WHAT WE BELIEVE

Faith Bible Church is a nondenominational, multi-ethnic, spirit-filled, bible believing church. Our mission is to reach out to those who are hurting and lost with the love of God and to strengthen and encourage the believer.

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were directed by the Holy Spirit. We accept the Bible as God’s infallible truth in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21; John 17:17)

  • Our God is One, but manifested in three Persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We worship one God, Who exists and manifests Himself in three distinct persons - God the Father, God the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit - all being in perfect harmony and unity. They are coequal and co-eternal. (Philippians 2:6; 1 John 5:7; John 1:1)

  • Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. Man was created by God, in God’s image and after His likeness. Man was given a position of dominion and authority in the Earth and had fellowship [spiritual life] with God. Man was given a free will and the ability to reproduce after his own kind. (Genesis 1:26-28; Genesis 2:15-17; Genesis 1:11-12

  • Salvation is the gift of God to man through faith in Jesus Christ. Restoration of fellowship with God the Father, eternal life, and the New Birth are now available to mankind by personally accepting what the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished through His substitutionary death and His resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

  • The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life. Restoration of fellowship with God the Father, eternal life, and the New Birth are now available to mankind by personally accepting what the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished through His substitutionary death and His resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

  • Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The Ordinance of Water Baptism was established, exemplified, and commanded to be continued by the Lord Jesus Christ. Baptism in water is by immersion and is for believers only. It is an outward sign of an inward experience and is symbolic of a Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39)

  • The Baptism in the Holy Ghost is a gift and is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ and is available to all believers after the New Birth. The experience is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself, gives utterance. (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:4)

  • We believe in sanctification, which is living a life of holiness. Sanctification is a twofold experience. At the time of the New Birth, all believers are sanctified, or separated from the world system, set apart by God for a specific and holy use. The second experience is an ongoing work of grace by the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life as the believer cooperates with the Holy Spirit by being a doer of the Word of God. (2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Corinthians 1:30; Hebrews 10:10)

  • Healing is the privilege of every member of the Church today provided through Jesus’ death on the Cross. It is God’s will that all people be healed today. Healing for the human body has been provided through the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Various methods of receiving healing are recorded in the Word of God. (Exodus 15:26; Isaiah 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24; Psalm 107:20)

  • Jesus will return. The Word of God teaches that the Lord Jesus Christ will return for His Church before the time described in the New Testament as The Tribulation. At that time, the bodies of the dead in Christ shall be changed and rise first; then, believers which are alive shall also receive new bodies and rise to meet the Lord Jesus Christ in the air. His coming is imminent. (1 Thessalonians 5:1-9; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53)

  • The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is eternally lost and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. Those who die without accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior suffer eternal separation from God and are hopelessly and eternally lost. They will live eternally in the Lake of Fire with no further opportunity for hearing the Gospel or repenting. The Lake of Fire is literal. The terms eternal and everlasting used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the Lake of Fire carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of the saints in the presence of God. (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 19:20)
