Statement of Faith


We believe in the inspired, inerrant Word of God given to the prophets and apostles in Hebrew, Chaldean, & Greek. The translation of these languages into English is the most faithfully and honestly adhered to in the *King James Version of the Holy Bible. All other English "Bibles" are tracts at best. Because we believe all of the Bible, we believe the following:


1. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God The Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is one Spirit. His Spirit dwells in the glorified body of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit, which is the Spirit both of the Father and of the Son, dwells in the glorified body of Jesus. However, we do not believe in the false doctrine of "Jesus Only", which says that Jesus is as much of God as we'll ever see, for God can manifest Himself as three persons (not spirits) at sundry times as He so chooses. [Triune name] | [Triunity]

2. Jesus was and is the Son of God and is Himself the Almighty God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died for the sins of the world, rose from the dead bodily, was seen and touched by people after His resurrection, ascended into heaven, and will return for His Church at the time of the Battle of Armageddon and no sooner, therefore we believe in the post-trib rapture of the Church. We believe that we have dominion in the Spirit and some measure of dominion in the physical, but only the visible bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ will fully manifest that dominion. We believe that all who live godly shall suffer persecution, unto death if necessary. There will be a literal man of anti-christ, possessed by Satan, who shall weary the saints of the Most High. The anti-christ shall be destroyed with the brightness of the literal, visible, bodily coming of the Lord Jesus Christ at Armageddon.

3. When Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father, He gave unto men the gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher. The Lord is restoring the ministries of apostle and prophet to His Church in this hour to equip all the saints for the work of the ministry until the universal Church comes to unity in the faith. This unity requires that all Christians recognize the authority and receive the ministry of present-day apostles.

4. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

5. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for personal salvation. You must be 'born again' by turning away [repenting] from your wrong-doing [sins] and by surrendering to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. He can only be your Savior if He is also your Lord.

6. Man can be justified only by grace through faith in the risen Lord Jesus Christ, apart from works. Water baptism does NOT save, nor is it proof of salvation. Church membership does NOT save, hence, worshipping on the Sabbath day is not proof of salvation, neither is speaking in tongues proof of salvation, or necessary for salvation. However, the 'prayer' tongue is available and desired by God for ALL Christians, not just some.

7. We believe in the doctrine of baptisms plural: 1. salvation (baptism into Christ); 2. water baptism in the triune name, the Lord Jesus Christ (the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost); and 3. the subsequent experience of the "upon" baptism with the Holy Spirit and with fire, also known as the overflowing of the Holy Spirit.

8. We believe in speaking in tongues, modern day miracles, laying on of hands, divine healing, the availability of deliverance from demon possession for the non-Christian, and freedom from demon oppression for the believer. We believe in the present-day manifestations of all of the charisma gifts as listed in 1 Corinthians Chapter 12.

9. We believe in the reality of heaven, a fiery hell, angels, demons, and our enemy Satan. There is no annihilation or soul sleep. After physical death the human spirit will have an eternal conscious awareness of either eternal torment for the damned, or everlasting bliss for the saved, therefore,

10. We believe in the future resurrection of the saved and the lost. For the Christian, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. The lost will be assigned to Hell and ultimately to the lake of fire. "It is appointed unto men once to die, and then the judgment." [Heb.9:27] (Purgatory does not exist.)
