We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God and the basis for our beliefs. We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to mankind. For the purpose of maintaining general unity, we adopt these statements as fundamental truths, to wit:
The Scriptures Inspired. We believe that the Holy Bible, both the Old Testament and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
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 Mankind.
The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in the deity and the humanity of Jesus Christ, who is none other than God manifested in the flesh, and in whom all the fullness WE BELIEVE in the Virgin Birth. Jesus was both human and divine; He was God manifested in flesh. (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; I Timothy 3:16) WE BELIEVE in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. of the Godhead dwell forever. The Scriptures Declares: 1. His virgin birth. 2. His sinless life. 3. His substitution work on the cross. 4. His bodily resurrection from the dead. 5. His soon coming for His people, the Church. The Salvation of Man. Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
Condition to Salvation Salvation is received through repentance and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By being baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for remission of sins and being filled with the Holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking with other tongues. Being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God (Mark 16-16-18, Acts 2:4, 38-39.
Feet Washing This ordinance is as much a divine command as any other New Testament Ordinance. Jesus gave us an example that we should do even as He had done. He said that we ought to wash one another’s feet. (St. John 13:4-17.)
Stewardship We believe that God, the Creator and Owner of all things, has entrusted us to the victory in His life, time, influence, money, goods, and all things whatsoever he possesses. As his stewards of these possessions, we will administer them under the will of God for the purpose of Jesus Christ. As definite expression of this stewardship we are to contribute through Organizational dues and freewill offerings, systematically and proportionately and faithfully of His means to the support of his Church and of the missionary and benevolent enterprises of the Kingdom of God. WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, written by holy men of God as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (II Peter 1:21)
WE BELIEVE in one God who is infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purposes as well as omniscient and omnipresent. WE BELIEVE that He was revealed to us as Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Spirit in His grace, never leaving those who trust in Him. (Deut. 6:4; Is. 45:18; John 1:1, 14) WE BELIEVE that in Jesus dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, for it pleased the Father that in Him should all the fullness dwell. (Col. 2:9; 1:19; John 14:8; 10:30; I John 5:7, Isaiah 43: 10-15) WE BELIEVE that He ascended on high and has sent his spirit, the Holy Ghost, which was poured out at Jerusalem over 2000 years ago, and it is this same spirit that fills the hearts of those who seek Him today. (Acts 2:22-24; I Cor. 15:20; Acts 2:4) WE BELIEVE in baptism in water by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. This constitutes the new birth. (Acts 2:38; St. John 3:3-8; Acts 8:16; 10:44-46; 19:5; Titus 3:5) WE BELIEVE in a holy, sanctified life. WE BELIEVE in divine healing, communion and foot washing. WE BELIEVE also in the glorious catching away (The Rapture) of the saints when Jesus returns in the clouds of glory to take His people to Heaven. (I Peter 1:16; St. Matthew 5:48; II Corinth. 7:1; I Thess. 4:16; St. Mark 16:17-18) WE BELIEVE that JESUS is the only saving NAME and so whatsoever you do in word or deed, should ALL be done in the Name of the Lord Jesus. (Acts 4:12; Col. 3:17)
