God is one, consisting of three Persons—the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is eternal and has always existed outside of time and space.
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who is both fully God and fully man, without sin. Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born of a virgin. He died on the cross for our sins and was raised to life after three days and is seated with the Heavenly Father. Jesus is the only One who ultimately restores mankind from sin through His shed blood. He is returning again to reign forever in the new heavens and new earth.
We recognize the Bible as the inerrant authority of the 66 canonized books of Holy Scripture and acknowledge dependence upon the Holy Spirit for their accurate interpretation and application. We hold the Word of God (Logos) as the supreme authority in matters of faith and conduct.
Sin is condition of the human heart since birth that causes each and every person to fall short of the standard of perfection established by God. By voluntary transgression, man fell, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life. All who repent of sin and believe on Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the continual infilling of the Holy Spirit and the accompanying gifts, power to witness, graces and fruits of the Spirit. Believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire. With the baptism in the Holy Spirit come such experiences as an overflowing fullness of the Spirit, a deepened reverence for God, an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work, and a more active love for Christ, for His Word, and for the lost.
Holy Communion is the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ; a memorial of His suffering and death; and a prophecy of His second coming; and is enjoined on all believers “till He come!”
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the Atonement and is the privilege of all believers.
