In BSFUI, we believe in the God Head (Trinity) consisting the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The three distinct personalities are perfectly united in one (Matt3:16-17, 1 John 5:7). We believe in the infallibility of the word of God as contained in the sixty-six (66) books of the HOLY BIBLE (II Tim 4:13, II Tim 3:15-16). We believe in SALVATION BY FAITH, as salvation is only by GRACE through FAITH in Jesus Christ (John 3:16, Eph 2:8).
The Bible states that backsliding is possible; hence we do not accept the doctrine of “eternal security” (i.e once saved, forever saved). (Matt. 10:32; Heb. 10:26-27, Rom. 11:22). The basic steps of salvation are: Repentance of sin – Luke 13:5 Confession of Faith in Christ Jesus – Rom 10: 9-11. We believe in RESTITUTION an act of correcting past misdeeds in relation with our fellow men. It is subjected to the leading of the Holy Spirit (Luke 19:8; Acts 24:16).
We believe in WATER BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER. These are the foremost ordinances of the Christian church. The Lord Jesus taught baptism by immersion in water (Matt. 3:15).He also commanded the church to observe the Lord’s Supper (Luke 22:19-20, 1 Cor. 11:23-26). We believe in HOLY GHOST BAPTISM: The baptism of the Holy Spirit is for all born again children of God as many as our Lord will call (Acts 2:1-4, Acts 10: 44-46; 1 Cor 12: 4-11, Eph 4:11).
