The one true God has revealed Himself as the “I Am,” the Creator and Redeemer of mankind. We believe God eternally exists in three persons called the Trinity which is comprised of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 43:10-11; Ephesians 4:5-6).
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death, resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of God (Hebrews 1:3).
Given at Pentecost, we believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father available to all Christians. It was sent by Jesus after His Ascension to empower the Church to preach the gospel throughout the whole earth (John 14:15-17; Acts 1:4-8; 2:1-4).
The Anointed Church of Jesus Christ recognizes that the Bible is the Holy Scripture of God written words by His holy vessels and consecrated by His Son Jesus Christ (Luke 24:44-49). The Bible shall be the rule and guide of faith as set forth in the Statement of Beliefs. The writings by Moses, the Prophets, and in the Psalms, refer to the entire Old Testament. In other words, the entire Old Testament points to the Messiah. We believe the Statement of Beliefs to be an accurate summary of what the Scripture teaches.
The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are the Holy Word of God upon which the Body of Christ must rely for accuracy and authenticity. The Anointed Church of Jesus Christ accepts the Bible as the revealed will of God, as the all-sufficient rule of faith and standard for daily living (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).
Man’s only hope is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is by faith through grace and demonstrated in repentance leading to a relationship with Jesus Christ (John 3:3; Romans 12:13-15; Ephesians 2:8).
We believe that following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new believer is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water by full immersion in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in a unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (representing the body and blood of Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross (Mark 16:16; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
The act of separation from that which is evil and dedicating oneself entirely to God and that which is good, upright, and morally pure (Romans 12:1, 2; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Peter 1:16).
The Church is the representative of Jesus on earth and is to carry out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19; Luke 19:10).
A divinely called and ordained minister has been provided by God to lead the church in evangelism, worship, building the body, and general leadership of the church (Mark 16:15-20; John 4:23-24; Ephesians 4:11, 16).
It is God’s will that all His children operate and manifest His might on the earth. God also performs signs and wonders in the process of delivering His people. Jointly, signs and wonders are God’s power displays that serve to confirm that His hand is with His messengers (servants).
Miracles, signs and wonders are the trademark of the Kingdom of God (Isaiah 8:18; John 14:12). The Kingdom of God realities are so when many witness the miracle hand of God. This is what Jesus Christ did and came to establish on the earth – The Kingdom of God (Luke 17:21).
The resurrection and rapture of all Christians dead and alive to meet Christ in the air is the Blessed Hope. The Second Coming of Christ includes the rapture and a return to earth by Christ with His saints for a thousand-year reign (Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:17, 30; Romans 8:23; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52).
There will be a final judgment at which all men will be judged (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20).
All of God’s children will reign forever in a new heaven and a new earth (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21, 22).
