STATEMENT OF FAITH
WE BELIEVE THAT THE BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD, GIVING A TRUE HISTORY OF THE CREATION OF HEAVEN, EARTH AND HUMANITY; AND CONTAINING A CORRECT PROPHECY OF THE AGES TO COME. WE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NO SALVATION OUTSIDE OF WHAT IS TAUGHT IN ITS PAGES.
WE BELIEVE IN ONE GOD IN THREE MANIFESTATIONS:
THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT
1 Timothy 3:16 – And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.(NKJV)
WE BELIEVE THAT SALVATION IS THROUGH THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
1 COR. 15:1-4 – 1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you–unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,
WE BELIEVE THAT THE GOSPEL MUST BE OBEYED
Romans 10:16 – But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “LORD, who has believed our report?”
TO OBEY MEANS TO APPLY THE GOSPEL. IN WHAT WAYS?
Acts 2:38 – Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
A.REPENTANCE AND TURNING AWAY FROM SINS
2 Peter 3:9 – The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
B.BAPTISM IN WATER
Romans 6:4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
C.BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Acts 1:8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
WE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NO OTHER NAME GIVEN UNDER HEAVEN WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED
Acts 4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
WE BELIEVE THAT OUR NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE
Luke 10:20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.
