What We Believe

Life Changing Ministries aggressively reaches out to people who are far from God. Although our approach is anything but traditional, we believe in and maintain a strong theological position.

The Bible

 

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)

 

The Eternal Godhead

 

We believe in one God who expresses himself as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

 

The Fall of Man

 

We believe that God created man in his image and his likeness, but through voluntary disobedience man fell from perfection (Romans 5:12).

 

The Plan of Salvation

 

We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us reconciling us unto God, thus satisfying the penalty of sin for all who believe on Jesus. (John 3:16; Romans 5:8; Romans 5:10)

 

Repentance and Justification

 

We believe that when we sincerely repent, and we accept Jesus Christ, we are then justified before God. (Acts 2:38; Romans 5:1, 1 John 1:9)

 

New Birth/Being Born Again

 

We believe that there is significant change in the heart and life at the point of conversion, this we call the New Birth (John 3:5; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20)

 

Water Baptism

 

We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward change. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 8:35-38; Romans 6:3-4)

 

The Lord’s Supper

 

We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolic use of bread and the “fruit of the vine”. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

 

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit endows the believer with power. We also believe the Holy Spirit seals one until the day of redemption. (Acts 2:4; 2 Corinthians 1:22, Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 4:30)

 

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian believer, and that with the infilling of the Holy Spirit the Christian should demonstrate fruit as an evidence of being filled with the Holy Spirit. (1Corinthians 12:1-11, Galatians 5:22-23)

 

Divine Healing

 

We believe divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick in answer to the prayer of faith. (James 5:14-16)

 

The Second Coming of Christ

 

We believe in the literal and personal second coming of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 19:11- 13)

 

Civil Government

 

We believe that rulers and authorities should be held in high regard, prayed for, and obeyed except when they oppose the will of God (Romans 13:1-5; 1 Peter 2:13-20)

 

The Final Judgment

 

We believe that we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. (Romans 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:10)

 

Heaven

 

We believe in a literal heaven, which is the glorious home of born again believers.(John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17)

 

Hell

 

We believe in a literal hell where the unrepentant will be in torment day and night for rejecting Christ. (Revelation 20:10, 14-15)

 

Tithes and Offering

 

We believe that the God ordained method for supporting the spread of His cause is through the giving of tithes and offering.(Malachi 3:10; 1 Corinthians 9:7)

 

Marriage

 

We believe that Biblical and truthful marriage is between a man and a woman. Marriage was created and designed by God for procreation, mutual love, and fulfilling God ordained purpose. Marriage cannot and should not be defined or redefined by human government regardless of political or cultural pressure. (Genesis 2:21-24; Matthew 19:5-6; Hebrews 13:4)
