Statement of Faith
Statement of Faith
Following is the statement of Bible doctrine as believed and taught by CHRIST PALACE MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL INC. aka CHRIST PALACE. Our statement of faith has its source in the Bible and is in total agreement with the foundational principles of the doctrines of Christ.
~We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, both Old and the New Testaments. (2nd Timothy 3:16, 2nd Peter 1:20-21)
He was conceived of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1: 30-35).
He died (John 19:30-35)
~We believe the two ordinances of the Church which are commanded by Christ are: -Baptism, by immersion in water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Mat 28:19-20; Acts 8:38; Rom 6:1-4; 1 Pet 3:21); and
-The Lord’s Supper, a memorial of the death, resurrection and second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 22:13-20: 1 Cor 11:23-26).
~We believe in the sanctifying Power of the Holy Ghost (Rom 15:16).
~We believe the Church of Jesus Christ is a body of believers who have Jesus as their head; who assemble to worship, who carry forth the great commission, and who minister as the Holy Spirit leads (Mat 16:18, 28:19, 20; Acts 2:20-28; Eph 4:15; 5:22-32; I Tim 3:15).
~We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, primarily evidenced by speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, is for all believers as promised by John the Baptist (Mat 3:11), Jesus (Acts 1:4, 5, 8), and Peter (Acts 2:38-41) and as witnessed by the early disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 2:1-4; 10:44-46; 19:6).
~We believe God uses doctors, medicines, and other material means for healing, but that divine healing is also provided in the atonement (Isa 53:5) and may be appropriated by laying on of hands by elders (James 5:14-16) or by believers (Mark 16:18), by the prayers of any believer gifted for healing the sick (I Cor 12:9), or by a direct act of receiving this provision by faith (Mark 11:23).
~ We believe in the final resurrection of both the saved and the lost – the save to eternal life and the lost to eternal judgment (Rev 20:11-15).
