We believe that there is one God. Jesus is God manifested in the flesh. 1 Timothy 3:16./ Deuteronomy 6:4/ John 10:30. 

Jesus is the name of the Father. John 5:43

Jesus is the name of the Son. Matthew 1:21

The plan of Salvation / The Gospel

We believe there is one way to Heaven, which is obedience to the one Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

1 Corinthians 15:1-4/ Acts 2:38 / 

2 Thessalonians 1:8

Death to sin is repentance. Luke 13:3/ Romans 6:2

Burial is baptism in Jesus name. Romans 6:4

Resurrection is the new birth experience evidenced by speaking in other tongues.

We should constantly endeavor to compel the rest of the world to join us in obedience to the Gospel. Matthew 28:19

Daily Living for Jesus

After we obey the Gospel we should continue living in obedience to God, distinct from the world around us, as lights in the darkness, holy, happy, and humble. We should be learning from our mistakes. We should be growing, learning, and being conformed to the image of Jesus until death or the catching away of God’s people, whichever comes first. Romans 8:29 / 2 Peter 3:18 / Hebrews 12:14
