STATEMENT OF FAITH

From Warriors 4 the Lamb Psalm 91:3

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried, He descended into hell, the third day He rose from the dead, He ascended into Heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From hence shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy universal church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

We at this ministry believe that there is one true God who has existed eternally as three distinct persons, ie God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. All three of the Godhead are all knowing, all seeing, all powerful, everywhere in the universe at once. These three share glory, majesty and honor.

God the Father, is an infinite personal spirit, full of holiness and glory, and is personally seeking fellowship in the daily lives of mankind. He seeks to give His undeserved love, mercy and grace to all mankind. He hears those who turn to Him in faith, and rewards them with eternal life through Jesus Christ, His Son.

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe in His teachings, His miracles and His life lived without sin. We believe that He willingly went to the cruel cross of Calvary as a substitute for sinful man, and that He rose again bodily from the dead on the third day. He appeared to many and ascended into Heaven where He is seated at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for the saints. We believe that while on earth He was both God and man, and that He will visibly return again.

We believe that when Christ went to the Father in Heaven, He sent His Holy Spirit to convict man of sin, and to sanctify and empower the saints to be holy as He is holy. He is called the Comforter, the Teacher, the Helper, the Guide, baptizing the believer at conversion and that there is not necessarily any outward manifestation of His work at conversion. There should be however, in a genuine conversion, a greater desire to know God and grow in Godly wisdom and knowledge, causing the destruction of sin, the flesh, and any of the devil's ground.

We believe in the Holy Spirit who seals the believer until the day of redemption. He is a true person, being able to lead, guide and direct and exercise all His Biblical gifts as He wills, producing abundant fruit of the same Spirit.

We believe that all the Scriptures of the Old and the New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original text. We believe that they are infallible, and irrefutable. We believe that all mankind are born with the inherited sin of Adam. There is none righteous, no not one. We believe that through the Lord Jesus Christ all can come to the Father by repentance and by accepting that Jesus Christ died for their sins. Salvation is a free gift of God, and the forgiven sinner is immediately a child of God, and his/her name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

We also believe that a believer can be by his own desire, through sins of the flesh, lust of the eyes, pride of life turn away from God and because of his/her carnality and lukewarmness, reject the Spirit of God. They can of their own freewill choose either to stay on the path of destruction, or return to Christ with a broken and contrite heart, and renew fellowship with Almighty God so that their names will not be blotted out of the Lamb's Book of Life.

We believe that there are many false signs and wonders (Matthew 24:24) being performed by false prophets, and that these teachings are deceiving believers who have itching ears and will not listen to the truth. These false prophets teach that all supernatural manifestations are from God and therefore the deceived believers are being caught and snared by the devil. We believe also that all manifestations of speaking in tongues should pass the scriptural test according to 1 John 4:1-4, as commanded by Almighty God. We do not limit the Holy Spirit exercising His gifts, but believe that nowhere in scripture are we taught to seek this gift or have it thrust upon the believer or have the believer coached to begin speaking in tongues.

We do not believe that Almighty God can be ordered, or commanded to heal, work miracles, or to give prophecy. We do not believe in positive faith confessions, or faith beliefs that coerce God's sovereignty.

We do not believe that a true born again believer can be possessed by the devil or his evil workers, but we do believe that consistent sin in uncrucified flesh can give place to the devil, and that he can invade the mind, the will, and the body.
