Let It Be Known By All People That- Shield Of Faith Christian Ministries
Believes that the Bible is God's Holy Word, verbally and fully inspired in
the original text, and that it is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
Believes that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.
Believes in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless
in power. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of all people, that He hears and answers prayer, and
that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Christ.
Believes in Jesus Christ, the divine, eternal and only begotten Son of God.
We believe that in His earthly life He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin and lived a sinless life. We believe
in His vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world. We believe in His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension
to the right hand of the Father to make intercession for the saints, and in His personal, visible return to the world in power
Believes in the Holy Spirit, in His personality and deity, that He was sent
forth from the Father to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. We believe that He is come to regenerate,
indwell, sanctify, instruct and comfort the saints.
Believes that all people are, by nature and by choice, sinners, destitute
of all power to save themselves. We believe, therefore, that the only means of salvation of sinful people is the regenerating
work of the Holy Spirit on the basis of the atoning work of Christ through personal faith in Christ.
We believe in the resurrection of all people:
- At physical death the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious
fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting glory and blessing.
- At physical death the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious
separation from the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting judgment and condemnation.
Believes in the Church---the living spiritual body of which Jesus Christ is
the Head and of which all regenerated persons are members. We believe that the Lord laid upon the Church the task of persuading
a lost and sinful world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master in their lives. We believe
that a web-based church on the internet is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, and associated for worship, work, fellowship,
and ministry to one another and others.
Believes that all Christians are ordained by the Holy Spirit to spread the
Gospel of Christ.
Believes in all gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Believes it is the primary duty of all Christians to serve as evangelists,
and to minister to others according to the gifts they have received of the Holy Spirit.
Believes that the Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest gift of God
the Father and His Holy Spirit, and should be the primary message of the Christian church, taking precedence over all differences,
whether they be theological, denominational, ideological, or physical in nature.
Believes that the institution of Marriage should exist solely
in the Biblical ideal of being between One Man and One Woman.
Believes that all applicants for ordination living with someone of the opposite sex
must be married to that person; no civil unions or unmarried cohabitation will be acceptable.
