We believe in one GOD, the FATHER, the ALMIGHTY, maker of heaven and earth, of all seen and unseen, and in the eternal Godhead who has revealed HIMSELF as one GOD manifest in the FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT, distinguishable but indivisible.
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD.Deuteronomy 6:4
Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is in one else.Isaiah 45:22
Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.Galatians 3:20
We believe in one LORD, JESUS CHRIST, the only SON of GOD, eternally begotten of the FATHER, GOD from GOD, LIGHT from LIGHT, true GOD from true GOD, begotten not made, one in Being with the FATHER. Through HIM all things were made. For us men and for our salvation HE came down from heaven; by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT HE was born of a Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake, HE was crucified under Pontius Pilate; HE suffered, died and was buried. On the third day HE rose again in fulfillment of the scriptures; HE ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the FATHER. HE will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and HIS kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Divine Inspired written word of GOD, The Holy Scriptures, the accepted Canon of Scriptures, as being the infallibly supreme authority on all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in the HOLY SPIRIT who proceeds from the FATHER and the SON and who is our Helper and Comforter, who abides with us forever, even the SPIRIT of truth who teaches us all things and brings to our remembrance, all the words of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. Also in the present work of the HOLY SPIRIT to convict men and women of their sin and their great need of salvation through the LORD JESUS CHRIST, to be reconciled to the FATHER, GOD ETERNAL.
We believe in one Holy Universal Church which is the body of CHRIST to which all true believers belong and which acknowledges HIS divine headship, recognises HIS presence through the HOLY SPIRIT and regulates its practices according to the Holy Scriptures, composed of many local churches in given localities, exercising self government under CHRIST and fulfilling CHRIST’S commission to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world.
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins and become Born Again (John 3:3)
We believe in the operation of the Gifts of the SPIRIT in this present day (1 Corinthians 12-14,) as manifested in the Early Church.
We believe in the SPIRIT filled life, a life of separation from the base things of the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of GOD as expressing the true Christian’s faith.
We believe in the healing of the body by divine power in this present day, known as divine healing in its various aspects as was also practiced in the Early Church.
We believe in the table of the LORD, commonly called Communion, or the LORD’S Supper, for believers.
We believe in the reality and personality of the devil and eternal judgment in the lake of fire for the devil and his angels.
We believe that Government is ordained of GOD, and the powers that be are ordained of GOD to us for good. To resist the powers and the ordinance is to resist the ordinance of GOD. We are subject not only for wrath sake, but for conscience sake, rendering to all their dues, custom to whom custom and honor to whom honor. We declare loyalty to our Government and its leaders and will assist in every way possible providing it is consistent with the Christian faith as set out in Scripture.
We look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, with the expectation of the personal, visible return of the LORD JESUS CHRIST in power and glory.
