Beliefs

 

The Bible
 
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. We believe the Bible is the utmost authority on salvation and how to live a Christ-like life.
 
God
 
There is only One God (Deut. 6:4, Is. 45:5, 18, Is. 46:9). This One God manifested himself in the flesh in order to save the World (John 1:1, 14). He is referred to as the Father for He created all things. 
 
Jesus
 
Jesus is called the Son of God. God brought him into existence through the womb of a human therefore He is called the son of God "according to the flesh". "According to the Spirit" He is God. God enrobed himself in this flesh; this was the purpose of this flesh....to house the Spirit of the One True God In order to be the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the World. (John 14:8-11)
 
The Holy Spirit
 
The Holy Spirit is  the Spirit of God. God is no longer here in the flesh but rather fills us with His Spirit if we allow Him. The Bible refers to this as the "Gift of the Holy Ghost" (Acts 2)
 
Salvation
 
New Testament Salvation consists of "The Death, The Burial & The Resurrection" of Christ, this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are able to partake of this through Repentance (Death), Baptism (Burial) and the infilling of the Holy Spirit (Resurrection) which is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues. We know that without Salvavtion no man can "see the Kingdom of God" (John 3:5)
 
The Plan of Salvation (Acts 2:38)
 
  • Repentance (Acts 17:30)
 
Repentance is where humanity realizes that they have sinned, confesses those sins and asks God to forgive them for those sins. The truly repentant turns away from those sins with no intentions to return back to them. It is a resolution to forsake those things that are morally wrong in the eyes of God
 
  • Baptism (Water - John 3:5)
 
Baptism according to the Word of God must be administered in the name of Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:19 let's us know that the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost is "One Singular" Name, Acts 2:38 reveals to us that the name is "Jesus Christ
 
The word Baptism means to Immerse therefore one must be immersed in the name of Jesus in order for their sins to be washed away.
 
  • Infilling of the Holy Spirit (Spirit - John 3:5)
 
The Infilling of the Holy Spirit is when God's Spirit comes to live inside of you, this experience is evidenced by the speaking with other tongues (Acts 2, Acts 10:46, Acts 19:6)
 
Living a Godly Life
 
Once the believer receives the plan of salvation then they should live a Godly lifestyle. Old things behind them and new things ahead (2 Cor. 5:17)
 
The Second Coming of Christ
 
One day Jesus Christ will return for His bride and take His followers to live with Him for eternity in Heaven (Mark 13:26-27)
