WE BELIEVE in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, a divine and Holy Trinity.
WE BELIEVE God is the Creator of all things, the One True and Living God, Three in One.
COLOSSIANS 1:16 “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.”
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Promised Messiah, our Redeemer and Risen Savior.
WE BELIEVE that God loved us so much that He sent His Son in human form to bear the punishment for all of mankind’s sins on the cross. He gave His life for us that we might live.
JOHN 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”
WE BELIEVE that the way to eternal life and residence in heaven is by BELIEVING, ACCEPTING and LIVING FOR Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
JOHN 14:6 “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit is the divine gift promised to us by God and foretold by the Risen Christ before His ascension into heaven.
ACTS 1:4 “On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.”
The Holy Spirit is our Helper, our Guide, our Comforter, our Counselor
The Holy Spirit is Truth and the Revealer of Truth
The Holy Spirit is the Interpreter of God’s Holy Word
The Holy Spirit Reveals all things
The Holy Spirit is the Giver of Gifts
The Holy Spirit is the Producer of Fruit in our lives
The Holy Spirit is the Power of the Living God here on earth
The Holy Spirit will guide us home.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus is coming back for His Church and we must be ready.
When is He returning? Only the Father knows, but “we” must be ready.
Matthew 24:36,40,42 “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father… Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with the hand mill; one will be taken and the other left… Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”
This applies to ALL peoples…those who have preceded us in death and those who are alive.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 “But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve, as do the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, and remain until the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord.”
What can we do to be ready?
Believers must accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
It is not enough to BELIEVE. We must ACCEPT and LIVE FOR Jesus Christ.
ACTS 2:41-47 “Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.”
Fellowship with Believers is Key
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
Jesus wants us to live an ABUNDANT LIFE!
You too can experience the ABUNDANT blessings here on earth promised in the following verse.
You do have an adversary and he works against you in every way possible.
You need the power of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit to overcome and be victorious.
JOHN 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
WE BELIEVE that YOU CAN live ABUNDANTLY and that YOU WILL in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ!
