We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through his death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by his resurrection from the dead.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ literally and physically arose from the dead and ascended to heaven; and is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the divine Teacher who guides and illuminates believers through the Scriptures, and that it is the privilege as well as the duty of all the saved to be filled with and controlled by the Spirit.
We believe sanctification in the Holy Spirit to be the work of God's free grace, whereby we are renewed in the whole man after the image of God, and are enabled step by step to live unto righteousness and true holiness.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the giver of spiritual gifts. However, we believe that the spiritual “sign gifts” which were used to authenticate new prophecy and new scripture are not present in this age. For example: the gifts of apostles, sign-miracles, new revelations, and tongues as an evidence of the presence and power of the Holy Spirit ceased with the close of the Apostolic period of church history. Any so called apostles, sign-miracle workers (or “Faith Healers”), giving of new revelations, or charismatic utterances in this present age are not ordained of God.
We believe it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God's Word, which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh and clearly warns believers to avoid unbelief and licentiousness, and clearly admonishes us to endure until the end.
We believe that God’s holiness demands that His people pursue holiness. Separation is primarily positive in that God sets believers apart for Himself and believers set themselves apart for God.
