THAT THE BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD, AND WAS WRITTEN BY HOLY MEN OF OLD, AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.
2 Tim 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21
THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE LORD,ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM; ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL, GOD, AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN, IN THE ONE LORD CHRIST JESUS; ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM., WHO IS INFINITE IN POWER, HOLY IN NATURE, ATTRIBUTES AND PURPOSES, WHO IS OMNISCIENT AND ALSO OMNIPRESENT.
Eph 4:5, 1Tim 2:5
THAT IN JESUS ALL THE FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY, FOR IT PLEASED THE FATHER THAT IN HIM, (JESUS) SHOULD ALL THE FULLNESS DWELL.
Colos 2:9, 1 Tim 3:16
IN THE VIRGIN BIRTH; JESUS WAS BOTH HUMAN AND DIVINE; HE WAS GOD MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH.
Lk 1:31, Matt 1:21, I Tim 3:16
IN THE DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST. WE BELIEVE THAT HE ASCENDED ON HIGH IN HEAVEN AND HAS SENT HIS SPIRIT, THE HOLY GHOST, WHICH WAS POURED OUT AT JERUSALEM.
IT IS THIS SAME SPIRIT THAT IS FILLING THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.
Acts 2:39, Rom 6:4, Rom 8:1, Acts 2:4, Heb 11:6
IN BAPTISM IN WATER BY IMMERSION IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR REMISSION OF SINS, AND IN THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST, SPEAKING IN OTHER TONGUES AS THE SPIRIT GIVES UTTERANCE. THIS CONSTITUTES THE NEW BIRTH. Acts 2:38, ST JOHN 3:5
THAT EACH INDIVIDUAL SHOULD LIVE A HOLY, SANCTIFIED LIFE, PLEASING BEFORE THE LORD IN ORDER TO SEE HIM IN PEACE.
Heb 12:14, 1 Peter 1:16
IN DIVINE HEALING.
Matt 4:23-24, Matt 10:1
1 Co 11:24-26, Matt 26:26
WE BELIEVE ALSO IN THE CACHING AWAY OF THE SAINTS (IN THE RAPTURE) WHEN JESUS RETURNS IN THE CLOUDS TO TAKE HIS PEOPLE TO HEAVEN.
1 Thes 4:15-17, 1 Co 15:52
WE BELIEVE IN THE BAPTISM IN THE NAME OF JESUS. WE BELIEVE IN THAT WE SHOULD BE COMPLETELY IMMERSION INTO WATER IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE REMISSION OF OUR SINS. ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF ACTS 2:38. (THE SCRIPTURE STATES HERE, HOW BAPTISM IS TO BE CONDUCTED). SCRIPTURE STATES THAT YE SHALL ALSO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY GHOST. (This is the spirit birth.) Matt 28:19 instructs us to use the NAME of JESUS in baptism and Acts 4:12 states that salvation is in no other name but the name of Jesus! We know that the name of JESUS is powerful and there is healing and that Name can also remit sins, You can be cleansed of your sins in baptism. (Baptism in Jesus Name is the water birth). That name is powerful and should be used in baptism for our salvation.
