  • WE BELIEVE IN SCRIPTURE

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. We accept the New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, as our infallible guide concerning the conduct and doctrine subjects

(2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 2:13 and 1 Peter 1:21).


  • WE BELIEVE IN THE TRINITY

Our God is one but is manifested in three persons - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Are co-equal (Philippians 2:6). God the Father is the Source of the Word (Logos) and the generator of life (John 14:28: 16:28 and 1:14). The Son is the Word flesh covered, the One who was begotten and there with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1, 1:18 and 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 15:26).


  • WE BELIEVE IN THE MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION

Man is a created being, made in the image and likeness of God; however, through the transgression and fall of Adam sin entered the world. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Thus it is written: "None is righteous, no not one." Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the works of the devil. Gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man to God (Romans 5:14; 3:10; 3:23 and 1 John 3:8). Salvation is the gift of God to man, does not operate through the works of the law, but by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and produces works pleasing to God (Ephesians 2:8).


  • WE BELIEVE IN ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH

The first step of man toward salvation is godly sorrow that leads to repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when fulfilled produces eternal life (2 Corinthians 7:10, 1 John 5:12 and John 3:3-5).


  • WE BELIEVE IN WATER BAPTISM

Water baptism is by immersion, is an express commandment of our Lord for believers. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12, Acts 8:36-39). Concerning the water baptism, a rule 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 of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. "


  • WE BELIEVE IN BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

The baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation. It subsequently received the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives himself (Matthew 3:11, 17, John 14:16, Acts 1:8, 2:38-39 and 19:1-7).


  • WE BELIEVE IN HOLINESS

The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite and progressive work of grace; beginning at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation having salvation (Hebrews 12:14, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 2 Peter 3:18, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Philippians 3:12-14 and 1 Corinthians 1:30).


  • WE BELIEVE IN DIVINE HEALING

Healing is for physical ailments of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith and by the laying on of hands. Was provided through the atonement of Christ and is the privilege of every member of the Church today (Mark 16:18, James 5:14-25, 1 Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:17 and Isaiah 53:4 and 5).


  • WE BELIEVE IN THE RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD

The angels said: "The same Jesus will come back the same way you have seen him go up."His return is imminent. And when He comes, "... the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air ... "(Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17). After the Tribulation He will return to earth as King of kings and priests, will reign one thousand years (Revelation 2:6).


  • WE BELIEVE IN HELL AND ETERNAL PUNISHMENT

One who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire; carrying no more opportunity in the future to hear the Gospel of repentance. The Lake of Fire is literal. The term "eternal" s and "forever", used to describe the duration of the punishment of punishment in the Lake of Fire, brings the same sense and meaning of endless existence that is used to indicate the duration of joy and ecstasy of the saints in presence of God (Hebrews 9:27 and Revelation 19:20).
