaking in tongues is this instance (Acts 2:4) is the same essence as the "gift of tongues" (1 Cor. 12:4-10, 28) but different in purpose and use. The tongues are not learned but are a mystery, a gift, as the speaker is prompted by the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 14:2).

Divine Healing

Divine healing was clearly provided for in the Old testament (Ex. 15:23-26; Ps. 103:1-3; Isa. 53:4-5) and is an integral part of the New Testament Gospel as taught by Christ, the Apostles and the early chruch (Mat. 8:16, 17; Acts 5:16)

Tithing

We believe that all Christians (including ministers) should tithe to the storehouse (Mal. 3:10-11). Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me, but ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings (Mal. 3:8) we can rob God. Church members should tithe to the local church where they receive their spiritual food.
