The statutes and the internal regulations of the ministry as an organization are summarized in THE WORD OF GOD. They correspond to the 66 books of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. The course of conduct of the faithful and leaders, the sanctions applied and the doctrine taught are consequent. Before proceeding with the profession of faith proper, it would be advisable to spend a little time on doctrine.
We believe that the Holy Bible is the only Word of God and is entirely authoritative in matters of faith and belief. Any other book or revelation that the Bible does not confirm is not reliable, even if its author claims to see God’s face continuously. To preserve us from the abuses that have undermined Christian milieu in recent centuries, the Lord has given us two major prophetic visions. The first was received on June 18, 1993, and the second was received 8 years to the day, that is, on June 18, 2001.
These prophetic visions should serve as a safeguard for the sanctifying life of our churches and prevent our leaders, pastors and founders from encroaching into the unbridled race for personal gain and prevailing immorality at the expense of the moral and spiritual values of the gospel. All these prophecies are at our disposal in this platform.
All our followers and collaborators should be Bible scholars, filled with the Holy Spirit and wisdom in order to perpetuate the biblical and supernatural continuity of our ministry.
THE PROFESSION OF FAITH
Here is a broad outline of our ministry’s confession of faith.
- We believe that the Bible (Old and New Testaments) is beautiful and well the inspired word of God. (2 Timothy 3: 16 ; 2 Peter 1 : 21 ; Isaiah 40 : 8).
- We believe in God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:13).
- We believe in the Holy Spirit, His power, His gifts and His fruits. (John 14:15-26; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-9; Galatians 5:22-23).
- Our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ:
- His virgin birth.(Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:31-35; John 1:14).
- His sinless life (1 Peter 2:22; 2Corinthians 5:21).
- His sacrifice by His death (Isaiah 53 : 3 ; 1 John 2:1-2).
- His resurrection (Mark 16:6; 1Corinthians 16:20).
- His ascension (Acts 1:9-11; Mark 16:19).
- His work in heaven as intercessor (1 John 2:1; Romans 8:34).
- His second coming (John 14:1-3; 1Thessalonians 4:16-18).
- His millennial reign (Revelation 20:1-7).
- We believe that there is eternal life for those who believe in Jesus Christ and eternal suffering in hell or the lake of fire for those who do not believe in Jesus Christ. (Matthew 25:46; John 5:29; Daniel 12:2; Revelation 21:8).
- We accept that God created man in his image and man, having fallen into sin, died, and that he can return to God, to life, only through Jesus Christ alone. (Romans 3 : 23 ; Ephesians 2:1; John 14:6; Acts 4:12).
- We accept that the Church represents God on earth. (2 Corinthians 5:19-20; Matthew 5:13-16).
- We accept that it is in the hands of the Church that Jesus Christ has handed over the work of preaching the gospel. (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-20; Acts 1:8).
- We accept that true repentance and new birth are obligatory to become Christian. (Luke 13:3-5; John 3:1; 2 Corinthians 5:17).
- We believe in baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. (Matthew 3:1-17; 28: 19-20; Mark 16:16; Luke 22:14-20; 1Corinthians 11:23-31).
- We accept that the Church of God must have the predecessors: that is, the gifts of men evoked in the texts as references to lead it. (Ephesians 4:11; Romans 12:4-6).
- We accept the application of tithes and offerings, as well as financial assistance for the advancement of God’s work. (Malachi 3:8-12; 1Corinthians 9:7-14; 2Corinthians 9:6-11).
- We accept that the Christian has very important duties towards:
- political-administrative authorities (Romans 13:1-7; 1 Peter 2:13-14).
- Parents (Ephesians 6:5-8; Colossians 3:22-25).
- Heads of service (Ephesians 6:5-8; Colossians 3:22-25).
- Spouses in the management of authority in the home (Ephesians 5:22-25; Colossians 3:18).
- From God: the orders of the aforementioned authorities must not contradict those of God. For God remains and remains the supreme authority. Daniel 4 : 22; Luke 14 : 26).
- Discipline and dismissal from the Church apply to everyone who does not stand in truth and in the will of God. (1 Corinthians 5 : 11-13; 1Timothy 5 : 20).
- Marriage and home are principles set by God Himself, and He commanded that the wife should not separate from her husband and vice versa, for they have both become one flesh except death separates them (Genesis 1:26-28; Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:4-6; 1Corinthians 7:10-11; Romans 7:1-3).
- The Christian must flee:
- Obscurantism, exotericism, magic and idolatry etc. (Exodus 2 : 1-5; Deuteronomy 18:9-14).
- Alcoholic beverages and tobacco (1Corinthians 3:16-17; 6:12; 2Corinthians 7 : 1 ; Proverbs 23:20-21, 29-35; Isaiah 5:22, 28:7).
- Adultery, fornication, polygamy and the pleasures of the world (1Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19-21; 1Timothy 5:6; James 4:4; 1John 2:15-17).
