We believe that Jesus Christ was and is the son of God, is God, was born of a virgin, was crucified for the sins of mankind severally, was resurrected on the third day, ascended into the third heaven, and is coming back soon to rule and reign for evermore.
We believe that as the result of the fall of Adam, we are by nature sinners, dead in trespasses and sin. We can be only justified by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross, to receive redemption through his blood alone.
There is only one God eternally existing in three distinct persons (or parts), each part absolute Deity: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. In other words, we do NOT believe in three gods, but in ONE God made up of three parts (Body, Soul, and Spirit). (1 John 5:7-8) (Dt. 6:4 Ps. 90:2; Mt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; Jn. 1:1; 20:17; Rom. 8:9; 9:5; Heb. 1:8; Acts 5:3-4).
God is Spirit, and was made manifest in the flesh for the primary purpose of having all mankind have the saving knowledge of Jesus the Christ (Yeshua HaMashiach) (Jn. 4:24; 1:14; 20:17; Rom. 4:11; 1 Pet. 1:3-5, 8-9).
Jesus Christ, is truly God and truly Man. All things were created by Him. He was incarnated the only Son of the Father born of a virgin by the Holy Spirit. He came in the flesh, lived a sinless life, shed His blood and died on a cross as an atonement for the sins of the whole world, was bodily resurrected, ascended into heaven and is now exalted as Head of the Church at the right hand of the Father (Phil. 2:5-11; Col. 1:16; Mt. 1:18-25; Heb. 4:15; 1 Jn. 2:2; Heb. 7:26; Eph. 5:23; Rom. 8:34).
The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, indwells us who have been regenerated, guides us into all truth, enables us to live holy lives, bestows spiritual gifts, and endues with power (Jn. 16:8-9,13; 1 Cor. 2:12-14; Eph. 3:16; Acts 9:31; Rom. 8:5-14; 1 Cor. 12:11; Acts 1:8; 6:8; 1 Cor. 2:4-5).
Every word of the Scriptures in both the Old and the New Testament in the original autographs was inspired by God, written without error. The Scriptures are the complete, final written authority by which we live, namely the King James Version (KJV). (Ps. 19:7-9; 119:89; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; 3:15-16).
Man was created by God in His image with body, soul, and spirit. Adam, the first man, sinned by disobedience incurring spiritual death and, later, physical death. Every person born since, except the Man Christ Jesus, inherited a sinful nature, unable to reconcile himself to God (Gen. 1:26-27; 2:7; 1 Thes. 5:23; Gen. 2:17; 3:6, 22-24; 5:5; Rom. 3:10-12, 23; 5:12; 6:23; 8:7).
Salvation is by grace through faith alone, which comes from God. Salvation has been provided through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and no one is saved and given eternal life except through Him. Repentance and faith leading to salvation are granted to the elect (Eph. 2:5, 8-9; Acts 4:12; 1 Jn. 5:11-12; Jn. 15:19; Acts 5:31; 11:18; 13:48; 16:14; 2 Tim. 2:25; Rom. 8:27-30; 9:8-14; Eph. 1:4-5,11).
We believe in the scriptural mode of Water Baptism by immersion, which signifies a believer who has fully repented of their sins, having turned from their sins and a love of the world and confessed Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. [Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 1:9-10, Acts 10:48, Acts 16:30-34, Romans 6:3-8]
We believe in partaking of Holy Communion, which is done by eating the bread and drinking the wine which symbolically represents when Jesus gave His body and shed His blood so that we might be forgiven of our sins. [Matthew 26:26-28, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, 10:16]
The Lord Jesus will come again from heaven, personally, bodily and visibly (Mt. 24:30; 25:31-33, 41, 46; Jn. 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thes. 1:10; Rev. 1:7).
There will be a bodily resurrection of every person who has died. Everyone will be judged by Christ. After the Judgment the saved will experience eternal joy and blessedness, and the unsaved will experience everlasting torment and punishment with Satan (the Adversary) and his demons in the eternal Lake of Fire (Mt. 25:46; Jn. 5:28-29; Rom. 2:5-10; Phil. 3:20-21; Rev. 14:9-11; 19:20; 20:10-15).
“Father, I know that I have broken Your laws and my sins have separated me from You. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward You. Please forgive me, and help me turn away from sin. I believe that Your Son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
(This is a suggested prayer. This is not a ritual based on specific words, but rather a prayerful guideline for your sincere step of faith.)
