Righteous Man

(Gen. 1-3; Rom. 3:23; 5:12-19; 6:23; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 2:1-3).

The Righteous Man

We believe in the creation and subsequent fall of man and this fallen man can be saved through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit, the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection that provides the ground for man’s justification and salvation. Unregenerate man, with a beast nature, needs a Savior and he is unable to attain to divine righteousness by means of his own wisdom and strength.

The Creator

We believe in one God, the creator of all things who is infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

Scripture

(Gen. 1:26; Deut. 6:4; 1 Kg. 8:60; Matt. 28:19; Mark 12:29; John 14:26; 15:26; Acts 2:33; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 1:3-14; 4:4-6; Jas. 2:19; 1 Pet. 1:2; 3:18; 1 John 5:7; Rev. 1:4-5)

Belief

We believe that the Holy Bible is verbally inspired, inerrant, and the only infallible authoritative word of God when rightly interpreted by the Holy Spirit

Scripture

(Ps. 45:1; Ezek. 1:3; Matt. 24:35; Luke 24:27; Rom. 15:4; 1 Cor. 10:11; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21) >

Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior

We believe in the giving of tithes to the local church and itinerant and other ministries to do the work of the ministry. This is a divinely avenue of spiritual, financial and material blessings to the church, ministry and individual believer.

We believe in personal regeneration, that one must be born again to see and enter the Kingdom of God. This initial salvation of sinners is by grace through faith in the perfect and all-sufficient finished work of Jesus Christ. The ground of this justification by faith is the blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God (John 1:29; 3:1-8; 17:4; 19:30; Acts 13:38-39; Rom. 5:1-2; Eph. 2:8-9; Rev. 13:8).

We believe in the baptism in water after this conversion experience by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ not just for the remission of sins but also for the circumcision of the heart. The old man is put to death and the new creation man arises to walk in newness of life. Blood, water (baptism) and Spirit constitute the three witnesses that initiate the New Covenant (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Rom. 2:28; 6:1-14; Col. 2:11-12; 1 John 5:8).

We believe that the fruit of the Spirit is the divine nature and character of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Pattern Son for every believer. We are called to be like the One who is the firstborn among many brethren (Rom. 8:28-29; 2 Cor. 3:18; Gal. 5:22-23; 2 Pet. 1:3-4; 1 John 3:1-3).

We believe in Spirit-filled prayer and intercession, and that fasting (abstaining from food and leading a fasted life) intensifies prayer. Spiritual warfare is waged and won on the basis of Jesus’ finished work. We are to cast out demons in the Name of the King Jesus Christ. Satan, our adversary, is a reality, and was completely defeated by our Lord’s death and resurrection. We are called to enforce Jesus’ victory, to occupy until He comes, to call those things which be not as though they were, to prophetically decree a thing so that it will be established unto us (Job 1:7; 22:28; Matt. 4:2; 12:25-29; Mark 16:17; Luke 4:2; 10:17-20; 19:13; Acts 8:18-24; 13:6-12; 19:13-20; Rom. 4:17; 2 Cor. 2:11; 11:14, 27; Eph. 6:10-18; Heb. 2:14; Jas. 4:7; 1 Pet. 5:8-9; 1 John 3:8).

We believe in the order of worship given by revelation in the Tabernacle of David and restored to the Church today. This includes the voice (singing, shouting), the hands (clapping, raising, playing instruments), and the whole body (standing, bowing, kneeling, dancing) (2 Sam. 6; 1 Chron. 13-16; Psa. 150; Acts 15:13-17; Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16).

We believe the true church is composed of all those who are born again and that through the new birth we are united together in the body of Christ, Jesus being the Lord and Head of the Church. All authority centers in Jesus Christ and He has delegated His jurisdiction into the home (domestically), the local church (ecclesiastically), and civil government. We believe in the local church as the assembly of the righteous together, for the preaching of the gospel and for world evangelization and discipleship of saints. We believe in theocratic (God-ruled) local church government and order (elders, deacons, and s). Divine order in the New Testament maintains a plurality of eldership and leadership, but there is a set man at any given time with a distinctive anointing to father the flock of God (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 13:1-2; 15:19; Rom. 13:1-7; Eph. 1:20-23; Phil. 1:1; 2:5-11; 1 Tim. 3:1-13).

We believe that the Kingdom of God is a present reality and will expand until the knowledge of His Lordship covers the earth, The Government of God is the purpose of God; it is the extension of His rule and dominion in the earth and the universe. The Church, universal and local, mystical and tangible, invisible and visible, is the instrument through which that purpose is to be realized (Gen. 1:26-28; Dan. 2:44-45; 7:27; Hab. 2:14; Mark 1:14-15; Rom 14:17; Eph. 3:21; Heb. 12:25-29; Rev. 1:6; 5:10; 11:15; 19:1-6).

Tithes & Offerings

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be the only Savior of all men, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very (fully) God and very (fully) man. Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again according to the Scriptures. He personally appeared in His new body to His disciples before ascending to His seat at the right hand of the Majesty in the heavens as our High Priest and Mediator and we have received Him as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus’ finished work (His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension) reversed the curse concerning the spirit, soul, and body of the first man Adam. He is the only Way to the Father, the only valid Door and entry into the realm of Spirit (Gen. 3:15; Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:18-25; John 10:1; 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Cor. 15:3-8; Gal. 3:13-14; 1 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 4:14-16; 8:1-6; 10:12-13).

Pane I

We believe that the gifts or manifestations of the Holy Spirit are the supernatural ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that every member of the Body of Christ should flow in several of them. New Testament ministry is the outflowing of the indwelling Christ. The Church is called to a spiritual ministry of speaking, knowing, and doing. These nine manifestations enable us to talk like God, think like God, and do the works of God (Mark 16:15-20; Acts 1:8; 4:7-10, 29-31; 5:12; 8:5-13; 10:38; Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 4:20; 12:8-10; 14:1-40; Heb. 2:3-4; 1 Pet. 4:10-11)
