What We Believe

THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED The Bible consisting of the 66 Books, is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infalliable rule of the faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. (Hebrews 4:12, 2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:15-17)
THE ONE TRUE GOD The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed I AM, and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association of the Trinity as Father, Son and Holy Ghost. (Deuteronomy 6:4, 43:10-11, Matthew 28:19, Mark 12:29, Matthew 3: 16-17, John 14: 16-17)
MAN Man was created good and upright. For God said, Let us make man in Our own image, after Our likeness. But man fell by voluntary transgression and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Genesis 1:27-31, Romans 5:12-21)
THE SALVATION OF MAN - Conditions to SalvationThe Grace of God, which bringeth salvation, has appeared to all men through the preaching of repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus. Man, saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, and being justified by grace though faith, he becomes as heir of God according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24: 47, Romans 10: 13-15, Titus 2:11, 3:5-7)
THE SALVATION OF MAN - The Evidence of Salvation
The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. (Romans 8:18), The outward evidence to all man is life of righteousness and holiness. (Romans 6:22)
THE LORD'S SUPPER The Lord’s Supper consisting of the elements, bread and the fruit of the wine, is a memorial of His suffering and death and a prophecy of His second coming, and is enjoined in all believers ‘Until He comes’. (Luke 22: 17-20, 1st Corinthians 10:16,17, 11:23-32)
THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly see the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church, With it comes the endowment of power for life and service and the bestowment of the gifts and their users in the work of the ministry. (Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-6, 1st Corinthians 12:1-31) This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. (Acts 2:38, 10:44-46, 11:14-16, 15:7-9, 19:12)
THE EVIDENCE OF BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the spiritual power in public testimony and service. (Acts 1:8, 2, 4, 42, 43, 10:44-46)
ENTIRE SANCTIFICATIONThe scriptures teach a life of holiness, without which no man shall see God. By the power of the Holy Ghost, we are able to obey the command, ‘Be ye holy.’ Sanctification is the will of God for all believers and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to the Word of God. (Romans 8:4-5, 1st Thessalonians 5:23,24, 1st Peter 11:5,16, John 2:6, 2nd Corinthians 7:1)
THE CHURCH The Church is the body of the 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 firstborn, which are written in Heaven. (Ephesians 1:22,23, 2:19-22, Hebrew 12:23)
THE MINISTRY AND EVANGELISM A divinely called and spiritually ordained ministry had been provided by our Lord for a two fold purpose:- The evangelization of the world,
The edification of the body of Christ. (Mark 16:15-20, Ephesians 4:11-13)
DIVINE HEALING Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers. (Isaiah 53:4, Matthew 8:16-17, Mark16:18-20, James 5:14-16)
THE BLESSED HOPE The pre-millennial Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, is imminent and is the blessed hope of the church. (Romans 8:23, 1st Corinthians 15:51-52, 1st Thessalonians 4:16-18, Titus 2:13)
MILLENIAL REIGN OF JESUSThe revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of all Israel , and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth is the scriptural promise and the worlds hope. (Romans 11: 25-27, 2nd Thessalonians 1:7, Revelations 19:11-16, 20:1-7)
THE LAKE OF FIREThe Devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet and whoever is not found written in the Book of Life shall be cast into everlasting punishment that is burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (Revelations 19:20, 20:10-15)
THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTHWe, according to His promise look for new heavens and a new earth were in dwelt righteousness.’ (2nd Peter 3:13, Revelations 21:1)
