Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith and
by laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ and is the privilege of every member of the Church today.
(Isaiah 53:4,5; Matt. 8:17;Mark 16:18; James 5:14-25; 1 Peter 2:24)

RESSURECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD
The angels said to Jesus disciples, this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into the heaven, shall so come in like
manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. His coming is imminent. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven
with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then
we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall
we ever be with the Lord (1 Thess. 4:16-17) We shall be the priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousands
years. (Revelation 20:6)
HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION
The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire
and, therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The Lake of Fire is literal. The terms eternal;
and everlasting, used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the Lake of Fire carry the same thought
and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of saints in the presence of God. (Heb.
9:27; Rev. 19:20)

Communion is a very important ordinance of the church. We are instructed by the Word of God to receive communion after
a careful examination of yourself. Both the bread and the cup are symbolic. The cup represents the blood of Jesus shed for
the remission of our sins and the bread of which we partake represents the broken body of our Lord.(Matt. 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-25,
1 Cor. 11:23-34, 2 Cor. 13:5a)

Although the word rapture is not found in scripture, its
meaning is. The rapture is something every believer should look forward to. It is the catching away of the saints to meet
the Lord in the air. (1Thess. 4:15-18; 1 Cor.15:51-54)

The Bible is the inspired Word of God the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy
Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, is accepted as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct
and doctrine.(2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)
Our God is one but manifested in three persons the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit being co-equal. (Matt. 3:16-17,Phil.
2:6) God the Father is greater than all; the sender of Word (Logos) and the Begetter. ( John 14:28; 16:28; 1:14) The Son is
the Word made flesh, the one Begotten, and has existed with the Father since the beginning.( John 1:1; 14 & 18) The Holy
Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal.( John 15:26)
MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION
Man is a created being in the likeness and image of God, but through Adams transgression and fall sin came into the world.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.(Romans 3:23) As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.
(Romans 3:10) Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the works of the devil. He gave His life and shed His blood
to redeem and restore man back to God. (Romans 5:15; 1 John 3:8) Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from the works
and the laws, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God.(Ephesians 2:8)
ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH
Mans first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men and when
experienced produces eternal life. ( John 3:3-5; 2 Cor 7:10; 1 John 5:12)
Baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol
of the Christians identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.(Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST
The Baptism in the Holy Ghost is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation
and is received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues
as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance. His purpose is to teach and guide believers into all truth. (John 16:13; Matt.
3:11; John 14, 16, 17; Acts 1:8,2:4, 2:38, 39)
The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite
yet progressive work of grace commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at
Christs return.(Hebrews 12:14; 1Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 1 Cor. 1:30; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12-14)
