The Foundation of the Apostolic Faith is build upon the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.  Ephesians 3:20
 
On the day of Pentecost after Peter's words of Christ; men responded as they
                             asked of him and the other apostles, " friends, what are we to do? "   Acts 2:37
      
We Believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is inerrant, reliable, and holds the key 
to every human need.   John  5:39;  Matthew  24:35;  2 Timothy 3:16;  2 Peter  2:21
 
We Believe there is only one God who has manifested Himself to the world in the person Jesus Christ and the divine nature that resided in Christ was the selfsame Jehovah of the Old Testament
and the Holy Spirit.     Isaiah  9:6;  John  8:58, 14:8 -11;  Colossians  2:9 -10
 
We Believe the same instruction by the Apostle Peter in Act 2:38 that 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 remissions of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues, as the Spirit gives
the utterance.    Acts  8:16, 10:44 - 48, 19:1 -7, 22:16

We Believe in adhere to the Scriptural teaching of a life of Holiness. 
                     1 Peter 1:15,16;  Titus  2:11,12;  2 Corinthians  7:1;  Romans  12:2;  Hebrews  12:1
 
We Believe Jesus Christ poured God's goodness into us; we are his ambassadors. As his ambassadors, we work in cooperation with God by exhibiting Him through our lives and through our words. We can use a variety of means but the objective should always remain the same to help others see Him better, not us.–”He (Jesus) must increase, but I must decrease.”    2 Corinthians  5:20;   John  3:30
