The Church also accepts Evangelical Christianity's "General Tenets of Faith"
About God. God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal, co-eternal, and are the one God. (Gen 1:1,26-27; 3:22; Psa 90:2; Matt 28:19; 1 Pet 1:2; 2 Cor 13:14).
About Mankind. We are all made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although mankind has tremendous potential for good, we are marred by a nature of disobedience toward God called "sin." This sin nature separates us from God. (Gen 1:27; Psa 8:3-6; Isa 53:6; Rom 3:23; Isa 59:1-2).
About Eternity. We were all created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. The place of eternal separation from God is called Hell. Heaven is a place of eternal union and eternal life with God. (John 3:16; Rom 6:23; Rev 20:15; Matt 25:41; Rev 21:27).
About Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. He is the Son of God and is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of many by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords. (Matt 1:22-23; Isa 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Heb 4:14-15; 1 Cor 15:3-4; Rom 1:3-4; Matt 20:28; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Tim 6:14-15; Phil 2:5-11; Titus 2:13)
About Salvation. Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our hearts by faith. (Rom 3:10-11; 6:23; Eph 2:8-9; John 14:6; 1:12; Titus 3:5-6; Gal 3:26; Rom 5:1).
About Eternal Security. Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in the salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by any self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security. (John 10:29; 2 Tim 1:12).
About the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to open some people’s hearts so they can respond to God’s drawing prompting them to Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. (2 Cor 3:17; Acts 16:14; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor 2:12; 3:16; Eph 1:13; Gal 5:25; Eph 5:1).
About the Bible. The Bible is God’s Word to all mankind. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the Supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. (2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pet 1:20-21; 2 Tim 1:13; Psa 119:105,160; 12:6; Prov 30:5).
About Divine Healing. Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers. (Isa 53:4-5; Matt 8:16-17; James 5:14-16; 1 Pet 2:24).
About the Ministry. A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the purpose of leading the Church in: (1) Evangelism, (2) Worship, and (3) Equipping a body of Christians to be perfected in the image of Jesus Christ and for the work of the ministry. (Mark 16:15-20; John 4:23-24; Eph 4:11-16).
