our beliefs

Amazing Church is a non-denominational ministry that believes we have a responsibility to carry out the

Great Commission of Jesus Christ to go and make disciples of men. We intend to do this through our beliefs:

THE SCRIPTURES

The Bible is the inspired Word of God. The new covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, is what we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine (I Thessalonians 2:13, II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21).

THE GODHEAD

Our God is one but is manifested in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit being co-equal (I John 5:7, John 1:14; 14:28). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 15:26).

MAN: HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION

Man is a created being, made in the likeness and the image of God, but through Adam's transgression and fall, sin came into the world. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and to give His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (I John 3:8, Romans 3:23, Romans 3:10).

SALVATION OF MAN

Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law, by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8). The new birth is necessary to all men, and when fulfilled, it produces eternal life (John 3:3-5, II Corinthians 7:10).

DIVINE HEALING

Healing according to scripture. (Isa. 53:4-5, 1Cor. 12:9, James 5:14, Mark 16:17-18, Matt. 18:19, Mark 11:24)

WATER BAPTISM

Baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian's identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:36-39, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12).

BAPTISM OF 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. This experience is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8; 2:4).

SANCTIFICATION

We believe in 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 (I Thessalonians 5:23, II Peter 3:18, II Corinthians 3:18).

RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR

His coming is imminent. When He comes...(Acts 1:11, I Thessalonians 4:16-17). Following the tribulation, He shall return to the earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Then, together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign for a thousand years (Revelation 20:6).

HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION

The one, who physically dies in his sins without Christ, is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire, and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The Lake of Fire is literal (Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 19:20).

HEAVEN

Place of eternity promised by God (Heb 9:24, Matt. 3:2, 5:16, Col. 1:5)
