1. The One True God: There is one living and true God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19).
2. The Scriptures Inspired: The Bible is the only infallible, inspired, authoritative, written Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
3. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ: We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory. (John 1:1).
4. Original Sin and the Fall of Man: We believe that man, created in the image of God, fell into the depths of sin and iniquity by voluntary disobedience. In doing so, He passed on sin’s nature and consequences to all mankind with their accompanying loss of intended meaning and purpose (Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12).
5. The Salvation of Man: Man’s only hope of redemption and salvation from the power of sin is to willingly choose repentance and faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is a free gift from God and is available to any and all who call upon the Name of the Lord (Acts 4:12; Romans 5:813, 15; 10:9, 13; James 1:21; Ephesians 2:8; Hebrews 3:12, 6:4-6, 12:15; Matthew 13:22; 2 Timothy 4:10; 1 Timothy 1:19).
6. The Church and its Mission: We believe in the Lord’s commission, to go into all the world to preach the gospel of the Kingdom and disciple nations (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:15-18).
7. The Ordinances of the Church:
a. Baptism in water in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All who repent of their sins and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. This is a declaration to the world that they identify with Christ in His death and have been raised with Him in newness of life (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47, 48; Romans 6:4).
b. The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the communion sacraments of bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbolic expression of our sharing the Divine nature of Christ (2 Peter 1:4), and a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26).
8. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit: The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit brings power for life and service (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 2:11; 10:46; 1 Corinthians 12:131).
9. Divine Healing: Divine healing was provided for all in the Old Testament (Exodus 15:2226; Psalms 103:13; Isaiah 53:4, 5) and in the New Testament it is an integral part of the Gospel (Matthew 8:16, 17; Acts 5:16; James 5:1416).
10. The Final Judgment: We believe that all shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ: the redeemed to be delivered unto everlasting life, and the unrepentant unto everlasting punishment (Revelation 20:11, 12; 2 Corinthians 5:10).
