“Who you listen to determines what you believe, what you believe masters your choices and your choices paints your life”
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 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.
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 make people aware of their sin and their need for Jesus Christ. 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 a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
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.
People are made in the image of God. They are the supreme object of God’s creation. God’s desire is that we become like Him in character. Yet, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates us from God.
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.
Believers are commanded to be baptized into the body of Christ as a public acknowledgement of their faith in Jesus Christ, and to gather together regularly to share in the Lord’s Supper.
God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ and true believers are secure in their salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.
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 life.
