Affirmation of Faith

 

We believe

 
1. that the Bible be the only inspired, infallible, authoritative word of God. It is our all sufficient rule for faith and practice.
 
2. that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
 
3. in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles; He died for our sins, was buried, and raised from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as our intercessor.
 
4. that faith in Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are absolutely essential.
 
5. that the Pentecostal baptism of the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power for those who have clean hearts, and the initial evidence of the reception of this experience is speaking with other tongues as the spirit gives utterance.
 
6. that the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, giving different kinds of spiritual gifts to enable Christians to live a life of godliness and effective service.
 
7. that those who are saved by His Divine grace should receive water baptism, in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost as a testimony to the world that He has accepted Christ as Savior and Lord.
 
8. in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper as commemorating Christ’s death and anticipating His second coming.
 
9. in the personal premillennial, second coming of Jesus, first, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to meet Him in the air; second, to reign with His saints on earth a thousand years.
 
10. in the resurrection of the saved and the lost, the saved to the resurrection of life and the lost to the resurrection of judgment
