Basic Beliefs by David Roman
GOD IN ONLY INTERESTED IN ONE RACE....THE HUMAN RACE
"There are no Great ones among us but the Lord Jesus Christ"
The Bible is about God’s LOVE.
God created man with a Freewill to choose.
I THESSALONIANS 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God’s plan of redemption has unfolded throughout the Old Testament as God identified His attributes of Saviour, Healer, Provider, Deliverer, etc.
God’s will is for man to serve Him in love by freewill, and to live a life above sinful desires..
When we are Born Again,Our SOUL is Born Again, however, our Body and Spirit are not Born Again and are still subject to the World, to temptation, age, etc, as well as Spiritual warfare till we get a Body Change at the First Resurrection..
We therefore feed on God's Word for direction and strength in this present evil World
We faithfully attend a local Church for our Spiritual Growth and fellowship with other Bible Believers.
JOHN 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
JOHN 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
LAW OR GRACE?.
Adam and Eve reigned over the earth in the Garden of Eden and were given a choice, the Tree of Life or Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil?.
The Law of LIFE or Law of Sin and Death?.
Satan beguiled Eve and she partook of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and gave to Adam as well.
Adam was not deceived, but in a type of Christ he took on Eve's sin to redeem her.
Thus God's plan of redemption began to unfold.
GENESIS 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the TREE OF LIFE, and eat, and LIVE FOR EVER: .
GENESIS 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
GENESIS 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to KEEP THE WAY OF THE TREE OF LIFE.
AFTER THE FALL the Law of Moses ADDED because of Transgression till the SEED should come (The Lord Jesus Christ).
ROMANS 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit .
ROMANS 8:2 For the law of the SPIRIT OF LIFE in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the LAW OF SIN AND DEATH .
GALATIANS 3:16 Now to Abraham and his SEED were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of MANY; but as of ONE, And to thy SEED, which is Christ.
GALATIANS 3:17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
GALATIANS 3:18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but GOD GAVE IT TO ABRAHAM BY PROMISE.
GALATIANS 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was ADDED because of transgressions, till the SEED should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
JOHN 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
1. The BIBLE is God’s infallible Word. 66 books, nothing to be added or taken away.
