In order to establish and maintain a place for the worship of Almighty God, our heavenly Father, to make possible the fellowship among those who share the same religious ideologies, or the Holy Spirit may be honored according to our distinctive testimony; to take our share of the responsibility and privilege to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ by every means possible, locally and in foreign countries, we are a young Denomination that is called MISSION MOUNT OLIVES CHURCH OF GOD, Inc.. and in communion with it, and adoptions of the following articles about the churches we represent which will be submitted and ruled by the followings:
Statement of Faith
As one Christian Assembly of New Testament believers, we, Church of God Mount of Olives, Inc.. Sign the following declaration of the things that are certainly among us actually accepted beliefs (Luke 1:1), praying that there is no difference of belief that is harmful or divisive to offend anyone, or disturbing the peace and harmony of the Mission, and so we all of one mind and one judgment, and we all wanted the same language of love (1 Corint 1:10 ; Acts 2:42) and that we glorify God with one voice, for the edification of his people, and as a Christian witness in the world.
The Holy Bible
We believe the Bible, consisting of sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, without error in its original texts, and the sovereign authority in matters of faith and life.
Our God is a trinity in unity, manifested in three persons, Father, son and Holy Spirit. God is infinitely perfect, being co-existing, co-equal and co-eternal in three persons.
God is the Father and it is greater than all. (John 14:28) the source of the Word (Logos) and life (John 16:28, John 1:14)
The son is begotten of the Father. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross on him just for the unjust as to justify the sacrifice men from their sins by his blood poured through.
The Holy Spirit is a Divine Person. He is the executive of the Trinity on earth, the Comforter sent by the Lord Jesus Christ as promised.
We believe in one God eternally existing in three equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
God the Father Creator
We believe in God the Father, Creator and Lord of all. He is the author of the plan of redemption for humanity accomplished through His only Son Jesus Christ and he watches over his creation by his providence.
We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, true God and true man. We believe in his miraculous birth from a virgin, his sinless life, His atoning death, bodily resurrection, mediatorial ministry unique to the Father for the saints, his personal return to judge and reign.
The Holy Spirit of God
We believe in the Holy Spirit who convicts the world of sin, regenerates the believer or the believer, unites him to Christ and the seal or the day of redemption. Once the new birth, he remains in one who is saved by Jesus Christ, it’s team for the service and sanctify or gradually.
We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, the origin of sin and supreme enemy of God and man.
The Human Being
We believe that man was divinely created by God in his image. We believe he has sinned in Adam and Eve, so the physical and spiritual death spread to all mankind so that all people are sinners, lost and separated from God by nature and by choice, as God’s condemnation.
We believe that by his death, Jesus Christ offered himself in atonement for the sins of humanity which fully satisfies God’s justice.
The Salvation of man
We believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace available to all and to all under the atoning death of Christ, free and independent of good works (fruit of salvation and not the means). Salvation is granted to anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ. We believe that all those who are born of the Spirit of God shall be divinely preserved and finally perfected in the image of Jesus Christ. It is by grace we are saved. Eph 2:8. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Rom 3:23) The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God that’s life eternal in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Water Baptism
The water baptism is by immersion, and is a direct commandment of our Lord (Matt. 28:19, and is reserved for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ’s death, his burial and his resurrection. (Rom 6:4; Colossians 2:12, Act 8:36-39)
Dation on the following formula of water baptism is adopted as a witness: “On the confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the son of God, and by his authority. A simple statement like this is perfect “I baptize you in the name of Father, son and Holy Spirit, Amen”
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire (Matt 3:11) is a gift of God promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers of this dispensation, and it is recovered after the new birth (John 14:16-17 ) The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is accompanied by the speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, as the first physical sign and obvious. Act. 2:4
The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord (Heb. 12:14) We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a work defined, although gradual grace. It begins at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation. Heb 13:12; 2 Thess. 2:13 … etc. We also firmly believe that Biblical marriage has to do with a man and a woman as initiated by God the Father. 2 Corint. 6 and Ephes. 6. Mount Olives Mission and its affiliated churches will not celebrated or approve Same-Sex marriage by any mean necessary.
The Last Supper
The order of the Lord’s Supper is a commandment of our Savior, and being a commemoration of his death and resurrection, it is strictly limited to Christian believers 1 Cor 11:27. Time and the number of times it can be observed are left to the discretion of each congregation (1 Corint 11:26)
Only the non-fermented grape juice, the fruit of the vine, as recommended by our Lord Matthew 26:29, Mark 14:22, Luke 22:18) Utilize must be observing this ordinance.
The Washing of the Feet
Foot washing is recognized among the believers as a Christian practice, and time, and how many times it can be observed are at the discretion of each congregation and their leader. (John 13)
God the Holy Spirit, has called those he really wants to serve as evangelists, pastors, and doctors, and they recovered the one who called them talents and special gifts for this position or the position (Ephesians 4:11,13)
The Universal Church
We believe that the set of all those regenerated by the Holy Spirit and committed to Jesus Christ, their Savior, Lord and Head unique is the universal Church. It finds its visible expression in local churches and ministries whose objectives are to worship God, to glorify and proclaim the Good News of salvation to all peoples.
Healing is for physical illnesses of the human body and is operated by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands (Mark 16:18, Jacques 5:14-15) and was made possible through the Atonement of Christ, and is available to all who truly believe.
We believe in the personal and imminent return of Jesus Christ. We believe in the resurrection of all human beings, the saved and saved for eternal life, the lost and lost to judgment and everlasting punishment.
Hell and Eternal Retribution
One who is physically dead in his sins without Christ is fully and eternally lost in the lake of fire, and so he no longer has a chance to hear the Gospel or for repentance (Hebrews 9:27). The Pond of fire is literal. Appoc. 7:20 p.m. The term Lord determines that the fire will not stop, it will last forever while the saints are in God’s presence forever.
We recognize the biblical responsibility of all our people, as well as our ministers, to pay tithe to the Lord (Hebrews 7:8)
The tithe should be used to support the active ministry and for the propagation of the Gospel and the Lord’s work in general and should not be distributed to charity or used for other purposes. Mal 2:7-11, Hebrews 7:2; Corint 9:7-11, 16:2)
