about

We Believe

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible (unalterable) word of God, written by holy men of old as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. II Peter 1:20,21

We believe in ONE God, infinite in power, whose name is Jesus. We believe that he was revealed to us as Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Spirit in His comforting grace that never leaves those who trust in Him. I Cor 8:6, 1 Eph 4:6.11; II Cor 5:19; Joel 2:28

We believe that in Jesus Christ dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; for it pleased the Father that in HIM should all the fullness dwell. Col 2:9; Col 1:19

We believe in the virgin birth; that Jesus was both human and divine — God manifest in the flesh. I Timothy 3:16

We believe in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus.

We believe in baptism in water by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. Acts 2:4, 38; Acts 19:5-6

We believe in the literal second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We also believe in the glorious catching away of the saints (the rapture), before the tribulation and that only those who are filled with His Spirit and living a life of Holiness will go with Him when He comes. I Thes 4:13-18; I Cor 15:51-54; Acts 2:11

We believe in living a Holy and Sanctified life apart from which one can not please God Heb 12:14

We believe in Divine Healing, Communion and foot washing I Thes 4:3,7; I Cor 11:23-26; John 13:4-15

 God The Father, The Son & The Holy Spirit
(Oneness)
 

Oneness Pentecostalism (also known as Apostolic, Jesus’ Name Pentecostalism, or Jesus Only movement) is a movement within the Christian family of churches known as Pentecostalism. It derives its distinctive name from its teaching on the Godhead, which is popularly referred to as the “Oneness doctrine,” a form of Modalistic Monarchianism. This doctrine states that there is one God, a singular divine Spirit, who manifests himself in many ways, including as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

 

This stands in sharp contrast to the doctrine of three distinct and eternal persons posited by Trinitarian theology. Oneness believers baptize in the name of Jesus Christ, rather than using the Trinitarian formula, of baptizing “in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Oneness believers state that Jesus is the one name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and so should perform all religious activities in that one name.

 

Besides their beliefs about the Godhead, Oneness Pentecostals differ significantly from most other Pentecostal and Evangelical Christians in matters of soteriology. Whereas most Pentecostals and evangelicals believe that only faith in Jesus Christ is the essential element for salvation, Oneness Pentecostalism defines salvation as saved by grace through faith and “true” faith leads to repentance, full-submersion water baptism (in the name of Jesus Christ) and baptism in the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. Many also tend to emphasize strict “holiness standards” in dress, grooming and other areas of personal conduct that are not necessarily shared by other Pentecostal groups, at least not to the degree that is generally found in some Oneness churches who also say holiness is to be set apart to God.
