The Bible is the inspired Word of God. The
Bible is a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and
conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason
(2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).
The Triune God. The triune Godhead is
comprised of three (3) separate and distinct personalities, The Father, The
Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and
function as one entity. Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is
the second member of the Godhead, co-equal with The Father and The Holy Spirit.
The Need for
Salvation through Jesus Christ. All have fallen short of the glory of
God and are in need of salvation. God has extended salvation to all mankind as
a free gift of grace that we cannot work for, but can only receive through the shed
blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:26-31; 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21) (Romans
3:24, Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:8-10).
Baptism in Water and The Lord’s Supper. Water
baptism should be observed by all who have truly believed on Christ as Savior
and Lord, representing that they have died with Jesus and that they have also
been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matt.28:19; Acts 10:47, 48;
Romans 6:4). Likewise, The Lord’s Supper is to be regularly observed in
remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice. (1 Cor. 11:24, 25, 28).
The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is
evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the
Spirit gives utterance, and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power
in public testimony and service. (Acts 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2, 6; 1:8).
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 general assembly and church of the first born, which are
written in Heaven. (Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23).
Healing. Healing of the sick is illustrated in
the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of Jesus to His
disciples. It is given as a sign, which is to follow believers. It is also a
part of Jesus’ work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit. Psalm
