INSPIRATION OF THE SCRIPTURES: The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God (II Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Thess 2:13; II Peter 1:21).
ONE TRUE GOD IN THREE PERSONS: There is one true God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deut 6:4; Isa. 43:10, 11, Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22).
DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST: The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth (Matt. 1:23), His sinless life (Heb. 7:26), His miracles (Acts 10:38), His vicarious and atoning death (II Cor. 5:21), His bodily resurrection (I Cor. 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Phil. 2:9-11), and His personal return to this earth in power and glory (I Thess. 4:15-18).
SALVATION BY GRACE: The only means of being cleansed from sin is through grace and faith in the completed work of Christ of His death, burial, and resurrection. (Rom. 10:13 15; Titus 2:11; Eph. 2:8).
HOLY SPIRIT'S INITIATION: Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (Eph. 4:24; Rom. 8:16; I Cor.12:3; Jer.3:5).
DIVINE HEALING: The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer (Isa 53:3,4; Matt. 8:16, 17; James 5:14-16).
BAPTISM WITH THE SPIRIT: The baptism in the Holy Spirit is for all believers, according to Acts 2:4, and the full expression of the gifts of the Spirit is operable in believers through faith.
WHOLENESS: Believers are postionally and legally right with God through faith in Christ. The sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit indwelling the Christian provides emotional healing and maturity through a process (Rom. 12:1-2; I Thess. 5:23; I Peter 1:15-16).
CHURCH: The church is the eternal purpose of God and serves as the instrument to spread the kingdom of God thoughtout the earth by the preaching of the gospel and the transformation of the nations. We embrace all five gifts of Ephesians 4:11 as being active and operative in the Church today. We believe through Christ the fulfillment of the promise to Abraham is realized in the new creation made up of both Jews and Gentiles as one new body (Eph 2:11-22; 3;11; Gal 3:7-9; 3:16; 5:15-16).
SECOND COMING: We believe the kingdom of God is active in the earth today and continues to increase to fill the whole earth until Christ literally and physically returns for a mature church. We believe there will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost when Christ returns, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation (Rev. 20:11-15; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15).
