Tenets of Faith and Doctrine

THE BIBLE – The Bible is the inerrant Word of God which was a revelation from God through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to various men who recorded it.

THE ONE TRUE GOD – There is only one God and His name is YHWH. The Son of God is one with the Father and proceeded out from YHWH and His Hebrew name is Y’shua. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of YHWH. YHWH, Y’shua, and the Holy Spirit are everlasting and eternal and they are one.

SALVATION – Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross to provide salvation, divine healing, deliverance, and redemption. True repentance from sin is necessary for salvation and a heart belief that Jesus died for our sins and on the third day rose from the dead. He is seated at the right hand of the Father and will return a second time to set up His earthly reign.

WATER BAPTISM – Water baptism should occur very soon after receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior as an outward sign declaring your new life in Christ.

COMMUNION – Celebrating communion commemorates what Jesus has done for us and obeys His command to remember His death and resurrection until His return.

THE GREAT COMMISSION – The great commission to take the full gospel to the ends of the earth is the responsibility of the entire body of believers.

HEAVEN AND HELL – Heaven and Hell are real places. All those who have their names written in the Lamb’s book of life by receiving salvation through Jesus, will have heaven as their eternal destination. Everyone who has refused Jesus forgiveness will spend an eternity in hell in the Lake of Fire.
