Oneness - We believe in the Oneness of God, the mystery of the Godhead that in Him (Jesus) dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily. We do not believe, teach, imply or suggest a trinity (triune, three in one, separate but equal, etc.) Godhead. We further understand that, He (Jesus) is the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and the Holy Ghost in regeneration.

What We Believe

The New Birth

We believe that New Birth is deliverance from all sin and unrighteousness through the atonement of Jesus Christ. A person receives New Birth by repentance of sin, water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and receiving the Holy Ghost with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:1-41; 4:12; 8:5-40; 10:44-48; 19:1-7), and the continuance of living a godly life (Acts 2:36-41).


Water Baptism

We believe that water baptism is an essential part of New Testament salvation. Without the proper mode of baptism it is impossible to enter the kingdom of God (St. John 3:5). Water baptism can only be administered by immersion (Mark 1:10; Acts 8:38,39; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12). The name in which baptism is administered is in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus commissioned his disciples to go into all nations and baptize in the Name (singular) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19). The disciples executed this commission on the Day of Pentecost by baptizing converts in the Name (singular) of Jesus Christ. All case histories of New Testament baptism were administered in the name of Jesus Christ. Without the Name, water baptism is void. 

Baptism of the Holy Ghost

We believe that the receiving of the baptism of the Holy Ghost, being born of the Spirit, is an essential part of New Testament salvation. The baptism of the Holy Ghost is evidenced by speaking in other tongues (other languages) as the Spirit of God gives utterance. If this supernatural manifestation does not take place, one has not received the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:141; 4:12; 8:5-40; 10:44-48; 19:1-7).

Holiness

We believe that holiness is God's prescribed standard of living for His people of all ages (Leviticus 19:2; Luke 1:74,75). We further believe that a wholly sanctified life is the only true standard of a Christian life (Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15-17). We must present ourselves Holy unto God (Romans 12:1), cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit (II Corinthians 7:1), and separate ourselves from all worldliness (James 4:4). No one can live holy by his own power, "But ye shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you . . . (Acts 1:8)."

Bible

We further believe that the Bible, the Holy Written Scripture, is the inspired holy Word of God. It was written by godly men of old who were moved under the unction and power of the Holy Spirit. There in it is profitable for doctrine, instruction in righteousness, faith, holy living, reproof, correction, and food for the soul, salvation and the mind of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
