AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
Second Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of Pennsylvania of the Church of God in Christ
WE BELIEVE in the trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
WE BELIEVE that man by nature is sinful and unholy, being born in sin, he needs to be born again, sanctified and cleansed from all sin by the blood of Jesus.
WE BELIEVE that man is saved by confessing and forsaking his sins and believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, and becoming a child of God, he may and should claim the inheritance of the sons of God, namely the Baptism in the Holy Ghost.
WE BELIEVE in the Baptism in the Holy Ghost with the sign and seal of speaking with other tongues as recorded in Acts 2:4, 10:46, 19:6 and is given to all who ask for it.
WE DO NOT BELIEVE that we are baptized with the Holy Ghost in order to be saved or become sons of God, but because we are saved and already sons of God, the Holy Ghost being a keeper and a teacher.
WE BELIEVE in divine healing for the body provided for us in the atonement.
WE BELIEVE in the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and the Rapture of the Church. We admonish all who have this hope in them to purify themselves even as He is pure.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
