Scriptures Inspired
The Old and New Testament Scriptures are verbally inspired by God. The infallible Word of God is the revelation of God to man. The Scriptures contain the all authoritative rules of faith and conduct.

One True God

There is one true God and He has revealed Himself as the eternally self existent "I AM", the creator of the Heavens and the Earth. He is the redeemer of mankind.

Triune Godhead

The Triune God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Co-eternal in being, co-eternal in nature, co-equal in power and glory, having the same attributes and perfections.

Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Holy Scriptures declare of His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary work on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead and His exaltation to the right hand of God.

The Fall of Man

Man was created good and upright in God's image. However, man, Adam, by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Man is totally depraved and of himself utterly unable to remedy his lost condition.

Salvation of Man

Salvation is the gift of God, delivered to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ shed His precious blood upon Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. The outward evidence to all, is a life of righteousness and true holiness.

Reality of Satan and Hell

Satan is real and presently dominates over unregenerated man. Hell is a real place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without Christ's salvation. The one, who physically dies in their sin without Christ, is hopeless and eternally lost in the lake of fire and has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or for repentance.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. With the baptism in the Holy Spirit, comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. With baptism in the Spirit comes such experience 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.

Evidence of Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance. The initial sign is followed by a life of continued sanctification.


Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil and of dedication unto God. The Scriptures teach a life of "holiness without which no one shall see the Lord". By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are able to obey the command, "be ye Holy, for I am Holy". Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of the union with Christ, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit.

The church and ministry

The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of its great commission. Every believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and Church of the First Born, which are written in Heaven. There is a great need for a local assembly of believers for the purpose of evangelism and edification.

Devine Healing

Devine healing is an integral part of the Gospel. Deliverance from sickness and disease is provided for in the atonement and is a privilege of all believers.

Blessed Hope

The return of the Lord Jesus Christ is the imminent and blessed hope of the church. "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."

Millennial Reign of Christ

The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on the earth, for one thousand years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of National Israel and the establishment of universal peace.

Final Judgement

There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Lamb's Book of Life, together with satan and his angels, the beast and false prophets, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake, which burns with fire and brimstone.

New Heavens and Earth

We according to His purpose, look for new heavens and a new earth, where in dwells righteousness.

Ordinances of the Church

We hold true to the ordinances of water baptism, observance of the Lord's Supper, dedication of children unto the Lord and anointing with oil and laying on hands of the sick and afflicted.
