The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. 

We believe...

Our Position on Holidays:

We believe in, walk in and receive the nine gifts of the Spirit:

We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Ps 139.)

  1. The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.

  2. There is only one God, eternally existent in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

  3. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule for ever.

  4. In the bless hope of the eternal state of man, of the Church at Christ’s coming.

  5. The only means of being cleansed from sin (of flesh, or against the body, the eye and the pride of life) is through repentance and faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ.

  6. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

  7. The redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross provides restoration for man by Faith.

  8. The baptism with the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to those who desires to be adopted into the Body of Christ.

  9. In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Holy life.

  10. In the resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.

  11. God made man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. God blessed them and said unto them be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, Genesis 1:26:28.

  12. Because God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between a man, a woman, and Himself, we {the church} will only recognize marriages between a biological man and a biological woman.

  • We believe it of great necessity to state our biblical position on this belief among believers.

  • We do not celebrate and/or teach pagan holidays such as Christmas, Easter or Valentine Day.

  • We study and teach the Testimony of Jesus Christ that is prophesied in the Feast of Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles.

  • We believe Jesus Christ came to fulfill all that was written of Him in "the Law, the Psalms and the Prophet." "He came in the volume of the Book it is written of Me" (Luke 24, John 5:45-46, Acts 3:22-23, Hebrews 10:7, I Cor 15:46-47).

  • We believe that The Feast of the Lord acknowledges the truth, the external form of the Law, first the natural, afterwards the Spirit. This is the patterns set forth from heaven on earth relative to the plan of redemption for the present dispensation from the first coming of Christ (Passover), through the Church Age (Pentecost to the second coming of Christ (Tabernacles).

  • We believe that Disciples of Christ have been commanded to teach as Christ has instructed. “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24:27).

  • We believe pagan holidays such Christmas and Easter do not teach or testify of Christ Jesus as the scriptures have said. “And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the Law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning Me" (Luke 24:44).

  • We understand that many keep and celebrate these pagan holidays; therefore we separate ourselves completely from such teachings and/or celebrations that are contrary to what the Bible teaches and those things which nullifies or lightly esteem the true Testimony of Jesus Christ. "And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" (II Corinthians 6:16-17).

  • We believe Valentine Day teaches contrary to having a zeal for purity in every thought, word, deed, intention and godliness.  These virtues are of a great reward! The Bible teaches in 2 Timothy 2:22, “Flee also youthful lusts, but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Therefore, we do not agree or encourage:

  • Preteens or teenage dating or courtship with out a Word from the Living God regarding their spouse, which is an adult matter. (Matt 19:6)

  • Impure fantasies, thoughts and ideas that bombard children’s mind.

  • Deceptive attractions and desires that more often than not, leads to their own lusts, directing their actions, instead of a genuine love for the Father and obedience to their parents.

  • Living according to the works of the flesh – allowing thoughts and ideas that are not pure to live and take up residence in children’s heart and mind – is sin. And what does sin do? It separates us from the Love of God, ruins, hinders, corrupts and destroys holy living. (Matt 5:27-30, Galatians 6:18; Romans 6:23, Gal 5:19, 5:24)
