The Fundamental teachings of this ministry are reflected in the following clear Statements of Faith:
We believe in the plenary verbal inspiration of the accepted canon of scriptures as originally given. The scriptures are infallible, inerrant and the sole and final authority for all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3: 16, 1 Corinthians 2: 13).
We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as One God existing in Three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, distinguishable but indivisible. (Matthew 28: 19, 2 Corinthians 13: 14).
We believe in the Creation, Test and Fall of Man as recorded in Genesis, his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness. (Romans 5: 12, 18).
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the savior of men, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born by the virgin Mary, very God and very Man. (Luke 1: 26- 35, John 1: 14- 18, Isaiah 7: 14, 9: 6).
We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared unto his disciples. (1 Corinthians 15: 1-4, Romans 4: 25).
We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation and personally, literal and bodily coming again the second time for His Church. (John 14: 2- 3, 1 Thessalonians 4: 13- 18).
We believe in the Salvation of sinners by Grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the Cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins. (Ephesians 2: 8- 9, Hebrews 9: 12, 22, Romans 5: 11).
We believe in the necessity of Water Baptism by immersion in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28: 19, Acts 2: 34- 36, 19: 1- 6).
We believe in the Infilling of the Holy Spirit at or subsequent to salvation, with the scriptural evidence of being empowered with the gifts of the spirit to go out to witness. (Acts 2: 1- 4, 8: 14- 17, 19: 6).
We believe in the operation of the gifts and ministries of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12- 14, Ephesians 4, as manifested in the early Church.
We believe in the Spirit filled life, a life of separation from the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as expressing the true Christian faith. (Ephesians 5: 18, 2 Corinthians 6: 14, 7: 1).
We believe in the healing of the body by divine power, or divine healing in its varied aspects as practiced in the early church(Acts 4: 30, Romans 8: 11, 1 Corinthians 12: 9, James 5: 14) and deliverance in the name of Jesus.(Mark 16: 17).
We believe in the table of the Lord, commonly called the communion or the Lord’s Supper for believers. (1 Corinthians 11: 28- 32, Matthew 26: 26- 28).
We believe in the reality and personality of the devil and eternal judgment in the lake of fire for the devil and his angels. (Matthew 25: 41, Revelation 20: 14- 15).
We believe in the eternal life for believers (John 5:24, 3:16), and eternal punishment for the unbelievers. (Mark 9: 43- 48, 2 Thessalonians 1: 9, Revelation 20: 10- 15).
We believe that there is one universal church, made up of genuine believers, but this one universal church is also composed of many local Churches in given localities. These Churches are under the sovereign headship of the Lord Jesus Christ, exercising autonomous government under Him, administering all its local affairs and ministry, as well as the propagation of the Gospel. (Acts 15: 22, Matthew 16: 18, 18: 15- 20).
We believe in the divinely called and spiritually ordained ministry that has been provided by our Lord for the three fold purpose of leading the church in: A. Evangelization of the world. (Mark 16: 15- 20), B. Worship God (John 4: 23- 24), C. Building a body of Saints being perfected in the image of His Son. (Ephesians 4: 11, 16).
We believe that the government is ordained of God, and the powers that we are ordained as ministers of God to us for good. To resist the powers and the ordinances is to resist the ordinance of God. We are subject not only for wrath sake but for conscience sake, rendering to all their dues, custom to whom custom, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. We declare our loyalty to our government and its leaders and assist in every way possible according to the scriptural teaching. (Romans 13).
We believe in the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.(Romans 8: 23, 1 Corinthians 15: 51- 52, 1 Thessalonians 4: 16- 17, Titus 2: 13).We believe that there will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the book of life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to the everlasting punishment in the lake of fire and brimstone which is the second death. (Matthew 25: 46, Mark 9: 43- 48, Revelation 19: 20, 20:11- 15, 21: 8).
We believe that there is the promise of the new heaven and the new earth in which the righteousness will dwell and His peace will reign. (2 Peter 3: 13, Revelation 21- 22)
