  1. WE BELIEVE the Full Gospel includes the proclamation of both the eternal power of Calvary and the potential power of Pentecost; the baptizing power of Jesus Christ for salvation because of Calvary and the filling/controlling power of the Holy Ghost for service and holy victorious living because of Pentecost (Acts 20:27, 1:8).
  2. WE BELIEVE in the perpetuity and continuing ecclesiastical value of all spiritual gifts for the edification of believers and the body of Christ until the end of this church age is consummated by the glorious event; the return of our Lord Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 12-14; Romans 12:3-7; Ephesians 4:11-12; I Corinthians 13:10).
  3. WE BELIEVE in the Divine personhood of the Holy Spirit and His present-day ministry to believers which includes the sovereign distribution of spiritual gifts to believers for empowerment for service in the contemporary church (I Corinthians 12:7-11).
  4. WE BELIEVE in Jesus Christ as the sovereign giver of spiritual gifts to the church. We believe spiritual gifts are given for the perfecting of the Saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edifying of the body of Christ and are given without regard to ethnicity, social class, or gender (Ephesians 4:7-12; Galatians 3:26-28).
  5. WE BELIEVE in the autonomy of the local church as an independent entity with regard to matters of government, polity, operation, and discipline (I Corinthians 5:5; I Thessalonians 5:21; 2 Thessalonians 3:6, 14-15; Acts 6:3-5; 11:22, 14:23; Titus 1:5).
  6. WE BELIEVE in the value of biblical terminology of leadership in the contemporary church: Bishop, Overseer, Pastor, Minister, Elder, and Deacon. We believe all of these are designations for servant-leaders (Jeremiah 3:15; Acts 20:28; 2 Corinthians 6:4; I Timothy 3:1-7).
  7. WE BELIEVE in the formal and intentional praise and worship of the Almighty God as a proper spirit-led corporate acknowledgement and response to His person and Work (Psalm 46:50; St. John 4:23).
