Articles of Faith: Seperation


We believe that the Scriptures clearly teach every believer to live a life of seperation unto the Lord from all worldly and sinful practices, to abide in Christ; to walk in the Spirit; and to enjoy the victory over the world, the flesh and the devil. - Ro. 12:1,2; II Cor. 6:4-7; I John 2:15-17; Col. 3:1-17

WE TAKE A STAND AGAINST

Neo-orthodoxy: This method of scriptual interpretation is false and deceiving. Instead of presenting the truth, this method presents a half-truth. It is inconsistent with the Word of God. We utterly reject this method.

Neo-evangelism: The neo-evangelism is one of attitude rather than of doctrine. It compromises with the modernists and liberals in cooperative efforts in evangelism and other so-called Christian endeavors. We can not link hands with these who discredit Christ and undermine Scriptual inspiration. This leads to the acceptance of the ecumenical church.

Ecumenical movement: This is a movementto unite all faiths in a worldwide church. This movement does not raise the standards if morality but it is a contributing factor to the destruction of the moral fiber of many men today. This united church is only laying the ground work for the tribulation which climaxes in Revelation 17.

Charismatic Movement: This unbiblical modern movement accepts the speaking in tounges as a gift of the Spirit for present-day Christuanity in violation of clear Scriptual doctrine and admonitions. Erroneous Biblical interpretations and practices concerning the manifestations of the work of the Holy Spirit, the security of the believer's salvation, and physical movement appeal, as it leads more and more astray from the true teachings of the Scripture.

Calvinism: We reject the five points of Calvinism. These five points teach, (1) That because of Adam's fall the entire himan race is dead in trespasses and is totally unable to save himself. (2) That God in eternity past chose those who would go to heaven. (3) That Christ only died for those chosen to go to heaven. (4) Those who are chosen for heaven are unable to resist the grace of God for salvation. (5) Those who are chosen are able to preserve themselves and never be lost. God has given each and every person free will to recieve or reject Christ and each person will be held accountable for his own personal choice.
