THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST

REDEMPTION OF MAN, SALVATION

We believe man is created in the likeness and image of God (both male and female). But, through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world and passed upon all men. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God. Man's only hope of redemption and a relationship with God, is salvation through Jesus Christ. Salvation is the free gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and is available to all who will receive it. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

FURTHER WORKS OF REDEMPTION

The death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ not only secured the eternal redemption from sin, but also redemption from sickness and disease and redemption from poverty and lack. Divine Healing has been provided for by the Atonement. It is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through various methods and means detailed within the Word.Divine healing is included in the Redemption and active today through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ. It is the will of God and available for every person. Divine Prosperity has also been provided by the Atonement. True prosperity not only has to do with financial provision but a prospering of the soul as well. It is wrought by the power of God through the principle of tithes and offerings, sowing and reaping and numerous stewardship truths found throughout the Word.

ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, Head of the Church, established two ordinances for the Church to follow: Water Baptism and Communion. Baptism in water, by full immersion,in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, on the authority of Jesus’ name,is a direct commandment of our Lord. While it is not necessary for salvation, it is for all believers. This ordinance is an outward sign of an inward work. It symbolizes a believer's identification with Jesus in His death, burial and resurrection. The ordinance of Holy Communion is a commandment of the Lord Jesus that must be received consistently until His return. Only believers can come to the Table of the Lord, which consists of the bread and the cup. The bread speaks of His body, which was broken for us. The cup speaks of His blood that was shed for us. Both elements are witnesses of the New Covenant believers now enjoy while prophetically declaring His soon return.

BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. He is co-equal, co-eternal, and co-existent with the Father and with the Son. His ministry upon the earth is to convict and convert man as well as be the great Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener and Standby to the Church. The baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus to all believers and is received subsequent to and in addition to the New Birth. The initial evidence of speaking with other tongues, as well as other manifestations described in Acts 2, accompanies this experience. The Holy Spirit empowers the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God's will. Also, with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit comes the endowment of power, ability, efficiency, and might for life and service.

THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12, are available, relevant, and active in the body of Christ today (word of wisdom, word of knowledge, discerning of spirits, faith, gifts of healings, working of miracles, prophecy, tongues, interpretation of tongues). These gifts, manifestations of the Holy Spirit, (special endowments of supernatural energy and extraordinary power, operating in believer’s by the Holy Spirit), are given for the good of all.

HELL

We believe the Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Jesus Christ. God's desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth.

JESUS’ RETURN AND THE MILLENNIAL REIGN

We believe in the Christian's hope, the soon-coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus promised to return for His church. Scriptures tell us that when Jesus returns, the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we, which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. Immediately after this catching away of the saints, the Tribulation period, spoken of in Revelation, will begin. Following the Tribulation, Jesus shall visibly return to earth, accompanied by the saints, to set up His Kingdom on the earth. He shall reign with His saints on the earth for a thousand years, during which time Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit. After this 1,000-year period, Satan will be loosed for a short time, ending in his eternal torment in the lake of fire while the Great White Throne Judgment occurs for those who never received the Lord in their earthly lifetime. Then the new heavens and the new earth will be revealed and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
