1. God is the Person who created and sustains the universe. He is a Spirit who fills
every part of heaven and earth. He is the one and only true God who is Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit. God is holy, just, all powerful, all knowing, eternal, loving, and
Lord of all. He has revealed Himself to the world through the Hebrew Prophets and
in these last days through His Son Jesus Christ. He is the only God who ever was
or ever will be.
2. Jesus Christ is God in every way and has existed forever. He is the only begotten
Son of the Father, born in the flesh to a virgin. He is perfect, holy, and sinless.
He is the complete and perfect expression of God the Father, is one with the Father,
and is one with the Holy Spirit. He created, sustains, and fills the universe. Although
He emptied Himself of His heavenly privilege and apparent glory, He was always God,
always possessed the power and perfection of God, and was always and will always
be the same Person as God. He submitted Himself to the will of the Father, was rejected
by mankind; suffered and died on the cross for the sins of the world. He was raised
bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of the
Father. He is the promised Messiah of Israel. He is the only way to receive forgiveness
of sins, imputed righteous, and eternal life. He is the one and only Savior of the
world and the only way to know God. His Spirit dwells in ever reborn believer. He
is coming again to rapture and resurrect the saints, restore Israel, judge the nations,
and establish His Kingdom on earth.
3. Purpose of the Crucifixion - Jesus Christ came to earth to give Himself as the
first and final sacrifice for the sins of the world. His death is a complete and
timeless substitutionary sacrifice, a ransom for every sin that has ever been or
ever will be committed. This gift must be received by faith in order to be ratified
as an irrevocable covenant in the believer's life.
4. Eternal life is the free gift of God to anyone who receives Christ through faith
and is born of His Spirit.
5. Salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone.
6. The New Birth is essential for salvation and for living a life of obedience to
and fellowship with God.
7. Assurance of Salvation - Every believer can and should be assured of their salvation.
It is impossible for any born again believer to lose their salvation in any way by
any means. Regeneration through the Holy Spirit eternally seals and guarantees the
salvation of every believer.
8. Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Every believer who receives Christ as their Savior
is immediately baptized in the Holy Spirit once and for all time. No additional anointing
or baptism of the Spirit or is needed or possible. Jesus Himself makes every believer
complete and fulfills our every need.
9. Authority of God's Word - The Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament are the
written Word of God and are historically accurate and absolutely, exclusively trustworthy.
They are the highest authority in all matters of truth, doctrine, practice, and revelation
for all mankind and each believer. No other writing, revelation, teaching, experience,
or prophesy has the authority of God's Word. No translation is exclusively inspired
10. Born into Sin - Every person in the world is born into a fallen state of sin:
selfish, dishonest, and hostile to God. Every person on Earth is or was on their
way to judgment and punishment for their sins and an eternity in hell without hope
and without God. Only repentance and faith in Christ can change the outcome of this
certain fate. Sin is not only thought and action but also he natural state of the
human heart. Trying to live a righteous life without being reborn of God' Spirit
is impossible. Doing good deeds, keeping a set of rules, or following a religion
have no power to change the sinful nature of the human heart.
11. The Church consists of every truly reborn believer in Christ throughout the world.
No single organization, hierarchy, fellowship, or authority today can truthfully
claim to be the one and only true church. Jesus Christ, the Gospel, and the Word
of God hold exclusive authority in the Church.
12. Baptism and Communion are the only sacraments given by Christ to be observed
by the Church. Neither is necessary to be saved or to be declared righteous before
13. Satan is a powerful spiritual being, a fallen angel who became the embodiment
of evil when he rebelled against God and became His adversary. Together with the
the demons, he controls the world as it continues to rebel against God. He attacks
and accuses believers to render them fruitless but is effectively fought with faith,
truth, righteousness, the Gospel of Grace, Assurance of Salvation, and the Word of
14. Hell is real, an everlasting fire where those who have rejected God's salvation
will be justly punished for their every sin. While there will be different severities
of punishments for different types of sin, hell is an eternal, conscious, and inescapable
condition of all who die without Christ.
15. We come directly to God through Christ; listen, believe, and obey His Word and
Spirit without any other intermediary. No church, person, minister, group, hierarchy,
ritual, theology, government, priest, doctrine, saint, family, fellowship, translation,
or publication has any authority, ability, or right to come between God and the individual
believer. Every believer is a priest before God, free from all spiritual authority
except the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
16. Faith without works is not dead. Faith is not completed by works. Works are not
the other side of faith. We are saved and made righteous before God by faith and
faith alone. No one can be saved by depending upon works in any way for salvation.
17. Obligations of the Believer - Every believer who has received Christ and has
been born again is obliged to present their bodies as a living sacrifice to God.
Every believer is called to live a life of faith, prayer, witness, fellowship, love,
generosity, and praise in obedience to the written Word and the leading of the Holy
Spirit. Every believer's purpose in life is to serve Christ, cultivate a love relationship
with Him and His people, and bear fruit for His Kingdom.
18. The Christ Centered Life - A close, abiding relationship with the Lord Jesus
Christ is the most vital concern of every believer's life.
19. The End Times - The end of history will begin with sudden birth pains of a seven
year tribulation, an unprecedented period of tyranny, warfare, famine, and persecution
of the Church. It will spawn the rise of the Antichrist, a world dictator; and will
include a series of unprecedented cosmic plagues. Immediately after the Tribulation,
Jesus Christ will appear on the clouds at the Seventh Trumpet to resurrect the saints
and rapture the Church as every eye will see Him. After the wedding of the Church
in heaven and the pouring out of the Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath, He will return permanently
to redeem and restore Israel, judge the nations, destroy the Beast and imprison Satan.
The Lord Jesus will then establish a thousand year reign on earth as the King of
Israel, followed by: a final conflict, the Great White Throne Judgment, the dissolution
of the universe, the creation of a new heaven and earth, and the appearance of the
New Jerusalem where all believers will live with Him forever.
20. The Seventh Trumpet Rapture and Visible Return - The Church will be caught up
to meet Christ in the air when He appears on the clouds for every eye to see at the
Last Trumpet as the Apostle Paul clearly states. The Seventh Trumpet of Revelation
is the Last Trumpet described in all the Scripture as well as the declared completion
of the Mystery of God, which is the Church. An invisible Coming of Christ and a Pre-Tribulation
Rapture cannot be found anywhere in the Bible and must be rejected as a false teaching.
The Seventh Trumpet Rapture is inviolable and the keystone of the chronology of Last
21. The Jews and Israel - Israel and the Jews are the genetic offspring of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob. The Kingdom of Israel will be restored to the Jews exactly as written
in the Prophets when Christ returns. The land of Canaan was given by God to Abraham's
descendants as an eternal, irrevocable covenant and is the sole right of the Jewish
people to possess. Gentile believers have an obligation before God to bless the Jews,
help protect them, and be a witness to Christ among them.
