What We Believe

SALVATION - The doctrine of Salvation forms the core of our Christian faith by proclaiming God’s victory over sin in our lives. This truth results in deliverances, healings and restored lives.

Are there ever really any second chances in life? Surprisingly, the answer is yes. The Bible calls it Salvation. Salvation is God’s second chance for every one of us.” -- Jim Bradford, general secretary

BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT - The doctrine of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is our distinctive. This truth explains the passion and power of our witness. Jesus promised His followers they would receive power from on high so that they would be His witnesses. We believe this truth is just as relevant today as we continue to take the gospel message around the globe.

“The baptism in the Holy Spirit provides the believer with an empowering for witness and to live a life pleasing to God.” -- Alton Garrison, assistant general superintendent

DIVINE HEALING - Wherever Jesus went, He ministered with compassion and healed the sick. Christ’s example showed a connection with salvation as many believed following their healing. Our Lord continues to heal today and it is vital that the church preach, teach and practice this biblical truth. Scriptures command believers to pray in faith and trust God for healing.

“Christ’s death on the cross not only provides for forgiveness of sin, but also healing for sickness. The One who gave you the gift of eternal life…is the same One who can heal your body.”-- Doug Clay, general treasurer

SECOND COMING - With the world experiencing natural disasters, economic downturns and increasing uncertainties on many fronts, the doctrine of Christ’s Second Coming is more relevant than ever. Believers must rest in the certainty of the imminent return of our Lord and share this hope with others.

“As followers of the risen Lord Jesus, we have the assurance of a wonderful hope…a reunion with our saved loved ones, and more importantly with our Savior. We call this ‘Our Blessed Hope!’”   -- George O. Wood, general superintendent
