ROMANS 12:18
  18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
 
DEUTERONOMY 14:1
  1 Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.
 
HOSEA 1:10
  10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
 
GALATIANS 3:25-27
 25 But  after  that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
 
1 JOHN 3:1-2
  1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

ROMANS 8:20-30
  20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope;
  21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of The Children of God.
  22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.
  23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
  24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
  25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
  26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
  27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
  28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
  29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
  30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

Statement of Beliefs

1. God the Father:  The eternal, glorious, supreme Creator of the heavens and the earth, the source of all life, and the divine Father of Jesus Christ. God is a personal Spirit being, the epitome of love, wisdom, justice, power, goodness, and mercy. God is the Sovereign Ruler and sustainer of all that exists.
2. Jesus Christ:  Jesus of Nazareth is the Savior, the divine Son of God, begotten of Holy Spirit. Born in the flesh of the virgin Mary, Jesus became fully human, and died for all. God the Father created all things by and through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Messiah who will soon come again to establish His Father’s Kingdom over all the earth.
3. Holy Spirit:  The Spirit of God the Father and Jesus Christ. It is the Life, Love, Wisdom, Mind, Holiness, Power, Mercy, and an entire multitude of the divine characteristics, of God. The Holy Spirit is not a person or a separate third member of the Godhead because there is no trinity. Christians become Children of God when God’s Spirit is first imparted to them.
4. Man:  Created to be in the image and likeness of God. Man is mortal without the possibility of eternal life inherent in himself, except and until he receives the Holy Spirit of God with the laying on of hands at baptism. The very purpose of man's existence is to ultimately be born into the Family of God. Man has a human spirit which has been imparted to the human intellect. The human spirit is not a conscious element of man; rather it enables man to reason, to think, thereby, separating man from the animals. With conversion, the human spirit is united with the Spirit of God, and becomes a Child of God.
5. Church:  The Church is a spiritual entity – not a corporate organization. The Church consists of all the called out brethren – who are the Body of Jesus Christ. The inspired Scriptural name for this spiritual assembly is “The Church of God.
6. Ten Commandments:  The Ten Commandments comprise the supreme points of God’s Law. Breaking any single point makes one guilty of all. Sin is the transgression of the Law of God. The Ten Commandments are spiritual, perfect, holy, just, good, and are, therefore, summed up in two words – Godly Love. The Law of God involves the two great principles of love towards God, and love towards neighbor.
7. Sabbath:  The seventh day of the week, Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, is the Holy Sabbath of the Lord. On this day God directs us to rest from our physical labors and pursuits, and be spiritually rejuvenated. God rested on the seventh day after creation, picturing, not only the weekly Sabbath rest, but also the millennial rest at the end of the first six thousand years of God's plan for man. Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul, along with the first century New Testament Christians, kept the Sabbath.
8. Holy Days:  The seven annual Holy Days listed in Leviticus 23 were ordained by God as “Feasts of the Lord.” They were observed by Jesus Christ, and His disciples. Each Feast has a special prophetic meaning depicting an important step in God's Plan for man. The Feasts and Holy Days are the following: Passover, Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, Trumpets, Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles, and Last Great Day.
9 Gospel of the Kingdom:  Jesus Christ announced the “good news” of the gospel of the Kingdom of God. It is necessary to repent and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to receive salvation. Christ will establish the Kingdom of God over the entire earth at His soon coming return as King of kings.
10. Resurrections:  Jesus was raised from the grave. In the same way, there will be a resurrection to spiritual life of all the faithful saints who have ever lived. Following the millennium, there will be a resurrection back to physical life for all who have ever lived –not having been called by God, and who have not had an opportunity for salvation. Finally, there will be a resurrection of the incorrigibly evil to the lake of fire, which is permanent death.
11. Tithing: Tithing was established by God in the Old Testament and confirmed by Jesus Christ. It is applicable and binding upon Christians today. First tithe is for preaching of the Gospel, and instructing Church brethren. Second tithe is a personal fund that provides the means for observing the Feasts. Third tithe is for the needy, and occurs only in the third and sixth years of a seven year cycle.
12. Divine Healing:  "By His stripes we are healed." It is through the entire ordeal of Jesus Christ's anguish, torment, and suffering, that healing is available to us. When we go to God in faith through anointing, and accept the sacrifice of Christ to cover our sins, our prayer is heard.
13. Clean and Unclean:  God did not create all animals as food for humans. The Bible, sets apart certain “clean” foods that may be eaten; and certain foods called "unclean," that are not to be eaten. Unclean foods violate our bodies, which are the temple wherein God's Holy Spirit dwells. God says, "Become ye holy, as I am holy."
14. Military Service:  God's Commandment forbids killing – purposely taking any human life – directly or indirectly. Bearing arms is contrary to this fundamental doctrine. Christians conscientiously refuse to bear arms. Our Christian duty to God is of a higher nature than our duty arising from man's government.
15. The Bible:  The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God. The Bible reveals the divine authority of God over mankind, and makes known His Plan of salvation. The Bible reveals the purpose for man's existence; which is to ultimately be made into the likeness of God in the eternal Family of God.
16. Angels and Satan:  Angels are spirit beings. The holy angels faithfully serve God and minister to the children of God; whereas Satan and the evil demons rebelled against God. Satan the devil is an evil spirit being who is an enemy of God and an adversary of the children of God. He now has dominion over this world which God has allowed him to rule for 6000 years.
