The Scriptures

The Bible is the inspired Word of God.  We accept the New Covenant as recorded in the New Testament.  This is what we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine.  (II Timothy 3:1; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:21).

The Godhead

Our God is one but manifest in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  (Philippians 2:6; Matthew 3:16-17)

Man, His Fall and Redemption

Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God.  Through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God.  (Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23; Romans 3:9,10; I John 3:8; Galatians 3:13-14). Salvation is the gift from God to man, it is separate from works and the law and comes by grace through faith.  (Ephesians 2:8,9)

Eternal Life and the New Birth

The new birth is necessary to all men, and when fulfilled produces eternal life.  (II Corinthians 7:10; I John 5:12,13; John 3:3-5)

The Church

We believe the true Church is comprised of all who have been regenerated by the Holy spirit, through saving faith in Jesus Christ.  We believe that these believers are eligible for membership in the local church.  (Matthew 16:18; I Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25)

Water Baptism

Baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers.  It is a symbol that serves as identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39)

Baptism in the Holy Ghost

The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and Fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to those who are believers in this dispensation and is received after the new birth.  This experience is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance.  (Matthew 3:11; John 14:  16-17; Acts 2:38, 39; Acts 19: 1-7; Acts 2:4).


The Bible teaches that without Holiness no man can see the Lord.  We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace that begins at the time of regeneration and continuing.  (Hebrews 12:14; I Thessalonians 5:23; II Peter 3:18; II Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 3:12-14; I Corinthians 1:30)

Divine Healing

Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and the laying on of hands.  It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and it is the privilege of every member of the body of Christ.  (Mark 16:18; James 5:14-20; I Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:17; Isaiah 53:4-5)

Resurrection of the Just and The Return of our Lord

We believe that the coming of Jesus is imminent.  When he comes, the dead in Christ rise first; then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds.  (Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 4: 16,17)

Hell, and Eternal Retribution

The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or for repentance.  (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 19: 20; Hebrews 6:1, 2; Romans 6: 23; Revelation 21:8)

Communion: The Lord’s Supper and Footwashing

We partake of the Lord’s Supper to show the Lord’s death till he comes.  (I Corinthians 11: 23-31; Isaiah 53: 5; John 13:5-17)

Laying on of Hands

The simple belief that power or anointing or any other necessary quality can be transmitted from one person touching another.  Jesus practiced it in Mark 10: 13-16 as a blessing, and it is our grounds for baby dedications instead of baptism.  Laying on of hands for healing (Mark 5:22, 23, 41; Mark 5: 28 – 31; Acts 28:8; Acts 19: 11, 12). Laying on of Hands to confer office (Acts 6: 2-6); Laying on of Hands to receive the Holy Ghost (Acts 8: 16-18); Laying on of Hands to receive anointing and to consecrate and receive the necessary ministry tools.  (I Timothy 4:14)
