What We Believe



The blood of Christ was precious because it was real, and he was presented as a lamb without blemish and without spot (sin):
He was foreordained before the foundation of the world but was manifest in these last times for you and me.
By him, we believe in God, that raised him up from the dead and gave him glory; that our faith and hope might be in God.

(1 Peter 1:19-21)

 

 

 

 

 

We Believe

The Holy Bible is a book consisting of the Scriptures of Moses, the prophets and the apostles (the Old and New Testaments). We believe that the original manuscripts were the dictates of “one directing Mind” (God), (2 Peter 1:21). These writers were the instruments of God’s hands, some whose names are unknown, ranging from a shepherd to a king in status. While they never met in a committee nor consulted one another about the words written, we believe that these writings are the inspired word of God and the authoritative rule of faith and conduct for all Christians (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 Corinthians 2:13; Hebrews. 1:1; 1 Corinthians 14:37; Nehemiah 9:30; John 10:35).

 

We DO NOT consider the various translations as the Word of God (just the original manuscripts), but that these translations from the original manuscripts have been born out of a need for the Word of God to be transmitted to men of different races and languages.

We DO NOT claim that these translations are without error; for the translations are the works of mortal men who have made no claims that their works are the products of the inspiration of God or the assistance of the Holy Spirit.

 

 

 

 

 

We Believe

“Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” (Proverbs 30:5-6)

 

We, therefore, accept the following as true:

We Believe There Is One God - (Deuteronomy 4:35, 4:39, 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6, 18, 22; Ephesians 4:6)

We Believe God Is A Spirit – (Numbers 23:19 (NLT), 23:19 (KJV); John 4:24; Luke 24:39)

We Believe There Is One God And One Mediator Between God And Men, The Man Christ Jesus - (1 Timothy 2:5; John 8:40; Acts 2:22; Hebrews 10:12)

We Believe Jesus Christ Is The Same Yesterday, Today and Forever - (Hebrews 13:8)

We Believe That God Was “In” Christ, NotIncarnated As” The Christ – (John 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:19) (See: God Was In Christ)(See: God Was Manifest)

We Believe That The Doctrine Of Christ Was That Of God – (John 3:34, 7:16, 8:28-30, 12:49-50, 14:10, 15:10; Romans 1:2-6; Hebrews 1:1-5)

We Believe Jesus Christ Died On The Cross For Our Sins – (1 Corinthians 15:2-3)

We Believe Jesus Was Resurrected By God – (2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Galatians 2:20) 

We Believe Jesus is in Heaven “with” God – ( Heb 4:14, 9:24, 10:12; Acts 17:30-31, (See also: Acts 7:55-56; Romans 8:34; Ephesians 1:20; Col 3:1; Heb 1:3, 8:1, 12:2; 1Peter 3:22)

We Believe Our Fellowship is With God (The Father) & Jesus (His Son) - (1John 1:3; John 14:23)

 

We Believe The Name Of God came from God when he said ("that is my name") in  Isaiah 42:8 (KJV), and ("by my name") in Exodus 6:2-3 (KJV), when God revealed his name to Moses: “I am the LORD H3068 ; and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty (“el shaday”), but by my name JEHOVAH H3068  was I not known to them.”

 

Note: Both LORD and JEHOVAH translate precisely into the same Hebrew word: YHWH.

Although originally represented by the Hebrew tetragrammaton (“four letters”) יהוה (Yod Heh Vav Heh), transliterated into Roman script Y H W H; yehôvâh, yeh-ho-vaw’, it is referenced 6510 times in the KJV as “LORD” H3068 , (the actual translated pronunciation varies between being “Yahweh” or “Jehovah”; either-way is sufficient for identifying scriptures that contain the name of God ) – [Isaiah 42:8 (KJV), Isaiah 42:8 (HCSB), Isaiah 42:8 (YLT)] [Exodus 3:15 (KJV), Exodus 3:15 (HCSB), Exodus 3:15 (YLT)] [Isaiah 45:5 (KJV), Isaiah 45:5 (HCSB), Isaiah 45:5 (YLT)]

 

We Believe The Name Of God Continues To Be, And Will Remain, The Same For All Generations Past and Yet To Come - [Exodus 3:15 (KJV), Exodus 3:15 (HCSB), Exodus 3:15 (YLT)]

 

 

 

 

 

We Believe In Water Baptism;

By Submersion In The Name Of Jesus  G2424 - ( Matthew 3:16, Acts 2:38, Acts 8:12, 8:16, 8:38, 10:48, 19:4, 19:5; Ro 6:3; 1Co 1:13-17 (Ref. Understanding The Phrase “In the Name of..” & In The Name of “Jesus” )

We Believe In The “New Birth” or Baptism Of The Holy Spirit – (the Receiving of the Holy Spirit) - ( Matthew 3:11; Acts 5:52, 8:17, John 3:5-8)

We Believe The Change Which Takes Place In The Heart At Conversion Is A Very Real One – ( 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Galatians 2:20)

We Believe Our Bodies Are Designed To Be Inhabited By God, Or That Of God’s Spirit – (Ephesians 2:22; 1 Corinthians 6:19) determined by our obedience to him (Acts 5:32)

We Believe That By Receiving The Holy Ghost, Man Receives Power From God - (John 14:12-13; Acts 1:8, 10:38; Romans 15:13; 2 Timothy 1:7)

We Believe In The Various Gifts Of The Holy Spirit - (1 Corinthians 12:6-11)

We Believe Jesus Christ will come back to earth in person. James taught it; the Apostles preached it; the saints expect it; – (Acts 1:11; 3:19-21; 1 Cor 1:7, 8; 11:26; Phil 3:20,21)

We Believe In A Final Judgment Day Were Each Individual Is Held Accountable – (Acts 17:30-31; Romans 2:5-6, 14:12; 1 Cor 15:24-28 (NLT), 15:24-28; 1Peter 1:17; Rev 20:12-13)

 

 

 

 

 

We Are Saved By Grace;

(Part 1.) God's Grace: is what made "salvation" available, through Christ – (John 1:17-18; Romans 3:24-25, 5:1-2, 15-17; Ephesians 4:7; 2 Thessalonians 1:12; Titus 2:11)

(Part 2.) Obedience: is what makes "salvation" a reality, for Obeying God (Through Christ) – (Acts 5:32; John 8:51, 12:49-50, 14:6, 14:10, 14:23-24, 15:10; Hebrews 5:9) 

Faith (In God’s Grace) without Works (Not Living “Holy”) is Dead (No Salvation) - (James 2:26; Galatians 6:7; Eph 1:4; Eph 2:10; Heb 12:14; 1Peter 1:15-16 )
