Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;  Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. - Matthew 9:37, 38

The Bible
 
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, giving a true history of the creation of heaven, earth, and humanity and containing a correct prophecy of the ages to come regarding heaven, earth, and the destiny of humanity.  Moreover, there is no salvation outside of what is taught in its pages.
 
God
 
There is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4).  He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living things.  He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), in the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).
 
Father
 
God is a Spirit (John 4:24).  He is the Eternal One, the Creator of all things, and the Father of all humanity by creation.  He is the First and the Last, and beside Him there is no God (Isaiah 44:6).  There was no God formed before Him; neither shall there be any after Him (Isaiah 43:10).
 
Son
 
Jesus is the Son of God according to the flesh (Romans 1:3) and the very God Himself according to the Spirit (Matthew 1:23). Jesus is the Christ (Matthew 16:16); the Creator of all things (Colossians 1:16-17); God with us (Matthew 1:23); God made flesh (John 1:1-14); God manifested in the flesh (I Timothy 3:16); He which was, which is, and which is to come, the Almighty (Revelation 1:8); the mighty God, everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).  Jesus Himself testified of His identity as God when He said, "He that hath seen me hath seen the Father" (John 14:7-11) and "I and my Father are one" (John 10:30).
 
 
Holy Ghost

The Holy Ghost is not a third person in the Godhead, but rather the Spirit of God (the Creator), the Spirit of the resurrected Christ. The Holy Ghost comes to dwell in the hearts and lives of everyone who believes and obeys the gospel, as the Comforter, Sustainer, and Keeper (John 14:16-26; Romans 8:9-11).

Salvation

Salvation consists of deliverance from all sin and unrighteousness through the blood of Jesus Christ. The New Testament experience of salvation consists of Repentance from sin, Water Baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, after which the Christian is to live a godly life (Acts 2:36-41). 

 
Water Baptism
 
We believe that you must be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (see Acts 2:38).
 
Baptism of the Holy Ghost
 
We believe that you must receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues in order to be saved.  (See Acts 2:1-4).
 
Holiness
 
We are commanded to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world (Titus 2:12) and warned that, without holiness, no one shall see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).  We believe that the call to holiness pertains to both inward purification and outward sanctification.  (See Romans 12:1; II Corinth. 7:1; and James 4:4).
