This body shall accept the holy Scripture as the revealed will of god, the all-sufficient rule for faith and practice and for the purpose of maintaining unity.

This statement of fundamental truths is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us (that we speak the same thing, 1 Corinthians 1:10; Acts 2:42). No claim is made that it contains all Biblical truth, only that it covers our need as to these fundamental doctrines.

Section 1:     The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible authoritative rule of faith and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21.

Section 2:     The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I Am", the creator of heaven and earth and the redeemer of all mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Deuteronomy 6:14; Isaiah 43:10; Exodus 3:14; John 8:58; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22.

Section 3:    The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth is "The Son of God" (Matthew 16:16). Jesus is the only begotten of the Father. Jesus is also "the Son of Man" according to the Holy scriptures, so therefore, we acknowledge Him to be both God and man, because he is (Immanuel), God with us. Matthew 1:23; 1 John 4:2, 10, 14: Revelation 1:13,17; John 1:1-3.

Section 4:    The deity of the Lord Jesus Christ - the Scriptures declare:

            A.  His Virgin Birth. Matthew 12:23; Luke 1:31-35

            B. His sinless life. hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22

            C. His miracles. Acts 2:22; 10:38.

            D. His substitutionary work on the cross. 1 Corinthians 15:3, 2 Corinthians 5:21.

            E. His bodily resurrection from the dead. Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4.

            F. His exaltation to the right hand of God. Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:1-3.

Section 5:    The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God, through the Spirit, with Divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the church of the first born, which are written in heaven. Ephesians 1:22, 23.

Section 6:    The Salvation of Man

            A. The grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of

                 repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. Man is saved by grace through

                 faith. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost he becomes an heir of

                 God according to hope of eternal life. Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:13-15; Titus 3:5-7; John


            B. The evidence of salvation, the inward evidence to the believer, is the direct witness of the

                 Spirit. Romans 8:16; John 14:20. The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness

                 and true holiness. Galatians 5:16-22. 

Section 7:    Baptism of Water

The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ by immersion in water is a command of Jesus Christ according to Matthew 28:19-20. We do not believe that water saves, but that it is evidence of a clear conscience before God. 1 Peter 3:21.

Section 8:    The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is available to those who seek His fullness. Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 9:17-18; 10:44-48; 19:1-6.

Section 9:    The Blessed Hope

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those who are alive and remain, unto the coming of the Lord is imminent and is the blessed hope of the church. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52.

Section 10:    The Millennial Reign of Christ

The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of national "Israel", and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth is the scripture promise and the world's hope. 2 Thessalonians 1:7; Revelation 19:11-14; 20:1-7.

Section 11:    The Final Judgment

There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead shall be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which is the second death. Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8.

Section 12:    The New Heavens and the New Earth

"We according to His promise, look for new heavens and new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." 2 Peter 3:13.
