House of Prayer – Statement of Belief

1.) We believe the bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God written.
II Timothy 3:16-17.

2.) We believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
Genesis 1:1

3.) We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Deut. 6:4, II Cor. 13:14

4.) We believe the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His sacrificial and atoning death for all through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father.
Isaiah 7:14, Phil. 2:5-11, Rom. 8:34, 1Jn. 2:2, 1 Tim. 2:4, John 3:16, 2 Peter 3:9.

5.) We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. We believe that the Father draws us, and we must respond by seeking Him with all of our hearts.
Romans 3:22-24, Eph 2:1-3, 12, Heb. 3:8 & 15, Matt. 6:33, Deut. 4:29, 2 Chron. 7:14, Matt 7:7, Amos 5:4, Jer. 29:13-14

6.) We must be careful not to resist the Holy Spirit.
Acts 7:51, Heb. 3:15

7.) We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin, and is available to anyone.
1 John 1:7-9, John 3:16

8.) We believe that if a Christian does not continue walking in God’s commands, they will end up walking in darkness. “Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going.”
John 12:35, 2 Peter 1:10, 2 Peter 3:17, John 12:35, 1 Cor. 10:12, Matt 10:22, Heb. 3:6 & 14, Gal. 6:7-9

9.) We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, and also believe that all of the gifts are existing today; We also believe that the Bible gives explicit instructions regarding the implementation of these gifts in His services.
1 Cor. 12:4-11, 1 Cor. 14:27, 28, 33, 40.

10.) We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ.
Ephesians 4:3.
