In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (John 1: 1&14). The one true God, the Jehovah of the Old Testament, took upon Himself the form of man, and as the Son of man, was born of the virgin Mary. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh (I Tim. 3: 16).
We believe that “In him (JESUS) dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9). Therefore, Jesus in His humanity was man… in His deity was and is God. The flesh was the lamb or the sacrifice of God.(John 1:29) He is the only mediator between God and man. “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (I Timothy 2:5). “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Rev. 1: 8).
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.( Hebrews 9:22) On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness, providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind (Psalm 103:3) Being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.(Ephesians 2:8) Except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John 3:5)
We believe that all who obey receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, as promised by our Lord(Acts 5:32), as a witness to their scriptural based faith in Jesus (John 7:37-39). We further believe that the new birth of the Spirit (John 3:5) is necessary to place the believer in the Kingdom of God.( Romans 8:9) It is clear that the outpouring of the Spirit on the day of Pentecost as in Acts chapter 2,marked a “new era” in the Spirit’s dealing with mankind as prophesied by Joel 2:28 & 29 and Isaiah 28:11.
“For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence” (Acts 1:5)
