1. The Scripture
The Scripture is the revealed and inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. (2.Peter 1:21)
2. The Godhead
The Godhead, comprised of three separate and distinct personalities who function in complete unity; God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He was with the Father from the very beginning (John 1:1-4/ Kol 1:16-17). On earth He was crucified, died and was buried. On the third day, He rose from the dead and later ascended into heaven, where He remains at the right hand of God Almighty (John 19:30/ Lk 24:6-7/Eph 1:20).
3. Man’s fall and redemption
Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness.” But, man, by voluntary transgression, fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).
4. New Birth and Eternal Life
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the works of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God. Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. To be born again in Christ through the Spirit of God– the New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life. Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. Our good works are an evidence of a life driven by God and will determine our reward in eternity (Rom. 5:14, 18; 1 John 3:8; Kol 2:14-15; 2 Cor 7:10; John 3:3-5; 2 Cor 5:17; 1 John 5:12; Eph 2:8-10; Titus 3:5-7; 2 Kor.5:10).
5. Water Baptism
Baptism in water is for believers who have received Christ as their Lord and Savior to declare to the world that they identify with Christ in His death and His resurrection, to walk in the newness of life. (Matt 28:19/ Act.8:36-38/ Rom 6:4/ Kol.2.12/ Eph 4.22-24).
6. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift of the Father as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. This experience is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues. (Luke 24:49; John14:16; 15:26;
Acts 1: 8; Acts 2:38-39; Act s19:1-7; 1 Cor. 12:1-31; Acts 2:1-4).
7. Life in Abundance
John 10, 10: I have come that they may have life, Life in Abundance. This Life covers body, soul and spirit.
a) Body: Sickness is a consequence of the fall of man and restored health a right for every child of God. It is wrought through the prayer of faith and by the laying on of hands. (Isa 53:4; James 5:14-15; Mark 16:18; Luke 13:12-13; Acts 14:10; 28:8; 1 Peter 2:24)
b) Soul: The Joy of the Lord is the strength of every believer through intimate relationship with Him. He is the provider of everything we need as long as we are willing and obedient (Neh 8:10; Isa 61:10; Hab 3:13; 2 Tim 1:7; 1.Peter 1:8; Luke 15:24; 3 John 2; Isa 1:19; 2 cor 6-10)
c) Spirit: Through the spirit we communicate with God, in Christ our spirit is quickened. (John 4:24; 6:63; Eph 1:3; 2 Cor 5:17-21)
8. Jesus is coming back again
He will come and gather all His people to Heaven (Acts 1:11; 1 Cor 15:51-52; 1 Thes 4:17). After the Tribulation He will return to earth as King of Kings and He will reign together with His Saints for thousand years (Rev 5:10; 2 Thes 1:7; Rev 19:11-16). Those that reject Christ in their lifetime on earth will be eternally lost in the lake of fire (Heb 9:27; Rev 19:20; 20:10-15). There shall be a new Heaven and a new earth for those that endure to the end. Jesus is Lord. (Rev 21)
