The Apostles' Doctrine
We stand for the faith which was built upon the holy precepts, practices, and doctrines, all of which are infallible. We believe that The Greater Full Gospel Church of God in Jesus Christ is a direct descendant of the original orthodox church that began on the day of Pentecost.
“And they continued steadfastly in the Apostles’ doctrine and fellowship,
and in breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42)
We believe that there is one true plan of salvation according to the word of God. We believe that all souls must be spiritually born again according to St. John 3:1-9. An individual must come to a mind of repentance and ask for forgiveness of their sins. We believe that after an individual has repented of their sins they must be baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. After repentance and baptism has been completed the believer must patiently tarry (wait) for God to fill them with the gift of the Holy Ghost; with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the spirit of God gives them the utterance. We believe that once a believer must live a holy lifestyle according to 1 Peter 1:16. This holy lifestyle is a continual process.
St. Mark 16:15-17; Acts 1:8; 9:17-18; Acts 10:44, 48; Acts 19:1-6
Romans 12:1-2; Hebrews 12:14; St. Matthew 5:48; and I Peter 1:15-16
We firmly hold that Jesus Christ is God Almighty and apart from Him there is no God. We believe that there is one Lord, One Faith, and one Baptism. We proclaim that Jesus is the name of God that was given to this generation as the ONLY Name whereby the people of this dispensation of time can be saved.
Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 45:15-21; St. Matthew 1:23; Genesis 1:1;
Colossians 1:14-17; Colossians 2:9; Titus 2:13; Deuteronomy 32:4;
I Corinthians 10:4; I John 5:20; and Revelation 1:8
Everyone is welcomed to come to our church “as they are.” As believers you will see manifested our belief in how the saints of God should dress. We believe that all believers are commanded to dress as becoming Godliness and that we are to be an example of modesty. We believe that women should always have their heads covered. We are in the Army of the Lord and believe we should be uniformed in our commitment to represent holiness both inwardly and outwardly.
1 Corinthians 11:4; 1 Corinthians 11:5, 1 Thessalonians 5:17;
Deuteronomy 22:5 ; 1 John 2:15-17; Leviticus 10:10;
Revelations 3:18; 1 Timothy 2:9; Romans 12:1
“Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy” (Leviticus 19:2). There is no other way mentioned in the scriptures. If Almighty God is Holy, then we, the children of the Heavenly Father, are to be holy as He is holy. The Bible says, “According as He (God) hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love” (Ephesians 1:4). Sin is not justified in any form, but rather it is total disobedience unto God. Holiness is surrendering your will to God’s will, submission and self-denial in everything that is against God’s will.
II Corinthians 7:1, “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” Ephesians 4:24, “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and TRUE HOLINESS.” Hebrews 12:14, “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” I Peter 1:16, “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
Resurrection of the Saints
Revelation 20:6; St. Matthew 24:36-42;
St. Luke 17:20-21; I Thessalonians 4:13-17
When the thousand years are finished, there shall be a resurrection of the wicked dead, who shall be survived before God’s Throne for their final judgment. All whose names are not found written in the Book of Life, shall be cast into the lake of fire, burning with brimstone, which is the second death that God hath prepared for the devil and his angels and the wicked who serve him.
Revelation 20:7-15; St. Matthew 25:41-46;
