Doctrinal Statement

Know All Men By These Presents - That The First International Church Of The Web

Believes that the Bible is God's Holy Word, verbally and fully inspired in the original text, and that it is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

Believes that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Believes in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Christ.

Believes in Jesus Christ, the divine, eternal and only begotten Son of God. We believe that in His earthly life He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin and lived a sinless life. We believe in His vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world. We believe in His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension to the right hand of the Father to make intercession for the saints, and in His personal, visible return to the world in power and glory.

Believes in the Holy Spirit, in His personality and deity, that He was sent forth from the Father to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. We believe that He is come to regenerate, indwell, sanctify, instruct and comfort the saints.

Believes that all men are, by nature and by choice, sinners, destitute of all power to save themselves. We believe, therefore, that the only means of salvation of sinful men is the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit on the basis of the atoning work of Christ through personal faith in Christ. We believe in the resurrection of all men, those that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation.

Believes in the Church --- the living spiritual body of which Jesus Christ is the Head and of which all regenerated persons are members. We believe that the Lord laid upon the Church the task of persuading a lost and sinful world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master in their lives. We believe that a web-based church on the internet is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, and associated for worship, work, fellowship, and ministry to one another and others.

Believes that all Christians are ordained by the Holy Spirit to spread the Gospel of Christ.

Believes in all gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Believes it is the primary duty of all Christians to serve as evangelists, and to minister to others according to the gifts they have received of the Holy Spirit.

Believes that the Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest gift of God the Father and His Holy Spirit, and should be the primary message of the Christian church, taking precedence over all differences, whether they be theological, denominational, ideological, or physical in nature.
