We believe the Bible to be inspired of God. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”
The Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore, all doctrine, faith, hope and all instruction for the church must be based upon and harmonize with the Bible. It is to be read and studied by all men everywhere and can only be clearly understood by those who are anointed by the Holy Spirit (1 John 2:27). “No prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:20, 21).
The basic and fundamental doctrine of this organization shall be the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ for the remission of sin, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the spirit gives utterance. We shall endeavor to keep the unity of the spirit until we all come into the unity of the faith, at the same time admonishing all brethren that they shall not contend for their different views to the disunity of the body.
We believe in the one ever-living eternal God, infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as father, through His Son, in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit, by emanation. (1 Corinthians 8:6, Ephesians 4:6, 11 Corinthians 5:19, Joel 2:28) We believe that, “In Him (Jesus) dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead, bodily” (Colossians 2:9). “For it pleased the father that in Him should all fullness dwell” (Colossians 1:19). Therefore, Jesus in His humanity was man, in His deity was and is God. His flesh was the lamb, or the sacrifice of God. He is the only mediator between God and man. “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:5).
