For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
The following are the core beliefs of Jesus is Lord Foundation International 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.
There is one eternally existing God We believe that there is only one true God, the Creator and Sustainer of all creatures. He is infinitely perfect in all of His attributes.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
We believe that our Lord, Jesus Christ is fully divine and fully human, the only Begotten Son of God. We believe in His substitutionary death for the sins of all men. He is alive and He will return bodily to judge the quick and the dead (I Corinthians 15:3-4).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, the Third Person of the Trinity. He seals the believers for the day of redemption and gives us grace and power to live and work for God. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit manifesting in the fruits and gifts of the Spirit (I Corinthians 12:4-10, Galatians 5:22-23).
The HOLY BIBLE
We believe that the Bible is the revelation of God’s mind to man. It is His inspired word which is perfectly sufficient to know God and His will necessary for the eternal welfare of mankind. We take it as infallible, supreme and the final authority for the Christian faith and life (II Timothy 3:15-17).
We believe that man was originally created by a definite act of God in His own image to fellowship with Him and fulfil God’s purpose in Genesis 1:26.
We believe that man fell from his state of moral perfection because of sin. So, all need to repent and accept the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. Salvation becomes effective as a person receives the finished work of Calvary. This salvation is available to anyone who will believe and receive.
We believe the ordinance of water baptism according to the command of God. For every one after the New Birth. It should be by immersion as a public identification with our Lord Jesus’ death and resurrection. From then on a believer should walk in the newness of life (Romans 6:3-8).
THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
We believe that the Christian life should be lived out in all aspects of a believer’s life in obedience to the principles of the Holy Scriptures and the guidance of the Holy Spirit (I Timothy 4:12). A Christian’s goal is to be conformed to the image of Christ as he makes Him the Lord over all areas of his life.
We believe that that the Church of Jesus Christ is the universal Body of God’s redeemed people visibly expressed in local assemblies whose purpose is to glorify God through worship, fellowship and ministry. We also believe in Body Ministry for the edifying of the Church and the growth of the kingdom of God.
We believe that Christians are stewards of the grace of God, so every believer should be a faithful steward of his life and all God-given resources. Therefore, there must be financial commitment to tithes, offerings, pledges, and other seeds as part of a Christian’s obedience to God’s requirements of a steward’s faithfulness (I Corinthians 4:1-2).
We believe all believers should be involved in the Great Commission as outlined in Matthew 28:18-20.
We believe in the imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ to take His Church to be with Him and to judge and rule the earth in righteousness.
WE LOVE THE LAND AND PEOPLE OF ISRAEL
We believe the Word of God (Psalm 122:6-9). We believe that all the promises of God concerning Israel will yet come to pass.
