What We Believe

 

Fundamental Doctrine

The basic and fundamental doctrine of Christian Apostolic Church is the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the Name of Jesus for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. (Acts 2:1-18, 2:38-39; Acts 10:44-48)

About the Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (II Timothy 3:15-17)

About God

There is one God.  He was manifested in flesh as Jesus Christ and died for our sins.  He rose again on the third day and now lives in us through the Holy Ghost.  He is both God and man. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16)

About Sin and Salvation 

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation.  Salvation comes by grace through faith based on Jesus Christ's atoning sacrifice. (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)

The saving Gospel is the Good News that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again.  We obey the Gospel through repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the receipt of the Holy Spirit (resurrection). (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17; I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4)

About the Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His Church.  In the end, there will be a final resurrection and final judgment.  The righteous will inherit eternal life and the unrighteous, eternal death. (I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15)
