What Do We Believe? - Our Statement Of Faith

What Do We Believe Our Statement Of Faith 200x300 What Do We Believe?   Our Statement Of FaithAs you browse through this website, perhaps you are wondering what we believe. The truth is that we are Christians who are working hard to serve God and to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. We hold to the faith delivered to the apostles by our Lord Jesus Christ.  Unfortunately, today even most Christians do not know what the fundamental precepts of the Christian faith are.  That is one of the reasons why we started this website.  We hold to the basic truths that Bible-believing Christians have believed for centuries, and it is our desire to share that faith with the world.  The following is our statement of faith.....

We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God and declares His design and plan for mankind.

We believe that there is only one true God who is revealed in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

We believe in the Trinity - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, Jesus was both fully God and fully man.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah of Israel who became once and for all the perfect sacrifice for our sins as the Lamb of God.

We believe that Jesus died for all of mankind’s sin and that all that receive Him will have eternal life.

We believe that three days after Jesus died He was raised from the dead and now sits at the right hand side of the Father making intercession for all who have received him.

We believe that man was originally created good, but that he willingly fell to sin, thus ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

We believe that every person on earth can have restored fellowship with God through salvation (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior).

We believe that water baptism by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation is a symbol of our new life in Christ.

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and for effective service - just as it did in New Testament times.

We believe that speaking in tongues and other gifts of the Spirit are still to be practiced today just as they were in New Testament times.

We believe that God is a supernatural God that is still doing supernatural things today.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ gave His followers a commission to seek and save all who are lost in sin.

We believe that Jesus meant what He said in Matthew 5:17-19....

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven."

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will physically return to this earth one day.

We believe in the millennial reign of Christ during which Jesus will rule over earth for 1,000 years following His second coming.

We believe that a final judgment will take place for all those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and cast into the lake of fire.

We believe and look forward to a new heaven and a new earth that God will create.  We will live and dwell with Him there forever following the millennial reign of Jesus on Earth.

    I think I need to put up a statement of faith. I agree with yours completely. It helps to know this especially since end times studies tend to generate a good quantity of weirdness. thanks.

    Do you believe in the rapture of the Church? If so pre, mid or post-trib?

  • http://MiddleEastPeace Chuck Moon

    As a christian, I have serious problem to contend with:
    We know the God of the Bible to be a just God, a loving God, and a Righteous God.
    This I believe wholeheartedly.

    However, in what way do I reconcile the clear oppression brought upon people by Israel in the very name of God, and likewise, the steadfast support from the Christian Church in the USA for these acts of oppression?

    I understand the “it’s their land” argument. I am well versed in Bible history aside from what history I avidly devour in my spare time. I mean not to argue or challenge any “historical facts”.

    My problem is only this: where you have a captive people who are refusing to leave what they call “their land” being partitioned and dismantled, in Gaza literally starved to death, because at the same time it is “Israel’s land”, there is clearly a theological crisis.
    If God builds the house, it is built.
    If God doesn’t build the house, it doesn’t happen.
    In that view(simplistic as it is) I find it incomprehensible that the hand of God has lead His people to place where they are under threat(marginally) and are a threat to others, and are, in fact, forced to justify acts that any consciencious person would know to be wrong, thus they are forced to break the very laws they are taught to uphold.

    It seems to me to be a very contentious and unclear issue.
    Is my God a Just God, or is He not?

      I’m an agnostic Chuck, although I try to lead my life in accord with Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. I wholeheartedly endorse your view.

      If it wasn’t for mindless American support of Israel right or wrong, the current sad mess in the Middle East, the War on Terror, the disasters in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the tension between Islam and the West would be infinitely less poisonous than they are.

      I remember when the Six Day War. At that time i fully supported the Israelis in their brave effort to defend their rights. Since then, and only because of US proxy help, they’ve evolved from heroes into cruel oppressors.

    I have one issue with “Our Statement of Faith.”

    In the Gospel of John, 10:16, Jesus states the universality of the Gospel. He talks of other peoples unknown to the pharisees and His disciples. He will bring the Gospel to them all.
    He tells them there will be, “One Shepherd one flock.” We mortals don’t understand the possibility of salvation after death, because it is something alien to us. Life is just a brief stay on this earth. Our existence is infinite. Jesus will save all of mankind, in His own good time, not ours. When one accepts His freely offered Grace; it is surely not restricted to one’s time on earth. Jesus does not accept the possibility of man’s failure. He is the God of infinite second chances, and He loves us all unconditionally. I pray you will accept His time schedule. ybiC, Sam Powell

    Hi. I am a Christian and I really enjoy your site! Thank you. Have you read “The Believer’s Conditional Security” by Dan Corner? If not, read it!

  • Ryan “Fuzzy” Zeller

    i would just like to say i am a 19 year old and my mother is one of the most christian people i know, and as i grow into a man and i see how the world actually works and how people are greedy, and have their own agendas i realize that everything my mother taught me about the bible and what is going to happen before, during, and after the tribulation are all spot on.

    Most Christians now a days don’t know what to believe or do. God is going to come to earth three times. God is going to come back AS his people(jesus came died and ROSE AGAIN!!!), God is going to come back FOR his people( Rapture) and God is going to come back WITH his people(the battle of Armageddon)
    those are simple ways to rember whats going to happen

    i love your web site and i didnt even know it was christian until today… and im glad. i have been showing my friends and telling them about the end of times (to those willing to listen) and i use your website because it is just like it says; the MOST important news with out all the fluff.
    thank you for everything and i will be reading this website until the good Lord comes and takes me away. thank you .

  • Glen Bradley

    A welcome spring to you all..
    I reply with urgent concern & a doubt about the willingness to publish it. However try i must & shall.
    While there is no doubt this site & it’s masters are well meaning and i am sure decent moral folk, i do have some reservations about the subject matter.
    I consider myself a Christian & have a good relationship with God the father and all his aspects. We talk often and help eachother.
    Here is the rub ! My God made men equall & of free will. Free even in maters of faith & free to accept the Lord or not! If we had to accept God, we would not have free will. Further if we were punished for not doing so (burning in eternal fires etc)this would be nothing less than cruel & tortuerous, my God does not condone this nor does he wish anyone on earth to use this as a stick to beat people into any faith. My God will accept anyone into heaven regardless of faith, agnostic or otherwise if they have lived a kind & thoughtfull life and have not sort to hurt others. This is the word of my God !

    • Kristen

      Dear Glen, I am responding to your post from April 8th 2011. While our God is a just, loving, and forgiving God, He also “hates sin” . The Old Testament is filled with His response to sin and sinners. And while He sent His son Jesus to die for us and save us from our sin so we may all live free, God still hates sin. During Jesus’ ministry on earth he made numerous references through parables, of the fate of separation of believers from non-believers. The burning of a field of crops and weeds, the separating of chaff from wheat, the locking of doors to a house, etc. I would lovingly encourage you to go back through the New Testament again, in the gnostic gospels (matthew,mark,luke,john) and make note of how often Jesus references parables of separation. As far as accepting our Father’s Grace, I will compare it to a birthday present. God’s Grace is like a present, it can be bought, wrapped, and taken to the party, but at some point, the reciever MUST ACCEPT THE GIFT AND UNWRAP IT. If I’m holding a gift to you with arms outstretched, you must EXTEND YOUR ARMS AND ACCEPT THE GIFT. Otherwise the present just sits on a table and you never know what’s inside. I would hate for anyone to miss this wonderful present by 14 inches- the amount of space from your head to your heart. Thank you so much have a great day! In Christ’s love.

    Chuck, Our God is a Just God, no doubt. The Jews & the Palastinians do possess free will and therfore choose to fight over that baron dusty waste land, Frankly they can keep, but that is beside the point & not realy helpfull.Just because the Jews Kill & steal land in the name of the Lord does NOT mean it is true. Just saying it is in the name of the almighty does not make it so. You would think that if any nation should understand the futility of cruilty & any notion of racial supremecy they should. As for arguing about who’s land it is. That is rather like 2 flea’s arguing about who owns the dog!! It’s time they grew up and relized that when the Sun goes out it’s all over for all of us no matter what you believe or where you live!!

    I would like someone to answer chuck moon as I agree with what he says

  • Paul

    the jews do not worship the God that we do. they do not believe that jesus is God and therefore they don’t have the same God as us- their religion is one of paganism.

    Your ability to see what others are kept from seeing is a spiritual gift of discernment.

    The question Moon raises is a difficult on for a Christian to steer. Might I suggest Zion is of God and Zionism is much newer and is of Rothschild.

    I would like to send you some diagrams showing exactly where the bailouts and stimuli are going and how they failed to get anywhere near where they might have done the domestic household and production sectors any good.

    Fear is an emotional response to a perceived threat. This could be anything that will disturb our “comfort zone” and force us to trust God with the outcome. Fear is in direct opposition to the Christian’s faith walk. Fear is a tool of the Enemy that He uses to confuse the heart of mankind. The main purpose is to steer our ideas, perceptions, emotions and will away from the promises of God and toward our own worldly knowledge. Fear undermines our confidence and trust in the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.

  • Two Feet

    With one foot in the earthly world and one in the spiritual realm, I see two things many are not aware of yet … 1. the Kingdom of God is within each of us, and we can connect with this presence via contemplative or meditative prayer, practiced consistently and in solitude, without distraction … 2. our consciousness survives and lives on when the physical body ceases to function. We are information and energy, when all is said and done, built for eternal life. One other thing that escapes our awareness, on the whole, is that an economic system primarily driven by profit maximization and “supply and demand” can no longer support or lead to full employment, due to automation, technology and job exportation. We will need to construct a New Work Paradigm that takes into consideration our spiritual aspects. This change can come about quickly with much upset, including violence, or in a more orderly way, which is distinctly possible as people increasingly become of aware of the first two things noted above. This is being written without judgment. Having one foot in the earthly world and one in the spiritual realm does not confirm any superiority or higher value compared with anybody else. Understanding this renders one energetically humble and humbly energetic.

  • John Mitchell

    Excellent website and some very thoughtful commentary for many, especially non-christians to read and digest. Yet, in my experience and due to the many email lists I send to, even many ‘christians’ are foolishly following the pied-piper corrupt leaders, believing much of their continued lying…… Very sad to witness. Matthew 24

    Keep the faith and watch your back with discernment.

    In Christ,

    good site a lot of good info

    As a student of Scripture I had to do a lot of digging to move away from many false doctrines imbedded in Christianity namely the lying pen of the scribes and traditions rather than truth I wrote a book Christianity Unmasqued Web site noted above and I would be glad to send you a copy if you are interested currently writing a book about stopping foreclosures which is based on Isaiah 52:3

    also here is another book you may wish to review it does a great job at identifying the doctrine when it came to be accepted and the
    history behind it

  • Eric

    According to Christianity, Jesus stated “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” If you are a Muslim, Jew etc., you do not believe Jesus is the Son of God. Does that mean these people, regardless of the goodness of the lives they lead, will never be with God?

    • Paul Fernandez

      Eric,Greetings,I would like to share what i know with you.
      The bible says that God loves us as much as he loves Jesus Christ.Us means all who ever lived-Christians or other wise.But it looks like the vast majority who ever lived has not yet heard of the true gospel.Millions more even now at this point of writing are going to perishing without hearing the name Jesus Christ,as millions have done in the past! what is their fate?This issue has perplex me for some time.Here and there the bible the bible gives hints of all those who ever lived who had no chance to hear the gospel
      I would like to quote you these 2 verse

      a. Matt 11:21-22….for if the miracles i did…had been done in wicked Tyre and Sidon….i tell you ,Tyre and Sidon will be better off on judgement day

      b.Matt 11:24 I tell you, even Sodom will be better off on judgement day..

      The people of sodom were the dreg of society.Compared to them Hamas looks like a couple of choir boys.Yet Christ is saying,that on judgement day there will find mercy.What more for the rest of the unevangelised humanity.

      Actually this raise another important question.Is this the only day of salvation? If so then project Adam is a dismal failure.Why?

      -People’s destiny is determined by the success or failure of human beings-evangelist.

      -God send people to hell based on our incompetence,because He is inept in actually saving people

      I know by saying this i am open to challenge,but i comfortable with this view

    • Alex K

      If they reject Christ died on the cross yes as a substitute for mans sin the yes Eric, I believe that is correct. It is not up to you or me or any other person to judge goodness. Certainly not by God’s definition. We have laws here on earth that we all live by, No ? If we don’t obey them we are judged and sentenced. Why would the creator of the Universe not also have unchangeable laws. Even more so, there must be some things in Heaven as on earth that cannot be changed. Furthermore, we don’t know how many millions of muslims, buddhists, hindu’s, atheists etc will come to find the truth of the only holy book with thousands of prophecies fulfilled and accept the Jesus Christ was truly the Son of God..On eof the end time prophecies is that the Gosbel will be preached to ALL corners of the Earth. In the end many who were first will be last and many who were last will be first..

  • http://www.graspinggod.com Brad Johnson

    In response to Chuck Moon.

    What you said of God is true: He is just, loving, and righteous (and, many, many, many other good things!).

    But, please, never ever confuse what a country or man does or says, with what and who God is. Israel, Catholicism, Liberal Protestants, etc., are all a mess. Never judge God by mankind. That’s scary. Learn about God from his word. I’d like to invite you to my Bible study lessons: http://www.graspinggod.com

    Sam Powell says: “… He is the God of infinite second chances, …”

    If that were the case literally, I would think that Adam and Eve would have recanted their act of disobedience.

    I think it better said that our Father is a God of a better way.
