Introducing our… 
                                     TENETS OF FAITH 

  • We accept the Bible as God’s holy Word, inspired, inerrant, and infallible. We believe the Bible to be God’s written revelation of Himself to mankind and our guide in all matters of faith, therefore we look to the Bible as our highest authority for doctrine, practice, organization and discipline. (2Tim. 3:15; 1Thess. 2:13; 2Peter 1:21). 


  • We affirm that there is one God, eternally existing, and manifested - As Father : The creator of the haven and the earth and everything that exist. - As Son : He came to accomplish the work of redemption. - As Holly Spirit to bring together   people from different  nations, tribes and people, to form the body of Christ. 

  • We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in the physical miracles He performed, in His atoning death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory at His second coming. We profess that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for the salvation of sinful man. We believe that in sanctification by the blood of Christ one is made holy.

  • We affirm the present ministry of Holy Spirit by whose indwelling we are able to live godly lives and have power for service. 

  • We believe in the ultimate unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

These “Inspired Bible Teachings” constitute the doctrinal distinctive which help make the Assembly of Christ  remarquable among the many organizations preaching the fundamental principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These Teachings are listed below, along with selected scriptural references, are an indication of our continuing commitment to walk in the light to the best of our knowledge and ability. 

REPENTANCE
Repentance is both a condition and an act; it is the state of being in godly sorrow for sins committed and the act of returning from and forsaking those sins. “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.” 2Corinthians 7:10. Mark 1:5; Luke 13:3; Acts 3:19. The Repentance is a necessary for the Justification. 

JUSTIFICATION
Justification is both a state and an act; it is the state of being void of offense toward God brought about by the act of God in forgiving actual transgression for which one has repented. It is the result of repentance and faith. “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God thought our  Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1. Romans 3:23-26; Titus 3:7. Justification precedes Regeneration.  

REGENERATION
Regeneration is an act of God performed in the justified heart whereby new, spiritual life is generated. Man is dead in trespasses and sin through Adam; he must be quickened or regenerated through Christ. It is a vital part of the plan of salvation by faith. “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit.” Titus 3:5. Ephesians 2:1-5; John 5:24. Regeneration is simultaneous with the new birth.  
                
BORN AGAIN
To be born again is to become a new creature in Christ and a child of God. This new birth is the result of repentance and justification. It is a definite and instantaneous experience wrought in the heart accompanied by a definite inner witness. There is no other way to enter the Kingdom of God. John 3:3-8; 1Peter 1:23. The new birth is necessary for the experience of Sanctification. 

SANCTIFICATION
Sanctification is the second definite work of grace, subsequent to justification. It is an instantaneous work wrought in the regenerated heart by the Holy Spirit with the blood of Jesus. Whereas in justification an individual’s personal transgression are blotted out, in sanctification the Adamic nature, or inbred sin, is eradicated by the blood of Christ, or crucified. Romans 6:6-7, “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.” Romans 5:2; 1Corinthians 1:30; 1Thessalonians 4:3-7; Hebrews 13:12-13; 1John 1:9. The Sanctification restores man to holiness in Christ and enables him, by God’s grace, to live a life of holiness. It also makes one eligible for the baptism of the Holy Spirit. 

HOLINESS
Holiness is the state of being free from sin, a condition made possible by the experience of sanctification. God requires man to live without sin in this present world and provided the means through the shed blood of Christ. “For the grace of God that bring salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.” Titus 2:11-12. “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” Hebrew 12:14. Luke 1:74-75; 1Thessalonians 4:7; Ephesians 4:24; 1Peter 1:15-16. Holiness is a necessity not only for the individual but also for the Church, the Body of Christ. Ephesians 1:4; Ephesians 5:27; 2Corinthians 7:1; Psalms 93:5. 

WATER BAPTISM
Water baptism is the act of being immersed in water according to the commandment and instructions of Christ. This ordinance has no power to wash away sin but is the answer of good conscience toward God, representing the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ through which one has obtained new life. Only those who have already been born again are eligible for water baptism. “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” 1Peter 3:21. Jesus teaches us to baptize “in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19. Mark 1:8-10; Mark 16:15-16; John 3:22-23; Acts 10:47-48; Acts 16:33; Romans 6:3-5. 

BAPTISM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
When a person is sanctified wholly he is eligible for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This indwelling is a definite and instantaneous experience described in the Scripture by the word “baptism” and is always accompanied by the utterance. It has no reference to water baptism, regeneration, or sanctification. It is the filling of the temple already made clean by sanctification. It is not a work of grace but a gift of God in answer to the prayer of Christ. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power for service. “But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Acts 1:8. Matthew 3:11; Luke 11:13; Acts 1:4; Acts 19:2; 1Corinthians 3:16-17. 

FRUIT OF SPIRIT
The Spirit-filled life will manifested the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” the fruit of the Spirit cannot be manifested by the flesh or by human nature. It is divine in origin and must spring from a Spirit-filled heart. Ephesians 5:9. 

THE GIFTS AND GRACES IN THE CHURCH
The gifts of the Spirit were set in the Church to be operated by the Spirit according to the will of God. They are manifested through individual members, but individuals do not personally posses the gifts. Therefore, since the gifts are given to the Church and not to individuals, a spiritual gift cannot be taken away by one who leaves the Church. These gifts were all operated in the Church before it went into the Dark Ages, and were all restored to the Church when it arose out of darkness. Romans 12:6-9; 1Corinthians 12:4-11 + 28-31; Ephesians 4:8-13. 

SIGNS FOLLOWING BELIEVERS
Miraculous signs and wonders will accompany the works and ministry of true believers. These signs are recorded in Mark 16:17-20, “And these signs shall follow then that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover… and they went forth, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.” Romans 15:18-19; Hebrews 2:4. 

THE LORD’S SUPPER
The Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ and is sacred ordinance which  we are commanded to observe . The Supper  consist of unleavened bread, which represents His body broken on the cross for our sins, and the wine, which represents the blood of Christ shed for our sanctification. This ordinance is observed in commemoration of Christ and His death . Only sinless and consecrated Christians are eligible to partake of this Supper. Luke 22:17-20; 1Corinthians 10:16-17; 1Corinthians 11:23-30. 

TITHING AND GIVING
Tithing is the paying of one tenth of our  income into the treasury of the Church. It began with Abraham, continued under the law, and received Christ’s approval. “Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone,” Matthew 23:23. The obligation for tithing is not fulfilled by giving ten percent to the poor or to some good cause but only by paying it into the Church treasury. Giving differs from and is in addition to tithing. Both are parts of God’s plan to finance His work on earth.. Genesis 14:18-20; Malachi 3:10; Luke 11:42; 1Corinthians9:13-14; 1Corinthians 9:6-9; Hebrews 7:1-10. 

PRE-MILLENNIAL SECOND COMING OF JESUS
Christ is coming back to earth again. First, to resurrect the dead saints and to catch away the living saints to meet Him in the air, where they will attend the marriage supper of the Lamb. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord,” 1Thessalonians 4:16-17; 1Corinthians 15:51-52.Second, to return with the saints to reign on earth a thousand years. “…And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection,” Revelation 20:4-5; Zechariah 14:4-9; Revelation 5:10; Revelation 19:11-16; Revelation 20:4-6.

RESURRECTION
All the dead, both righteous and wicked, will be resurrected. The righteous dead will be raised in the first resurrection which is at Christ appearing. The resurrection of wicked dead will occur after the thousand years reign of Christ on earth. 2And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust,” Acts 24:15; Daniel 12:2; John 5:28-29; 1Corinthians 15:12-23; Revelation 20:5-6. 

ETERNAL LIFE FOR THE RIGHTEOUS
Those who die in the Lord and those who are serving Him when He returns will receive a reward of eternal life, eternal happiness in the presence of the Lord. “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into eternal life,” Matthew 25:46; Luke 18;29-30; John 10:27-28; Romans 6:22; 1John 5:11-13. 

ETERNAL PUNISHMENT FOR WICKED
Our life in this present world determines our eternal reward. The unconverted and wicked are doomed to eternal punishment, from which there is no escape, no liberation or annihilation. Matthew 25:46; 2Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 20:10-15; Revelation 21:8.
