The Bible Is The Final Authority...
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. John 17:17
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than
any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul
and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner
of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction,
for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
so that the man of God may be complete,
fully equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3: 16-17
Assembly of God 16 Fundamental Truths
1.) We Believe...The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind...
2.) We Believe...There is only One True God - revealed in three persons...Father, Son and Holy Spirit (known as the Trinity
3.) We Believe...In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, Jesus was both human and divine.
4.) We Believe...That though originally good, Man willingly Fell to Sin - ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
5.) We Believe... That Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through Salvation (by accepting Christ's offer of forgiveness for sin).
6.) We Believe...and practice two ordinances - (1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sin and receiving Christ's gift of salvation and (2) Holy Communion (The Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
7.) We Believe...The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.
8.) We Believe...The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is "Speaking in Tongues," as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles
9.) We Believe...Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more like Christ.
10.) We Believe...The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe the church is the body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denominaton) through the sacrificial death of His Son Jesus Christ.
11.) We Believe...A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry Serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers and to build up or edify the body of believers - the Church.
12.) We Believe...Divine Healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).
13.) We Believe...In The Blessed Hope - When Jesus raptures His church Prior To His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time, all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air. Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.
14.)We Believe...In The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming. The millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.
15.) We Believe...A Final Judgment Will Take Place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.
16.) We Believe ... and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. "And so shall we ever be with the Lord."
