What We Believe

 

The Philadelphia Church Ministries has been established in order to effectively preach, teach and use theWord of God (BIBLE) to affect the lives of its members and those they come in contact with in a more positive way. As such, the Church holds and states explicitly that:

  • We believe that the Holy Bible, consisting of 39 books of the Old  Testament and 27 books of the New Testament, is the inspired Word of God. We take the Bible as final authority in all matters concerning Christian Faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16-17, Proverbs 30:5, Revelation 22:19)
  • We believe that the Godhead consist of three separate and distinct person; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, each having separate, distinct and recognizable personalities and qualities.
  • The virgin birth of Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God; His crucifixion, death, burial, ascension and bodily resurrection, ascension and return. Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-25, Romans 1:4, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Ephesians 4:7-9)
  • That repentance complete turning away from all sins and its deceitful pleasures is require of every sinner for salvation. (Proverbs 55:7, Ezekiel 18:31-32, Mark 1:15, Luke 24:46-47, Acts 2:38; 3:19; 20:20-21; II Corinthians 7:10; and Ephesians 6:13)
  • That justification is the act of God's grace whereby one receives forgiveness and remission of sins and is counted righteous before God, through faith in the atoning blood of Jesus, standing before God as though he had never sinned. (Psalms 32:1-2, Isaiah 1:18, Micah 7:19, John 3:3-8, Acts 13:38-39, Romans 3:24, 30; 4:6-16, II Corinthians 5:17-21, Galatians 2:16, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, I Peter 1:23)
  • The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the endowment with power for Christian services with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the spirit gives the utterance. The Baptism is a second experience after conversion (Acts 2:1-5, 10; 19:1-8)
  • That water baptism by conversion, love in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is an outward public confession of the inward experience of salvation in a repentant sinner and it is a necessary act of obedience to the work of God. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15-16, Acts 2:38; 2:38-39; Romans 6:4-5)
  • That the Lord's Supper was introduced by Jesus Christ that all believers might partake regularly in remembrance of the Lord's death until He returns. (Matthew 26:26-28, Luke 22:17-20, I Corinthians 11:23-30)
  • We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and the eternal blessedness of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked and do look for a new earth wherein dwelled righteousness. (Matthew 29:49, John 4:10-11; 21:7-8, II Peter 3:13)
