Nature of God
We believe in one God. One who is one in essence with Himself, the Father of us all. This is the nature of God. He alone created the heavens and the earth. There is no other person beside Him and no other god like Him. He alone is worthy of all praise, the everlasting King. He is the Holy Spirit (John 4:24).
We believe that the man Jesus was born of a virgin woman named Mary who came to manifest the name and power of his Father. Born as a babe in a manger, he grew in wisdom and in favor with man and God (Luke 2:52). He submitted himself to the spirit of Christ, the Father, becoming one with Him here on earth (Luke 3:22, Romans 8:9). He was the final sin sacrifice for mankind thus becoming the only mediator between man and God. Christ Jesus, our Lord, and God (John 20:28) now sits on the right hand of power forevermore (Mark 14:62) and His Spirit intercedes on our behalf. The complete nature of God in a nutshell (Colossians 2:9).
Now through the death, burial, and resurrection of the man Christ Jesus, the Son of God, we have grace with God and the opportunity to become son’s of God. We obtain remission of our sins through immersion in water baptism, at which time, the Father’s gift will be given to us, power from on high introducing the new birth in Christ (Acts 2:38, John 3:5).
We believe that salvation is obtained through the finish work Christ on the cross (John 19:30). It is through his shedding blood that our sins are remitted (Hebrew 9:22). When He died, the veil was torn in two, giving us access to the Holy of Holies. The tabernacle built for worship would now be the tabernacle of our hearts. To have access to that shed blood, we must first repent, then be baptized into Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38a, Romans 6:5). Once we have obeyed these commands given by the Holy Ghost, we are promised the gift of the Father to further His Kingdom (Acts 2:38b, Acts 1:8).
We believe that if we continue in the faith, confessing the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God raised His Son from the dead in an incorruptible body, we will be saved from the wrath to come (Romans 10:9, 1 Corinthians 15:45-46).
Baptism is essential to a soul’s re-birth and salvation. One must be born of water and spirit in order to see the kingdom (John 3:5). Baptism should be performed by faith, with a repented heart, by complete immersion in water into Jesus Christ.
