WE BELIEVE ...
The Bible is the inspired Word of God.
The Bible gives a true history of all creation.
The Bible contains a correct prophecy of the ages to come.
There is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4).
He has revealed Himself as the Father (Creator), Son (Savior), Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).
Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of God according to the flesh (Romans 1:3).
Jesus Christ is God Himself according to the Spirit (John 10:30).
Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:35).
Jesus Christ was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead (Luke 24:7; Hosea 6:1-2).
All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
Sin is the transgression of the commandment of God (John 3:4).
The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
Salvation is the deliverance from all sin through the blood of Jesus Christ.
The New Testament experience of salvation consists of repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38; John 3:5).
Water baptism is an essential part of the New Testament salvation.
Water baptism is to be administered only by immersion (Romans 6:4).
It is important that the name of Jesus be used when baptism is being administered. The scripture list three titles (Father, Son, Holy Ghost) and Jesus is the one name for all three (Matthew 28:19).
No one was ever baptized in the Bible using the titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38).
BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST
The Baptism of the Holy Ghost is the birth of the Spirit.
John the Baptist foretold this Baptism (Matthew 3:11).
The Holy Ghost was first poured out on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:4).
Speaking with other tongues is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost (Acts 10:44-46 See also Acts 2:4; 19:6).
Tongues were foretold by Jesus as a sign that would follow believers (Mark 16:17).
Holiness is God’s standard of living for His people.
We must present ourselves as holy unto God (Romans 12:1).
Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.
Jesus went everywhere healing those who were sick and He commanded His disciples to do the same (Mark 16:18;James 5:14-16).
SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
Jesus Christ is coming back to earth in bodily form.
Jesus Christ will catch away a holy people who have accepted redemption through His blood (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
We fast as a way to set aside our desires (or flesh) and draw near to God to understand what His will is for us (Matthew 17:20-21).
Prayer is a vital role in any Spiritual Endeavor. Therefore we believe that prayer should cover all that we do (Jude 1:20).
We receive communion on a regular basis as instructed in scripture (1 Corinthians 11:25-26)
WHY DO WE ...
WORSHIP THE WAY WE DO?
MUSIC, INSTRUMENTS AND DANCE
God’s Word instructs us to worship Him, and one way is through music (Psalm 150: 3-4).
CLAP, LIFT OUR HANDS, AND GIVE AUDIBLE PRAISE UNTO GOD
When we clap, lift our hands, and give audible praise, this is an outward expression of our inward feelings (Psalm 98:4).
ANOINT WITH OIL?
We anoint with oil for the divine healing of the body, soul, and spirit (James 5:14-16).
BELIEVE IN SPIRITUAL GIFTS?
We allow the operation of spiritual gifts during our services because the Bible says, “How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification” (1 Corinthians 14:26).
HAVE ALTAR CALLS?
This is an important time in our service when each individual can come and contemplate their own life or situation. During this time, individuals are ministered to and receive deliverance, support, and prayer.
BELIEVE IN TITHING?
A part of the ministry of the saints includes the giving of tithes and offering.
In the Old Testament, believers of the One true God gave tithes and offerings.
A tithe is ten percent of one’s income (Genesis 28:20-29:1).
Jesus Christ endorsed the giving of tithes (Matthew 23:23-24).
