PostSubject: OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH   OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH EmptyThu Aug 26, 2010 5:10 am

True Beginning Ministries

Concerning God:
1. We believe that God is the creator of everything that is good. He is Christ's father, our father
through rebirth. (Gen.1:1, John 1:3)

Concerning Jesus:
2. We believe Jesus is the son of God sent to be our savior, He died, was buried and on the third
day he rose to be seated at the right hand of the father in victory. He is our redeemer and in no other
name can we call upon to be saved, only through belief in him and his gospel can we receive salvation.
(John 3:16, Mark 1:14)

Concerning Holy Spirit:
3. We believe that The Holy Spirit is literally that, God's Holy Spirit which dwelt inside of
Christ as it does within us through our faith. The Holy Spirit, God, and Christ are all three
separate entities yet they all three exist and agree with each other. Our belief in Christ
allows the Holy Spirit to dwell within us so that we become part of this spiritual body. Or
church. Christ left his Holy Spirit here with us to lead, guides, and Comfort us until his return.
(John 15:26,16:7-8,13-15) The Holy Spirit is a gift as recieved in Acts 2:38

Concerning the Gospel:
4. We believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ: His baptism, his death, his burial, his
resurrection- and his one day return. As Christians we await the day we can be united
with our Lord and Savior- and return home! Once we heard the gospel it gave us the
reason for our "Faith". (Eph 2:8-10)

Concerning Baptism:
5. We believe that baptism should come in the form of full emersion and that this is
something that we do in obedience to the scriptures upon hearing the gospel. It is a public
show of our faith. It is an act that joins us with the father, son, and spirit - It unites us with
the "Church", or body- in a spiritual and literal sense... (Rom 6:1-6) We are told to do so in
Acts 2:38.

Concerning salvation:
6. We believe that salvation is eternal life that is given to us as a free gift from God,
delivered through Christ. You receive this eternal life by hearing the gospel and obeying it.
It is our faith in Christ that saves us!!! (Acts 4:12, Titus 2:11) Acts 2:38 tells us exactley
what we must do to be saved, we should obey!

Concerning The Bible:
7. We believe that The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God delivered through
chosen men. We believe that it is to be used for correction, training, and guidance. Its
words are to be used as the absolute authority and not disputed; all we need to know to
get to heaven is contained within. It tells us how to be righteous- and we should obey...
(2 Tim 3:16)

Concerning Spiritual Gifts:
8. We believe that the gifts of the spirit are distributed among the believers as the
spirit deems fit, we are not in control- nor can we control the power of God. He chooses
and distributes as he deems. The gifts of the spirit are to be used to edify the church, not
to be abused as the Corinthians did. (1 Cor 12:7, Eph 4:13-16)

Concerning Fellowship:
9. We believe that fellowship is essential and should be a very important part of our
Christian life. Fellowship opportunities are to be used for empowering each other to stay
faithful and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide. ( Gal 2:9, Phil 2:1, Acts 2:42,
2 Cor 8:4)

Concerning Service:
10. We believe that service comes naturally with faith they are partners together for
God's glory. You can’t have one without the other. Our service should not be used as a
tool to get to heaven because it won't work. Our deeds are only recognized when they
are natural and sincere not when they are thought out, planned. Service can be a blessing
or a curse, its how you utilize it for Gods Glory! (Gen 2:5, Gen. 3:17-19, Faith and works
are partners 2:26)

Concerning Christianity;
11. We believe that as a Christian it is our duty to share these beliefs and uphold them
in our daily lives through our Character, always bringing Honor and Glory to God, through his
son Jesus Christ!!! ( Matt 28:19-20)
