In the Divine inspiration of the bible as the infallible and authoritative Word of God. 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Psalm 12:6

The Deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, teachings, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and coming return to this earth in power and glory to rule. Revelation 1:13-16, Matthew 17:15-17, John 1:1-14
The Holy Spirit is the third Person in the TRINITY. He has the same power, the same glory with God the Father and God the Son – John 14:16-17; John 15:26; Matt. 3:16; Acts 13:24
The Divine Trinity consists of three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Matthew 3:16-17, Hebrews 9:14
That Man was created in the image of God before whom he walked in innocence, holiness and purity, but by voluntary disobedience and transgression, he fell to the depths of sin. Therefore, the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the finished work at Calvary. Genesis 1:26-31, Psalm 51:5, Hebrews 9:28, Acts 3:19
That Perfection is a spiritual growth for those who have been sanctified and consecrated unto God. 1 Peter 2:21-22, Matthew 5:48
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
In the Baptism of the Holy Ghost for all believers who are living sanctified lives and that it is evidenced by the speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterances. Joel 2:28, Luke 3:16
In Water Baptism by immersion as Jesus commanded and was also Himself baptized. Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38-41
In Restitution where stolen goods are returned to their rightful owners or where an equivalent is given for loss or damage. Luke 19:8-10
THE LORD'S SUPPER
In the Lord’s Supper, practiced to remember His death until He returns. Luke 22:14-19, Acts 2:42, 46
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
The second coming of Jesus and the Rapture of the church (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) and that tribulation (Revelation 3:10) will occur between Christ’s second coming for His bride, and His return in Judgment. We also believe in the 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ on earth, (Revelation 20:1-15) and the Great white throne judgment (Revelation 20: 11-15) as the final judgment when all the wicked will stand before God
