Faith Statements


A.  The Scriptures Inspired

    The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of 
    Faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason.
    (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:23-24; Hebrews 4:12)
B.  The One True God-Head

    The triune God-head comprises 3 separate and distinct personalities: the Father, the 
    Son, and the Holy Spirit - who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and function as one 
    entity.  Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is the second member of the 
    God-head; co-equal and co-eternal with the father and the Holy Spirit.

C.  Man, His Fall and Redemption

    Man was created good and upright. For God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after
    Our likeness.” But man, by voluntary transgression, fell and his only hope of redemption
    Is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
    (Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)

D. The Salvation of Man

    a.   Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross,
        Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and divine healing for 
        all mankind; (Psalm 103:3) being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption
        that is in Christ Jesus. For by Grace we are saved through faith.  “The Word is near 
        You, in your mouth and in your heart -- that is, the Word of Faith which we are 
        preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your 
        heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man
        believes, resulting in salvation.”
        (Romans 3:24; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:8-10)

    b.  The evidences of Salvation. The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the
        direct witness of the Spirit. (Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of
        Righteousness and true holiness.  “And this is His commandment, that we believe in 
        the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.”
        (I John 3:23)

    c.  Faith and Works. Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; 
        However, our works will determine the rewards in eternity. 
        (Acts 16:3; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; Romans 14:10-12, 
        II Corinthians 5:10)
E.  Baptism In Water

    The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the 
    Scriptures by all who have really repented, and in their hearts, have truly believed on Christ
    as Savior and Lord.  In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and
    That they have also been raised with Him to walk in the newness of life.
    (Matthew 29:19; Acts 10:47; Acts 10:48; Romans 6:4)

 
F.  The Lord’s Supper

    “And when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘This is my body which is for you; do 
    this in remembrance of me.  In the same way he also took the cup after supper saying, ‘This
    cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.
    Let a man examine himself and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.’ ” 
    (I Corinthians 11:24, 25, 28)

G.  The Promise of the Father.

    All Believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the Promise of the
    Father, the Baptism in the Holy Ghost and Fire, 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 the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
    (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; I Corinthians 12:1-31) This wonderful experience is distinct from 
    and subsequent to the experience of the new birth.”
    (Acts 2:38; Acts 10:44-46: Acts 11:14-16; Acts 15:7-9)

H.  The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

    The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the 
    Initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and by the 
    subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service. 
    (Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:2, 6)
I.  The Church

    The Church is the body of 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; Ephesians 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)

J.  Sanctification

    The Bible teaches that without holiness, no man can see the Lord. We believe in Sanctification
    as a definite yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and 
    continuing until the consummation of salvation.
    (Hebrews 12:14; I Thessalonians 5:23; II Peter 3:18; II Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 3:12-14;
    John 17:17; Romans 15:16; I Peter 1:2)

K.  Divine Healing

    Divine Healing is provided for in the redemption of Christ and it is the privilege of every 
    believer today. Divine Healing is an integral part of the gospel. 
    (Mark 16:18; James 5:14-20; I Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:17; Isaiah 53:4-5)

L.  Total Prosperity

    a. Spiritual - John 3:3, 11; I Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-10
    b. Mental - II Timothy 1:7; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3
    c. Physical - Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; I Peter 2:24
    d. Financial - III John 1:2; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6-10; Deut. 28:1-14
    e. Social - Proverbs 3:4; Luke 2:52; Acts 2:47

M.  Blessed Hope

    Jesus is coming again to gather all His Saints to Heaven.
    (I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; II Thessalonians 2:1)
N.  The Lake Of Fire

    Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal 
    separation from the God-head. The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet,
    and anyone whose name was not found written in the Book of Life shall be consigned to
    Everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.  This is the 2nd
    Death, the lake of fire.
    (Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:10-15)

O.  The Millennial Reign of Jesus

    The return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His Saints from Heaven to rule and reign for one 
    thousand years on earth as the scripture promised.
    (Romans 11:25-27; II Thessalonians 1:7; Revelation 19:11-16; 20:1-7)
    After this there shall be a New Heaven and a New Earth. (Revelation 21)
