Statement of Faith

This ministry believes ...

In one God, eternally existent in three persons --- God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit.

 

That God created everything out of nothing for His own purpose.

 

That the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are inerrant and verbally inspired of God.

 

That there are no new covenant prophets as the Church has no further need for new revelations from God.          The scriptures are the complete revelation from God to the Body of Christ.

 

That Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both God and        man.

 

That man was created in the image of God in a state of innocence, but when he sinned, the human race                incurred both physical and spiritual death.

 

That Jesus Christ lived a sinless and perfect life that fully pleased His Father; that He died for our sins on the        cross, bearing the judgment required by God's justice against sin.

 

That Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead; and that He ascended to the right hand of the Father.

 

That those who believe in Jesus Christ are saved by grace through continual faith conjoined

with receptive submission to the plan of salvation as stipulated by God (repentance, confession, baptism by          water immersion). I reject the "Once Saved Always Saved" doctrine, as Christians are required to endure to          the end (Matthew 24:12-13; 1 John 5:13; Revelation 2:10).

 

That we should observe the Lord's Supper as means of testimony for the Church.

 

That Christians should be good stewards over their finances; and give discretely, cheerfully, and willingly              according to their means rather than by a man-made tithing system.

 

That men should lead in the home and church; and thus, women are restricted from occupying the pastoral

position.

 

That at death, the righteous pass instantly into Christ's presence; to remain there until the resurrection of the        Body of Christ's return for the Church. I also believe at death, the unrighteous pass instantly into Hell, where        they are to remain until they are brought before Christ during the final judgment and cast into the Lake of              Fire for eternity.

 

In the bodily resurrection of the righteous dead during Christ's return for the Church; when the souls and              spirits of those who have died will be united again with their bodies; now immortal. I also believe true                    Christians who are alive during that time, their bodies will likewise be transformed into immortality, and will            be caught up together with them to meet Jesus Christ.
