John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Introduction

The Bible is inspired Word of God, as written by holy men moved by the Holy Spirit. We also accept the New Testament as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine (2 Timothy. 3: 16; 1 Thessalonians. 2: 13; 2 Peter 1:21)

The Godhead

Our God is one, but manifested in three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit being co-equal. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Philippians. 2:6, John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:8)

Man, His Fall and Redemption

Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that works repentance. The New Birth is necessary for all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life (2 Corinthians. 7:10; John 3:3-5; 1 John 3:8)

Eternal Life and the New Birth

Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that works repentance. The New birth is necessary for all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life (2 Corinthians. 7:10; John 3:3-5; 1 John 5:12)

Water Baptism

Baptism in water is my immersion; it is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39)

Baptism in the Holy Ghost

The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:1-4)

Sanctification

The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of Sanctification definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return (Hebrews 12:14; 1 Thessalonians. 5:23; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 2:12-14)

Resurrection of the Just and Return of our Lord

The angels said to Jesus’ disciples, “…This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17; Revelations 5:10; 20:6)

Hell and Eternal Retribution

The one who physically dies in sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting (Hebrews 9:27; Revelations 19:20)
