The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:
His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35).
His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22).
His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38).
His substitutionary work on the cross (1Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4).
His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9,11: 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3).
Man was created good and upright but by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God (Genesis 1:26,27; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19).
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes endowment of power for life and service (Luke 24:49); Acts 1:4,8; 1Corinthians 12:1-31). It is distinct from and subsequent to the new birth (Acts 8:12-17; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9).
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]
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 & 1 Corinthians 12:28 [KJV/NIV]
An act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication to God (Romans 12:1,2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12). Scriptures teach a life of “holiness without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).
The Church is the body of Christ of which each believer is a part (Ephesians 1:22,23; 2:22; Hebrews 12:23).
A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry is for the threefold purpose of leading the church in:
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel, provided for in the Atonement, and is the privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:14-16).
