We believe in one God, manifesting Himself in three Persons as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Gen. 1:26; Deut. 6:4; 1 Kg. 8:60; Matt. 28:19; Mark 12:29; John 14:26; 15:26; Acts 2:33; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 1:3-14; 4:4-6; Jas. 2:19; 1 Pet. 1:2; 3:18; 1 John 5:7; Rev. 1:4-5
We believe the Bible to be verbally inspired, the inerrant Word of God, and, when rightly interpreted by the Holy Spirit, to be the infallible rule of faith and practice.
Psa. 45:1; Ezek. 1:3; Matt. 24:35; Luke 24:27; Rom. 15:4; 1 Cor. 10:11; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21
We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and sacrificial death to save us from our sins, and His resurrection and ascension to heaven.
Mt.1:21, 23, John 1:1-2, 14, 3:16, Acts 1:2-3, 9, 2:22
We believe in personal regeneration, that one must be born again to see and enter the Kingdom of God. This initial salvation of sinners is by grace through faith in the perfect and all-sufficient finished work of Jesus Christ. The ground of this justification by faith is the blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God
John 1:29; 3:1-8; 17:4; 19:30; Acts 13:38-39; Rom. 5:1-2; Eph. 2:8-9; Rev. 13:8
We believe that this conversion experience should be followed with water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and the circumcision of the heart. The old man is put to death and the new creation man arises to walk in newness of life. Blood, water (baptism) , and Spirit constitute the three witnesses that initiate the New Covenant.
Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Rom. 2:28; 6:1-14; Col. 2:11-12; 1 John 5:8
We believe that the Pentecostal experience of the Holy Ghost Baptism is separate from and subsequent to conversion. We believe that the initial evidence of this Baptism to be the historical and experiential distinctive of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. The fruit of a genuine Pentecost is the writing of the law of God upon one’s heart.
Mark 16:17; Acts 1:4-8; 2:1-4; 10:44-46; 19:6; Gal. 3:14-15; 4:6; Eph. 5:17-18; Col. 1:27; and Ex. 19:1 with Lev. 23:15-22
We believe in the full restoration of the five-fold ascension-gift ministries that Jesus Christ sent to equip and mature the Church: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. Their mission is to produce a perfect, full-grown, many-membered new creation Man in the earth, the manifestation or unveiling of the nature and ministry of Jesus Christ in His brethren
Rom. 8:19-23; 1 Cor. 13:8-13; Eph. 2:20; 3:1-5; 4:11-16; Col.1:25-29
We believe that the Kingdom of God is a present reality and will expand until the knowledge of His Lordship covers the earth, The Government of God is the purpose of God; it is the extension of His rule and dominion in the earth and the universe. The Church, universal and local, mystical and tangible, invisible and visible, is the instrument through which that purpose is to be realized
Gen. 1:26-28; Dan. 2:44-45; 7:27; Hab. 2:14; Mark 1:14-15; Rom 14:17; Eph. 3:21; Heb. 12:25-29; Rev. 1:6; 5:10; 11:15; 19:1-6
