What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, infallible in it’s original writings. II Tim. 3:16; II Peter 1:21.

We believe in the One ever-living, eternal God, infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; in His absolute deity. That this one true God has revealed Himself as Father in creation; as Son in redemption; and as the Holy Ghost in this church age. That God was manifest in the flesh (Jesus Christ), justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. I Tim. 3:16. That the fullness of deity was revealed and manifest in the Lord Jesus Christ; and that Jesus is the Name of God for this dispensation. I Corinthians 8:6; II Corinthians 5:19; Matthew 1:21; and Ephesians 4:6.

We believe in the fallibility of all mankind. Through the transgression and fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden, all men are declared to be sinners, therefore, in order to be restored to favor with God, all must be born again. John 3:3-5.

We believe in the vicarious suffering of Jesus Christ the Son of God; that through His shed blood, an atonement for sin has been made for all mankind. Isaiah 53:1-12; Matthew 26:28; and Hebrews 9:11-28.

We believe that Jesus Christ was rejected by the world, especially His own nation; was tried and suffered under the hands of Pilate; died on the cross by crucifixion, was buried, rose again the third day; His resurrection being confirmed by many definite proofs. He was seen by many witnesses for about forty days after His resurrection, after which He ascended up on high, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God, there to intercede and advocate for all believers. Hebrews 12:2.

We believe that our present dispensation is a time of  grace, that we are saved by grace through faith, not of works lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:4-10.

We believe that God took away the first (covenant) that He might establish the second (Hebrews 8:6-10, 10:9) and that under this new covenant in this dispensation none of the statutes of the Mosaic Law are binding. “But now are we delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in the newness of Spirit, and not in oldness of the letter” Romans 7:6, “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth” Romans 10:4. “The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the Kingdom of God is preached” Luke 16:16.

Jesus said: “Upon this Rock I will build My church”. We believe that it is a Spiritual house (church) to offer up Spiritual Sacrifices. I Peter 2:5. See John 4:23 and Hebrews 13:15-16.

We believe in and teach Repentance and faith toward God as the first step for the sinner, as there is but on true entrance into the great Spiritual Church, which is the body of Christ. Ephesians 1:22-23. God accepts a sinner only when he repents; therefore Repentance and Remission of sins should be preached in Jesus’ Name. Luke 24:45-47; Acts 2:37-38.

We believe in Water Baptism by immersion, and that it should be administered in the Name of the Lord Jesus, Jesus Christ, or Lord Jesus Christ as practiced by the Apostles. See Acts 2:38, 8:16, 10:48; I Corinthians 1:13; Colossians 3:17.

We believe in and teach the baptism of the Holy Ghost for believers, witnessed by the physical sign of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. Acts 2:4, 10:46, 19:6. This procedure is recognized as being the teaching of the Apostles regarding the New Birth and as placing us as members of the New Testament Church. Acts 2:41, 47; I Corinthians 12:13, 18.

Holiness–Dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God, for God has not called us unto uncleanliness; but unto holiness. Follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. II Corinthians 7:1; I Thessalonians 4:7; Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15-16.

Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is a privilege for believers. As the Lord made our bodies, it is not incredible that He should heal them. Isaiah 53:5; Mark 16:15-18; James 5:14.

We believe the nine gifts of the Spirit should be manifested in the church today, and that all Spirit-filled believers should earnestly covet the best gifts for the edification and up-building of the church. I Corinthians 12:8-11, 14:1

We believe the Spirit-filled believers will produce the fruit of the Spirit in their lives and their walk will be according to godliness and holy living. Galatians 5:22-23; I John 2:6; I Peter 1:16; Titus 2:11-13; II Corinthians 7:1.

Whereas the word Communion expresses Fellowship; we believe in Communion with God through the Spirit as typified in the Shadows of the Old Testament and taught by Jesus and the Apostles in the New Testament. In order to have this Fellowship with God we must be a partaker of the Flesh and Blood of Jesus through the Spirit, as there is no Spiritual Life outside of Him. We believe that the literal emblems of bread and fruit of the vine used at the Passover were shadows of good things to come, and as they were partaking of these emblems Jesus said, “This is MY BODY, which is broken for you,” and This is MY BLOOD which is shed for the remission of sins”. (Matthew 26:17-29; Mark 14:12-25; Luke 22:1-20; I Corinthians 11:23-27) That since Christ, our Passover is sacrificed for us (I Corinthians 5:7), the Passover instituted at the time of the exodus of Israel from Egypt (Exodus 12) is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God. “The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost”. (Romans 14:17) When we are all baptized into the one body by the Holy Ghost we are made to drink of the one Spirit. (I Corinthians 12:13) So then, the cup of Blessing which we bless is the Communion (fellowship) of the Blood of Christ and the bread which we break is the Communion (fellowship) of the Body of Christ. (I Corinthians 10:16) For we being many, are one bread and one body; for we are all partakers of that one bread. (I Corinthians 10:17) Hence, we believe in partaking of  “the flesh and the blood of the Lord THROUGH THE SPIRIT  as referred to by the scripture. (John 6:48-63) We hold then, that partaking of natural, or literal elements, is not essential  to our Salvation, and therefore, refrain from partaking thereof; but with due Christian courtesy, we respect those who may hold an opposite view.

Since Jesus did not wash the disciples feet in public, in the Temple or Synagogue, and since there is no Scriptural reference to it other than as a common custom, we believe He was giving us an example of Love and Humility. (Luke 22:24-27; John 13:12-15; I Timothy 5:10). Hence: we do not support the practice of washing feet in public as a church ordinance.

We believe in the second personal coming of the Lord as taught by the Scriptures. Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 4:16; Hebrews 9:28.

We believe in the Resurrection of the dead. Job 19:26; Isaiah 26:19; Daniel 12:2; Revelation 20:11-15.

We believe that all will appear before the judgment Seat of Christ to be judged according to the deeds done in the body. Ecclesiastes 12:14; II Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:11-15.

We do not hold that our Salvation is contingent upon keeping of certain days, or times. Romans 14:5-6; Galatians 5:1; Colossians 2:16.

We believe that divorce and remarriage is unscriptural and forbidden, except where fornication (as defined by the Scripture) is proven to be the cause of separation Matthew 19:3-17; I Corinthians 5:1.

We believe in the highest possible standard of moral living, therefore we do not tolerate the Doctrine of Free Love, Spiritual Companionship, Social Purity or any other kindred teachings that might lead to immoral conduct.

We believe that it is possible for those who have been enlightened, and have tasted of the good Word of God to fall from their steadfastness in Christ. (Hebrews 3:12-19; II Peter 3:17) Therefore, the believer is secure from the judgments of God only as he maintains his fellowship with Christ.

We believe in total abstinence from all alcoholic drinks. We believe that the eating of meats referred to by Moses under the Law and the drinking of tea or coffee is not obligatory to our Christian experience. However, anyone may refrain from these things at his or her own discretion, but must not try to impose such personal opinions upon others.

We believe we shall receive our Redeemed Bodies at the Second appearing of our Lord. Romans 8:22-23; I Corinthians 5:1-5; 15:43-55; I Thessalonians 4:16-17.

We believe that war comes from the enemy of mankind and that it is condemned by the Word of God: That if smitten on one cheek, we as Christians should “turn the other also.” (Matthew 5:39; Luke 6:29) Thou shalt not kill (Matthew 5:21) We therefore desire to be loyal to our Government and above all, loyal to God, and since the Scriptures forbid us to kill, we recommend that our members accept the provision offered them by the Laws of our Government which gives them the privilege to register as a conscientious objector to War in Any Form, or to register as an objector to Combat Duty where the bearing of Arms is required.

Finally–We believe in the seven principles of the doctrine of Christ, (Hebrews 6:1-2) with all their connections throughout the New Testament as revealed by the Holy Spirit from time to time.
