What We Believe

HOLY TEMPLE OF JESUS CHRIST #11 FAIRBANKS

“ a small church where great things are happening”

Doctrine: Apostolic / Five-Fold Ministry

         “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.” (Acts 2:42)

What We Believe:

1. There is One true and living God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

2. The Divine inspiration, revelation and the authority of the Holy Scriptures

3. The corruption of man through the Fall; the necessity of repentance and regeneration(born again, a new creation in Christ Jesus)by grace and through faith in Christ alone AND the eternal separation from God of those that refuse to repent  and believe in God;

4. Jesus was born through a Virgin birth, lived a sinless life, atoning death, triumphant resurrection, ascended and is seated at the right hand of God in Heaven where He continues with intercession for the believers, His second coming and His millennial reign upon earth;

5. Salvation is free and comes from God alone. It is defined as repentance, baptism by water immersion (in Jesus’ name) for the remission of our sins, and baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues;

6. Believers are justified and sanctified through the finished work of Jesus Christ;

7. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with supernatural signs, empowering the church body for God’s Divine Plan in the world;

8. The gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the church and ministry to the world;

9. The Holy Ordinances of the church are: Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s supper;

10. Jesus Christ’s leadership of the church through the Five-Fold Ministry of: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors, and Teachers for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ;

11. The security of the believers as he / she remains in Christ;

12. The privilege and the responsibility of the believers to bring tithes and offerings to the Lord.
