​ BELIEFS




Our church and everything that we do is built upon core beliefs.  These beliefs serve as the solid foundation that solidifies our relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and with our fellow believers.


REPENTANCE 

It is the act of turning and forsaking sin. Read Mark 1:15; Luke 13:3; Acts 3:19

JUSTIFICATION 

Justification is a state and an act of being void of an offense toward God. It is an act of God’s forgiveness and transgressions in which one has repented. See Romans 5:1-9; Titus 3:7.

REGENERATION

 It is an act of God performed in the justified heart whereby new spiritual life is generated. See Titus 3:5 Regeneration is simultaneous with the new birth. Also see Matt. 19:28

BORN AGAIN

To be born again is to become a new creature in Christ, and a child of God. This new birth is a result of repentance, justification, regeneration and is accompanied by a definite inner witness. See John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:23 The new birth is a prerequisite for the experience of sanctification.

SANCTIFICATION

Sanctification is the second definite work of grace, an instantaneous work wrought in the regenerated heart by the Holy Ghost with the blood of Christ. The regeneration actual transgressions are forgiven, but in sanctification the Adamic nature, or inbred sin, is eradicated. Sanctification restores man to the holy estate of Adam before the fall, and gives him the grace to live a life of holiness, thus making him eligible for the indwelling of the Holy Ghost. Sanctification is subsequent to justification. See Romans 5: 2; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 

1 Thessalonians 4:3; Hebrews 13:12; 1 John 1: 9.

HOLINESS 

Holiness is the state being free from sin, a condition made possible by the  experience of sanctification. God requires man to live sinless in this present world and provides the means through the shed blood of Christ. See Luke 1: 74; 1 Thessalonians 4:7; Hebrews 12: 14.

WATER BAPTISM 

Water baptism is the act of being immersed in the water according to the instructions of Christ. Although this ordinance has no power to wash away sin, it represents the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. Only those who have already been born again are eligible for water baptism. See Matt 28:19; Mark 1:8-10; John 3:22, 23; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47, 48; 16:23.

BAPTISM WITH THE HOLY GHOST

 The baptism with the Holy Ghost which is subsequent to sanctification is the endearment of power for service. This baptism is always accompanied by eveidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit give utterance. It is the filling of the temple already made clean by sanctification and is a gift of God in answer to the prayer of Christ. Read Matt 3:11, Luke 24: 49-53;  

SPEAKING IN TONGUE

Speaking in tongue as the spirit give utterance is the initial, physical evidence of the baptism of the holy spirit .This is separate from the gift of tongue, which is one of the nine gift of the spirit.Act2:4;

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT  

The Spirit-filled life will  manifest the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. These virtues are divine in origin and spring from a Spirit-filled heart. See Romans 6:22; Galatians 5:22,23;    

 FULL RESTORATION OF THE GIFTS TO THE CHURCH  

The gifts of the Spirit were set in the Church to be operated by the Spirit according to the will of God. They are manifested through individual members. The gifts are given to the Church and not to individuals. These gifts were all operated in the early church and were restored to the church in these last days. See 1 Corinthians 12:1, 7-10, 28, 31; 1 Corinthians 14:1.
