I believe the following as stated in God’s Word, the Bible:
The Word of God
True Christianity is based on the Bible alone. We believe that the Bible is God’s “word” communication to us; written by men, but directed and inspired by God through the Holy Spirit. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant and is the complete, final, and only authority in all matters of faith and conduct. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths (not traditions or other writings). (2 Timothy 3:16,17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; and 2 Peter 1:20,21).
That God is eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son Jesus; and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11).
God the Father - that God the Father is perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power. God showed His love for all people by sending His Son to die for our sins so that we might have eternal life with God in heaven. (Luke 18:27; John 3:16,17; Romans 11:33; 1 Peter 1:16; 1 John 4:7-10; Revelation 4:8).
God the Son - Jesus Christ as God the Son the second person of the Trinity, that Jesus is the Only begotten Son of the Father. His first coming as a man is the fulfilment of the Old Testament prophecies.. On earth, Jesus was both 100% God and 100% man. Filled with The Holy Spirit beyond limit, He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, took the punishment for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. (John 1:1,14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5, Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35; Proverbs 30:4; Psalm 2:7).
Jesus is the Only Way - that Jesus is the only way not Mary, nor saints, nor angels, nor persons living or dead, no priest nor minister, no one else, nothing else;, to bridge the gap of sin between God and people, thus He is the only way to have a relationship with God now, and eternal life with God in heaven. That all Bible-believing Christians must reject the erroneous and false teaching of the Catholic Church, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and so on. (John 1:1,14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5, Matthew 16:16,17 and 25:31-46; Mark 14:61,62; Luke 1:34,35 and 2:7; John 1:1 and 1:14 and 5:22-30 and 10:30 and 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 2:22-24).
Resurrection – Jesus Christ as physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life, and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation. (Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21).
Lordship of Jesus Christ - that He is the Head of the Church, the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through His Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfilment of Jesus' Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. The one holy universal church is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong. ( Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23).
The Rapture - that at the rapture the Church, His body of believers will be caught up to be united with Christ as His "Bride" (2 Cor 11:2) before the 70th week of Daniel begins, never to be separated from Him. (1Corinthians 12:12-13; Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 3:1-6;4:11; 5:23; Colossians 1:18; Acts 15:13-18; Matthew 24:1-44; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; I Corinthians 15:20-24; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; I Thessalonians 5:1-3; II Thessalonians 2:1-4; Titus 2:11-13; Ephesians 2:10, Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; II Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7).
God the Holy Spirit - that the Holy Spirit convicts the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment. He is received in full when someone gets right with God through Jesus, so all true Christians “have the Holy Spirit.” He is the power that Christians have that enables them to live a Christ-like life as God leads them;. The Holy Spirit is our pledge or “down-payment”; of eternal life. (John 16:8-11; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:9; Galatians 5:16-26; 1 John 3:24).
Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit - that Christians desire the Holy Spirit being manifested in daily life through a variety of fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit and to build and to sanctify the church, to demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, to be able to conform to God's plan, and confirm the power of the Gospel of Christ Jesus. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters. (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-8; Ephesians 4:16; I Timothy 4:14; II Timothy 1:6-7; I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10; Matthew 7:13-23; Acts 2:38-39; Romans 12:4-8; I Corinthians 12:1-12; I Corinthians 13:1-3; Galatians 5:22-26).
That man was created by God and in His image that because of the disobedience of Adam and Eve at the Garden of Eden they lost their innocence and both they and their descendants, separated from God, suffer physical and spiritual death and that all human beings are sinners by nature and practice.. That God created the heavens and the earth, including all life, in six days (Gen 1:1; John 1:3; Col 1:16-17).
Marriage is God-ordained. The only legitimate marriage sanctioned by God is the joining of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as defined in Scripture. That the "Creator made them male and female", and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’" (Matthew 19:4,5).
Salvation is to be saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ by His death, burial, and resurrection, as salvation is a gift from God, not a result of any of your good works or of any other human efforts, but so that you then "do work preordained that you should do" . (Ephesians 2:8-10; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22; Matthew 16:21-26; John 3:16-19; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:4-9; I John 5:9-12).
Water Baptism - water baptism is for believers. Then the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Before we are baptized, we must come to believe that we are sinners in need of salvation. We must also believe that Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins, that He was buried, and that He was resurrected to assure our place in heaven. Water baptism by immersion is the biblical method of baptism because of its symbolic representation of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. (Romans 3:23; 1 Corinthians 15:1–4; Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48).
Repentance – the necessity of repentance is to make your own commitment to change your mind, being willing to turn around, in all areas of life, to follow Christ, which allows anyone, who will repent, to receive His redemption, and be regenerated by receiving His Holy Spirit. Thus, through true repentance we receive forgiveness of sin and appropriate salvation : Acts 2:21, 3:19; I John 1:9;.
Justification - those who believe in Christ are pardoned all their sins and accepted in God’s sight only because of the righteousness of Christ credited to them; this justification is God’s act of undeserved mercy, received solely by trust in him and not by their own efforts.
Sanctification - that sanctification being one of Christ's saints; is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in you. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life in Christ Jesus. (I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, II Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).
Redemption - accept and know that the sinless blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was in payment, for redemption, for all time -- for all who receive Him -- able to end all use of blood sacrifice, as it is 100% sufficient to cleanse all mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both your sinfulness and your sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of unforgiven sin, which is death. His "one sacrifice for sin forever" has replaced all the sacrifices of the Old Covenant, and is now the only ground of Redemption. (Hebrews 9:12, I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29; Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).
Regeneration - knowing God by being regenerated by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (John 6:44, 65; Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5).
Indwelling of Jesus Christ – Christians who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them or 'dwell' within them by His Holy Spirit so that each believer will: relinquish the sovereign authority of one’s life over to Him in truth thus making Jesus the Lord King and Leader; of one’s life as well as Saviour. Each believer puts ones trust in what Jesus accomplished for each of them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead (John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelation 3:20).
Pentecost - that Christians receive and accept the promise of Pentecost; it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to abide with each and all believers, forever, to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth. (Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5,2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6).
The Lord's Supper - Partake as a believer in a unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ; are taken in remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross. (Matthew 26:26-29; I Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25).
That Israel exists as a covenant people through whom God continues to accomplish His purposes and that the Church is an elect people in accordance with the New Covenant, comprising both Jews and Gentiles who acknowledge Jesus as Messiah and Redeemer. The restoration of the Jewish people to the land of Israel is a fulfilment of the prophetic Scriptures of the Old Testament, and that the restored nation of Israel has a predominant role to play in the final purposes of God among the nations. While the Church, the Body of Christ, are partakers of the blessings of the root (John 15:1-6). They do not replace Israel. I believe that “Covenant Theology” is in error, the Church has not replaced Israel, nor is it itself “spiritual Israel”. God’s covenant with the Nation of Israel through Abraham is eternal and unconditional (Romans 11; Isaiah 11:11-16; 2:1-4).
The End and the Future
The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person, to judge everyone, to execute God’s just condemnation on those who have not repented and to receive the redeemed to eternal glory. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures. This will occur at a time when the enemies of the Lord have gathered at Armageddon and are descending upon the city of Jerusalem. The Lord Jesus will then descend with a mighty army to rescue the chosen remnant Israel and to establish His millennial kingdom from where He will reign over the whole earth for 1,000 years. At the end of this millennial era, all mankind who have ever lived will stand before God our Father and those who have denied His Son will be cast into outer darkness, but the sons and daughters, who have been “born again” in the spirit, will join Him in His eternal kingdom. (Matthew 25:41; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8).
