The Bible was verbally inspired by God in both Old and New Testaments. It is God's revelation of who he is and teaches how he wants us to live for him. The more you believe its pages the more alive the Bible becomes (Exodus 3:6; 2 Tim. 3:16, Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23-25, 2 Peter 1:19-21).
All local churches or ministry organizations that claim Jesus Christ as the Savior, and head of the Church, according to Ephesians 5:23 and Colossians 1:18, are independent and autonomous from any and all earthly powers, to include denominations they fellowship in (Genesis 20:25-28). The Bible, God's Holy Word, is our rule of faith and practice. This independence allows each local ministry to follow the Holy Spirit, who is God working on the earth today, building the Body of Christ.
There is one true living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He is revealed to us in the form of the Holy Trinity comprised of: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Isa. 43:10-11; 44:6; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; John 17:1-5).
Jesus was born of a virgin and is the son of Jehovah God. He is God manifested in the flesh. He is the Christ, the anointed one, by whom we trust for salvation (Luke 1:26-38; John 14:1-3; Acts 2:36, 4:12; Phil. 2:5-11).
The work of the Holy Spirit is to convict men of sin, regenerate those who repent and guide the believer in all truth. He extends his power to us through baptism of the Holy Spirit which results in him indwelling in us. This indwelling gives us gifts to minister Christ to all people and edify the Church. John the Baptist and Jesus promised that baptism of the Holy Spirit would take place. The early church experienced it and the Apostle Paul made sure all believers received it to insure the Holy Spirit would dwell in them (Matt. 3:11; Luke 11:13; John 7:37-39; Acts 1:4-5,8; 2:39-48; 10:44-47; 19:1-6).
Man was created by God and became sinful by nature through the actions of the first man, Adam. We have taken on his natural state of lost and without God (Romans 3:10-12, 23; 5:12; Eph. 2:1-4, 12).
Knowing that we have a sin nature presents the need to do something about sin. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin and causes us to feel guilty. We hear the truths about Jesus Christ and place faith in his death, burial, and resurrection. When we repent of our sin to Jesus Christ we are forgiven of our sin and our sin nature. We are then regenerated by the grace of God toward us and we take on the righteousness of Jesus. The Bible teaches this as being saved. (Acts 2:37-38; 4:12; Romans 3:23; 4:5-6; 5:1-11; 6:23; Eph 1:3-7).
The scriptures teach that Jesus will bodily return to this earth. He will rapture His Church and give judgment to the world (Acts 1:10-11; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Jude 14, 15; Rev. 1:7).
The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is believers who have been baptized in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; who assemble to worship and encourage each other as they carry out the great commission, and minister the work of the Holy Spirit on the earth (Matt. 16:18; 28:18-20; Acts 2:40-47; Eph 5:22-32; Col. 1:18; 1 Tim. 3:15).
Is the act of being immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is symbol of being identified with Jesus Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matt 3:15-16; 28:19-20; Acts 8:38; Romans 6:1-4).
The Lord's Supper is a memorial of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are commanded to continue this ordinance until he returns (Luke 22:13-20; 1Corinthians 11:23-26).
Christianity is not a religion; it is a lifestyle based upon faith where the believer lives a separated life from the world, led by the Holy Spirit, unto the Lord Jesus Christ. This lifestyle exalts the believer to seek their gifts and anointings provided by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is walking in the Spirit of God in such a way we use the Fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-25), the Gifts of the Spirit (1Cor. 12:8-10), and the Armor of God (Eph. 6:10-18) to overcome Satan and his demonic power, while edifying the Body of Christ, which is the Church (Romans 12:1-3; 2Corinthians 6:17; Gal. 6:14; Eph. 5:11; Col. 1:24).
The levels of knowledge and achievement being done in the medical fields are a direct result of God giving mankind knowledge for healing in the natural realm. He has also provided divine healing through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Believers can receive gifts that generates power through the Holy Spirit allowing our faith, prayers, and laying on hands to actually heal sickness, diseases and cast out demonic strongholds (Is. 53:5; Mark 11:23, 16:18; 1 Cor. 12:9; James 5:14-16, John 14:12).
