The fundamentals teachings of the Church are reflected in the following statements of faith:

  1. We believe all Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, was given by inspiration of God as the writers were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of God and that the Scriptures are the only rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
  2. We believe in the one true God who has revealed Himself as existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible (Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:21-22)
  3. We believe in the creation, test, and fall of man as recorded in the book of Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain divine righteousness (Romans 5:12, 18).
  4. We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14; 9:6).
  5. We believe Christ died for our sins, was born and rose again on the third day, and personally appeared to his disciples (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25).
  6. We believe in the bodily Ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation and personal, literal, and bodily return the second time for the Church (John 14:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
  7. We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12; Romans 5:11).
  8. We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:36-39; 19:1-6).
  9. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father, for the empowering of the Christian and its accompanying gifts and fruits (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17: 10:44-46; Galatians 3:14).
  10. We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14, as was manifested in the Early Church.
  11. We believe in the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian faith (Ephesians 5:18, 2 Corinthians 6:14; 7:1).
  12. We believe in the healing of the body of Divine Power, or Divine healing in its varied aspects as practiced in the Early Church (Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14).
  13. We believe in the Table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers (1 Corinthians 11:28-32).
  14. We believe in eternal life for believers (John 3:16; 5:24) and punishment for unbelievers (Mark 9:43-58; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15).
  15. We believe in the reality and personality of Satan and the eternal judgment of Satan and his angels (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10-15).
