We are an interdenominational Christian ministry that believes all souls should benefit from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our tenets of faith are the following:
THE SCRIPTURES: The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (John 17:17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
THE GODHEAD: Our God is one (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:8; James 2:19), revealed through the Holy Bible as the Father in creation (Isaiah 45:12; Malachi 2:10; John 1:14; John 14:28; John 16:28; Hebrews 1:1-3), The Son in redemption (Matthew 5:17; John 1:1,14, 17, 18; 2 Corinthians 5:19; 1 Timothy 2:5; 1 Timothy 3:16) and the Holy Spirit in our regeneration (Matthew 3:11,12, John 14:16,17,26; 15:26; Romans 8:11,14-16,26,27).
MAN, HIS FALL, AND REDEMPTION: Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall sin came into the world. The Bible says “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” and “There is none righteous, no not one” (Romans 3:23,10, respectively). Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the works of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Romans 5:14,15; 1 John 3:8)
ETERNAL LIFE AND NEW BIRTH: Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The new birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced produces eternal life (Luke 13:3; Luke 24:47; John 3:3-5; 2 Corinthians 7:10; 1 John 5:12,13).
WATER BAPTISM: Baptism in water is by immersion, it is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection, and it was modeled by the apostles and early church (Matthew 28:19; John 3:5; Acts 2:38; Acts 8:16,36-39; Acts 10:47,48; Acts 19:4,5; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12).
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT: The baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance (Joel 2:28, Matthew 3:11,12; John 14:16; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38,39; Acts 10:45,46; Acts 19:6).
SANCTIFICATION: The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return (1 Corinthians 1:30; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 3:12-16; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 12:14; 2 Peter 3:18).
DIVINE HEALING: Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, laying of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the body of the Church today (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:17; Mark 16:18; James 5:14,15; 1 Peter 2:24).
RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD: The angels said to Jesus ‘ disciples, “…this same Jesus, which was taken up from you into heaven shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven”: His coming is imminent. When He comes “…the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.” (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION: The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the gospel or repenting. The lake of fire is literal. The terms eternal and everlasting used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the lake of fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of saints in the Presence of God (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 19:20).
