“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” II Timothy 3: 16-17
“No prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation… (in other words we can’t all have our own interpretation of the Bible like many want)..For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” II Peter 1: 20-21. The Holy Ghost wrote the scripture, and he must interpret the scripture to us.
In the trinity of the Godhead; that is, there are three distinct Divine Personalities, each with His own particular office and ministry, yet ONE in nature and purpose.
That Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and is the eternal Word made flesh. He has the threefold office of Prophet, Priest, and King. He is the only Head of the Church, which is His body.
The Holy Spirit is God’s Agent to execute the Father’s will. During this present Church Age, He is carrying out God’s plan for the church. He was sent to earth, on the day of Pentecost, to dwell not only with men, but in them – Acts 2. He is actively dealing with sinners, and filling believers, and leading and teaching them the truth.
In the complete depravity of the human race, which began with the disobedience of Adam and Eve. Everyone who is born of the human race needs to accept the Redeemer, Jesus Christ, in order to be made righteous.
That salvation is by grace, through faith, absolutely apart from works. Ephesians 2:8-9
That salvation is for everyone who believes, and not for a chosen number only-John 3:16. Man has a will of his own, to either accept or reject the Gift (Jesus) of God.
That, when an individual accepts Christ as his personal Saviour, he is born again of God. This new birth is irrevocable, and cannot be changed. Once a person becomes a Christian, he cannot be lost.
There are only two church ordinances: The Lord’s Supper and Water Baptism. These are to be observed only as symbols and remembrances.
That baptism is by immersion, and should be done in the Name of the Lord Jesus- Acts 2: 37-38. Women’s head covering as taught in I Corinthians eleven, is a wonderful symbol; and should be observed from a heart of sincerity, not as a law.
That after a person is saved (born again) he should receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Agent of the new birth, and will guide each believer into more truth if that one is willing to be led by him. The Spirit desires to inhabit and control the whole of a man; and therefore, every believer should be filled with the Spirit. This is an experience absolutely separate from salvation; and is evidenced by the believer speaking in a language he does not know, as the Spirit gives utterance – Acts 2:4.
