We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God. (2 Tim 3: 16-17). And that it is alive and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, it pierces and divides our souls (minds and emotions) from our spirits (eternal-beings), and it discerns the thoughts and intentions of our hearts. (See Heb 4:12.)
We believe in God, the Father, (see Is 64:8), God, the Son, Jesus Christ, (see John 1:1), and God, the Holy Spirit, (see 1 Co 2:10), and that they are one. (See 1 John 5:7.)
We believe that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Gen 1:1). And everything He created was very good, (see Gen 1:31).
We believe we are created in the mirror image of God (see Gen 1:26), a little lower than Elohim (see Ps 8:5), and that He gave us authority and dominion over this earth (see Gen 1:27-28, Ps 8:6). But by our willful disobedience, our sin separates us from God (see Rom 5:12), we deserve death and eternal damnation, but Jesus took our place, (see IS 53: 3-5), and by His grace, and not by good works, we can receive forgiveness from all our sin by the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ. (See Eph 1:7). He became sin for us, so that we could be made righteous (see 2 Co 5:21), and He became the curse so that we could be free from the curse (see Gal 3:13-14).
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation, (see Acts 4:12), salvation is a free gift and is received by those that choose to believe, (see John 3:16). And whoever confesses Jesus as Lord and believes in their heart that God raised Jesus from the dead will be saved. (See Romans 10:9-10.) Once we make this decision, we are born-again (see John 3:3), and we become new creations, old things are passed away, and all things become new. (See 2 Co 5:17.)
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and we speak with other tongues. (See Acts 2:1-4.) We do not always know how to pray, but the Holy Spirit within us intercedes on our behalf the perfect will of the Father. (See Rom 8: 26-27.) When we pray in tongues we edify ourselves, (see 1 Co 14:4). We have the power of the Holy Spirit to be a witness to the end of the earth. (See Acts 1:8.)
We believe that every person in the body of Christ is unique and important. (See 1 Co 12.) We believe in the 5 fold ministry, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, and that they are called and appointed by God, (see Eph 4:11). We believe in the Gifts of the Spirit, the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healings, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, tongues and the interpretation of tongues, and that these gifts are distributed as the Holy Spirit wills. (See 1 Co 12.)
We believe the Church has been given a great responsibility and that we are to go out with the power of the Holy Spirit, with signs and wonders following, and preach the gospel to all people. Those that believe will be saved, and those that do not will be condemned. (See Mark 16: 14-18.)
We believe that we are living in the beginning of sorrows, (see Matt 24: 8), and that the return of Jesus Christ is soon. We do not believe that anyone can predict the date of Christ’s return, because it says in Matthew 24:36, “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” But God does want us to be ready and teaches us the signs of the end-times in Matthew 24: 3-15. And Jesus says to us, “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to everyone according to his work.”
