STATEMENT OF FAITH
[Triune name] | [Triunity]
Jesus was and is the Son of God
and is Himself the Almighty God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless
life, performed miracles, died for the sins of the world, rose from the
dead bodily, was seen of men after his resurrection, ascended into
heaven, and will return for His Church at the time of the Battle of
Armageddon and no sooner, therefore we believe in the post-trib
rapture of the Church. We believe that we have dominion in the
Spirit and some measure of dominion in the physical, but only the
visible bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ will fully manifest that dominion.
We believe that all who live godly shall suffer persecution, unto death
if necessary. There will be a literal man of anti-christ, possessed by
Satan, who shall weary the saints of the Most High. The anti-christ
shall be destroyed with the brightness of the literal, visible, bodily
coming of the Lord Jesus Christ at Armageddon.
When Jesus ascended to the right
hand of the Father, He gave unto men the gifts of apostle, prophet,
evangelist, pastor and teacher. GOD IS RESTORING THE OFFICES OF APOSTLE
AND PROPHET TO THE CHURCH IN THIS HOUR to equip all the saints for the
work of the ministry until the universal Church comes to unity in the
faith. This unity requires that all Christians recognize the authority
and receive the ministry of present-day
All have sinned and fall short of
the glory of God.
Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is
essential for personal salvation. You must be 'born
Man can be justified only by faith
in the risen Lord Jesus Christ, apart from works. Water
baptism does NOT save. Church membership does NOT save.
We believe in the doctrine of
baptisms plural: salvation (baptism into Christ), water
baptism in the triune
name, the Lord Jesus Christ (the name of the Father, Son, and Holy
Ghost), and the subsequent experience of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in speaking in tongues,
modern day miracles,
laying on of hands, divine healing,
the availability of deliverance from demon possession for the
non-Christian, and freedom from demon oppression for the believer. We
believe in the present-day manifestations
of all of the charisma gifts as listed in 1Corinthians chapter 12.
We believe in the reality of
heaven, a fiery hell, angels, demons, and our enemy Satan.
We believe in the future resurrection of the saved and the lost. For the Christian, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. The lost will be assigned to Hell and ultimately to the lake of fire. "It is appointed unto men once to die, and then the judgment." [Heb.9:27] (Purgatory does not exist.)
