Beliefs Of Church
These statements are to be considered as the minimum beliefs of the members of the church.
1. The Bible
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation of God to man, which contains the entire Word of God, beside which there will be no revelation. It is superior to tradition, though it may contain tradition; it is above conscience and reason although it is not contrary to reason.
2. One God
There is one God, eternal omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, self-sufficient, one who has manifested Himself as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Jesus is God manifest in the flesh. God is incarnate and is called the Son of God in human relationship.
4. Man’s Fall and Redemption
Man was created in the image of God, but by exercise of his own will, he transgressed the Will of God and fell in sin. His only hope of redemption is through Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
A. Conditions of Salvation – The conditions of salvation are repentance for sins, faith in the saving grace of Jesus which leads to evidence of this faith, without such evidences, the faith is not effectual.
B. Evidences of Saving Faith – Saving faith is evidenced by water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus and by a life lived in harmony with the principles of God’s Word. [Acts 2:38, Acts 10:47, Romans 6:4]
C. The Holy Ghost – the baptism of the Holy Ghost is promised by God to all who repent and believe. It is evidenced by the speaking in unknown (or unlearned) tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. [Acts 2:4, Acts 10:44-46, Acts 19:2-6]
