HEALING AND DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY CENTER, INC MISSION STATEMENT AND BELIEF

 

· We believe the Bible is given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, infallible, and God’s revealed word to man.

· We believe that Scripture teaches that there is only one true and living God who has chosen to reveal Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.(Duet 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22).

· We believe that man is a sinful being in need of redemption. (Genesis 1:26-31; 3:1– 7; Psalm 5:15; Eccl 7:29; John 6: 44; Romans 5: 12-21; 1 Corinthians 2:14).

· We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ; that He is the son of God and the son of man, that He came to save man from condemnation of sin by offering His blood as an atonement and  making it available to all who exercise faith in Him. (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35; John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5: 21).

· We believe that for salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (Luke 7:50, 24:47; Romans 10: 13-15; 1Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 2:15; Ephesians 2:8, 9; 2Timothy 1:9; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7).

· We believe the scriptures ascribe to the Holy Spirit the acts and attributes of an intelligent being, and that the works of God such as creation, inspiration, giving of life, and sanctification are also ascribed to the Holy Spirit. ( Genesis 1:2; Job 33:4; Mark 3:29; John 16: 8, 13; Acts 7:51, 10:19, 13:2, 13:4; 16:6; 1 Corinthians 2:11, 6:11, 12; Ephesians 4:30; 1 Peter 3:18; 2Peter 1:21).

· We believe that the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose dwelling in the Christian is enabled to live a holy life. (Romans 8:5; Philippians 2:12,13; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; 1 John 2:29).

· We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for it. (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:4).

· We believe that all mankind is subject to the death of the body as a result of Original Sin. The soul and spirit do not die, but immediately after death enter into a conscious state of happiness or misery according to the character here possessed by rejection or acceptance of the Savior. Ecclesiastes 12:7; Romans 5:12; Philippians 1: 23).

· We believe in bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved to everlasting life and the lost to everlasting damnation. (Matthew 24:31– 46; Acts 24: 15; Revelation 22:11).

· We believe the crucifixion, death, resurrection, ascension and in the personal, imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. ( Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13—18).

· We believe the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for human body in answer to believing prayer. (Isaiah 53: 4, 5; James 5:14, 15; 1 Peter 2:24).
