Articles of Faith

Article One

We believe there is but one living and true God everlasting, of infinite

power, wisdom and goodness; Maker and Preserver of all things, both

visible and invisible. And in the unity of this Godhead there are three

Persons of one substance of eternal being, and equal in holiness, justice,

wisdom, power, and dignity; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

Article Two

We believe that the Son, who is the Word of the Father, the very and eternal

God, of one substance with the Father, took man's nature in the womb of a

virgin; so that two whole and perfect natures, that is to say, the Godhead and

the manhood were joined together in one Person, never to be divided,

whereof is one Christ, very God and perfect man, who actually suffered, was

crucified, dead, and buried, to reconcile the Father to us, and to make

atonement, not only for our actual guilt, but also for original sin.

Article Three

We believe that Christ did truly rise again from the dead, and took again His

body, with all things appertaining to the perfections of man's nature, and

ascended into heaven and there sits until He shall return to judge all men at

the last day.

Article Four

We believe the Holy Ghost, proceeding from the Father and the Son, is of

one substance, majesty and glory with the Father and the Son, very and

eternal God.

Article Five

We believe in the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures,

known as the Bible, composed of sixty-six books and divided into two

departments, Old and New Testaments. We believe the Bible is the Word of

God, the full and complete revelation of the plan and history of redemption.

Article Six

We believe that eternal life with God in heaven is a portion of the reward of

the finally righteous; and that everlasting banishment from the presence of

the Lord and unending torture in hell are the wages of the persistently

wicked (Matthew 25:46; Psalm 9:17; Revelation 21:7-8).

Article Seven

We believe that Jesus Christ shed His blood for the remission of sins that are

past, for the regeneration of penitent sinners, and for salvation from sin and

from sinning (Romans 3:25; 1 John 3:5-10; Ephesians 2:1-10).

Article Eight

We believe, teach, and firmly maintain the scriptural doctrine of justification

by faith alone (Romans 5:1).

Article Nine

We believe that Jesus Christ shed His blood for the complete cleansing of

the justified believer from all indwelling sin and from its pollution,

subsequent to regeneration (1 John 1:7-9).

Article Ten

We believe in sanctification. While sanctification is initiated in regeneration

and consummated in glorification, we believe that it includes a definite,

instantaneous work of grace achieved by faith subsequent to regeneration

(Acts 26:18; 1 John 1:9). Sanctification delivers from the power and

dominion of sin. It is followed by life-long growth in grace and knowledge

of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:16; 2 Peter 3:18).

Article Eleven

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire is obtainable by a

definite act of appropriating faith on the part of the believer, and the initial

evidence of the reception of this experience is speaking with other tongues

as the Spirit gives utterance (Luke 11:13; Acts 1:5; 2:14, 8-17; 10:44-46;

19:6).

Article Twelve

We believe in divine healing as in the atonement (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew

8:16-17; Mark 16:14-18; James 5:14-16; Exodus 15:26).

Article Thirteen

We believe in the imminent, personal, premillennial second coming of our

Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; Titus 2:13; 2 Peter 3:1-4;

Matthew 24:29-44), and love and wait for His appearing (2 Timothy 4:8).

Article Fourteen

We believe it is the responsibility of every believer to dedicate his life to

carrying out the work of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark

16:15-20; Acts 1:8).
