We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Author and Creator of all things.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Second person in the Godhead of the Trinity or Triune Godhead. We believe that Jesus was and is eternal in his person and nature as the Son of God who was with God in the beginning of creation [St. Matthew 1:18].
THE HOLY GHOST
We believe the Holy Ghost is the third person of the Trinity, proceeds from the Father and the Son, is of the same substance, equal to power and glory, and is together with the Father and the Son, to be beleieved in. obeyed and worshipped.
THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST
We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Ghost ia an experience subsequent to conversion and sanctification and that tongue-speaking is the consequence of the baptism in the Holy Ghost with the manifestions of the fruit of the spirit [Galatians 5:22-23, Acts 10:46, 19:1-4].
Salvation deals with the application of the work of redemption to the sinner with his restoration to divine favor and communion with God.
The Church forms a spiritual unity of with Christ is the divine head. It is animated by one Spirit, the Spirit of Christ. It professes one faith, shares one hope and serves on King.
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We belief in the second coming of Christ, that shall come from heaven to earth, personally, bodily, visibly [Acts 1:11, Titus 2:11-13, St. Matthew 16-27, Luke 21-27, John 1:14-17, Titus 2:11] and that the Church, the bride will be caught up to meet Him in the air [I Thessalosians, 4:16-17]. We admonish all who have this hope to purify themselves as He is pure.
Covenant Restoring Ministries believes in and practices Divine Healing. It is a commandment of Jesus to the Apostles [St. Mark 16:18].
Covenant Restoring Ministries believes that miracles occur to convince men that the Bible is God's Word.
THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH
It is generally admitted that for an cordinance to be valid, it must have been instituted by Christ. When we speak of ordinances of the church, we are speaking of those instituted by Christ, in which by sensible signs the grace of God in Christ, and the benefits of the covenant of grace are represented, sealed and applied to believers, and these in turn give expression to their faith and allegiance to God. Covenant Restoring Ministries recognizes three ordinances as having been instituted by Christ himself and therefore, binding upon the church practice.
- The Lord's Supper symbolizes the Lord's death and suffering for the benefit and in the place of His people, It also symbolizes the believer's participation in the crucified Christ. It represents no only the death of Christ as the object of faith hich unites the believers to Christ, but also the effect of this act as the giving of life, strength, and joy to the soul. The communicant by faith enters into a special spiritual union of his soul with the glorified Christ.
A. THE LORD'S SUPPER (HOLY COMMUNION)
- Feet washing is practiced and recognized a an ordinance in our Church because Christ, by His example showed that humility characterized greatness in the Kingdom of God.
B. FEET WASHING
We believe that Water Baptism is necessary as instructed by Ghrist in [St. John 3.5], "UNLESS MAN BE BORN AGAIN OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT."
However, we do not believe that water baptism alone is a means of salvation, but is an outward demonstration that one has already had a coversion experience and as accepted Christ as his personal Savor.
