WE BELIEVE IN ONE GOD
Our basic and fundamental doctrine follows what the apostles taught, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
We will continue to keep the Apostles doctrine and the gospel given to us, at the same time admonishing all brethren that they shall not contend for their different views to the disunity of the body.
Then Peter said unto them, repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
We follow the after the Apostles and the way they followed after what Jesus taught. They were the eyewitnesses after all and Jesus picked these men of strong constitutions for a reason.
The book of Acts in every instance where baptism was performed, the apostles baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.
Immediately after explaining the plan of salvation in the 38th verse of acts in the 39th verse of the 2nd chapter of Acts, Peter said
“this promise is unto you and your children and to all them that are afar off.”
It is not for just a certain time period but rather a generation after generation promise. This means it is meant for you and me.
We believe that there is only one God. We do not believe that there is a trinity. The word trinity is not even in the bible. The clarity in which the bible tells us about the oneness of God is undeniable. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He was, and is, and is to come. There can only be one Almighty. Here are just a few scriptures to consider.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.
Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne
JESUS IS GOD
There is a scripture in the bible that shows us exactly who Jesus is. He is more than just a good man, a prophet, or even a rebel who was trying to overthrow the Roman empire. No, Jesus was actually the one and only God in the the flesh. When the prophet Isaiah foretold of his coming in the 9th chapter and 6th verse of his book. It very clearly tells us everything that Jesus would be.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Among all of the accolades and definitions given here it plainly states that He is the mighty God. There are many other corroborating scriptures that point to this fact.
Understandest what thou readest?
This is the question that Phillip asked the eunuch in the book of Acts. His answer is like most of us. “How can I except some man should guide me?” If you feel a little overwhelmed by what you’re reading in the bible, then come to one of our weekly Bible studies or schedule a time for us to come to you.
