Our Beliefs

The doctrine and beliefs of ROSCC can be seen here in the Apostles Creed and the Sixteen Statements of What We Believe.

We believe in God the Father Almighty maker of heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ his only son our Lord. Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit born of the Virgin Mary suffered under Pontius Pilate was crucified dead and buried. He descended into hell and on the third day he arose from the dead: He ascended into heaven and He sits at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Christian Church the Communion of Saints the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body and Life everlasting.

The Scriptures Inspired

We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21).

The One True God

We believe there is one God eternally existing in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 5:17-30)

The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the father, and in his personal future return to this earth power and glory to rule over the nations (Isaiah 7:14; Hebrews 7:26; Acts 2:22; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11)

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is available to all believe who will ask for it. We further believe this experience is distinct from and follows the new birth, that it was the normal experience of New Testament Christians, and that it brings an endowment of power for Christian life and service (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4, 8:2-4).

The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

We believe the baptism of the believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the spirit of God gives the utterance. This speaking in tongues is the same in essence as the gift of tongues but is different in its purpose and use (Acts 2:4; Corinthians 12:4-10,28).

The Fall of Man

We believe man was created good and upright; but man voluntarily sinned and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God (Genesis 1:26, 27;2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19)

The Salvation of Man

We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (Luke 24:47; Romans 8:16, 10:13-15; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7

Ordinances of the Church

We believe the ordinances of the Church are (a) the communion of the Lord’s Supper and (b) baptism in water by immersion, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, the Holy ghost (2 Peter 1:4; 1 Corinthians 11:26; Mathew 28:19; Roman 6:4).



We believe the Scriptures teach a life of holiness. Sanctification is a separation from that which is evil and a dedication unto God. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are able to obey the command: “Be you holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15, 16; Hebrews 12:14; Philippians 2:12, 13).

The Church

We believe the Church is the body of Christ. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is a part of the “general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven” (Ephesians 1:22, 23, 2:22; Hebrews 12:23)

The Ministry

We believe a divinely called ministry has been provided by our Lord for two purposes: (a) evangelizing the world, and (b) edifying the body of Christ (Mark 16:15-20; Ephesians 4:11-13).

Divine Healing

We believe deliverance from sickness is provided for in the Atonement, and is the privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4, 5; Matthew 3:16, 17; James 5:14-16).

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 coming for the Lord. This is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52).

The Millennial Reign of Christ

We believe the second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and establish universal peace (Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27, 30; Revelation 1:7; 19:11-14; 20:1-6; Romans 11:26, 27; Isaiah 11:6-9; Micah 4:3, 4).

The Final Judgment

We believe there will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whoever is not found written in the Book of Life will be consigned to everlasting punishment, which is the second death (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation19:20; 10:11-15; 21:8)

The New Heavens and the New Earth

We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:22).
