What We Believe
DOCTRINAL STATEMENT OF BELIEFS
The following are the beliefs of this ministry
The Holy Bible
The Holy Bible is the Written Word of God. 2 Timothy 3:16,"All scripture is given by inspiration of God,...".All Scriptures, in the original manuscript, contained in the Holy Bible was inspired by God without error. God breathe on chosen men which caused them to write His Word. All Doctrines and Instructions ,etc. for the Christian Life comes from the Holy Scriptures and it's literal interpretation.
The Holy Scriptures teach that there is one God, who exist in three persons- The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit (Ghost).Together They created the heaven, the earth, and made man (Genesis1:1-2,26 ;St. John 1:1-3 ;St. Matthew 28:19; Romans 1:20 ;1 Timothy 2:5 ;1 John 5:7).
The Holy Scriptures teach that "..all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;“ Romans 3:23.Mankind is born into sin because Adam disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3;Romans 5:12).
The Holy Scriptures teach that there is a literal hell. Hell means death ,a place where one is tormented in flames forever (St. Luke 16:19-31). Where sinners go when they die. A place prepared for devil and his angels(St. Matthew 25:41).
The Holy Scriptures teach that there is a literal heaven. Heaven is the place where God abides (Psalm 103:19;Acts 7:55).A place where Christians have Eternal Life with God(St. John 10:28;14:1-3).
The Deity and Incarnation of Jesus Christ
The Holy Scriptures teach that God The Son, The Second Person of The Trinity became a Man. God The Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, caused the virgin Mary to become pregnant by placing God The Son in her womb. God The Son was named Jesus Christ (St. Matthew 1:16-25). The Son of God is not only 100% God, but He is also 100% man (St. John 1:1-18;Philippians 2:5-11).
The Redemptive Work of Jesus Christ, His Resurrection and Ascension
The Holy Scriptures teach that God The Son, Jesus Christ, paid the penalty of sin which is death, when He died on the cross and shed His Own Blood for the sins of the whole world (St. John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Hebrews 9:22).Since He was God, He was sinless which made Him qualified to redeem mankind. God The Father, The First Person in the Trinity ,raised Jesus Christ bodily from the dead to show the world that He accepted the sacrificial death of His Son Jesus Christ as payment in full for the penalty of sin (1Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 6:4). Forty days after Jesus Christ rose from the grave bodily, He went back to Heaven bodily, to sit on the Right Hand of God The Father to make intercessions for the saved (Acts 1:1-11;Hebrews 7:25,10:12,).
Salvation and Eternal Security
The Holy Scriptures teach that anyone who receives the sacrificial death of Christ as payment in full for their sins will be saved from death, not to go to hell when they die. Therefore, Salvation is by Grace through Faith in the Finished Redemptive Work of Christ alone. It is a Free Gift of God and no one can work for it or acquire it from their own abilities(Romans 6:23;Ephesians 2:8-9).One receives this Free Gift of Eternal Life, through a confession of faith in the Deity of Christ and His sacrificial death. A belief in the heart that He died for their sins and God raised Him from the dead(Romans 10:9-10).This confession and belief in the heart is done through prayer to God alone. Since Christ paid for sins in full, those that have received His Free Gift will never lose their salvation (Hebrews 10:10-14;Ephesians 1:13).
The Holy Scriptures teach that 10 days after Christ ascended back to Heaven, The Holy Spirit, The Third Person of The Trinity, came down from Heaven to dwell in every Believer in Christ. That day was called “The Day Of Pentecost”(Acts 1:8,Acts 2). On that day God The Holy Spirit, Baptized all Believers into The Body Of Jesus Christ and the Church began(1Corinthians 12:13) Each individual in the Church is a member of Christ’s body and He is the Head of the Church(Ephesians 5:22-32).Each member of the Body of Christ has their own Spiritual Gifts(1Corinthians 12:1-31).
The Second Coming of Christ
The Holy Scriptures teach that Jesus Christ, God The Son, will return to take The Church out of the world before the Great Tribulation. The Rapture is expected to happen anytime, Christ will descend from heaven to the air and raise the dead in Christ from the grave. Those in Christ who are alive shall be caught up together(with those that were resurrected) to meet Christ in the air. From that point on , the Church will forever be with God(1Thessalonians 4:16-17;2Thessalonians 2:7).Which concludes the first part of His second coming. After the 7 year tribulation period, Christ will return, but this time to the earth and reign for 1000 years. At the end of the millennium , the devil, hell and all sinners will be thrown into the lake of fire. Heaven and earth will be destroyed and God will make a New Heaven and Earth. (1Thessalonians 4 :16-17;St. Matthew 24:29-31;Revelation 19:11-16,20:10-15,21:3).
