    Doctrinal Statements

    The Bible is the word of Godand is to be the final source of authority in all matters of faith and

    Inthese last days, Jesus and the Apostles clearly warned us that their would be
    many false prophets and teachings, using the Bible in wrong ways to try to
    prove their points. Every cult has to either disregard the scriptures or
    wrongly interpret them. The Principles of Proper Biblical Interpretation must
    be used to build healthy and solid doctrine in these last days.

    2 Tim. 3:14-16; Hebrews 4:12; 2Peter 1:19-21; Hebrews 1:1-2; Romans 16:25-26; Luke 21:33; John 16:12-15

    There is only one God who isrevealed in a triune nature, God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God
    the Holy Spirit. God can be intimately known by everyone but cannot be fully
    known by anyone because of how great He is.

    Genesis 1:1 “Elohim” the pluralname for God; John 1:1ff; John 14:7-11; Check a Bible concordance to find
    personal attributes for all three members of the Godhead; The concept of God
    being divine nature vs. human nature- we can not comprehend “divine nature” it
    is totally different.


    On the cross, Jesus died forall of our sins, sicknesses, sufferings and shame, because sin had

    condemned us to an eternal Hell just like the Devil and his angels. We were in need of
    redemption that we were unable to accomplish. He then rose bodily from the
    grave and He is available today to provide forgiveness, healing, deliverance
    and restoration according to His time and will for all men as we call upon Him.

    Isaiah 53; Matthew 8:17; Luke 4:18-19

    God the Holy Spirit entersman's heart at the moment of genuine repentance and surrender to Jesus.

    This is our salvation experience that we cannot achieve apart of God’s divine call and
    work in our hearts, but there are many experiences through the filling of the
    Holy Spirit yet to occur in the believer's life. Also the gifts of the Holy
    Spirit should have open and free expression in the context of order and edification
    of others.

    Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 2 Cor.1:20-22; 5:1-5; John 1:10-12; 3:3-8; Ephesians 5:17-21; 1 Cor. 12:4ff

    Man is a sinner by nature andby choice and is in need of God's work of salvation only found

    through faith in Jesus Christ to be in right relationship with God. Apart from this “born-again”
    experience no one will ever see or experience eternity in heaven but will only
    face eternal condemnation as Jesus told us many times in the Gospels. This work
    of salvation is God's work in man and not man's work for God. Man cannot add to
    or take away from God's work in his heart. 

    Romans 5:12ff; Ephesians 2:1-10

    Understanding these abovetruths requires a full understanding of the horrors of just one sin. All sin is
    just as evil and as bad as any other sin, causing us to be separated from God
    and condemned to an eternity in Hell. It also requires a full understanding of
    the depth of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as God in the flesh on the cross.
    Through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, every man has the opportunity to respond
    through repentance and genuine faith to experience eternal salvation.

    John 3:14-18; 1 Jon 5:12;Ephesians 2:1-10; Titus 3:3-8; Matthew25:41; Revelation 20:10-15

    Learning to love God and otherpeople are paramount in the Christian walk and will be

    stimulated and maintained through regular Bible study, prayer, worship, stewardship,
    evangelism, Christian service and fellowship. These are essential Christian
    disciplines for each believer's life. Man's spiritual growth and development is
    a cooperative effort between himself and God, which is basically, man properly
    responding to God's continual work in his heart.

    Matthew 22:34-40; John 15:12-17;1 Cor. 13:1-8; 1 Peter 4:8

    There are two essential ordinancesto be practiced in the church. One is baptism

    (and as the Greek word clearly means is done by full immersion), which is a

    one-time experience of obedience on the part of every person who has

    trusted in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. There is
    no saving or cleansing power in the waters of baptism, it is an action
    demonstrating a person’s faith which they already have expressed to be
    born-again. The second ordinance is communion or what some people refer to as
    the “Lords Supper.” This is to be observed by every believer on a regular basis
    to remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ as well as a
    reflecting on our personal walk with Christ for renewal and recommitment to
    Jesus Christ.

    Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38;8:12,38; 9:10; 10:47,48; 16:33; 18:8 … baptism

    Matthew 26:26-28; Luke 22:19-20; 1Corinthians 10:16; 11:24-31 … communion

    Jesus Christ will return asecond time as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. When He returns, He will
    rapture His church, judge the living and the dead and establish His eternal
