16 Fundamental Truths

INSPIRED SCRIPTURE

The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. 

2 Timothy 3:15-17 [KJV/NIV]  1 Thessalonians 2:13 [KJV/NIV]  2 Peter 1:21 [KJV/NIV]


ONE TRUE GOD

The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of heaven and earth and the

Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

Deuteronomy 6:4 [KJV/NIV] Isaiah 43:10,11 [KJV/NIV] Matthew 28:19 [KJV/NIV] Luke 3:22 [KJV/NIV]


THE DIETY OF JESUS

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:

His virgin birthMatthew 1:23 [KJV/NIV]

His sinless life, Hebrews 7:26 [KJV/NIV]  1 Peter 2:22 [KJV/NIV

His miracles, Acts 2:22 [KJV/NIV]  Acts 10:38 [KJV/NIV

His substitutionary work, 1 Corinthians 15:3 [KJV/NIV]  2 Corinthians 5:21 [KJV/NIV

His bodily resurrection, Matthew 28:6 [KJV/NIV]  Luke 24:39 [KJV/NIV]


THE FALL OF MAN

Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness." However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Genesis 1:26,27 [KJV/NIV]  Genesis 2:17 [KJV/NIV]  Genesis 3:6 [KJV/NIV]  Romans 5:12-19 [KJV/NIV]


SALVATION OF MAN

Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Luke 24:47 [KJV/NIV]  John 3:3 [KJV/NIV] Romans 8:16 [KJV/NIV] Ephesians 4:24 [KJV/NIV]  Titus 2:12 [KJV/NIV]

CHURCH ORDINANCES

BAPTISM IN WATER

Matthew 28:19 [KJV/NIV]  Mark 16:16 [KJV/NIV]  Acts 10:47,48 [KJV/NIV]  Romans 6:4 [KJV/NIV]


HOLY COMMUNION
2 Peter 1:4 [KJV/NIV]),  1 Corinthians 11:26 [KJV/NIV]), 

HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM

All believers are entitled to and should ardently 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 Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.

Luke 24:49 [KJV/NIV]  Acts 1:4 [KJV/NIV]  Acts 1:8 [KJV/NIV]  1 Corinthians 12:1-31 [KJV/NIV]


PHYSICAL EVIDENCE

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. Acts 2:4 [KJV/NIV] Acts 10:46 and 19: 6

The speaking in tongues in this instance is the same in essence as the gift of tongues, but is different in purpose and use.

1 Corinthians 12:4-10 [KJV/NIV]  1 Corinthians 12:28 [KJV/NIV]
