Ministry Of The Church Under The Big Top


STATEMENT OF FAITH

The Holy Scriptures know as the Bible are the inspired word of God and are the all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. We are encouraged to sound doctrine, Creeds, however, are not the primary basis of Christian Fellowship. Let it be remembered therefore that this is not given as a summary of the complete revelation of biblical truth, only that it covers our present needs as to these fundamental doctrines.

We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15,16)

We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6: 4, Matthew 28: 19  Mark 12: 29)

We believe in the virgin birth of Christ, his vicarious atoning death, bodily resurrection and ascension (Isaiah 17:14 Romans: 34)

We believe in Baptism in water by full immersion for all believers (Matthew 28: 19)

We believe in divine healing through the redemptive work of Christ on the cross

(Isaiah 53: 4,5 Matthew 8; 16,17 James 5: 14)

We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit with the normal initial, physical evidence of speaking in tongues. (Acts 2:4 Acts 2: 19:6)

We believe in the present day operation of the nine gifts of the Spirit as recorded in (1 Corinthians 12 and in the ministry gifts of Christ recorded in (Ephesians 4,11,12)

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, which enables a believer to live a

holy life (Hebrews 12: 14, 1 Peter 1: 15,11,16)

We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ (Acts 24: 15 Acts 1; 11)

We believe in the millennial reign of the Lord Jesus Christ upon the earth (Revelations 20: 1,7)

We believe in everlasting punishment for the wicked (Matthew 25: 46 Matthew 13: 49,50 Luke 12: 47,48 2 Thessalonians 1: 8,9 Romans 6: 23 Revelations 20: 11,15)

We believe in the Privilege and Responsibility of bringing Tithes and Offerings to the Lord

We believe we are a Christ centered Church. Jesus Christ is Lord, and we hold Him to be pre-eminent in all things. For this reason we devote much time and attention to worship and praise.

We believe that the unity of the Spirit supersedes barriers, and welcome anyone who is open to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as Savior to fellowship with us. We recognize that we are a part of the wider fellowship of the whole body of Christ.
