iValue: Four Core Beliefs
& 16 Fundamental Truths

The world fellowship that Kodiak Assembly belongs to, the Assemblies of God, believes in 16 Fundamental Truths, which include Four Core Beliefs. These are Salvation, Divine Healing, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, and the Second Coming. Click the links in this paragraph for in-depth teaching and discussion on these beliefs.

Salvation

The doctrine of Salvation forms the core of our Christian faith by proclaiming God’s victory over sin in our lives. This truth results in deliverances, healings and restored lives. Whether a new member or a mature Christian, every believer should have a clear understanding of salvation and the difference this truth makes in our lives.

For it is by grace through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.. – Ephesians 2:8 (NIV)

Divine Healing

Wherever Jesus went, He ministered with compassion and healed the sick. Christ’s example showed an interconnection with salvation as many believed following their healing.Our Lord continues to heal today and it is vital that the church preach, teach and practice this biblical truth. Scriptures command believers to pray in faith and trust God for the outcome.

But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed. -Isaiah 53:5 (NIV)

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The doctrine of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is our distinctive. This truth explains the passion and power of our witness. Jesus promised His followers they would receive power from on high so that they would be His witnesses. We believe this truth is just as relevant today as our Fellowship continues to take the gospel message around the globe.

I baptize you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit. – Mark 1:8 (NIV)

The Second Coming

With the world experiencing natural disasters, economic downturns and increasing uncertainties on many fronts, the doctrine of Christ’s Second Coming is more relevant than ever. Believers must rest in the certainty of the imminent return of our Lord and share this hope with others.

For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. – Matthew 24:27 (NIV)
