(2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thes. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they
were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as
our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine.
(1Phil. 2:6; 2John 14:28, 16:28, 1:14; 3John 1:1, 14, 18 4John 15:26)
Our God is one, but manifested in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, being coequal1. God the Father is greater than all, the Source of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter2. The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning.
The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal.
MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION
(1Rom. 5:14, 3:23; I John 3:8; 2Eph. 2:8)
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and the image of God, but through Adam’s transgression
and fall, sin came into the world. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” “As it is
written, there is none righteous, no not one.” Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo
the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God1.
Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace
through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God2.
ETERNAL LIFE AND NEW BIRTH
(2 Cor. 7:7:10; 1 John 5:12; John 3:3-5)
Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The new birth is necessary
to all men, and when fulfilled, produces eternal life.
(Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36-39)
Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The
ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.!
The following recommendation regarding the water baptismal formula is adopted; to wit: “On the confession
of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and by His authority, I baptize you in
the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen.”
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST
(Matt. 3:11; John 14:16,17; Acts 1:8, 2:28,39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:4)
The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all
believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied
by the initial evidence of the speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance.
(Heb. 12:14; 1 Thes. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12-14; 1 Cor. 1:30)
The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of
Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration
and continuing until the consummation of salvation.
(Mark 16:18; James 5:14-25; 1 Peter 2:24; Matt. 8:17; Isa. 53:4,5)
Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the
prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the
privilege of every member of the church today.
RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD
(1Acts 1:11; 1 Thes. 4:16,17. 2Rev. 20:6)
The angels said, “This same Jesus shall so come in like manner.” His coming is imminent. When He
comes, “The dead in Christ shall rise first; then we which we are alive and remain shall be caught up
together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air” 1.
Following the tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords and together
with his saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years 2.
HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION
(Heb. 9:27; Rev. 19:20)
The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of
Fire, and therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The Lake of Fire is
literal. The terms “eternal” and “everlasting,” used in describing the duration of the punishment of the
damned in the Lake of Fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in
denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of saints in the presence of God.
