OUrBeliefs

Scripture

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired Word of God and His complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men.

God

There is one true and living God, who exists as three persons of one individual essence: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. 

Man

Man was created in the image of God, man is born in sin and needs salvation, which is provide through Jesus Christ, the Son of God who restores mankind to God.

Salvation

Salvation is a gift of God made possible by the work of Jesus Christ on the cross and through the conviction of the Holy Spiritand man is a free moral agent who can chose to turn from God at any moment and upon death receive the consequences of that sin. 

Church

Is the Body of our Lord; Christ being the Head. Its earthly constituents are all true believers, born again of the Spirit and of the Word, who are living an overcoming Christian life. To the Church, through its members, are delegated the various gifts and offices of the Holy Ghost which are necessary for the successful evangelization of the world and the perfecting of the Body of Christ. This universal, invisible, sanctified Church is the chaste virgin Bride of Christ. It is this Bride for whom Jesus Christ will return, just prior to the Great Tribulation, to catch her away and take her to heaven. ​

Ministry

The Spirit of God calls those He desires to serve as apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers and provides specific gifting that work in such.

Water Baptism

A command of Jesus Christ for believers, which consists of being immersed in water,  is a symbol of belonging to Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.

Spirit Baptism

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God for all believers, is received after salvation and is accompanied by speaking in tongues as the initial sign of being Baptized in the Holy Spirit . ​

Sanctification

 

Sanctification is a definite, yet progressive work of grace, starting at conversion and continues as we walk with Christ.

Communion

The Lord's Supper is a commandment of our Savior, Jesus Christ and is a memorial to His death and resurrection, and is strictly only for Christian believers.

Healing

Divine Healing occurs by the power of God, through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands.  

REsurrectioN  of BELIEVERS

The Bible promises His coming is imminent; when He comes, "The dead in Christ shall 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" (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17). Following the tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of kings and Lord of lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years . ​

CHRIST'S RETURN

We believe the Bible presents the coming of Christ as personal, imminent, pre-tribulational and pre-millennial. We further contend that this position alone admonishes watchfulness, incites holy living, prevents spiritual declension, and provides maximum incentive and motive for urgency and zeal in evangelizing the unsaved. As demonic deception and satanic darkness deepens, we urge our ministers to maintain and proclaim this doctrinal viewpoint as the "blessed hope" of the Church. It is unwise to teach that the Lord will come at some specified time, thereby setting a date for His appearing. It is also unwise to teach, preach or publish visions of numbers and dates which would tend to fix the time of the second coming of the Lord. ​

Hell

The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire, a literal place, and therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the gospel or for repentance.

Tithing

Tithe means tenth of what is received. We recognize the scriptural duty to pay tithes to support the ministry.
