Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe: 1. We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the only infallible guide and rule of faith and conduct. 2. We believe there is one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 3. We believe that Jesus Christ came into the world to reveal the Father and to take away sin, and destroy the works of the devil, and that He was the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, that Jesus Christ is the creator of all things, for by Him the worlds were made. 4. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. 5. We believe Jesus Christ will return to earth as Savior and Lord imminently. Mankind will be resurrected bodily, the saved to eternal happiness and security with God, and the unsaved to everlasting punishment in hell. 6. We believe since man is unable to save himself, salvation comes by grace alone received through faith in Christ as Savior on the basis of Godly repentance. 7. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. 8. We believe the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a definite experience subsequent to conversion provided by the Lord for every believer for purposes of Christian witness, holiness, and edification. An evidence of this experience is the speaking in tongues as empowered by the Holy Spirit. 9. We believe divine healing, provided for in the atonement, is available to mankind in every age and is granted according to God ƒ‚ ‚’s will in answer to believing prayer. 10. We believe the great commission of Christ is literal and imperative today. To carry out a program of world evangelism is both the duty and supreme privilege of the church. 11. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers of all denominations in our Lord Jesus Christ. As the Holy Spirit resides within the members of the corporation shall through its members in ministry to the Body of Christ demonstrate at various times and places the five-fold ministry to the Body give for its growth and maturity as stated in Ephesians 4:11-13, and that such ministry shall include but not be limited to: 1. Apostolic in the encouragement, establishment, and maintenance if independent, local, sovereign, indigenous and autonomous churches and other works, associations, fellowships and bodies of believers, and; 2. Evangelistic in the preaching of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the lost, and in the laboring in the fields white to harvest as stated in John 4:35 for the conversion of the lost, and; 3. Prophetic in the bringing forth of a word, message, wisdom, understanding, counsel or knowledge from the Lord Jesus Christ to edify, exhort and console the brethren and to admonish the unruly. 4. Pastoral in the shepherding of the flock of God in various places throughout the world, seeing to their growth, development, protection and bringing forth of fruit in the Body of Christ, and; 5. Teaching the brethren the basic doctrines of our Lord Jesus Christ as stated in Hebrews 6:1-2 and ministering accurately the Word of God as stated in 2 Timothy 2:15 so it may be profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness that the hearers may become adequately, equipped for every good work as given in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, and experiencing a renewal of the spirit and of the mind as given in Ephesians 4:20-24, and realizing the fullness of what Jesus Christ has accomplished for the believers in making them new creations as given in 2 Corinthians 5:17, having as a corporate goal in such instruction: love as stated in 1 Timothy 1:5.
