That the HOLY BIBLE is the HOLY SCRIPTURES,and the word of God given to man through the Holy Spirit inspiration. It declares the nature and the will of God to man through Jesus Christ. It consists of 39 books of the Old Testatement and 27 of the New Testament it is the final authority in all matters concerning Christian doctrines, living and service. Ps. 19:7-11, Prov. 30:5,6; II Tim. 3:15-17, II Peter 1:20, 21; Rev. 22:18,19.
That the GOD HEAD consists of three different and distict persons possesing different, district, recognisable, personalities and qualities, but are perfectly united in one: God the Father, God the Son-Jesus Christ- and God the Holy Spirit, are three different persons in the GODHEAD and not merely three names of one person. Matt. 13:16-17, 28:19,20 John 1:1-3, 14 14:23-26; 15:26; 16:13-15: 11Cor. 13:14; John 5:6-9.
That God is infinite, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscience who is all wise and perfect in knowledge. he is immutable, holy, faithful, loving and just. He is supreme above all things and persons in the universe both in heaven and on earth; he created all things for his glory and honour. He is the father of Jesus Christ and of all who come unto him through his Son Jesus Christ. Gen. 1:1, Ex. 15:11; Ps. 86:15; 90:2; 139: 1-12 prov. 3 :19; Mal 13:6; Jh 3:16; 1Thess 5:24.
That JESUS CHRIST is the son of God, His virgin birth, His sinless life, miracles and vicarious suffering, atoning death, bodily ascension to the right hand of God and His future return in person with the saints in power and glory to rule over the nations of this earth for one thousand years. Isa. 7:41; 53: 1-12; Mt. 1.18-25 Acts 1:9-11; 2:22-24, 31-36; 7:55,56; Rom. 1: 3-4 5:6-11; 6:9-10; Icor. 15:3,4.
That the HOLY SPIRIT is a personality, a companion and comforter by whose illumination, conviction and regeneration, men are brought to regeneration and faith in Jesus Christ. His work of sanctification in the lives of believers and their divine preservation unto eternal life; and that believer ought to seek his fullness, baptism, manifestation of His fruit and also believe in the operation of His gifts. Jh. 14:26; 15:26,27; 16:7-15; Rom. 8:11-16; 26-27; I Cor.2:9-13; 12:1-11.
That total deprativity, SINFULNESS AND GUILT of all men since the fall render them subject to God’s wrath and condemnation. Gen.2:15-17; 3:6-13; 16-19; 6:5; Job.14:4; Ps. 51:5; Mk.7:21-23; 19:Eph.2:1-3, Rom.3:23, 5:12.
That REPENTANCE is a complete turning away from all sins and their deceitful pleasure and it is required from every sinner before he can truly and effectively believe in Jesus with saving faith. By this he is reconciled with God. Prov. 28:13, Is. 55:7, Ezek. 18:21-23; Mk. 1:15, Lk. 24; 46-47; Acts 2:38; 3:19-20; 20:20-21; II Cor.7:9-10, Heb. 6:1-3.
That RESTITUTION is the making amends for wrongs done against our fellow men, restoring stolen things back to their rightful owners, paying debts, giving where one has defrauded, making confessions to the offended and apologizing toward God and man. Gen 20:1-18; Ex 22:17; Lev. 6:17; Num. 5:6-8; II Sam.12:1-6; Prov.6:31; Ezek.33:14-16; Mt.5:23, Lk.19:8, 9; Act 23:1-5, 24:16, Jam.4:17; 5:6.
That SALVATION is an experience and the evidence of a renewed life which has confessed and renounced all known sins and there after constantly, continuously and victoriously lives a life of love, holiness, service, hope and by faith is the LORD Jesus, the word of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit and that no other formalities are required. A believer can lose his salvation when he commits sins. Rom. 6:1-14; 7:24; 8:14, Eph. 2: 5-10; Phil.2:12-16; 3:7-16, Col.3:1-16.
That JUSTIFICATION OR REGENERATION is the act of God’s grace whereby a sinner receives forgiveness and remission of sins and is counted righteous before God, through faith in the atoning blood of Jesus, and he is able to stand before God as though he has never sinned. Ps 32:1,2; Isa. 1:18; Mic.7:19, John3:3-8; II Cor.5:17-21; Gal.2:16; Eph.2:8,9; Tit.3:5; I Pet. 1:23.
That REDEMPTION is the substitution sacrifice of Jesus Christ which sets sinners free from sins, sickness (and eternal death), satanic power, purified and adopted as sons of God. Ex.15:26; 23:25,26; Deut.7:15; Ps 103:14:12-14; Acts 10:38, Gal.3:13; 14; Jam. 5:14-16; Prov. 4:20-22, Isa 53:4,5 Mt 8:16,17, Mk 8:16,17, Mk 16:15-18, Lk 13:16, Jh10:10, 14:12-14, I John3:8; II John 2, 1Pet 2:24.
That ENTIRE SANCTIFICATION is a definite act of God’s grace subsequent to the new birth, by which the believer’s heart is purified and made holy. It requires a definite separation from all sins and appearances of evil together with a definite dedication of all that a believer is, and has unto God. It cannot be attained progressively by works, struggle or suppression, but it is obtained instantaneously by faith in the sanctifying blood of Jesus Christ, maintained by constant dedicated and consecrated life to God, but lost when the believer sins. Holiness of life and purity of heart are central to Christian living. Lk.1:74,75; John17:14-23;Eph.5:25-27; I Thess.4:3, 7,8; Tit. 2:11-14; Heb.2; 10:10,14; 12:14; 13:11,12; I Pet. 1:14-16: I John. 1:17.
That EVANGELISM (both personal and mass) is a God given and God ordained Ministry for every believer. Jesus Commanded and God requires every believer to be a compassionate and fruitful soul winner, bringing others to Christ. Ps. 126:5,6; Prov.11:30; Ezek.3:17-21; Dan.12:3; Matt.28:19,20; Mk. 16:15; Lk. 24:46-49; John 17:18; Act. 1:8; 8:1-4; 6:4,7; 20:20,21.
That RAPTURE (commonly referred to as the first phase or stage of the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST) is the catching away from the earth of all living saints and all who are dead in the LORD. The Rapture will take place before the Great Tribulation and can happen anytime from now. “In a twinkling of an eye” without a moment’s warning, “the trumpet shall sound” and the dead in Christ shall arise 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”. Lk. 21:34-36; John14:1-3; I Cor.15:51-58; Phil.3:11, 20, 21; I These.4:13-18; 5:4-9; II Thess 2:5-7; I John 3:1-3; Rev. 1:19; 4:1-4.
That the RESURRECTION of the dead is taught in the Bible as clearly as the immortality of the soul. Every individual who has ever lived will be resurrected, some to honour and glory and others to everlasting shame and contempt. Job. 19:25-27; Ps. 71:20; Isa. 26:19; Dan. 12:2; John 5:28, 29, 1Cor 15:12-57, Phil 3:8-11,1Thes 4:13-16, Heb 6:1,2, Rev 20:4-6, 12-13.
That the GREAT TRIBULATION will occur after the Rapture and will be a time of terrible suffering on earth. It is also referred to as the time of Jacob’s trouble. Matt.24:21, 22, 29; Mk.13:19; I Thess.2:3-13; Rev.6:8, 9, 13, 16. During this time, the Antichrist will take possession of this world for a reign of terror. He would not be a system or organization but a person a supernatural, diabolic being, in the form of a man who will blaspheme and proclaim himself to be God. Dan. 8:23-25; II Thess. 2:7-12; Rev.13:1-10. The marriage supper of the Lamb will take place above, while the Tribulation continue on earth. II Cor5:10; Rev.19:1-10.
That the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST will be just as literal and visible as His going away, and He is coming to execute judgment upon the ungodly. He will also, then set up His kingdom and reign on this present earth for a thousand years. Zech.14:3-4; Mt.25:31-46; Mk.13:24-37; Act1:9-12, II Thess.1:7-10; 2:8; Jude14,15; Rev.1:7.
That CHRIST MILLENNIAL REIGN is one thousand years of literal reign of Jesus Christ on earth, which will be ushered in by the coming of Jesus Christ back to earth with thousands of His saints. At this time He will judge the nations that dwell upon the face of the earth. II Thess.1:7-10; Jude14,15. During this time the devil will be bound. Rev.20:2,3. It will be a reign of peace and blessing. Isa.2:2-4; II:6-9; 65:25; Hos.2:18; Zech.14:19-20.
That the GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT is when God finally judges all (the living and the dead, small and great) who have ever lived on the face of the earth, according to their works. This is after the millennium. At this time the final judgment, know as the Great White Throne will be held. All those from all ages who have not yet been judged, believer judgment as sinners was accomplished by Christ on the cross (Jh 5:24, 3:17-19) will stand before God at this time. The devil and his angels are judged at this time also and sent to the lake of fire forever. Dan.12:2; Mt.10:15; 11:21-24; 12:41, 42; John5:28-29; Act10:24; Rom2:15:16; 14:12; I Cor.6:1-4; IIPet.2:9; Rev.20:11-15.
That the NEW HEAVEN AND THE NEW EARTH wherein dwelleth righteousness’ will be made by God and the redeemed shall dwell with God forever. This present earth which has been polluted by sin will pass away after the Great white Throne judgment. (Ps. 102:25, 26; Isa.51:5; 65:17; Mt.5:18; 24:35; IIPet.3:10-13; Rev.21:1). No unclean thing will be there. We shall know each other our knowledge having been perfect. There will be no more curse upon anything. There will be no more night; the glory of the LORD will be the light thereof. Isa.66:22; ICor.15:50; IIPet.3:12’13; I John 3:2,3; Rev.21:1-7, 27, 22:1-5.
That HELL-FIRE is a place of everlasting punishment where sinner (all who do not have their names in the book of life) will suffer torment forever and ever. It was prepared for the devil and his angels (Mt.25:41) but God has decreed that the wicked and those who forget Him and reject Christ will also be cast there because of their sin and neglect of His salvation. Ps.9:17; Mt.5:22, 30, Mt. 25:46; Mk.9:43:48; Lk.12:4,5; 16:19-31; Rev.14:10,11; 20:10, 12-15.
That MARRIAGE is a holy and honourable estate, instituted by God for companionship between a Christian man a Christian woman and for procreation of children. It is binding for life and may be dissolved only by death. Monogamy is uniform teaching of the Bible. Polygamy and Polyandry are contrary to God’s perfect will and Institution. No polygamist, polyyandrian, homosexual or any one who has married wrongly or a sex pervert shall be allowed unbeliever. Also under the New Testament dispensation, no one has a right to divorce and remarry white the first companion lives. When a person becomes converted, necessary restitution on this line must be done without delay if he has married wrongly. Gen.2:24; 20:3-7; Deut.7:14; Jos.23:11-13; Prov.31:10-31; Mal.2:14-16; Matt.5:31, 32; 19:3-9; Mk.10:2-12; Lk.16:18; John.4:15-19; Rom.7:2, 3; IICor.6:14-18; Eph.5:31-33.
That WATER BAPTISM is essential to our obedience to the LORD’s command after reconciliation with God. The Baptism is one immersion (not three), in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost’ as Jesus commanded. Mt.28:19; 3:13-17; Mk.16:15, 16; Acts2:38-39; 19:1-6; Rom.6:4,5,10.
That the LORD’S SUPPER was instituted by Jesus Christ that all believers (all members of the family of God) might partake there of regularly, to “shew the LORD’s death till He come” The emblems used are ‘unleavened bread’ and the juice of ‘fruit of the vine’. Anyone who eats and drinks unworthily brings ‘damnation’ punishment and chastisement upon himself. Exd.12:8, 15,17-20; Mt.26:26-29; Lk.22:17-20; ICor.5:6-9; ICor.11:23-30.
That TITHE AND OFFERING are the whole hearted giving to the work of the LORD, of more than ten percent of the believers gross earning, benefits, gifts, and any other income. Tithe on its own is exactly ten percent (10%) of such earning while the offering is the giving of any amount of materials in addition to the tithe, as the LORD has prospered the believer. This is the main source, as established in the Bible, for the church to obtain founds. It is the duty of every believer to perform this.
