he One True God - The one
true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self existent I AM, the Creator
of the universe and the Redeemer of mankind (Deut. 6:4; Ex. 3:14; Is. 43:10,11).
God has further revealed Himself as a triune Being manifested as Father, Son and
Holy Spirit (Isa. 48:16; Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22).
The Scriptures Inspired - The
Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inspired of God and are the
revelations of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and

- The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and as such shares in the

the Church of the firstborn (Eph. 1:22,23; 2:22; Heb. 12:23).
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
- With the baptism in the Holy Spirit comes the enduement of power for life and
service, the bestowment of the gifts or enablements of the Holy Spirit and their
uses in the ministry of the body of Christ (Lk. 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; I Cor.
Divine Healing - Divine
healing was provided for all in the Old Testament (Ex. 15:22-26; Psa. 103:1-3;
Isa 53:4-5) and is an essential part of the Gospel (Matt 8:16-17; Acts 5:16;
