God There is only one God, who exists as one holy Spirit (John 4:24; Eph. 4:4). The one true God has revealed God’s self as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM”, the infinite, unchangeable, immutable, holy creator and sustainer of all things. God is Spirit, Love, Lord, Judge, Omnipotent, Good, and Pure. (Deuteronomy 6:4; John 8:58; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16.) The fullness of God is expressed in Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:9; Acts 4:12)
The Bible The Bible is an inspired written expression of the Word of God, who is Jesus Christ. The Bible is a revelation from God to humanity, the infallible principle of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to either [II Peter 1:20; II Timothy 2:16-17]. No contention is made for a perfect translation of that Word, and care must be taken in studying it, to ensure that one knows what it said in the original languages and that it is properly understood in historical and situational context. (2 Timothy 3:15-17.)
Sin Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith and obedience to the terms of the Gospel, based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)
Humanity’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. God the Progenitor purchased salvation for humanity through the sacrifice of God’s only begotten Child and Heir, who is Jesus Christ the eternal Word. This same Jesus Christ put on flesh being both God and Man through the creative miracle of conception and birth in and of a virgin. On the cross, Jesus Christ became sin and a curse, providing salvation [forgiveness, healing, redemption, deliverance, and life] for all humanity, offering justification freely by God’s Grace through the perfect work of Jesus Christ. This salvation is received by grace through faith, which is the gift of God, by all who believe in their heart and confess with their mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord.
A saving relationship with Jesus Christ is evidenced inwardly by a direct witness of the Holy Spirit, and outwardly by a life of increasing righteousness and holiness.
Salvation is by grace through faith that no one may boast. And true faith is evidenced by good works; for faith without works is dead.
(See Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4; James 2:14-26)
Repentance The Greek word for “repent” used in Acts 2:38 is μετανοήσατε (modern pronunciation: met-a-NEE-sah-tay), and suggests a change of thought. The Hebrew equivalent is more telling, as it is also the word that means “turn around” and “return.” The implication is that all of us are going the wrong way before salvation, and need to turn around and change our way of thinking and our direction... to return to God.
Sacraments Baptism comes from a Greek word that means “immerse.” The ordinance of baptism declares to the world that believers have died with Jesus and they have also been raised with Jesus to walk in newness of life, signifying the washing away of sins.(Mark 16:16; John 3:3-8; Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:20-21; Acts 10:48) The Lord’s Supper: Holy Communion, consisting of the elements, bread and wine, is the symbol of our participation in the covenant purchased for us by Jesus Christ on the cross and membership in the body of Christ, the Church universal. (Matthew 26:26-27; 1 Corinthians 11:17-32) Baptism of the Holy Ghost We are told by Jesus that we must be born again, not only of water, but of Spirit. He further connected this birth of the Spirit with a sound (John 3:8). All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek, the promise of the baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the embuement of power for life and service, the bestowing of the gifts, ministries, and manifestations in and among and out from believers as a witness for the living Christ and God the Progenitor throughout the earth. The evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit of a prophetic flow and heavenly prayer language belong to all Spirit-filled believers which they should exercise for the strengthening of their inner spiritual being and the edification of the body. All Spirit-filled believers have received the power to be witnesses for Jesus Christ which they should exercise to the salvation of souls. (Acts 2:1-4; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 10; Acts 19; Acts 8; 1 Corinthians 12:7)
Benefits of God It is Gods will, purpose, and promise to prosper us mentally, spiritually, physically, materially, and socially. Therefore we are not amazed at any trial, temptation, or affliction We know that God works all things together for the good of those that love God and are called according to God’s purpose and that the true believer will submit to God, stand on God’s promises, and seek God’s glory. (Psalm 103; 3 John 1:2)
Christian Living As Christians we are to love God and others unconditionally. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. Worship is not limited to a time of meeting or gather, but is a pervasive attitude and expression of love for God intrinsic to every aspect of the lives of devoted believers. (See Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14.)
Whosoever Will God has enacted God’s beauty in a diverse and colorful creation across manifold dimensions. This creation, as such, should be celebrated in its diversity which is also prevalent in humanity. Therefore, spectrums of color, culture, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, mental and physical ability, personality, gifting, and perception and life experiences all contribute to the mosaic glory of Christ manifest in Christ’s Body on the earth. Notwithstanding God’s celebration of diversity and purposeful deviation from norms that oppress, God’s love recovers God’s creation that has deviated from holiness and wholeness. Clearly, therefore, God’s love is powerful to deliver from pedophilia, pederasty, violence, disease, poverty, addiction, abuse, oppression, and every other thing that opposes the liberty and unity to which we are called. God sees us ALL as God's children. God has promised that God will never reject ANYONE who comes to God under ANY circumstances. (Revelation 22:17; Galatians 3:28; John 6:37)
Things to Come Jesus Christ is coming again. In the end of this realm, there will be the final resurrection and the final judgment liberating creation universally from darkness, evil and death. (See I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15; Revelation 21:4)
