We believe that God is the eternal, omnipotent, and Trinitarian Being; Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; that this triune God created the Heavens and the earth, and all that in them is, visible and invisible; that He sustains, protects, and governs these with gracious regard for the welfare of man to the glory of His Name.
We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of our movement, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.
We believe that God, the Father, through the gift of His only begotten Son, provided redemption for man lost through the fall of Adam; that Christ, the Son, was conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of Mary; that He was crucified, died, and was buried; that He rose again, ascended to the Father; and that He became the Savior of the world through the merits of His atoning blood.
We believe the Holy Ghost reproves the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He seals, empowers, comforts, and guides the believer. We believe that the Holy Bible, the Old and the New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God, and that it is the final authority for faith and practice.
We believe that the work of Calvary is made effective to the believer through justification (forgiveness of committed sin), and the sanctification (heart cleansing and empowerment); and that the work of grace thus wrought in the heart will effect a transformation of life and practice.
We believe that the general ordinances, namely believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper, are enjoined in the Word of God and should be observed in church life and practice.
We believe that the Scripture teaches that Christians should not be conformed to this world; that they should demonstrate the spirit of Christian love; that , subject to a prior loyalty to the World of God, it is their duty to be obedient to the government under which they live; and that through their testimony and conduct they should be constant and effective witness for the Lord. Jesus Christ will come again to the earth -- personally, visibly and bodily -- to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to disciple men of every nation. The fulfillment of that Great Commission requires that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to "Him who loved us and gave Himself for us."
Giving help to the needed and hope to the hopeless.
