Doctrinal Statement

We believe and affirm:

  1. In one God who is the Creator of all that ever was, that is, and all that ever will be. And that He is infinitely perfect and eternally exists in three persons: Father, Word and Holy Spirit.
  2. In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, death on the cross, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
  3. That God gave His only begotten son, Jesus that all could be saved and reconciled to God, but that this salvation and reconciliation becomes effective only at one’s acceptance and confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Redeemer.
  4. That it is only by the cleansing blood of Jesus that a man experiences the forgiveness of sins. That the remission provides not only spiritual salvation for everyone who believes, but bodily healing and material prosperity as well. That all these are, if we will walk in the light of the redemption with faith in God’s Word.
  5. That the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God, with special emphasis on the New Testament and the Prophets as an infallible rule of the faith and conduct.
  6. That the true Church is composed of all those who are born-again. Through this new birth we are united together in the body of Christ. He (Jesus) is the Lord and Head of the Church.
  7. In the ministry of and the baptism with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. In the manifestation of the nine gifts of the spirit and in the five-fold ministry gifts as stated in the Scripture. In divine miracles including bodily healing and spiritual deliverance.
  8. That water baptism and the Lord’s Supper (breaking bread in communion) are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this present dispensation; however they are not to be regarded as means of salvation.
  9. Every born-again spirit-filled believer should live a holy life through the renewal of the mind with the Word of God and maintain a consistent prayer life. This should be true both in praying with understanding and in the spirit (i.e. in tongues).
  10. In the personal pre-millennial and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: “The Blessed Hope”, has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
  11. In the bodily resurrection of the dead: of the believers in Christ to everlasting joy with the Lord and of the unbelievers to eternal conscious punishment.
  12. In the institution of marriage: that marriage was instituted and ordained by God. It is honorable and the bed undefiled. Monogamy is the scriptural standard for marriage. Fornication, adultery, lesbianism, homosexuality, bestiality and all other forms of sexual immorality are forbidden in the life of a Christian.
