What We Believe

 

Only Machine Language Translation Used

 

  1. One God, of the Old and New Testament, Who is the Holy Spirit, and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God who offered his sinless life for the salvation of mankind and is the only sacrifice necessary and acceptable to God for man to receive His grace for eternal life and walk in newness of life in our day.
  3. The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given by God are complete—illuminating and complementing each other, inerrant—containing no contradictions or errors, and timeless—applicable and relevant in our day, as a package of revelation for man’s salvation, safety, and benefit.
  4. If man confesses Jesus as lord and believes that God raised him from the dead he receives the gift of holy spirit which is the incorruptible seed of Christ and is now born again as a son of God, called Christian, having eternal life salvation and the ability to exercise spiritual power and produce spiritual fruit. The new birth begins the potential of a new life in Christ but is ultimately the responsibility of each believer to prove to his or her own satisfaction the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God and live according to the Word of God.
  5. Justification through the faith of Jesus Christ is common to all Christians and is the legal decision by God to release man of guilt and sin and make man acceptable to Him. This truth is the basis upon which one’s past and the negative judgments of our day are left behind and an understanding of the household of faith and mutual respect for all Christian believers as brothers and sisters in the family of God is built.
  6. Each believer is seated at the right hand of God with Christ and therefore sanctified—set apart for God’s purpose from this world, to live the love of Christ and grow in the unifying power of the gift of holy spirit by functioning as an interdependent and necessary member of the Body of Christ.
  7. The anticipation of the soon-glorification of believers at Christ’s return—the gathering of the Church of the Body of Christ when new bodies and eternal rewards will be given, is the incentive in our day to free oneself from the limited view of earthly existence and the burdens and cares that accompany it, to live each day with hope, joy, and comfort of the eternal and glorious future that awaits the sons of God.
  8. The early Christians as recorded in the Book of Acts and later in the Church Epistles of the Apostle Paul and other New Testament writers set the pattern of organizing to network, teach, and share their beliefs regarding Jesus Christ.
  9. The Devil, Satan, is the spiritual accuser and adversary of man who, along with the other fallen angels, make up the devil spirit forces of evil who are actively and permanently opposed to God, Christ, and the Word, but will one day receive final judgment and destruction.
