( RAISING GENERATION GENERALS IN FAITH.) 1 John 5:4. 1 Corinthians 15:57. OUR BELIEFS….. OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH. In this commission, we believe the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God,divine manual for the practice of faith, and also for the purpose of building and maintaining unity in the body. This commission also adopts fundamental doctrines, namely: 1. The Scriptures Inspired. We believe in One God, the creator of all things,revealed as triune, God the Father,God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. 2…We believe that the believe in its entirety is the word of God,a revelation from God to man,an infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to human conscience and reasoning, but not contrary to reason( Heb.4:12; 2 Peter 1:-21;2 Timothy 3:15-17). 3…We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,was crucified,died,was buried,was resurrected,ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father. 4..We believe in personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. We believe that justification is by grace through faith in our Lord’s sacrifice on Calvary,and that no one is justified by simply keeping the law. 5… We believe after,eternal life begins either in heaven or hell. Where you spend eternity is based on your decision to make JESUS Christ your Lord and Savior. 6.. We believe in the Christian’s hope of the soon-coming, personal personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ. 7… We believe in sanctification through the word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness,purity of heart and life. 8..We believe in water baptism, in the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking with tongues as the Spirit of GD gives utterance, in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the evidence of the fruit of the spirit. We believe that all of these are available to all believers. 9… We believe in divine healing, through faith in the name of Jesus Christ,and that salvation in all its ramifications is included in the Redemption. 10… We believe in the authority of the believer, through the name of Jesus Christ, to exercise dominion authority on earth. 11… We believe that true religion is to help and care for those in desperate need. 12… We believe that it is God’s will for believers to prosper in spirit, soul and in all things. . .
