Organizational Statement of Faith


Removing Mountains Ministries Statement of Faith? ‚?WE BELIEVE there is but one God, the Father, from who are all things, and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things and we exist through Him; that God created the world and all things through His own Word; that this Word is called His Son; was made flesh in the womb of the Virgin; dwelt among men preaching the kingdom of heaven; was crucified and then rose on the third day; ascended to the right hand of the Father; has sent the Power of the Holy Spirit to such as believe; will return in the glory of the Father for the saints, and condemn the wicked to eternal punishment. ‚? Seven Tenets of Faith I - WE BELIEVE that the sixty-six books commonly accepted by the evangelical Christian church, without benefit of the apocrypha or any other extra-Biblical writing, make up the whole of the Sacred Scriptures, and that these Scriptures alone contain the full and accurate revelation of that which pertains to God and to His creation. [Psalm 119; 2 Timothy 3:14-17] II - WE BELIEVE that the Church of Jesus Christ is made up of true believers from every age, kindred, and tongue, and that this Church is transcendent in nature, being the body of Christ, existing without schism in its spiritual essence, and that the Church has only one Great Shepherd and Bishop, Christ Jesus Himself. [Matt. 16:17-19; Col. 1:18; Heb. 12:22-24; 13:20,21; 1 Pet. 2:25] III - WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus meets with every true gathering of Christian believers in the person of His Spirit, that is, the Holy Spirit, and that He oversees each local church body by the Holy Spirit, and by those whom He appoints as overseers. [Matt. 18:18-20; Rev. 1:17-20; 2:1; Eph. 4:11-13; 1 Pet. 5:1-4] IV - WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the head of every Christian man and therefore the true head of every Christian family, and that the universal Church, the local Church, and every Christian man and family are each under the direct Lordship of Jesus Christ. (Col. 1:18; Matt. 18:20; 1 Co. 3:21-23; 11:3] V - WE BELIEVE in the security of the believer, and that every believer is made complete in Christ at the new birth; that in the new birth, believers receive the Holy Spirit as part of their inheritance in the Lord. [John 1:16; 14:16-18; Eph. 1:13,14; Col. 2:8-13] VI - WE BELIEVE in miracles and healings, in the power and gifts and operations of the Holy Spirit, in the providence and provision of God, and that He has given both instructions and promises as pertaining to these things in the Holy Scriptures. [Matt. 17:19,20; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; 1 Co. 12:27-31; 2 Co. 1:19-22; Heb. 2:4; Eph. 1:18-23; 3:20,21] VII - WE BELIEVE that all authority in heaven and on earth rests in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that believers have been commissioned to do all things in His name, from casting out demons, to water baptism, to asking and receiving in prayer, and that believers in every place should bear witness to Jesus Christ by whatever means possible. [Matt. 28:18-20; Rev. 4:11; 5:13; Mark 16:15-18; Luke 24:46,47; Acts 2:37-40; Col. 3:17; John 14:12-14] Statement of Values Removing Mountains Ministries has adopted the following Statement of Values, which guides all of our actions and planning.
