We Believe

  • This Ministry shall be conducted according to the standards of the “New
    Testament Scriptures”.  The Holy Scriptures are accepted as the revealed
    Word of God, as in the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice.
  • That the entire Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit,
    to which nothing can be added or taken away (2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17;
    Romans 1:16).
  • That there is only one living God, eternal and with unlimited power.  He is the
    Creator of all things, and in one God there are three  distinct persons — the
    Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:6; Matthew 28:19; John 5:17).
  • That the Son of God, who assumed the human body through the Virgin Mary,
    was made of flesh and so is truly God and truly human (John 1:14; Luke 1:27-
    35; 1 Peter 3:18).
  • In the existence of a personal devil who with all evil spirits will be eternally
    punished in the lake of fire (Matthew 25:41).
  • In the Genesis account of Creation and that man was made in the image and
    likeness of God (Genesis 1 & 2).
  • That man was created in innocence under God’s Law, but voluntarily fell into
    transgression in consequence of which we are all made sinners (Romans 5:12;
    Genesis 7:10; 1 Timothy 2:13-14).
  • That Jesus was a sinless person and died in our stead in place of sinners;
    making full atonement for our sins in His body on the Cross (Ephesians 1:17;
    Isaiah 53:2;  2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Corinthians 1:30).
  • That the Regeneration or the New Birth is received only through faith in
    Christ Jesus who was delivered up for our trespasses and was raised for our
    justification. They who are in Christ Jesus are new creatures (Romans 3:24-
    25; 2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Corinthians 1: 30).
  • In the water baptism by single immersion in the name of the Father, Son, and
    Holy Spirit, according to the commission of Christ (Matthew 28:18-19).
  • In the baptism of the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in other tongues
    as the Spirit gives the utterance (Acts 2:4).
  • In observance of the Lord’s Supper.  When Christ, having taken bread, gave
    thanks and broke it and gave it to them saying, “This is My body which is
    given for you; this do in remembrance of Me.” Likewise also He took the cup
    after saying, “This is the New Testament in My blood which is shed for you.”
    (Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:24; John 13:4-17).
  • That Jesus Christ Himself bore all our infirmities and, therefore, we obey the
    scriptural mandate as delivered to us in James 5:14 and Matthew 8:18.
  • That the Lord Himself (before the tribulation) shall descend from heaven and
    catch away, or “Rapture”, the Bride of Christ, which is the church (1
    Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelations 20:6).
  • That there shall be a bodily resurrection of all dead, just and unjust.  The
    unjust shall go away into everlasting punishment; the just into everlasting
    life.  (Revelations 20: 11-12; Matthew 25:46).
  • That we should give our tithes, 10% of our income, and the offering (that
    which is above our tithes) as the Lord prospers us.  (Malachi 3:10; 1
    Corinthians 9:13-14; 1 Corinthians 16:2).
  • In the diversities of gifts by the same Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:1-31).
  • That all things should be done with charity.  Without charity it profits
    nothing for the work of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 13:1-13).
  • In the five-fold ministry gifts as set apart in the scriptures (Ephesians 4:11-12).
