Our Beliefs are Bible Based and Are Rooted in Kingdom Principles.
We believe in the Lord God Almighty, the author and creator of all things.
We believe that there are three that bare record in Heaven: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost (1 John 5:7). They operate as one bearing witness of the Father. Jesus Christ is the Image of God and creator of all things. He is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end (Isaiah 9:6, St. John 14:8-11, Revelation 1:8; 1 John 5:6-8). We are to receive our salvation by faith: Repentance (Mark 1:14-15, Acts 3:19); Justification (Romans 5;1-9, Romans 10:8-13); Born Again (John 3:3-18, I Peter 1:22-23); Reconciliation ( Titus 3:5-7, 2 Cor 5:17-21). Holy Ghost.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, as it was on the Day of Pentecost. We believe that those who receive the Holy Ghost will speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gives utterance. Further, we believe in how the first recipients were instructed to tarry for the initial outpouring. But since then this gift is freely given through the “laying on of hands” and teaching of the Gospel. We believe that this gift is for all that would believe and receive (Acts 2:38-39, Acts 10:43-46, Acts 19:5-6, Titus 3:5-6).
We believe that sanctification is a work of grace and that it begins with the reconciliation by the application of the blood of Jesus. (Hebrews 13:12, Romans 5:6-9, 1 John 1:7,). We understand that sanctification means to make holy or to set apart for God which is the work of the Holy Spirit. (St. John 17:17-19, 1 Thess.5:22-23).
We believe water baptism to be a biblical ordinance administered to Jesus Christ by John the Baptist. This was practiced by the Apostles in obedience, to the Commandments of Jesus Christ. Baptism signifies being buried with Christ and it openly announces this new relationship to the world. It denotes being totally submerged in water, whether it be a natural or a man-made body of water. We also believe in christening infants as we dedicate them to God. We do not consider this to be Baptism because they are not mature enough to accept Jesus as their Savior.
We believe in justification by Faith according to Romans 5:1-9. We believe that Jesus shed his blood to sanctify the people according to Hebrews 13:12, Romans 6:6, I Thessalonians 5:22-23, and St. John 17:19. We are spirit beings that have a soul and live within a temporary body. Therefore, our faith must be in the Word of God, which is spirit and life, rather than the natural things which are carnal and unstable (Romans 10:8-11, 17, 2 Corinthians 4:17-18, and John 6:53).
We believe that Godly living should characterize the life and work of all saints according to the patterns and examples of Jesus Christ and the Apostles. We believe that we must cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and perfecting holiness in the fear of God (2 Peter 1:3-8, Romans 8:5-9, Galatians 5:13-26, 1 Peter 1:16). Holiness is not centered around our outward appearance, but surrounded around our hearts as we constantly seek to reverence God, however the outward appearance should reflect the glory of God that surrounds our hearts (2 Corinthians 6:15-18, 7:1).
We believe in administering the Lord’s Supper. We identify with Christ’s death and resurrection by partaking of the blessed sacraments, the Bread and the Cup (1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Luke 22:17-20). The Lord’s Supper shall, wherever and whenever possible, be administered by none except an ordained Elder who is in good standing with the organization.
We believe in divine healing. It is the saint’s fight to trust the Lord for their healing when they are sick. We believe in the laying on of hands as Jesus himself did, and as the Apostles practiced it according to James 5:14-16. A person may also receive healing by having faith in the Word of God (Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 8:16-17, I Peter 2:23-24). We also use other instruments that assists our healing such as proper eating, exercise, and doctor’s care.
We believe in the works of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ operated in signs and wonders with great powers over the spiritual elements as well as the natural elements (Acts 10:38, John 20:30-31, Matthew 8:23-27, John 11:1-44). Jesus stated that those are risen in Him, shall be able to do what His has done and even greater signs and wonders (John 14:12-14, John 16:24, Matthew 16:18-19, Matthew 21:21-22, Act 19:11-12). We believe that Jesus have called some in the Five-Fold ministry offices as Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Evangelists, and Teachers in order to further equip the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-16, 1 Corinthians 12:27-29). He has also given supernatural gifts, via the Holy Spirit, of revelation, power, and utterance (1 Corinthians 12:1-11, Mark 16:17-18).
This organization believes in women in the ministry according to Acts 2:16-21, Acts 21:8-9, and Romans 16:1-16. The Lord is abundantly distributing His anointing to everyone willing to receive it. We believe that there is a divine order in the ministry and that man is over the woman as is Christ is over the church. ( 1 Cor. 11:3) We believe and recognized that God uses women servants to do His work.
We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to be in 3 events. Jesus taught it, the Apostles preached it, and we, as the saints of God, believe and accept it (Acts 1:11, Acts 3:19-21). We believe that the 1st event is according to 1 Thessalonians 4:13 –18. We admonish all, who have hope in themselves, to purify themselves as He is pure. The 1st event of the Second Coming of Christ is also referred to as a The Marriage with Christ as the Bridegroom and the church as the bride. The saints that meet His approval of being clean and filled with His Spirit will join Him.2 We believe that the 2nd event involves the Great Tribulation according to 2 Thessalonians 2:1-6, Revelation 7:13-14, and Matthew 24:1-51. We that the 3rd event of His Second Coming is concerning the Thousand Year Rule of Christ on the earth according to Revelation 20:1-10 and the White Throne Judgment according to Revelation 20:11-15 and the New Heaven and Earth according to Revelation 21:1-4.
We believe that a Christian should exemplify the works of Christ. As described in the Sermon on the Mount a Christian should strive to have those qualities. (Matthew 5:3-14) Jesus message of love and peace should be our main goal as a believer. When a person accepts Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior he/she becomes a new creature in Christ Jesus. (2 Corinthians 5:17) He/She is now a born again believer. His conduct should show that of a new believer. As he/she grows in Christ his/her conduct should grow also. A Christian should strive to be holy as God is Holy. (1 Peter 1:13-16; Leviticus 11:44-45, 19:2, 20:7). Other qualities that a Christians should strive to have is Galatians 5:22-26, 1 Corinthians 13, Romans 12:9-21, Ephesian 4:26-32).
We believe that a Christian should abstain from those things that show a person of unholy conduct. As believers, we have a new life in Christ and must separate our conduct from the world. (Ephesian 4:21-25; Leviticus 10:10; Ephesians 2:2-3).The believer must not conform to this world but put a difference between holy and unholy. We are commanded to walk by the Spirit and not in the flesh. For if we walk in the Spirit we will not fulfill the lust of the fresh (Galatians 5:16-17). Those things that are of the flesh we must abstain from such as adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like (Galatians 5:19:21, 1 Corinthians 6:8- 10).
We believe our fight is not with mankind, but with Satan and his kingdom. We believe that the works of Satan are an abomination to God and are forbidden. We believe that some of these works involve the activities in secret societies, cults, occults, and their practices. We believe that that there are secret societies and lodges that are under Satan’s influence (Matthew 5:34-37, James 5:12, II Corinthians 6:14-18). We believe that any religion that doesn’t acknowledge that Jesus Christ, as the son of God and the only Savior, is a cult religion (II Corinthians 6:14-18, 2 Peter 2:1-2, 1 John 4:1- 3, 2 John 1:7-11, Galatians 1:6-9). We believe that the practice of occult activity and seeking help from some such is an abomination unto the Lord (Exodus 22:20, Deuteronomy 17:2-4, Isaiah 8:16- 20, Jeremiah 27:8-11, Zechariah 10:1-2, Act 8:9-11, 17-24, Acts 16:16-18, Revelation 9:20-21, Revelation 18:23).
Believe in according to the scriptures that a marriage is a bond between a Man (male) and a woman (female) (Genesis 1:27-28; Genesis 2:21-25). We believe that same sex marriages, homosexuality, lesbianism, incest, bestiality, and such like is an abomination to the Lord. We also believe that any and all sexual relationships outside the marriage (fornication and adultery) is sinning against our body, which is the temple of Holy Spirit. (Leviticus 20:10-21; Romans. 1:18-32; Galatians 5:19-21) Such persons violating these ordinances shall be prohibited from holding any offices and ministering in any capacity in this organization or any of its churches.
