Tenets of Faith

Built on the Word of God and the Holy Spirit

Built on the Word of God and the Holy Spirit

 

Teaching at Fellowship International Bible Institute and Seminary Inc. is based on the great fundamentals of the Christian faith, all of which center in the person of Jesus Christ, our crucified, risen, and glorified Savior and Lord. The following, together with other Christian principles of doctrine and practice, including the affirmation of the full trustworthiness of Scripture, which in its original writing was verbally inspired and without error, shall be the basis of the faith and doctrine of the  Fellowship  International Bible Institute and Seminary Inc.

1.     The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the written record of His supernatural revelation of Himself to man, absolute in its authority, complete in its revelation, final in its content, and without any errors in its teachings.

   2.     All men in their natural state are lost, alienated from God, spiritually dead: “All have sinned, and fall short  of  the  glory  of God” (Rom. 3:23)

3.       Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of God, through faith in the Lord Jesus, who died for our sins according  to the Scriptures (1 Cor. 15:3). Those who thus receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven (Eph. 1:7), their  hearts cleansed (Acts 15:9), are born of the Spirit, become children  of God (Jn. 1:12, 13),and are made new creatures in Christ (II Cor. 5:17).

4.       God is One God, Who reveals Himself in three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. JesusChrist, as the  Scriptures   affirm,  is the Son of God and Son of man. He was born of a virgin and is Himself very God. The Scriptures also declare the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.

5.      Our Lord Jesus rose from the dead in the same, but Glorified body that was laid to rest in the tomb (Jn. 20:25-27).  The bodies of all believers who die will be raised from the dead, and they will receive  an incorruptible body like   unto   His glorious body (I Cor. 15:53; Phil. 3:21). All other men shall  be raised unto “the resurrection of judgment” (Jn. 5:28,29)

6.     Christians, born of the Spirit, are to live the new life in the present power of  the Spirit. “If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also walk” (Gal. 5:16-25; Col. 2:6). The Christian’s responsibility and his normal  attitude of  life is to yield himself to God (Rom. 6:13), trusting God to keep him.

7.    Christian “living” includes Christian service, the winning of souls around us, and the preaching of  the Gospel  in the  uttermost parts of the earth. In carrying on this work there is needed the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit which is granted to every believer as he yields and trusts (Acts 1:8; I Cor. 12:7; Eph. 3:20; Acts 5:32). And in all of  this service, prayer is to have the central place (Jn. 14:12-14; Eph. 6:18, 19).

8     Jesus Christ will come again to earth the second time (Heb. 9:28), personally  (Acts 1:11;                 I Thess. 4:16), bodily (Acts 1:11; Col. 2:9), and visibly (Matt. 26:64; Rev. 1:7). His coming will precede the age of universal peace and righteousness foretold in the Scriptures(Matt. 24:29, 30, 42; II Thess. 2:7, 8; Rev.20:1-6).
