Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit, with the primary evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, is for all believers as promised by John the Baptist, Jesus, and Peter. The fulfillment of this promise was witnessed by early disciples of Christ and operates in many present-day disciples of Jesus Christ.

ACTS 2:4, 10:44-47, 19:1-6
We believe divine healing may be received by the laying on of hands by the elders, by the prayer of an anointed person gifted by the Holy Spirit for healing the sick, or by a direct act of receiving this provision by faith. We believe God has used doctors, medicines, and other means as way to healing people naturally.

Heaven & Hell
We believe Scripture clearly speaks on the doctrines of eternal punishment for the unsaved and eternal salvation and complete happiness for the saved — a literal hell for the unsaved and literal Heaven for the saved.
MATTHEW 25:34,41,46 | LUKE 16:19-31 | JOHN 14:1-3 | REVELATION 20:11-15
We affirm the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the saints, the millennium, and the final judgment. The final judgment will determine the eternal status of both the saints and the unbelievers, determined by their relationship to Jesus Christ. We affirm with the Bible the final state of the new heavens and the new earth.
