Our Mission and Vision
- The Church of God (Holiness) is comprised of those baptized, born again Christians who have voluntarily associated themselves together, according to the doctrines and policies of the church, to maintain regular meetings for both devotion and public worship;
To present the Gospel message of Bible doctrines and standards of Christian living and to urge the personal acceptance of the same by all who hear.
To promote the missionary efforts of the church.
To promote Bible study and training for our youth in wholesome Christian activities, and to promote and encourage Christian fellowship both within and without the church.
- There is one God over all, the same yesterday, today and forever, the creator of all things and in whom all things consist. Deuteronomy 6:4 Hebrews 11:3
- There is one savior, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, who is the Supreme Head of the Church, which He redeemed unto God by his own blood. Matthew 3:16- 17
- There is one Holy Spirit, the third person of the Holy Trinity, who is now the representative of the Godhead on Earth, who came from the Father and the Son, to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of Judgment. (John 14:16, 26) John 15:26) God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are three persons , inseparable, of one substance and eternal. (Matt. 28:19) (II Cor. 13:14)
- We emphatically affirm the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, infallibly true as originally, constituting our only divinely authorized rule of faith and practice. (II Tim. 3:16) (II Pet. 1:21)
- Man, in his natural state, is sinful, apart from saving grace and consequently is in need of salvation. (Gen. 6:5) (Ps. 14:2, 3) (Matt. 15:19) (Rom. 3:9-23)
- The Scriptures declare the necessity of repentance, implying a previous conviction for sins, followed by a hearty sorrow for them and immediate abandonment thereof, together with suitable confession to God and man and prompt and honest restitution of all that is due to others, according to his ability; and all such gracious state and experiences, constituting scriptural repentance, etc., must be inwrought by the efficient grace of the Holy Ghost. (Isaiah 55:6, 7) (Matt. 9:13) (Luke. 13:3) (Luke 13:5) (Acts 17:30-31) (II Cor. 7:10) (Ezek. 33:15)
- Justification is a legal act on the part of God, including the forgiveness of sins and the impartation of personal righteousness, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Jer. 36:3) (Ps. 130:4) (Acts 13:38, 39) (Rom 5:1) (John 3:7) (Rev. 19:8) (rom. 8:16)
- Regeneration is the quickening to spiritual life by the Holy Ghost, of the sinner who is dead in trespasses and sins, which gracious act of Divine Spirit accompanies justification. (Isa. 55:3) ( John 3:3) ( Eph.2:1) (col. 2:13) (Titus 3:5)
- The scriptures affirm the necessity of entire sanctification, or deliverance from inbred sin, implying the complete purification, of the nature from depravity, or inherited sin, and complete renewal of the nature from Holiness, whereby the child of God is enabled to love God perfectly and to serve him in righteousness and true Holiness. This gracious act of purification, or entire sanctification, is accomplished instantaneously for the believer by the Holy Spirit and is distinct from and takes place subsequent to the believer’s regeneration, being preceded by a definite conviction of remaining inbred sin and a definite faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for the entire sanctification of the nature. (Lev. 11:44, 45) (Luke 1:73-75) (John 17:17) (I Thess. 4:3, 5:23, 24) (Heb. 10:14, 15). This work of entire sanctification attended by the infilling of the Holy Spirit and not by any special manifestation or gifts, such as speaking in unknown tongues.
- The New Testament Scriptures teach that there is one Church, which is composed only of those who have savingly believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and who willingly submit themselves to His divine order concerning the ministries of the Church through the instrumentalities of God-chosen elders and deacons, ordained in the Church by laying on of the hands of the presbytery. The attributes of the Church are unity, spirituality, visibility and catholicity. (Matt 16:18) (Eph. 4.4) (Col. 1:18) (I Tim. 3:1-7) (Titus 1:5)
- The second advent of our savior, Jesus Christ, is pre-millennial and visible. The children of God are admonished to look for the personal coming of Christ with confident, hope and with the assurance that at His appearing they will become the happy partakers of His glory in the Kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world. (Dan. 7:13, 14)) (Matt. 24:30, 31) (Acts 1:11) I Thess. 4:15-17) (Rev. 22:20)
- The scriptures affirm the resurrection of the body, the judgment of all mankind, the everlasting punishment of the wicked, and the eternal happiness of the righteous. (John 5:28, 29) (I Cor. 15:52-55) Rom. 14:10) (II Cor. 5:10) (Rev. 20:12, 13) (John 14:1-3) (Ps. 9:17) (Matt. 25:46) (Rev. 21:8)
- We urge our people to embrace the Bible doctrine of Divine healing and to offer the prayer of faith for the healing of the sick, according to: (James 5:14-16) ( Acts 4:10) (Luke 9:2) (Luke 10:9)
- Recognizing the fact that water baptism is an outward sign of an inward work of grace wrought in the heart by the Holy Ghost, we believe that this ordinance should be observed by all born-again child of God.
- Believing that the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper represents our redemption through Christ, we recommend that this ordinance be reverently observed regularly.
