What We Believe

On the Bible
We Apostolics firmly believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is inerrant, reliable, and holds the key to every human need. (See John 5:39; Matthew 24:35; II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21.)

On Salvation
We hold to the same instructions given by the Apostle Peter in Acts 2:38. Full salvation comes by grace through faith in Christ, repentance from sin, water baptism by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues. (See Acts 8:16; 10:44-48; 19:1-7; 22:16.)

On the Deity of Jesus Christ
We believe that there is only one God who has manifested Himself to the world in the person of Jesus Christ. The divine nature that resided in Christ was the selfsame Jehovah of the Old Testament and the Holy Spirit of the Church age. (See Isaiah 9:6; John 8:58; John 14:8-11; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 14:8-9; John 10:29-31,33; Mark 12:29; James 2:19; I Timothy 3:16; Colossians 2:9-10.)

On Christian Living
We teach that a born again believer should live pleasing to God in every aspect of his life. We should live a holy life, inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The Scriptures make clear that dress, conduct, amusements, speech and all other activities are important to basic Christianity. (See Romans 12:1-2; I Corinthians 11:1-15; Galatians 5:16-26.)

On Miracles and Divine Healing
Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). God can heal, deliver, and work miracles in the twenty-first century just as He did in the first. We have the right and confidence to trust Him for this in Jesus' Name.

On Christ's Return
We look for the literal, personal return of Christ; first to rapture His Church (I Thessalonians 4:16-18) and secondly, to set up a kingdom that shall rule in peace. (See Acts 1-11; II Timothy 4-8; Revelations 20:6.)
