I affirm the God of Israel as the One true God; a Triune God in three persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Modalism and Oneness Pentecostalism is a heretical view of The Trinity.
- I believe in the doctrinal infallibility of the original manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments in the original languages of these Scriptures. 2 Timothy 3:16
- I believe in the complete Bible constituting the supreme authority for my faith and ministry. I accept the Bible as the only basis of doctrine.
- I affirm the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His existence on earth as fully man and fully God, His atoning death, and His bodily resurrection.
- I believe in salvation through faith in Jesus alone as the only provision for man’s sin. I hold that Jesus took our sin and gave us His righteousness and we must personally and consciously (prior to our physical death) accept Him on the basis of Scripture. Those rejecting Jesus will face eternal perdition, a literal eternal hell.
- I believe that man is fallen and so is creation. It is impossible for man to justify himself before a perfect God. (Galatians 2:16-21) We cannot earn or participate in any works to “obtain” salvation, such teaching is another gospel.
- I hold to a pre-millennium return of Christ at which time He will establish His millennium Kingdom on earth. Dominionism,Theonomy, Preterism, Amillennialism, Kingdom Now theology is rejected and is antibiblical.
- I accept that Gentiles who accept Jesus are incorporated into Israel in a spiritual sense (on the basis of Romans 11), rather than the church replacing Israel – a teaching which I affirm to be heretical. AKA “replacement theology” is heresy.
- I believe the gifts of the Spirit, including charismatic gifts, continue to operate in the church. However, I reject any form of charismatic or Pentecostal extremism, and reject totally any form of tradition-based or experiential theology. The Holy Spirit indwells every born again believer empowering them, sanctifying them throughout their lives, and instructing them in living a life separate from the world.
- I believe in the unity of the Spirit, (John 17) such unity seen as with other Bible-based evangelical Christians, churches, and ministries – even where I may not share all the same nonessential doctrines. However, I reject – as a false unity – ecumenism or unity in any form with nonevangelical versions of Christianity, having a different doctrine of salvation and a basis of doctrinal authority other than the Bible.
