Grace Christian Ministries is a non-denominational ministry that believes in the foundation truths of the Christian Faith. We believe in the all-knowing; all supreme; and all-powerful God that exists in three persons. We believe that God is represented in three persons; The Father (Creator and Supreme Being) The Son, (Jesus Christ; The Word) and the Holy Spirit (God’s Presence or Spirit) According to I John chapter 5; verse 7; Gospel of John chapter 1 verses 1-14.
We believe that God is the Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of the world and the final judgment for eternity comes from Him. We believe that Jesus Christ is his Son who was made alive in human form. We believe that Jesus Christ was born in the earth by the power of God’s Spirit and lived a perfect and sinless life.
We believe that Jesus Christ entered the world to sacrifice His life for the sins of the world (John 3:16-17). We believe that Jesus Christ was resurrected by God’s power after three days and ascended to be with God to sit at His right hand. (Mark 16:19).
We believe according to the Gospel of John 14:16-18 the Holy Spirit is the promise that Jesus said the Father (God) would send to help, comfort, lead, and guide us concerning truth. We believe upon receiving Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of us and regenerates us into the nature of God (Eph. 2:1-10).
Although we cannot physically see God we know that He is, for these reasons:
A. He is and existed before the world began (Gen. Chapt. 1&2).
B. He is represented in plural formm, although He is God when He used the phrase, “Let US make mankind in OUR Image; after OUR likeness” (Genesis 1:26-28).
C. He sent His Son into the earth in an unconventional way or without any reproductive method (Matt. 1:18-21).
D. Our lives are changed by God’s power and we testify of that by living out our faith (2 Cor. 5:17).
E. We accept God at His word and believe (Heb. 11:6).
