Progress believes in using Biblical principles for modern-day practical application.

We believe:

  1. In the verbal inspiration of the Bible
  2. That there is one God eternally existing in three persons, namely: the Father, Son and Holy Ghost
  3. That Jesus Christ is the only Begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of God the Father as our Intercessor
  4. That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins
  5. That justification, regeneration and the new birth are wroth by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ
  6. In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ; through the Word and by the Holy Ghost
  7. Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people
  8. In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.
  9. In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost
  10. In water baptism by immersion and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost
  11. Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement
  12. In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saint's feet
  13. In the pre-millennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.
