The Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God; it is the ultimate source of truth and authority. (II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 1:20-21; Heb. 4:12
One of the divine mysteries that we receive by faith is that God is triune, three distinct persons, yet one God. (Matt. 28:18,19; Matt. 3:16,17)
Jesus, who is true God and true man, is the only way of salvation having made full and complete payment for all the sins of all people when He died on the cross at Calvary, and His resurrection is proof that the Father accepted this payment. (I John 4:2 & 15; John 3:16; I John 1:7)
The Holy Spirit initially brings believers to faith in Jesus, and keeps them in the faith day by day, and works constantly to produce spiritual maturity. Believers are to submit to the Holy Spirit and cooperate with Him as He develops spiritual fruit in each life. (I Cor. 12:3; I Cor. 6:11; Gal. 5:22-24).
It is both a privilege and a duty to share the good news of salvation through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ with all people because all are sinful by birth and by personal act. All will perish in the eternal lake of fire unless they receive Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Luke 24:46,47)
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are available today. Therefore, we believe these gifts include healing miracles, supernatural wisdom and knowledge, and God speaking through prophetic utterances and tongues. ZCA teaches that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all born-again believers as God’s gift of power to witness and to live a victorious Christian life. (Rom. 11:29; Num. 11:22; I Cor. 12:1-11; I Cor. 14; Mark 1:8; Matt. 3:11)
Parents have the God-given responsibility to bring their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (Eph. 6:4; Deut. 6:4-9; Prov. 22:6)
Prayer is a vital part of every Christian’s life. To praise God, seek His guidance, intercede for the needs of others, and offer personal petitions. God has bound Himself to answer the prayer offering - retaining for Himself the right to determine “how” and “when”. (I Thessalonians 5:16-22; James 1:5-8; James 5:13-18; I Tim. 2:1-4)
Those who are in right relationship with Jesus will be active and regular in attendance at a church or Christian fellowship. (Act 2:42,46,47; Acts 1:14)
God has not rejected Israel. Therefore, for the sake of God, we offer friendship and support to Jewish people throughout the world. (2 Chronicles 9:8; Psalms 98:3; Isaiah 44:21; Ezekiel 37:28; Romans 11:25; Jeremiah 31:2).
