Tenet of Faith

Find below Our Tenet of Faith

 

  1. There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the Just for unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice; and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His Kingdom of righteousness and peace.
  3. The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
  4. The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. These constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
  5. Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God; he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The portion of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.
  6. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ alone for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become children of God. There is no salvation in any other religion or in any other name. A person’s allegiance to any religion without Christ cannot save him or her. Christ Jesus is the only person that was physically born by a woman without union with a human father so that His blood can be freed from Adam’s sin. He is the only one that is qualified to reconcile the fallen man with God. Anybody that reject Christ Jesus alone as his personal Lord and Savior cannot enter into eternal life (John 14:6).
  7. It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from the sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.
  8. Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are mentioned in the Scriptures; they are privileges for the Church in this present age? We teach that “anointing with oil” as quoted in James is a metaphor that represent one of the fourteen emblems of the Holy Spirit, but not the physical oil since Jesus Christ never used physical oil in His healing ministry, and there is no Biblical record that confirms that any of the apostles used oil for healing, ordination, or miracles after the day of Pentecost. That is, since whatever the apostles/disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ did, before His resurrection (Mark 6) and before they were individually filled with the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2), was not repeated by them in and outside the church after the Holy Spirit is given to them for direction; and this includes anointing the sick with oil. Thus, in order to effect unity with Christ, we forbid the use of anointing with physical oil. We worship God in truth and in spirit (John 4:23-24).
  9. We teach that the use of physical oil, consecrated water or physical cross of Jesus, image of any so-called saint and those that had died physically or any physical thing in worshiping God and/or for miracle is against the teaching of Christ, the apostles and the Bible; hence, in our ministries, we practice the Lord’s supper and water baptism alone as the only two physical ordinances in obedience to Christ’s teachings. Other than the aforementioned, we strictly forbid the use of anything physical for worship, for healing, for miracles, or for any spiritual thing in our midst because it is idolatry (Exodus 20:3-6). We condemn the use of so-called physical holy anointing oil in its entirety because Jesus Christ never use it; His Apostles and the first century church never use it after the day of Pentecost. 
  10. The church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through his blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit (John 3:3; Romans 5:9; Galatians 1:15; 2:20; 2 Corinthians 5:16-17, 20). Christ is the Head of the body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the Gospel and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. A true Christian must be conformed to the image, likeness, behavior, and character of Jesus Christ.
  11. There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment of hell fire.
  12. The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and pre-millennial. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.
  13. All our spiritual workers cannot take alcoholic beverage, cigarettes, and illegal drugs. Moreover, we cannot give it to people nor engage in business that involves any of such.
  14. We teach that marriage is a permanent institution between two believers that is a man and a woman, we affirm that the curse of ruler-ship of man over his wife; and that of woman over her husband had been removed by Christ on the Cross of Calvary since He has redeemed all from the curse of the law; hence husband and wife must live together in love as partners (Galatians 3:10-13). There must be no sexual or romantic relationship between two people that are not married until they are publicly joined together by a licensed or ordained minister (Hebrew 13:4; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18). A pregnant lady will not be joined in holy matrimony because the couple had committed the sin of fornication. Divorce is forbidden in Absolute Faith unless the wife committed the sin of adultery. If a person is a divorcee before joining any ministry of the church he or she may be ordained, but any worker of the Absolute Faith or its subsidiary that was involved in divorce will lose his or her certification/license unless the divorce is a result of adultery that is committed by the wife or the husband. Moreover, if a man commits adultery, he shall be publicly punished before the congregation and conference. Since homosexuality is a sin like all other sins and an act of rebellious attitude against the living God. Hence, we disapprove same-sex marriage in its totality (Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:26-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

We teach that the fruit of the spirit that is called love must be in the life of the church members. Since where there is no love there can be no God, all Absolute Faith workers must not be part to malice, conspiracy, strife, backbiting, disunity and must not hold grudge. Holy love among brethren, within our congregation and in Christian home must be sought, practiced, and prayed for, because where there is no love there can be no God (Mark 11:22-26; 1 John 4:6-9; John 13:34-35). Hence, love must continuously contagious within our organization.
