We believe in One God. God the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth. We believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and buried: He ascended into Heaven and sat down at right hand of God the Father Almighty: from thence, He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. We believe in the Holy Ghost: The Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.
The Table accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all-sufficient direction of our faith and practice, that the Scriptures are the inspired Words of God, a revelation from God to man, that is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (II Timothy 3:15- 3:17; I Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12).
Salvation of Humans
PROCESS OF SALVATION: Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners from the practice and punishment of sin. Faith in Jesus Christ as the true Son of God: dead, buried, and raised from the dead, is the only means of salvation, for there is no other name under Heaven whereby we must be saved. The person or individual who believes in Christ will firmly believe that the Lord has been raised from the dead and will confidently confess with his mouth that Jesus is his Lord (John 3:16-17; I Corinthians 15: 1-4; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-13).B)
EVIDENCE OF SALVATION: The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is his love toward all men (John 13:35).
Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ (immersion) shall be observed as commanded in the Scriptures, by all who have truly repented of their sins and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they enter into the New Covenant and declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. We baptize by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Acts 10:44-48; Romans 6:3-4; Acts 8:35-38).
The Lords Supper
The Lords Supper is to be celebrated as a memorial of the atoning death our Lord Jesus Christ, consisting of the elements: bread and the fruit of the vine. The bread is a symbol of the broken body of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which we are healed. The fruit of the vine is a symbol of the shed blood of our Lord Jesus, by which we receive forgiveness of sins. The Lord’s Supper is enjoyed on all believers “until He comes“ (John 6:48, 51, 53-58; Luke 22:19-20; I Peter 2:24; I Corinthians 11:26).
The Baptism of The Holy Spirit
Also called: "The Promise of the Father". All believers are encouraged to earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in early Christian church. When experienced, you receive an endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. Luke 24:49;
I Corinthians 12:11-31; Acts 2:38-39. This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. Acts 10:44-46; Acts 8:12-17.
Healing from sickness - whether physical, psychologically, or spiritually is provided through the atonement of Jesus' sacrifice and is the privilege of all believers.
Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; Peter 2:20-24.
Prayer for the sick is provided for in the New Testament
The Church is the most powerful force on planet earth. The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the body of Christ, whose names are written in Heaven (Ephesians 1:20 23; 2:18-22; Hebrews 12:23).
The scriptures teach a life of holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command, “Be Ye Holy, for I am Holy.“ Entire sanctification is the will of God for all believers and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word (Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15-16;
I Thessalonians 5:23-24; I John 2:5-6).
New Heaven & New Earth
We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwells righteousness (II Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1).
