What we Believe

Statement of Faith – Elijah Ministries

THE BIBLE

We believe that Bible is Inspired word of God

2Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

2Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

We believe that Bible is the final Authority to Man and he is to live by it

Deut 8:6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.

Deut 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live. (See Also 2Tim 3:16 above )

GOD

We believe in One Eternal God Creator of the universe and source of life, consisting of three Persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost.

Deut 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

Mark 1:10 – 11 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (Jesus, the Son; is the word. See John 1)

We believe that No Man can understand anything of God for He is incomparable to anything. Except, only what God have revealed to Men in His Holy Word. All other Men’s doctrines and inversions about God are false.

Isa 40:18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?

JESUS

We believe that Jesus is Christ, begotten Son of God

(Matt 8:28-29, Mark1:1, Mark3:11, Luke1:31-35, Luke22:66-71)

We believe that Jesus was conceived of the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary. We believe that Jesus lived perfect sinless life, working miracles, as recorded in scriptures. And that He died atoning death at the cross, for the sin of the whole world. We believe in His burial, and His bodily resurrection in the third day according to scriptures. We believe His ascension to heaven and His intercession for his church work in heaven right now. We believe His pre-Millennial return here on earth to establish His messianic Kingdom.

We believe in Deity of Jesus; God the Son, exact Image of God. That He created all things and He is God Almighty. (Isa 9:6, John 8:58, John 16:30, Col 1:13-20, John1, Rev 1:8, Rev 1:17-18 )

Act 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Col 1:16-18 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Tit 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

We believe that Jesus is the Only way to God, and Only Mediator between Man and God

1Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

MAN

We believe that Man was made in God’s Image and was perfect. (Gen 1:26-28)

We believe that Man, through disobedience to God (Sin), was separated from His creator forever and was cursed. He also became slave of the devil.

So we believe all men are sinners and hence need for savior

(See Gen 3, Rom 3:23, Rom 6:23)

HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE

We believe that Hell is really. That it is a place for torment for all who rejected God’s gift of salvation. We believe that Lake of fire is real place, final and eternal destiny for those who rejected God’s Gift of salvation. And that, it is a place of eternal tormnent.

(Matt 5:22, Matt 10:28, 2Pet 2:4, Rev19:20, Rev 20:10, 14, 15)

SALVATION

We believe in salvation is through Faith in the atonement sacrifice of Jesus Christ at the cross. We do not believe any other form of Man’s salvation apart from faith in Jesus Christ.

(Eph 2:8-9, Rom 3:20-22, 28 Rom 5:9, Gal 2:16, Gal 3:11, Act 4:10-12)

THE CHURCH

We believe that the church is Body of Christ consisting of believers that have confessed their sins and accepted God’s gift of salvation.

We believe that the church is Kingdom Nation and that King have final say. We believe that King Jesus, the head of the church have final say on all matters of the church. We do not believe any kind of democracy or humanity in the body of Christ.

(1Pet2:9, 1Tim6:14-15, Rev 1:6)

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the works of the Holy Spirit as clearly stated in scriptures

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues and the working of the spiritual Gifts and fruits of the spirit as clearly shown in scriptures, are active today for the building of body of Jesus Christ. We believe that miracles still happen today for Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow!

We believe five ministries of Jesus; Teachers, Evangelists, Prophets, Apostles, and Pastors are still Active today

SATAN

We believe in existence of personal satan and his demons, according to scriptures, and not simply active evil force, impersonal devil. We believe that He was cast out of heaven with third part of angels, now known as demons (or devils). We believe that he is a liar, thief and destroyer; and so are his demons, and that he is author of sin and murderer.

DIVINE HEALING AND DELIVERANCE

We believe Jesus still heals today for He is the same all times and changes not.

(Heb 13:8)

We believe that Christian can have a demon and that deliverance is for believers only (Luke 13:16, Gal 3:6-9, Matt 15:20-27)

We believe that only believers in Jesus can cast out demons. Again this is done only in the Name of Jesus. We believe that Only believers in Jesus have authority to use this name
