Apostolic Doctrine and Fellowship

According to the Bible, our Creed, Discipline, Rules of Order and Doctrine is the Word of God as taught and revealed by the Holy Ghost (John 14:26, 1 Corinthians 2:9-13) in scripture.  “All scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works”, (2 Timothy 3:16-17).  We stand for all scriptures when the scriptures are rightly divided.

 

The Being and Unity of God

“God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth” (John 4:24).  There is but one Spirit; therefore, there is but one God from whom and in whom there is a divine three-fold manifestation as God manifests Himself to us as the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

As Father, He is the Creator, source, origin, and progenitor of all things.  He is the Universal Father and Father of Eternity, without body or parts.  He is self-existent; that is existent of Himself, and by Himself, omniscient.

The greatest mystery of all times is His Sonship. In order to save man from sin, God entered into the world through a virgin conception and birth, thus assuming a personality.  He took on a body for the purpose of the redemption, through death, of those who had sinned and had fallen short of the Glory of God.  He, as the Son, is God’s Lamb that taketh away the sins of the world.

He is the Holy Ghost, regenerator and perfecter of all who believe in Jesus Christ.  He is the organizer and element of the church, the divine executor of the world.  He is the Holy Ghost, our sanctifier; in us, conforming us to the image and likeness of God.

 

The Godhead

We fully believe in the mystery of the Godhead.  We believe that Jesus was both divine and human, further, that the Godhead be understood to mean all of the fullness of God (Colossians 1:19 and 2:9).  We believe that Jesus was both Mary’s God and Mary’s Creator.  We believe that Jesus is God manifest in the flesh.  We believe that the flesh of Jesus was the same as ours with the exception that He had no sin.  We believe that Jesus was the Eternal Father made visible, apart from whom there is no God.  We believe that at the final consummation of all things there will be only one God, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

 

Obtaining Membership in the Body of Christ

One must be baptized in Jesus name and filled with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.  Believe that Jesus is God and that when we see GOD we will see JESUS and JESUS only.  “For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body”, and that baptism is the baptism of water and the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Galatians 3:26-28; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-6; 2 Corinthians 5:17).
