Jesus Christ is true God and true man
the Bible was written and inspired by God.
…faith is acting on the Word of God.
…in water baptism in the name of Jesus
…in the authority of Jesus’ name.
…in the indwelling of, and baptism of, the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
…in divine healing—the restoration of health to those who believe and act on the truths written in God’s Word. We further believe that Jesus is our Healer and that by His stripes we are already healed.
…tithes and offerings should be freely given to your local church. The local church is the place of membership where God has called you to receive His Word on a consistent basis and to grow spiritually.
…in giving alms to the poor, sick, homeless and others in despair.
Kingdom citizenship is received only through being born again
Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, You must be born again. (John 3:5-7)
How do I get born again?
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)
3 Evidences of Kingdom Citizenship
A child who is born of the Spirit should:
1. Speak the language of HIS/HER father, The Holy Spirit
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:4)
2. Display the character of HIS/HER father, The Holy Spirit
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
3. Operate in the gifts of the HIS/HER father, The Holy Spirit
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. (I Corinthians 12:4-7)
NECESSARY GRACES OF A FRUITFUL BELIEVER
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
(II Peter 1:5-11)
WITH DILIGENCE ADD TO YOUR FAITH
