We exist to change the lives of believers through equipping them to live out who they are in Christ by edifying the body of the Christ (the Church) while coming to a oneness of faith through a full experiential knowledge of the Son of God unto a mature person according to the stature of the fullness of Christ so that we are no longer tossed around by every wind of teaching by the trickery of men who cunningly seek to deceive the saints.
For I delivered unto you at first that which also I received, that Christ died on behalf of our sins according to the Scriptures and that He was buried and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures - 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (The Apostle Paul)
As He has given to us all things from His Divine inherent ability, the things facing life and godliness through the full experiential knowledge of the One calling us through a proper opinion and virtue, through Whom the precious and great promises were given to us in order that through these we should become partakers of a quality of the Divine nature, having escaped the corruption by desires in the world – 2 Peter 1:3-4 (The Apostle Peter)
Jesus said to him, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me – John 14:6 (Jesus Christ [God Himself])
God is the Сreator and Sustainer of all things, seen and unseen. He is self-existing, one, and immense. He is eternal and unchangeable in His Nature. His essence is Spirit and His attributes are omnipotent, omniscient, holy (set apart), righteous, goodness, love, and truth . God exists in a trinity of three distinct inseparable Persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit . All three Persons share the same essence and attributes. In the Godhead, all three Persons are equal.
The Christian is placed into the body of Christ by the Holy Spirit when he or she believes the Gospel for salvation. The Christ is a new kind of creation by God that is made up of both Jew and Gentile, in which Christ is the Head and the Church is the Body. There are no physical or racial distinctions in the Christ. In Christ, the Christian is complete, lacking nothing.
The original manuscripts of Scripture are God breathed; The Holy Spirit bore along and enabled men to write the Scriptures. Every word, thought, and concept in the original text of Scripture is verbally and plenarily inspired. The books that were written through men by the bearing along of the Holy Spirit are the 66 books comprising of the Old and New Testament as found in the KJV, which books constitute the entire written revelation from God.
By grace, through faith in Christ’s death for our sins, burial, and resurrection three days later, according to the Scriptures, salvation is given to humans today. Grace is God’s attitude whereby He gives a benefit without consideration of merit. Faith is taking God at His Word. Therefore, salvation is offered today by believing in Christ through the facts of the gospel for salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Only this gospel has the inherent ability to save (Romans 1:16).
Sin is lawlessness. When someone knowingly ignores the standards that God has set for them to live by, they are sinning.
The Church is made up of those who are in the body of Christ. It began on the Day of Pentecost and is only comprised of those who are of the Dispensation of Grace. Christ is the Head, and the saints are the Body. Through the Church, God shows to the principalities and powers (angels) His manifold wisdom.
The first human, Adam, was created by God, Who formed his body from the dust of the earth and breathed the breath of lives into him, giving Adam a soul and spirit. When Adam was created, he was created in the likeness and the image of God and was created in a fully mature state without process. Only Adam was created. After showing Adam that no other being on earth is like him, and therefore not suitable for a helpmeet, God built Eve from his side. All other humans exist through procreation.
Satan is a Cherub, whose name is Lucifer. Satan is at this time the god of this age because he is the originator and keeper of the world system. He is an adversary of Christians. He still has access to the third heaven were he goes before God and accuses the brethren. He, along with the angels that fell with him, currently govern the world we live in.
All other angels, the ones who did not fall, are presently serving as minister to the heirs of salvation. They are the messengers of God and carry out the judgments of God. They protect God’s People.
Seraphim and Cherubs, who are a higher created being than angels, serve in the throne room of God in the third heaven.
The Rapture is the next event in the prophetic calendar. This is the snatching away of the church. At the end of the Dispensation of Grace, the Church will be snatched away by Christ and presented before the Father. At this time all believer who are a part of the Body of Christ will be resurrected and receive their full redemption (Spirit, soul and body). The believers that have not physically died at this time will pass over death and receive their resurrected body and the redemption of their soul with the believers that are resurrected from the dead. This event may happen at any moment. The Scriptures do not elaborate on the exact time when this will happen, except for stating that it will be prior to the tribulation.
Dispensations are periods within time in which God reveals something to us about the human nature. A dispensation is an administration that requires a steward and those in the household. Scripture reveals that there are only seven dispensations, culminating in the dispensation of the fullness of times (the millennial kingdom). Each dispensation is unique and those of the household are held to the standards of the administration. No two households are alike or have the same standards and therefore the rules are different.
