Beliefs & Purpose Statement

                                      The Scriptures
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, infallible in its orginal writings. 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21.
                                       The Son Of God
We believe in the one ever living, eternal God, infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes, and purpose, in His absolute, indivisible deity. That this one true God have revealed Himself as Father in creation, through His Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit by emanation. 1 Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; 2 Cor. 5:19; Joel 2:28.
                                      The Fall Of Man
We belive that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. In the fullness of time God sent forth His Son made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law. Gal. 4:4,5. In Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Col. 2:9. That God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. 2 Cor. 5:19. That no man can come unto the Father but by and through the Lord Jesus Christ an His shed blodd. That the Son of God is the only hope of the world. The man Christ Jesus is mediator between God and man. 1 Tim. 2:5.
 
                                               Repentence
We belive that in the beginning God created man innocent, pure, and holy, but through the sin of disobedience, Adam fell: hence by one man's disobedience, sin entered into the world. Gen. 1:27; Rom. 5:12.
 
                                 Our Redemption
We belive our redemption has been accomplished solely by the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was made sin for us, dying in our form and stead, rising again from the dead, ascending with His glorified body to the right hand of God, and by beliveing in this finished work, we are justified before God, cleansed of all our sins and redeemed from the curse of law.
John. 3:3; Rom. 5:1; Acts 13:39; Cor. 5:14-21; Gal. 2:16; 1 Pet. 1:18,18; Tit. 2:14; Rev. 5:9.

PURPOSE STATEMENT

We believe that God has made of one blood all nations (Acts 17:26), therefore, He is no respecter of persons but the blood of Jesus Christ His Son was shed for all men. (John 3:16). His church is composed of all who have been redeemed from sin by the blood and baptized into the one body by the one Spirit. It is our duty as members of this church to preach the gospel which tells of the unsearchable riches of Christ and to urge mankind to turn from sin to serve the living God.

As members of His church it is our hope and our aim to do all we can to assist fallen man in every continent to make peace with God and make sure of entering that pearly white city at the end of our sojourn on the earth.

We shall endeavor to recognize every man in the position that God has placed him in the body (His Church) and not put shackles of ecclesiasticism about him to hinder, not lords over him to rule him. We be brethren and will endeavor to conduct ourselves as such and to manifest that true spirit of brotherly love, for how can we love God whom we have not seen if we do not love our brother whom we have seen? (I John 4:20).

There being a desire in the hearts of Spirit-filled ministers throughout the world of greater love, and closer fellowship among all Gods people, a desire to be free from malice, hatred, envy and strife; and since there is a need for more cooperation, it is our purpose to form and promote an association of brethren, whose life is above reproach, who will live holy and who will preach the Bible truths with compassion, and who will give honor to whom honor is due and yet manifest the true spirit of humility, endeavoring to also keep the unity .of the spirit in the bonds of peace (Eph.4:3), until we all come to the unity of the faith. (Eph. 4:13).
