THREE-FOLD BLESSINGS OF CHRIST
The spiritual blessing of Christ is eternal life, made possible through the atoning action of Jesus Christ. The regenerating work of the Holy Spirit provides the salvation of Christ for all who respond to God’s loving grace through faith. The continuing work of the Holy Spirit, indwellingthe Christian, empowers the Christian to live a godly, holy and victorious life. The baptism or fullness of the Holy Spirit provides power for service.
John 3; Luke 24:45-47; Romans 10:9-10; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 1 Corinthians 13; Galatians 5:22-24.
The healing blessing of Christ is a life of wholeness and health. Divine healing through the power of Holy Spirit, integral to the gospel, is the result of God’s loving grace, and is provided through God’s atoning sacrifice. All healing, whether through divine action or medical science, isthe work of God. The fulfilled healing of all people will be found in the eternal, resurrection life of all persons who have placed their faith in Christ.
Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 9:35; Acts 10:38; James 5:14-16.
The financial blessing of Christ provides for the lifting up of the poor and downtrodden, bringing hope to humanity. It includes the fullness of life, spiritual and financial prosperity. With this prosperity comes a responsibility to fulfill the mandates of Christ and kingdom purposes. We believe that God will help His followers to prosper and be successful, giving his provisions to and through the believer.
Genesis 12:1-3; Luke 4:18-19; Phili
ppians 5:19; 2 Corinthians 9:6-12.
We believe in salvation through the incarnation of Jesus Christ, his atoning life, death and resurrection, provided through the action of the Holy Spirit, expressed in a life of devotion, worship, and service in and through the community of Christ.
John 3; Luke 24:45-47; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5-6
We believe that through the grace of God and in the life and atonement of Christ, God provides healing, including physical healing to a broken humanity. All healing is the work of God.
Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 9:35; Acts 10:38; James 5:14-16
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit, implemented at Pentecost, is the promise of the Father for all Christians, providing power for faithful, victorious Christian living, power for effective service. We believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including speaking in tongues, are viable and desirable today, working within the individual and within the Christian community.
Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 1 Corinthians 12
SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We believe that Jesus will return to earth, wherein all Christians who have died will one day rise from their graves and will meet the Lord. Christians of all ages will live with God forever.
Matthew 24; Mark 13:24-37; 1Thessalonians 4:13-5:11; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
