Foundations of Faith

Foundations of Faith

The Scriptures

The Bible is the inspired, infallible, revealed will of God. (Tim. 3:15-17; Heb. 4:12; I Peter 1:23-25)

One True God

A triune being, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Dt. 6:4; Mark 12:29)

The Salvation of Man

The shed blood of Jesus Christ, grace through faith, believing in the heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confessing that with the mouth, will result in man’s salvation. (Rom. 3:24; 10:8-10; Eph. 2:8)

Water Baptism

An ordinance of the Church symbolizing that one has died with Jesus and has been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. Baptism is by immersion and is only for those who have received Jesus Christ as Lord. (Matt. 28:19; Acts 10:47, 48; Rom. 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper

An ordinance of the Church symbolizing the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ as the new covenant between God and man. (I Cor. 11:23-32)

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit

A fulfillment of the promise of the Father accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance; for the purpose of spiritual power in public testimony and service after the New Birth. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8, 2:4, 10:44-46, 19:1-6)

The Church

The Body of Christ, the home of God through the Spirit. Each believer born of God’s Spirit is an integral part of the general assembly and Church of the Firstborn which is written in heaven. (Eph. 1:22, 2:19-22; Heb. 12:23)

Women in the Ministry

Women are a part of the one Body of Christ which is neither male nor female with gifts differing according to the grace that is in them. (Acts 18:24-36, 21:8,9; Gal. 3:28; Rom. 12:4-6)

Total Prosperity

Spiritual: John 3:3; II Cor. 5:17-21; Mental: II Tim. 1:7; Rom. 12:2; Isa. 26:3; Physical: Isa. 53:4,5; Matt. 8:17; I Peter 2:24; Financial: III John 2; Mal. 3:10,11; II Cor. 9:6-10; Social: Proverbs 3:4

The Translation of the Church

We’re awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the great God and Savior Jesus Christ to come and get His Church. (Titus 2:13; I Thess. 4:14-18)

The Lake of Fire

All who do not accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior will spend eternity in the lake of fire. (Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15)
