Baptism in Water – by Ps John Iuliano

WE BELIEVE that baptism, by single immersion, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, is enjoined upon all who have repented and have believed in Christ as Saviour and Lord, and that it is symbolic of our identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection – Matt. 28:19,20; Acts. 10:47,28; 2:38,39; Rom. 6:4,5; Col. 2:12; Mark 16:16.

Introduction

An ordinance is an outward sign of an inward work. The word ordinance literally means “something commanded and enforced by the proper authority”.

The Holy Scriptures

WE BELIEVE in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, namely the Old and the New Testaments in their original writings. All scriptures is given by inspiration of God and is infallible, inerrantly revealing the will of God, concerning us all, in all things necessary to our salvation, and is absolutely supreme and sufficient authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

inspired in totality.

HARVEST

John 4: 35: ‘Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for
harvest!”

LIFTING UP THE NAME OF JESUS

John 12: 32 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”


OUR MANDATE FROM JESUS CHRIST

1.

True and False Apostles

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother. (1:1)

Paul is writing with tremendous spiritual authority. He is writing as an ‘apostle’, literally, ‘a sent one’ of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ actually sent Paul out by divine revelation. Paul has learned to know the voice of the Lord, and the Lord has entrusted Paul with a lot of responsibilty. Paul is not an apostle because he wanted to be, but because God chose him to be. It was the will of God.

Books and References on Spiritual Warfare

Not everything relevant to the subject of deliverance and spiritual warfare is included on a site such as this. In my view some deliverance ministries are unbalanced and make extreme statements which are not totally true. The truth is extreme enough anyway without making universal statements with no clear foundation in Scripture. Anyway, here are the titles of some books and authors I can recommend on the subject of deliverance.

1. Christian, Set Yourself Free – by Graham Powell.

Unbelief in Believers

Once the disciples of Jesus failed to cast a demon out of a boy. I wonder what we would have concluded about it. Jesus told his disciples plainly that the reason for their failure to cast the demon out of the epileptic boy was their unbelief, due to their lack of prayer and fasting. (Matthew 17:20)

Today many Christians are offended at any teaching which implies that they may have unbelief. But Jesus was constantly rebuking his disciples for their unbelief, and “little faith”.

If you can get free of unbelief, you will be of all Christians, most fruitful, and most pleasing to the Lord.

Satanic Tactics

“… for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (2 Corinthians 2:11)

Paul and his close co-workers made it their business not to be ignorant of Satan’s devices. This does not mean that Paul spent a lot of time researching all the dark secrets of Satan’s kingdom. No. Paul said to the Romans, “I want you to be wise in what is good, but simple (innocent) concerning evil. And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly” (Romans 16:19). Honestly, we don’t need to be “au fait” with all the latest conspiracy theories and what Satan may or may not be doing (Isaiah 8:12,13).

Blessings and Curses

What is a blessing?

A blessing is a positive declaration over someone or something. When God blesses a person, He declares good concerning them which will surely come to pass. God is a great King, and as the Scripture says, “Where the word of a king is, there is power, and who can say to him, ‘What are you doing?’ “. Our ultimate concern should be to please and glorify God. He certainly deserves it. However, in truly doing this, we will attract God’s blessings and we will attract God’s favor. A good example in the Bible of someone who attracted God’s favor was David.

Keys to Overcoming Sin

A major part of spiritual warfare is resisting the devil’s enticement’s to compromise on God’s principles. We give the powers of darkness a definite advantage when we do anything that actually compromises the intimacy of our fellowship with God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit. Worldliness is anything attitude or occupation that makes your heart just a little colder towards the Lord.
