What We Believe
The human phraseology employed in this statement is not inspired nor contended for, but
the truth set forth is held to be essential to a full Gospel ministry. No claim is made that it
contains all the truth in the Bible, only that it covers orthodox fundamental matters.
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to
man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its
end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally
true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and
will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme
standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All
Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.(Exodus
24:4; Deuteronomy 4:1-2; 17:19; Joshua 8:34; Psalms 19:7-10; 119:11,89,105,140; Isaiah
34:16; 40:8; Jeremiah 15:16; 36:1-32; Matthew 5:17-18; 22:29; Luke 21:33; 24:44-46; John
5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Acts 2:16ff.; 17:11; Romans 15:4; 16:25-26; 2 Timothy 3:15-17;
Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19-21).
The One True God
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM,”
and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and
association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Mark
12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19).
God the Father
God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the Glow of
the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all powerful, all
knowing, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God
through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men.(Genesis 1:1; 2:7;
Exodus 3:14; 6:2-3; 15:11ff.; 20:1ff.; Leviticus 22:2; Deuteronomy 6:4; 32:6; 1 Chronicles
29:10; Psalm 19:1-3; Isaiah 43:3,15; 64:8; Jeremiah 10:10; 17:13; Matthew 6:9ff.; 7:11;
23:9; 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 4:24; 5:26; 14:6-13; 17:1-8; Acts 1:7; Romans 8:14-15; 1
Corinthians 8:6; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17; Hebrews
11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17; 1 John 5:7).
God the Son
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the
Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God,
taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying
Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His
personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He made provision for
the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and
appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He
ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One
Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God
and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His
redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever present Lord.
(Genesis 18:1ff.; Psalms 2:7ff.; 110:1ff.; Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 11:27;

Revelation 1:13-16; 5:9-14; 12:10-11; 13:8; 19:16).
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He inspired holy men of old to write the
Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He
convicts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He calls men to the Savior, and
effects regeneration. At the moment of regeneration He baptizes every believer into the
Body of Christ. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows the
spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church. He seals the believer unto the
day of final redemption. His presence in the Christian is the guarantee that God will bring
the believer into the fullness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and empowers the
believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.(Genesis 1:2; Judges 14:6; Job
26:13; Psalms 51:11; 139:7ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Matthew 1:18; 3:16; 4:1;
12:28-32; 28:19; Mark 1:10,12; Luke 1:35; 4:1,18-19; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49; John 4:24;
14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4,38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 8:17,39; 10:44; 13:2;
15:28; 16:6; 19:1-6; Romans 8:9-11,14-16,26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; 3:16; 12:3-11,13;
Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; 1 Timothy 3:16; 4:1; 2
Timothy 1:14; 3:16; Hebrews 9:8,14; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 John 4:13; 5:6-7; Revelation 1:10;
Man and the Fall
Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. He created them male and
female as the crowning work of His creation. The gift of gender is thus part of the goodness
of God's creation. In the beginning man was innocent of sin and was endowed by his
Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin
into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the command of
God, and fell from his original innocence whereby his posterity inherit a nature and an
environment inclined toward sin. Therefore, as soon as they are capable of moral action,
they become transgressors and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring
man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God. The
sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and
in that Christ died for man; therefore, every person of every race possesses full dignity and
is worthy of respect and Christian love. (Genesis 1:26-30; 2:5,7,18-22; 3; 9:6; Psalms 1;
8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Matthew 16:26; Acts 17:26-31; Romans
1:19-32; 3:10-18,23; 5:6,12,19; 6:6; 7:14-25; 8:14-18,29; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31;
15:19,21-22; Ephesians 2:1-22; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11).
The Salvation of Man
Conditions of Salvation
The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of
repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the
washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has
become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Ro. 10:13-15;
Evidences of Salvation
The inward evidence to the believer of his/her salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit
(Ro. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of holiness (1 Thess. 4:7, 2 Tim.1:9).
Jesus Christ Indwells All Believers Through The Holy Spirit
Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them
by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to him thus making Jesus
the Lord of their life as well as Savior. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for
them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead (John 1:12; John 14:17, 23;
John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelations 3:20).
Baptism of the Holy Spirit
Initially giving at Pentecost, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father, sent
by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the church to preach the Gospel throughout the
whole earth (Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17,
10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6).
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the
church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel.
The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in
various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of
the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and
should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12
:4-8; 2 Timothy 1:5-14; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10).
By the power of the Holy Spirit we strive to obey the command, "Be ye holy, for I am holy."
Sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by
walking in obedience to God's Word (Heb. 12:14; 1 Pet. 1:15, 16; 1 Thess. 5:23, 24; 1 John
Marriage and the Family
God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is
composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.
Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.
It is God's unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for
the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the
channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation
of the human race.
The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God's image.
The marriage relationship models the way God relates to His people. A husband is to love
his wife as Christ loved the church. He has the God-given responsibility to provide for, to
protect, and to lead his family. A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant
leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.
She, being in the image of God as is her husband and thus equal to him, has the God-given
responsibility to respect her husband and to serve as his helper in managing the household
and nurturing the next generation.
Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord.
Parents are to demonstrate to their children God's pattern for marriage. Parents are to
teach their children spiritual and moral values and to lead them, through consistent
lifestyle example and loving discipline, to make choices based on biblical truth. Children are
to honor and obey their parents.(Genesis 1:26-28; 2:15-25; 3:1-20; Exodus 20:12;
Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Joshua 24:15; 1 Samuel 1:26-28; Psalms 51:5; 78:1-8; 127; 128;
139:13-16; Proverbs 1:8; 5:15-20; 6:20-22; 12:4; 13:24; 14:1; 17:6; 18:22; 22:6,15;
23:13-14; 24:3; 29:15,17; 31:10-31; Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; 9:9; Malachi 2:14-16; Matthew
5:31-32; 18:2-5; 19:3-9; Mark 10:6-12; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 7:1-16; Ephesians
5:21-33; 6:1-4; Colossians 3:18-21; 1 Timothy 5:8,14; 2 Timothy 1:3-5; Titus 2:3-5;
Hebrews 13:4; 1 Peter 3:1-7).
Baptism in Water
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son
,and the Holy Spirit, the only name wherein men may be saved which is the name of Jesus
Christ our Lord. The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed (as
commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts
have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that
they have died with Christ and that they have also been released to walk with Him in
newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Ro. 6:4).
The Lord’s Supper (Communion)
The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and fruit of the vine, is the symbol
expressing our sharing in a memorial to His suffering and death, and a prophecy of His
second coming, and is enjoined to all believers “until He comes” (John 6:48,51,53-57; Luke
22:19,20; 2 Pet. 1:4; 1 Cor. 11:25).
The church is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine
appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer is an integral part
of the church, and their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. (I Thess. 2:4)
The 5-Fold Ministry
Divinely called and Scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a 4-
fold purpose: (1) The evangelization of the world, (2) The maturing of the Body of Christ
(3) The edification of the Body of Christ, and (4) The unifying of the Body of Christ in Jesus
Christ.(Mark 16:15, 20; Eph. 4:11-13).
God's Will for Provision
It is the Father's will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of
life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God's will while on
Earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of
Christ's provision in order to better serve others.
Spiritual (John 3:3-11; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-10).
Mental and Emotional (2 Timothy 1:7, 2:11; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3).
Physical (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24).
Financial (Joshua 1:8; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; 2 Corinthians 9:6-10; Deuteronomy
28:1-14; Psalm 34:10, 84:11; Philippians 4:19).
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after
His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that
are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal
damnation (Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians
15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21).
Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His
Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures (Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64;
Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7).
The Lake of Fire
The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found
written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake
which burns fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15).
The New Heavens and New Earth
We, as promised in the Scriptures, look for a new heavens and a new earth wherein
righteousness dwells (2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21: l).
