What We Believe

We acknowledges and accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all-sufficient rule for faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining unity. The following statements, adopts the fundamental truths:

The Scriptures Inspired: The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the all-sufficient rule for faith and practice, and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)

The One True God: The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM,”; and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship, association and as Trinity, i.e. as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:3,11; I Corinthians 8:6; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29)

Man, His Fall and Redemption: Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in Our image, after Our likeness”, but man by voluntary transgression, fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the son of God, (Genesis 1:26-27, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21); who was born of virgin Mary, (Mathew 1:20-23; Isaiah 7:14, 9:6) crucified and died for the sins of the whole world, buried and rose again, I Corinthians 15:3- 4,13-14; I John 2:2; He brews 10:10); and ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.(Hebrews 10:12-13)

The Salvation of Man: (a) Condition to Salvation: The grace of God, which brings salvation hath appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, and being justified by grace through faith, he becomes heir of God according to the hope of eternal life.(Titus 2:11;3:5-7 ; Romans 10:13-15; John 3:5-9)

(b) The Evidences of Salvation: The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. (Romans 8:16) The outward evidence to all people is a life of righteousness and true holiness.(I Peter 1:15-16)

Baptism in Water: The ordinance of Baptism by burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures, by all that have really repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have risen with Him to walk in newness of life.(Matthew 28:19;Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper: The Ordinance of Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements – bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol of expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ, a memorial of His suffering and death, and a prophesy of His second coming, and is enjoyed by all believers “until He comes”(John 6:48,51,53-57; Luke 22:19-20; I Corinthians 11:23-26)

The Promise of the Father: All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ, (Acts 2:4-5). This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.(Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; I Corinthians 12:1-31) This wonderful experience is distinct and subsequent to the new birth.(Acts 2:38. 10:44-46)

The Evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost: The full Consummation of the baptism of the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and by the manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service. (Acts 1:8, 2:4,17, 10:44-46, 19:2,6; I Corinthians 12:10, 14:2-5)

Entire Sanctification: The Scriptures teaches a life of holiness, without which none shall see the Lord. By the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to obey the command. “Be ye holy, as I am Holy”. Entire sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should earnestly be pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word. (I John 3:3; Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15-16; I Thessalonians 5:23-24)

The Church: 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 Assembly and Church of the First born, which are written, in heaven. (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)

The Ministry and Evangelism: A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a two-fold purpose: (1) the evangelization of the word. (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19) (2) the edifying of the body of Christ. (Mark 16:15; Ephesians 4:11-13) Divine Healing: Deliverance from sickness is provided in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers. (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18) The Second Coming of Jesus Christ – the Blessed Hope: The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ, and their translated together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, is imminent and is the blessed hope of the Church. (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 18; Titus 2.13) The Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ: The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from Heaven, the salvation of Israel, and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth is the Scriptural promise and the world’s hope. (II Thessalonians 1:7; Revelation 19:11-16, 20:1-7)

The Lake of Fire: The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophets and whosoever is not found written in the book of Life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake, which burnet with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (Revelation 19:20, 20:10-15) The New Heavens and New Earth: We, “according to His promise, look for the new heavens and a new earth where in dwelled righteousness”. (II Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1)
