Church of the firstborn, We believe
THE BIBLE - is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
OUR GOD - one, but manifest in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, being co-equal.
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.
ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH - Man’s first step towards salvation is Godly sorrow that "worketh" repentance.
WATER BAPTISM - Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only.
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST - The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth.
SANCTIFICATION - The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return.
DIVINE HEALING - Healing is for physical illness of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands.
RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD - The angels said to Jesus’ disciples, “...this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” His coming is immanent.
HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION -The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting.
COUNSELING - The Holy Bible states in the book of Proverbs 11:14, “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” (KJV) Faith-based counseling is available.
OUTREACH - In the gospel of Matthew 9: 35 it is recorded how Jesus Christ ran His outreach ministry. "And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, Outreach Ministry is Faith-Base established upon the Word of God and will not discriminate against anyone for any reason.
TITHES AND OFFERINGS - It is the Lord’s plan and will that each member of His Body (the Church) support the preaching of the gospel with their Prayers, Tithes and Offerings.
