What We Believe
The Bible Is The Source Of Our Belief
1 Timothy 3:16,17
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. The King James Version, (Cambridge: Cambridge) 1769.43535
Statement of Faith and Purposes
Freedom Ministries is based upon and at all times shall be consistent with the following creeds and beliefs.
I. The GODHEAD. Our God is one, but manifested in three persons–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Philippians 2:6; Hebrew3:16-17).
God the Father is greater than all; the Source of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; John
16:28; John 1:14).
Jesus is the Son of God, One with the Father, the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has
existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John 1:18; John 1:14; John 10:30).
The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 15:26).
II. ETERNAL LIFE AND NEW BIRTH. Man’s first step toward salvation is Godly sorrow that worketh
Repentance. The new birth is necessary to all men, and when fulfilled produces eternal life (II Cor.
7:10; I John 5:12; John 3:3-5).
III. WATER BAPTISM. Baptism in water is by immersion and is a direct command of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death,
burial, and resurrection (Matt. 28:19; Romans 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36-39).
IV. BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST. The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as
promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to those who are believers in this dispensation and is received
subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in
other tongues as the Holy Spirit himself gives utterance (Matt. 3:11; John 14: 16-17; Acts 1: 8; Acts
2:38-39; Acts 19: 1-7; Acts 2:4).
V. DIVINE HEALING. Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is brought by the power of
God through the prayer of faith, and by laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ,
and it is the privilege of every member of the church today (Mark 16:18; James 5:14-20; I Peter 2:24;
Matt. 8:17; Isaiah 53:4-5).
VI. RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD. The Angels said,” This
same Jesus shall so come in like manner,” His coming is immanent. When he comes, “The dead in
Christ shall rise first; then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the
clouds, to meet the Lord in the air” (Acts 1:11; I Thes. 4:16-17).
VII. COMMUNION–THE LORD’S SUPPER. We partake of the Lord’s Supper to show the Lord’s death till he comes ( I Cor. 11: 23-31).
