What We Believe

“Who you listen to determines what you believe…what you believe masters your choices and your choices paints  your life”
-Pastor Stephen Marshall

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of All Nations Church  based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed and has been revealed to us as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

Our Lord Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory as our mediator with the Father and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is present in the world to unfold our need of Jesus as our Savior and to declare, disclose and transmit the will of Father God to us. To unfold the goodness of God and convict, comfort and help us live in the Kingdom of God and the Will of God in everyday life. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of Salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual Truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts that are to be unfolded, received and walked in. We seek to live in His comfort, direction and help daily.

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without error.

Human Beings

We were made in the image of God Himself to rule and reign through Christ Jesus in God’s Way and Will on this earth.

Salvation

Salvation is possible only because of the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sins, the punishment of which is death. When we repent, we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, and we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment a person receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.

Baptism

Believers are commanded to be baptized into the body of Christ as a public acknowledgement of their faith in Jesus Christ. Contact us to be baptized.

Abundant Eternal Life

Jesus said “ I came to give you abundant life”. We will either exist eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation or be separated from God because of our sin. To be separated from God is death. To be eternally in union with Him is everlasting abundant life starting right now.
