" I appeal to you, brothers,by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment."                               1Corinthians 1:10

As we are associated with the Assemblies of God, we abide by the 16 Fundamental Truths. Four of these, Salvation, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Divine Healing, and the Second Coming of Christ are considered Cardinal Doctrines which are essential to the church's core mission of reaching the world for Christ.

  1. The Bible: The Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the perfect, authoritative rule of faith and behavior.

  2. The Trinity: The one true God reveals himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  3. Jesus Christ: The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Bible declares: His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary work on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His exaltation to the right hand of God.

  4. The Fall: Man was created good and upright. However, man by voluntary disobedience fell and thereby caused not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.

  5. Salvation: Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ.

  6. Baptism and Communion: The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Communion, consisting of the elements --bread and the fruit of the vine-- is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of Jesus Christ and a memorial of his suffering and death.

  7. Baptism in the Holy Spirit: All believers are entitled to and should expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus.

  8. Evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit: The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance.

  9. Repentance: (Also known as sanctification) is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God.

  10. The Church: The Church is the Body of Christ. God’s purpose concerning the church is to seek and to save that which is lost, to give glory only to God, to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, and to demonstrate His love and compassion for all the world.

  11. Ministry: A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the fourfold purpose of leading the Church in evangelization of the world.

  12. 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.

  13. Hope: The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord is the hope of the church.

  14. The Millennial Reign of Christ: The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years.

  15. The Last Judgement: There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to the everlasting punishment.

  16. New Creation: "We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness."
