we believe and teach
In each and every service, we endeavor to present the message of Jesus Christ.
-His virgin birth
-His powerful sinless life
-His death for our sins
-His literal resurrection
-His ascension into heaven
-His personal, bodily, visible and imminent return
We also teach Man's need:
-Each individual is born with a sinful nature and is utterly lost and deserving of punishment.(Romans 3:23, 6:24)
-God sent His only Son Jesus to pay for our sins by dying on the cross.
-By shedding his blood, He became our perfect substitute.(1 Peter 1:18,19)
-We are incapable of pleasing God
-We must by faith receive Him as our personal Savior and Lord
-Confess and turn from all known sin
-We are born again of the Holy Spirit and become children of God.(Romans 5:1, John 1:12
We also believe and may teach
-that the scriptures, both Old and New Testament are the inspired Word of God, without error, and are complete. ( 2 Timothy 3:16)
-that there is one holy, almighty God, the creator of all things, eternally existing in three coequal persons; Father, Son,and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
-the reality and personality of Satan, demons and fallen angels are the enemies of God, the saints and the holy angels. (Job 1:6-12)
-that the "church", which is the body of Christ is composed of all born again believers.(Ephesians 1:22-23)
-that the the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict of sin, righteousness and judgment, to regenerate those who receive Christ by faith, to indwell, instruct, sanctify, fill and empower the believer for godly living and service. (John 16:7-14, Acts 1:8)
-that there will be a bodily resurrection of the saints and the sinners; the former to heaven, the latter to hell. (Luke 16:19-31, Rev. 20:11-15)
-In a literal view of the Genesis creation in 6 days.
As visiting evangelists, we will not use your platform as a opportunity to express our personal convictions nor will we contradict any particular teachings or traditions that your church adheres to.
We are evangelist and believe firmly that children can make a decision to follow Christ. Matthew 18.6 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. This verse states clearly that children can “believe” in Jesus. In every service we will give an invitation, it will be brief and without emotional pleas, but child friendly. We do not use scare tactics or warnings about hell.
At the invitation time Pastor Jerry will say “If you are here today and would like to pray about asking Jesus to come into your life, you can bow your head and repeat after me”. Pastor Jerry will lead them in a short conversation style prayer.
