We truly believe…
Final Authority for Matters of Belief and Conduct
The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Our Report Ministries & Publications’ faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our [ministers/executive committee/board of directors] is Our Report Ministries & Publications’ final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Ps 139.)
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.
There is only one God, eternally existent in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule for ever.
In the bless hope of the eternal state of man, of the Church at Christ’s coming.
The only means of being cleansed from sin (of flesh, or against the body, the eye and the pride of life) is through repentance and faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
The redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross provides restoration for man by Faith.
The baptism with the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to those who desires to be adopted into the Body of Christ.
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Holy life.
In the resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
God made man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. God blessed them and said unto them be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth Genesis 1:26:28.
Because God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between a man, a woman, and Himself, [the Church] will only recognize marriages between a biological man and a biological woman. Further, the pastors/ministers/clergy and staff of Our Report Ministries & Publications shall only participate in weddings and solemnize marriages between one man and one woman. Finally, the facilities and property of Our Report Ministries & Publications shall only host weddings between one man and one woman.
