Statement of Faith
*There is one God, eternally coexisting in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Father sent His only begotten Son to be the propitiation for our sins and through His Blood alone redemption is made available for lost mankind. (1John 2:2 and 4:10)
*The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is “profitable for teaching, reproof, correction and training in righteousness” (2Tim.3:16). It is timeless and relevant for all circumstances and is the fullness of God's divine inspired revelation to mankind. It is true and without error in its original form. Utilizing inspirational Bible verses are to our advantage for Christian living.
*It is in Gods will that the Son of God, Jesus the Christ came to earth in the flesh. The Word of God was made flesh, born of a virgin. (Mt 1:23) He lived on earth without sin and fulfilled all He was sent to accomplish. It was Gods will that He died on the cross for the sins of the world, and after three days He rose from the dead. Today He is alive and rules at the right hand of God the Father.
He will return to earth on the day appointed by the Father to call up all those who belong to Him who have been regenerated by the atoning work of the cross of Christ. Jesus Christ is fundamental to all genuine renewal, freedom and accomplishment. Apart from Him we can do nothing (John 15:5). He will establish His Kingdom on earth.
* In personal salvation. Those who believe in the redemptive power of the shed blood of Jesus the Christ the Lamb of God. Those who are redeemed by the Blood being made righteous and have there by receive Life Eternal. Eternal life is the promise to all who exclusively receive Jesus who is the only giver of life.
* In the resurrection of the dead. Some to eternal life and some to eternal death. The lost are those who refuse life and the result is death which is called the second death, death by the Eternal Fire. The lost are those who refuse to be redeemed by the Blood of Christ.
*The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He lives within the heart of the person who receives Christ as their Savior. He is the power of God. He leads us into all truth. He is the Spirit of truth, the Spirit of comfort and He is so much more, here are mentioned just a few...
The Holy Spirit opens up our understanding of the written Word. He teaches us how to pray. The Holy Spirit is the way God communicates with His people. The Holy Spirit is not just a “force” and although He is all powerful, He is also very gentle and kind and can be grieved just like any real person.
I believe... * In sanctification through the Word of God directed by the Holy Spirit, in personal holiness and purity of heart and life through the Holy Spirit and the overcoming victory in Christ Jesus.
* The Church is universally made up of all people who believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for their sins and rose from the dead by the power of God. And through faith become partakers of the divine nature. God has chosen us before we chose Him.
The determining factor of one's authentic faith relationship with God is not one's denomination, religious practice or performance in Christian disciplines but rather the presence of the indwelling Spirit of Christ. As it is written, “if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. (Rom.8:9)
I believe... * In divine healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in the Redemption. In water baptism, in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New Birth, in speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4), in the gifts of the Spirit, and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit.
All of these are available to all believers whosoever will.
* The primary call and mission of the Church is to go forth and proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God, freedom in Christ to all the world. To bring truth to those held captive by the grip of the kingdom of darkness, to preach good tidings to the poor; to heal the brokenhearted and to prepare the way for His second coming by making ready His bride.
(Isa 61:1 and Luke 4:18)
All people are born with a fallen nature. We all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. We are all in need of the saving Grace of God through the blood of the cross we are redeemed through faith and not of works.
Jesus exchanged His righteousness for our sins freely justifying all who would receive His gift of eternal life. We were made His righteousness and He was made sin for us.
God continues to work in the life of the believer renewing their mind, sanctifying them and maturing their spirit. Christian life is a growing process the Holy Spirit bringing us from glory to glory.
I believe ...
God is sovereign. He is able to do “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us (Eph. 4:13) The reason we may not experience this reality is not due to a lack of power but rather to our not appropriating the power that is available. When we seek to do anything in our own power, nothing divine happens. But when we rely on, lean on, trust in God, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
“The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” (Rom 8:2-5 NKJV)
It is Gods will that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (3 John 2-3 NKJ)
