1. THE SCRIPTURES IS INSPIRED
We believe in the Bible as the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to men, the
infallible rule of faith and conduct, and superior to conscience and reason, but not
contrary to reason (John 16:12,13, ; Matthew 5:18, 2 Tim. 3:15, 17; 1 Pet. 1:23-25; Heb.
4:12).
 
2. THE ONE TRUE GOD
We believe in the one true God eternally existing in Three Persons – Father, Son and
Holy Spirit, has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM,” and
has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and
association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Mark
12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19).
 
3. ETERNAL SON OF GOD BECAME MAN
We believe that the eternal Son of God became man. (John 1:1,2,14; Luke 1:35, Romans
3:24-25; I Peter 1:3-5, Hebrews 7:25; 9:24, Acts 1:9, Romans 8:34; I John 2:1,2).
 
4. MAN: HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION
We Believe Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in our
image and after our likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of
redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31; Gen. 3:17; Ro. 5:12-21).
 
5. THE SALVATION OF MAN
Conditions of Salvation: The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all
men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy
Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of
eternal life (Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Ro. 10:13-15; Luke 24:47).
Evidences of Salvation: The inward evidence to the believer of his/her salvation is the
direct witness of the Spirit (Ro. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of
holiness (1 Thess. 4:7, 2 Tim.1:9).
 
6. BAPTISM IN WATER
We believe in the ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed (as
commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts
have believed in Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world
that they have died with Christ and that they have also been released to walk with Him
in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Ro. 6:4).
 
7. THE LORD’S SUPPER (COMMUNION)
We believe in The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and fruit of the vine,
is the symbol expressing our sharing in a memorial to His suffering and death, and a
prophecy of His second coming, and is enjoined to all believers “until He comes” (John
6:48,51,53-5 Luke 22:19,20; 2 Pet. 1:4; 1 Cor. 11:25).
 
8. THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER (HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM)
We believe that all believers should ardently expect and earnestly seek the Promise of
the Father, which is the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in
other tongues. With it comes the infilling of power for life and service, and the
bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts
1:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-31). This experience may be distinct from and subsequent to the
experience of the New Birth (Acts 2:38; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9).
 
9. SANCTIFICATION PROCESS
We believe the sanctification process by the power of the Holy Spirit we strive to obey
the command, “Be ye holy, for I am holy.” Sanctification is the will of God for all
believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word
(Heb. 12:14; 1 Pet. 1:15,16; 1 Thess. 5:23,24; 1 John 2:6).
10. THE CHURCH AND ITS MISSION
We believe the church is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the
Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each
believer is an integral part of the church, and their names are written in the Lamb’s
Book of Life. (I Thess. 2:4)
 
11. MINISTRY
We believe of Divinely called and Scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by
our Lord for a two-fold purpose: (1) The evangelization of the world, and (2) The
edification of the Body of Christ (Mark 15:16,20; Eph. 4:11-13).
12. DIVINE HEALING
We believe in divine healing and deliverance from sickness is provided for in the
atonement of Christ and is the privilege of all believers (Isa. 53:4, 5; Matt. 8:16, 17; Mark
16:18; John 5:14, , James 5:14-16).
 
13. THE BLESSED HOPE
We believe in the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their
translation, together with those who are alive and remain unto the Lord, is imminent
and is the blessed hope of the church (1 Thess. 4:16; Ro. 6:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor.
15:51,52).
 
14. THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS
We believe in the revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of
national Israel, and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth are Scriptural promises
and our hope (Zechariah 14:5, 2 Thess. 1:7; Rev. 19:1l-16; Ro. 11:25; Rev. 20:l-7).
 
15. THE LAKE OF FIRE
We believe in the lake of fire, the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet,
and whosoever is not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall be consigned to
everlasting punishment in the lake which burns fire and brimstone, which is the second
death (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-49, Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15).
 
16. THE NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH
We believe in the new heavens and new earth, as promised in the Scriptures wherein
righteousness dwells (2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21:l). Dancing (Psalms 30:11);
 
17. WORSHIP
We believe that there are 14 biblical ways to worship God. Dancing (Psalms
30:11); Praise (Psalm 66:8, 17); Clapping of hands (Psalm 47:1); Lifting of hands
(Psalm 63:4); Thanksgiving (Psalm 69:30); Joyful exuberant shouting of praise (Psalm
66:1, 2); Joyful Songs (Psalm 126); Use of musical instruments (Psalm 33:2); Kneeling
(Psalm 95:6); Worship with faces on grounds, bowing down (Nehemiah 8:6); Speaking
in Tongues (Acts 10:46); Quiet, reflective, meditation (Psalm 104:33-34); Laughter and
Joy (Psalm 126:2; Job 8:21); Be a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1).
 
18. WORD OF GOD
We believe in the dynamic power of the written Word of God. Hebrews 11; Galatians
3;11; Romans 3:17, John 17:17; Hebrews 4:12-16; 10:23; James 3:3-6)
 
19. PROSPERITY
We believe in holistic prosperity for all (3 John 2; Psalm 35:27; Deuteronomy 8:18-19;
28:11, Psalms 84:11)
 
20. MARRIAGE
We believe that marriage has been ordained by God. JRM Vallejo Church defines
“marriage” as the exclusive covenantal union of one man and one woman in which such
union is a lifetime commitment. A civil government’s sanction of a union will be
recognized as a legitimate marriage by the church only to the extent that it is consistent
with the definition of “marriage” found in these Articles. (Genesis 1:27-28, Genesis 2:21-
25, Hebrews 13:4, Ephesians 5:22-33)
 
21. HUMAN SEXUALITY
We believe that legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage. Hence,
sexual activities outside of marriage (referred to in the New Testament as “porneia”–
πορνεια) including but not limited to, adultery, premarital sex, homosexuality, and
pedophilia are inconsistent with the teachings of the Bible and the Church. Further,
lascivious conduct, transgender behavior, and the creation and/or distribution and/or
viewing of pornography, are incompatible with the biblical witness. (Matthew 15:19, 1
Corinthians 6:9-11, Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:27)
