Reaching the Unreachable
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. A revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:15-16; 1 Peter 2:2.
We believe in the One God, maker of all things. Exodus 3:14; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 8:58.
We believe that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, became incarnate, was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-35.
We believe all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and are in need of salvation. Romans 3:23. Salvation had been provided through the shed blood of Jesus Christ for all people. Romans 10:13; Luke 24:47. By confessing our sins to God, all will be forgiven and cleansed from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance. Isaiah 33:19; Acts 2:4; Acts 19:5-6; 1 Corinthians 12:10.
We believe in Divine Healing which is provided in the redemptive work of Christ and is available to every believer. Isaiah 53:4; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead, those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord which is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52.
We believe there will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43; Revelation 19:20, 20:11 and 21:8.
We believe in the imminent, personal, premillennial second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18; Matthew 24:29-44.
We believe in water baptism, and the observance of the Lord's Supper. Acts 2:38; Acts 10;47-48; Acts 19:2-5.
We believe in intensive world evangelism and missionary work in obedience to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. Mark 16:15-20; Acts 1:8.
We believe in the manifestations of gifts of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 4:11-12. We believe in the five-fold ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Evangelists and Teachers; the foundation of the Church being the ministry of Apostles and Prophets. These callings are the authority gifts to the Church that the saints might be edified and equipped to do every good work. 1 Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 2:20 and 4:11-13.
