MINISTRIES PROMOTING REVIVAL

Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee"?           (Psalm 85:6)

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

  •    SCRIPTURE

         We believe that the Scriptures of both Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God, that they are the supreme and final authority for faith and practice, and are preserved in the Authorized KJV 1611 Bible.   ll Timothy 3:16; Psalm 12:6,7

  • GOD

         We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that God is supreme in his person, absolute in his attributes, glorious in his perfection, and eternal in his being.   1 John 5:7

  • JESUS

         We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, his conception by the Holy Spirit, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins, His bodily resurrection, His personal, imminent, pre-millennial, and pre-tribulational return.   Matt. 1:20; 11 Cor. 1:21; Eph. 1:7;  Luke 24:6,39; 1 Tim. 2:5

  • HOLY SPIRIT

         We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, one with the Father  and the Son, the  indweller of every believer to enlighten, guides, and enable him in life, testimony and service, and seal each believer until the day of redemption of the body.   John 15:26,27: John 14:7-11;  Eph. 1:13,14

  • MAN

         We believe that God created man in His image and likeness (a triune being: spirit, soul, and body) in a state of innocency, but through temptation, he willingly transgressed and became dead in trespassed and sin.  As a result, his posterity   (all men) inherited a corrupt nature, are born in sin, and are under condemnation.     Gen. 1:26; Psalm 51:5; Rom. 5:12

  • SALVATION

         We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; that He arose from the dead in his glorified body, ascended into heaven as our great High Priest and Advocate. He ever lives to make intercession for us: that all who believe on His name are justified on the grounds of His shed blood and receive the gift of eternal life by the grace of God. Nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner but his own voluntary rejection of the gospel.   Eph. 2:8,9; Heb. 7:24,25; isaiah 1:18; John 3:18

  • BLOOD

         We believe the blood shed by Jesus Christ on the cross to be the only and all-sufficient remedy for the sin of man; that this blood alone makes atonement for the soul.   Lev. 17:11; Heb. 9:22; col. 1:14

  • HELL

         We believe in a literal, burning hell that God prepared for the Devil and his angels. It is the place for everlasting, conscious punishment of the unbelieving lost.   Luke 16:22-26

  • HEAVEN

         We believe in a literal place called heaven where the saved shall enjoy everlasting  blessedness. Heaven is where God's immediate presence is manifested, where the angels reside, where the redeemed shall ultimately be, where Christ makes intercession for the saints, and from whence Christ will come to judge the "quick and the dead."   11 Cor. 5:8; John 14:1-3

  • SATAN

         We believe in the existence and operating power of a real and personal being opposed to all saints (saved unto all righteousness), and exalting himself against all that  God is, has, and tries to accomplish. We believe that the "Evil One" is called Satan, the Prince and Power of the Air, and is a powerful being but not all-power.    1 Peter 5:8,9;  James 4:7

  • THE CHURCH

         We believe that the local church is a congregation of baptized believers, instituted for the purpose of worship, service, and fellowship. The local church is as indigenous and autonomous body. We further believe in "The Church" as a living organism. It consist of all blood-bought, born-again believers throughout the Church Age. This body of the redeemed collectively makes up the ultimate bride of Christ.   Acts 2:42; Eph. 5:21-23 

  •  BAPTISM

         We believe that Baptism by immersion for a believer in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is the Bible mode of baptism that testifies to the believer's faith in, and identification with, the crucified,buried,risen,and soon coming Saviour.   Matt.3:16; 28:19; Rom.6:4

  • ORDINANCES

         We believe the two ordinances of the church are:

    1. The Lord's Supper whereby all believers show forth the Lord's death till he comes again.   1 Cor. 11:23-32

    Bible baptism  (see BAPTISM)

  • SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER

         We believe that those who by faith receive Jesus Christ as a personal Saviour are born again of the Holy Spirit, are the children of God, are heirs and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ, are kept by the power of God, and can know they are eternally saved, once forever!      Eph. 4:30;  John 10:27-30: Jude 24
