In this document, we would like to introduce the true doctrine of believing Christians by the Word of God, and to express the main principles of our faith according to the righteousness of our God. This is the foundation for the house of God where Jesus Christ, His Teaching, is the cornerstone. (Ephesians 2:19-22). On this foundation, out of living stones, God is building Himself a House, and no other foundation can be laid. In this precious faith according to our God differing opinions and different interpretations on these basic questions are unacceptable. Because having been born of the One True Word, all the children of God are in complete unity of faith.
2 Timothy 1:13: “Hold on to the pattern of sound doctrine that you have heard from me, with faith and love in Christ Jesus.”
And so, we are Christians.
We believe: In one triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe: In Jesus Christ we have the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe: God sent His only begotten Son as the Savior to the world, to save from the power of darkness, that is, from the law of sin and death.
We believe: In Jesus Christ we have the manifestation of God in the flesh, according to the Holy Scriptures.
We believe: Jesus Christ brought Himself by the Holy Spirit as a sacrifice to God for the atonement of sins and the deliverance from sin by death of the old man according to Adam, and by the resurrection of a new man, whose life is Christ.
We believe: In being born again, when the Spirit of Jesus Christ is instilled into our human spirit through faith and repentance, which is the realization that outside of God a person is a sinner and is in death! Being born again is the process of believing in the gospel: repentance, death and resurrection with Christ. The testimony and seal of this faith is baptism in the water.
We believe: In the baptism of the Holy Spirit with all accompanying signs, powers, gifts and miracles.
We believe: In the second coming of Jesus Christ; before His coming we commemorate His suffering in the flesh through the breaking of bread and drinking of wine.
We believe: In eternal life in the Kingdom of God, which already becomes evident here on earth – through Christ in us.
We believe: This universe, the earth and all deeds on it will burn up. There will be a new heaven and a new earth in which righteousness dwells, and we will dwell with God in new bodies.
We believe: In the Holy Scriptures, the books of the Old and New Testaments, which are the complete doctrine of Christians.
And so, our faith is based on the fact that the problem of sin, the law, and the flesh was solved once and for all on Calvary. Having died with Christ on the cross and resurrected with Him, we pass from this world into the Kingdom of the living God, while this world is full of evil and is determined to be burned by fire. We are the Church of the Lord, which is being built in the Heavenly Kingdom, into which we have entered by faith, and therefore we have become not of this world, just as Christ is not of this world.
Scripture teaches: “Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed … for he who has died was freed from sin” (Romans 6: 6-7).
And so, I was baptized into the death of Jesus Christ. What does this mean?
This means that it is essential to believe that Christ was crucified on the cross, and being in Him – I was crucified with Him! Christ was buried, and I being in Him – I was buried with Him! Jesus Christ rose from the grave according to the Spirit, no longer according to the flesh; and I, together with Him, being in Him, rose from the dead by His power. Having accepted by faith everything that happened at Calvary I died, was buried according to the flesh, and therefore, I no longer exist according to the old Adam. I was raised from the dead as a new creature by the Spirit, life henceforth became Jesus Christ!
This is the precious faith according to the righteousness of our God: I died for sin, for the law, for life according to the flesh, that is, I died for this world. I was resurrected a new creature in Christ by the Spirit, by the power of God!
And so, it is vital to believe this way, to confess this way, to proclaim that Christ is my life (that there is no other life, to recognize no other life!) And to manifest Christ with a good conscience, with honest faith (faith unfeigned) and love from a pure heart!
