The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the full and complete revelation of the plan and history of God’s dealings with mankind.
There is one God, manifest in three persons of one substance: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
1. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who became man to suffer and die for the penalty of sin upon mankind, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and with the Father carries out His work of salvation in all who will believe.
2. The Holy Spirit is of one substance, majesty and glory, with the Father, and the Son.
3. Salvation-Jesus Christ shed his blood for the forgiveness of sins, and deliverance from the power of sin; sinners are saved by faith alone in Jesus Christ’s work.
Jesus Christ shed his blood for the complete cleansing of the believer from all indwelling sin and its pollution; sanctification is a definite work of grace received by faith which sets the believer apart for the purposes of God.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues equips the believer with power for witness and service.
Divine healing was provided through the work of Christ on the cross.
Jesus Christ is personally coming again to establish an everlasting kingdom.
Eternal life with God in heaven is the future of believers; and that everlasting separation from God, and unending punishment in hell, is the future of those who have rejected Christ as their Savior
Although there are many meaningful religious services and ceremonies, there are only two practices that clearly rise to the level of ordinances. By submitting to the ordinance of Water Baptism and by regular observance of the Lord’s Supper, the Christian proclaims to the world that he has renounced his former life of living for sin and self and now belongs, body, soul, and spirit, to Christ as the Lord of his life.
1. Water Baptism Water Baptism is intended only for those who have professed faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a God-given illustration of each Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. Obedience to this ordinance demonstrates the believer’s public confession of this fact to others.
2. Holy Communion Holy Communion commemorates our redemption by Christ’s death. It points to Calvary and to the return of Jesus, whose blood cleanses us from all sin and prepares us for His blessed return (Matthew 26:17-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-30).
