What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be the direct and absolute word of God. (II Tim. 3:16) "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." The Bible is given to us by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost as it moved upon the tongues and pens of men who had received a special anointing of God for this express purpose. (II Peter 1 :21) "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: But holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." We believe the Bible to be the only means of God's Doctrine, instruction and comfort to the church today, infallible in its authority, singular in interpretation, and man's only avenue of access to God.
We believe in the One, everlasting and eternal God who is infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose, and who possesses absolute indivisible deity. This true God has revealed Himself as the Father in creation, through His Son in redemption and as the Holy Ghost by emanation (I Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; II Cor. 5:19; Joel 2:28). The first of all commandments is "Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God is one LORD:" (Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29). Both Old and New Testaments affirm the solemn fact that there is but one God (Duet. 6:4; Gal. 3:20; Eph. 4:6).
We believe that Jesus was both human and divine, and further that the Godhead be understood to mean all of the fullness of God (I Tim. 3:16; Col. 1:19, 2:9). We believe that Jesus was Mary's son and Mary's God, Creator and creature, God manifest in the flesh. The flesh of Jesus was the same as ours with the exception that it had no sin. Jesus is the Eternal Father made visible, apart from whom there is no God. At the final consummation of all things, there will only be one God, and that will be our Lord Jesus Christ (Zech. 14:9).
The basic and fundamental doctrine of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Jesus Christ, Inc. shall be the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (Acts 2:4; 2:38; John 3:5).
