The Bible
The Bible is the inspired Word of God and therefore our infallible rule of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:16-17; I Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)

 

God
There is one God, revealing Himself in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 12:33; Deut. 33:27; Psalms 90:2; 102:27; I Tim 1:17)

 

Jesus The Christ
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His pre-existence, incarnation and virgin birth of Jesus Christ (John. 1:1-2 & 14; I Tim. 3:16; Acts 7:37-38)

 

Christ's Ascension And Imminent Return
Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died as atonement for the sin of humanity, He physically resurrected from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and will personally return in power and great glory, to set up His everlasting Kingdom and dominion on earth. (Acts 1:11; 3:19-21; Daniel 7:14; Revelation 20:4)

 

The Creation of Man
Human beings are creatures of God, created by a direct and immediate act of God and in the image of the Creator. (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:4)

 

The Fall of Man
By transgression human beings have fallen from a state of righteousness and holiness in which we were first created, into total spiritual depravity, a state of death in trespasses and sins in which we are held as a slave of sin and enemies of God, being unable to attain divine righteousness by our own efforts. We can only be redeemed and delivered by the power of the gospel. (Romans 5:12-21; I Corinthians 15:1-4)

 

Repentance
Repentance is only possible through the conviction of the Holy Spirit in the lives of sinners and believers. Repentance is a total change of heart, mind, attitude, emotions, will, action and lifestyle flowing from the turmoil and sorrow of the Holy Spirit's conviction of sin. (Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Corinthians 7:10)

 

Justification
Repentance and faith in Christ as Savior leads to our justification for the believer. Through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the believer is justified and made a partaker in the death and life of Christ. (Rom. 5:1,9; Luke 22:20)

 

Water Baptism
Water baptism is essential and necessary for total obedience to the commands of our Lord (Matt 28:19; Mark 16:16). The condition for which any person may be baptized being repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. And believers are to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (which we believe to be the fulfillment of the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and for the remission of sin. (Acts 2:38) This act is to be done by immersion.

 

Baptism in the Holy Spirit
The baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4; 10:46; 19:6) is the seal of the New Covenant relationship, (Eph. 1:13; 4:30; 2 Corinth. 1:22) The true evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is one's response to the Word of God (John 16:13), a Christ-like life, showing forth Christ's character, nature and experiencing and manifesting the fruit of the Holy Spirit. (John 15:26; 16:14; Gal. 5:22-23; Eph. 5:18-21)

 

Healing
There is divine healing for the whole man - spirit, soul and body. Healing was obtained through the atonement in Christ's sacrificial death (I Peter 2:24-25; Isaiah 53:4-5; Acts 4:30; 19:11; Romans 8:11; I Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14).

 

Worship
Worship is a lifestyle. We worship God by manifesting Christ-like character, therefore we are to worship with our total being. (Matthew 4:10; Mark 12:32; Rom 3:30; John 4:23 - 24)

 

Family
Human beings are created in the image of God and God created them male and female. As such He created them different so as to complement and complete each other. (1 Corinth. 6:9-11; 1 Tim. 1:9-11)
