1. The Scriptures Inspired
The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testament, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (2 Tim 8:15-17, 1 Thes 2:18, 2 Pet 1:21).
2. The One True God
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self existent, "I Am," the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of man kind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association of Father, Son and Holy Ghost (Deut 6:4, Isa 48:10-11, Matt 28:19, Luke 8:22). The terms "Trinity" and "Persons", as related to the Godhead, while not found in the Scriptures, are words in harmony with Scripture, whereby we may convey to others our immediate understanding of the doctrine of Christ respecting the Being of God, as distinguished from "gods many and lords many." We therefore speak with propriety of the Lord our God, who is One Lord, as a trinity or as one Being of three persons, and still be absolutely scriptural (examples; Matt 28:19, 2 Cor 18:14, John 14:16-17).
3. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:
4. The Fall of Man
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through man's transgression and fall, sin came into the world, "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God." "As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one:" now by man's transgression he fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is seperation from God (Gen 1:26-27, 2:17, 8:6, Rom 8:9-10, 28, 5:12-19).
5. The Salvation of Man
Jesus Christ was manifested to undo the works of the devil. Man's only hope of redemption is throught the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God (1 John 8:8, Heb 9:22).
6. Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the scriptures. All who repent and believe on Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian's identification with Christ, thus they declare to the world that they have been buried with Christ by baptism and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matt 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 8:86-88, 10:47-48, Rom 6:4, Col 2:12).
7. Holy Communion
We partake of the Lord's supper to show the Lord's death till he comes. The bread symbolizes the Lord's broken body which was broken for us. The cup symbolizes the new covenant in His blood which provides us forgiveness and relationship with God. In partaking of such we need to judge ourselves and realize that through what Christ has done we have salvation, we are guilty of the body and blood of the Lord (Isa 58:5, 1 Cor 11:28-81).
8. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
All believers are entitled to, and should earnestly expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father. The baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church. With the baptism of the Holy Ghost comes the enduement of power for service, and the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Mark 16:20, Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4, 8, 8:15-17, 19:1-6, 1 Cor 12:1-11).
The bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing unto the consummation of salvation (Rom 12:1-2, 1 Cor 1:80, 2 Cor 8:18, 1 Thes 5:28, Heb 12:14, 1 Pet 1:15-16, 2 Pet 8:18).
10. The Church and its Mission
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 General Assembly and Church of the Firstborn, which are written in heaven (Eph 1:22-28, 2:19-22, Heb 12:28).
11. The Ministry
A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the threefold purpose of leading the Church in the:
12. Divine Healing
We believe in divine healing as a provision of God to all men. Healing for the physical ills of the human body are wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and/or by the laying on of hands. The latter not being absolutely necessary to be healed, but not to be neglected altogether (Jam 5:15-18, Mark 5:28, Acts 5:15, 28:8).
13. The Blessed Hope
The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those who are alive and remail unto the coming of the Lord, is imminent and is the blessed hope of the church (1 Cor 15:51-54, 1 Thes 4:16-18).
14. The Millennial Reign of Christ
This event will commence with the return of Christ with His saints to reign on the earth for one thousand years (Matt 24:80, Rev 1:7, 19:11-15, 20:1-6) The millennial reign will bring the establishment of universal peace (Isa 11:1-10, Psa 72:1-8, Mic 4:4-8).
15. The Final Judgement
The one who physically dies in his sin without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the gospel or for repentance. There will be a final judgement in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the book of life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone. This is the second death. The lake of fire is literal, the terms "eternal" and "everlasting" used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the lake of fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in noting the duration of joy and ecstasy of the saints in the presence of God (Matt 25:46, Mark 9:48-84, Rev 19:20, 20:11-15, 21:8).
16. The New Heavens and the New Earth
We "according to His promise look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness" (2 Pet 8:18, Rev 21:1).
