A. The Scriptures
We believe the Bible is the infallible, perfect and dependable Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man’s problems. 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21
B. The Godhead
We believe in the True; One God, existing eternally in three persons: God Our Father, Son and Holy Spirit at work in everything we do. John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7
C. Man, Marriage, His Fall and Redemption
God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed, or orphaned and to heal the brokenhearted. Psalm 68:5,6; 1 John 4:16
Man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God.
Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5
We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation, Gods free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through grace; God’s unearned favor. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God.
Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24
Our stand is to build, raise and protect Godly families as displayed in the Word of God in Genesis 1-3 â€œMarriage is a solemn covenant of union between man and woman, only acceptable between male and female. Amazing Grace International Ministries condemn strongly and reject any other form of ungodly matrimonial union.
D. Water Baptism
We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17
E. Baptism of the Holy Spirit
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. He helps empower the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God’s will.
Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4
God gives all believers spiritual gifts. They are for the strengthening of God’s people (the church) and proof of God’s existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10
Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God’s character to be developed in us.
Romans 6:19; Galatians 5:22-25
G. Divine Healing
We believe that Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Healing includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration.
Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1
We also believe that God uses medical Doctors to minister restoration of one’s health through medicine and therefore advice prayer as patients use medicine administered by medical doctors.
H. Hell and Eternal Retribution
The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God’s desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth.
Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18
Jesus will return and take all those who have accepted Him as Savior to heaven for eternity.
Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28
