The Godhead - There are not three essences (Tritheistic heresy) or only one being (Oneness or Modalistic heresy) in the Godhead. The Godhead is a Trinity of Divine Persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) in perfect unity (Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:7; etc.). Each of these Persons is coequal, co-eternal, and are God (John 1:1-3; Acts 5:3-4; 1 John 5:7; 2 John 3; etc.). While there are Three separate and distinct Members of the Godhead, they are one in essence and make up the one God, that is one in essence or substance (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 5:7).
The Scriptures - The Scriptures (66 books of the Bible) are inspired of God, and are the final court of appeals for all matters of doctrine and practice. The rule of interpretation is to always take the Bible literally where it is at all possible; if figurative or symbolic language is used, one should look for the literal meaning it intends to convey (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 22:18-19).
Fall of Man - All men are made innocent and upright
(Ecclesiastes 7:29). Through man's free will he chose to sin, thus
incurring the full penalty of the broken law, the loss of eternal
life and eternal damnation. Man is damned for their own personal
sins should they refuse to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. The
guilt and damnation of Adam’s original sin rests solely upon
Adam and not upon his descendants (Genesis 3:1-7; Ecclesiastes 7:29;
Ezekiel 18:20; John 3:16-18; Romans 3:23; 5:12-21).
Jesus Christ - Jesus Christ was and is God manifested in the flesh (John 1:1-14; 1 Timothy 3:16). He was born of a virgin, lived a perfect and sinless life, died for man's sins on the cross, shed His blood for remission of sins (Mark 14:24; Acts 20:28; Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14; Hebrews 9:14), was buried, rose again bodily by the power of God on the third full day, bodily ascended on high, now is bodily seated at the right hand of God the Father, and will return bodily (Matthew 1:18-23; Mark 16:19; Luke 1:30-35; John 19:38-20:18; Acts 1:9-11; 2:22-36; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; 1 Timothy 3:16).
Salvation - God has purchased the full salvation of man (body, soul, and spirit) through the death of His Son on the cross. Salvation is offered to all, and all may receive it through faith in the Son of God. This salvation is universal in the truth that it is offered to all, but is limited in the truth that only a few choose to accept it (Matthew 7:13-14; 20:16; 22:14; John 3:16; 1 Timothy 2:4; Titus 2:11; 2 Peter 3:9; Revelation 22:17). Through this salvation man is free from all sin, and given the power to live clean in this world (Matthew 18:3; Luke 13:3, 5; John 3:3-7; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; Galatians 5:24; Ephesians 2:8-10; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 John 3:6-10).
Sanctification - Sanctification means a separation from a life of sin and wickedness to a life of holiness. All truly born-again believers are sanctified in some degree, but they are not wholly sanctified or made perfect in love. A believer can seek God and receive whole sanctification by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, such is an instantaneous work of God in the believer who acts in faith. This whole or entire sanctification is part of the complete salvation Christ purchased for us on the cross! (Acts 20:32; 26:18; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 6:11; 2 Timothy 2:19-21; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-4; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 2:11; 10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:2; Jude 1))
Holiness - Holiness is God's requirement for the saved. All who are truly saved will live a lifestyle of holiness before both God and man (Micah 6:8; Matthew 5:48; 7:21; Luke 22:24; Acts 10:35; Romans 6:22-23; 1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 John 2:3-5; 5:18; Jude 21; Revelation 21:7-8).
Hell - All have sinned (Romans 3:23) and are destined for eternal torment in hell. Only through salvation can one escape such punishment. Those who sin and fail to repent and forsake their sins will spend eternity apart from God in eternal torment. Hell is a literal place of fire and brimstone, and is the eternal home of the damned (Luke 16:19-31; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8).
Power from on high - The power from on high is for all born-again believers to receive, and is initially evidenced by speaking in other tongues and the continued evidence is the power to be witnesses for Christ. A believer that has been endued with this power can do the works of Christ and even greater works with all the gifts of the Spirit. These gifts will not cease until we are made perfect by Christ at the resurrection as is seen in 1 Corinthians 13:10. Believers are to be wary of any "gift" that would cause one to be more focused on the gift than the Giver of the gift, the Holy Spirit. They also should avoid flaunting spiritual gifts for this is rebellious and demonic (Isaiah 28:11-12; John 7:37-39; 14:12; Acts 1:4-5, 8; 2:4, 32-33, 38-39; 5:32; 8:14-17; 10:44-46; 11:15-16; 19:1-7).
The Rapture of the Church - The rapture of the church takes place before the tribulation period and the revealing of the antichrist. No one who is born-again and living a life of holiness, as any truly born-again person does live, will have to go through the tribulation period. Jesus even taught for His saints to "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man" (Luke 21:36) proving that believers will escape the coming judgment on the world. Paul taught that "God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Thessalonians 5:9) which also shows that believers will not have to go through the tribulation period (Luke 21:36; John 14:2-3; 1 Corinthians 15:23, 51-58; Ephesians 5:27; Philippians 3:11, 20-21; Colossians 3:4; 1 Thessalonians 2:19; 3:13; 4:13-18; 5:9; 2 Thessalonians 2:1, 6-8; James 5:7-8; 1 Peter 5:4; 1 John 2:28; 3:2; Revelation 1:19).
