OUR DOCTRINAL STATEMENT
As it is important for every body of believers to remain knowledgeable concerning all of its beliefs and tenets, herein are the beliefs and teachings of the O'Fallon Apostolic Assembly.
We believe that the Holy Bible is the infallible Word of God. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for Doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto good works." (II Timothy 3:16-17).
We fully believe in the mystery of the Godhead. We believe that Jesus was both human and divine,and further, that the Godhead should be understood to mean all the fullness of God. We believe that Jesus was Mary's son and Mary's God, Creator and creature, God manifested 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. We believe at the final consummation of all things there will be our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that everyone must be born again to enter into the Kingdom of God (St. John 3:3). we further believe that to experience the new birth; one must be baptized in water the name of the Lord Jesus Christ by immersion, and be baptized with the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues, as the Spirit of the Lord giveth utterance. Not only on the day of Pentecost, but for all time. Speaking with the tongue is the "sound" of the Spirit, heard by every believer.
We believe that in order to escape the judgment of God, and to have the hope of enjoying the glory of life eternal, that one must live a life that is holy and acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service.
