This We Believe
Delta Praise Center The Adventure Church, as an integrated part of the Body of Jesus Christ associate together for fellowship and service. We, therefore, formulate the following expression of things believed among us. In so doing, we pray there will be no harmful or derisive differences among us so that we may keep the unity of faith in love so that all will see the example we set before them. We preach Christ and His Kingdom unto the world as the only means of salvation from sin and its effects. Together we give all glory to God.
We conscientiously seek to be of the same mind and same judgment, speaking the same things in love. We build up the spiritual house of the body of Jesus Christ in the world today proclaiming Jesus as the Chief Corner Stone.*
Jesus Christ – Yeshua haMeshiach, is the Apostle and High Priest of our confession. God has watched over His Word and handed down to us the Holy Scriptures that we might judge and liberate the world as His Body to be the light unto the world according to His intentions.
*1 Corinthians 1:10, 1 Peter 2, Hebrews 3:1
… In the One God, who is Lord of all and who biblically reveals Himself in and as; the Father God, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe God has intentionally left this to be a beautiful paradox and an unknowable but wonderful mystery that shall remain until the fullness of His glory reveals all things. One God is the eternally self-existent having revealed Himself to Moses as the Great “I AM.” Thus, “Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” Deuteronomy 6:4-5
…That Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son, born of a virgin, who ministered the love and the will of the Father, was, and is, Savior for a lost and dying world.
…That He was crucified and died for all men, and then overcame death by resurrecting from the grave on the third day that man might have new life in Him.
…That He ascended to the Father and presented His Precious Blood, and is seated at the right-hand of the Father, therefore, becoming intercession for us all, and has sent forth His Holy Spirit to indwell and empower believers.
…That this same Jesus is LORD of all.
…That He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
…That you must be born-again (reborn from above) in order to see the Kingdom of God.
…That all believers should be baptized and baptize other believers with/in water.
…That He will baptize believers with the Holy Spirit and fire. The Holy Spirit baptism is according to Acts Chapters One and Two with the evidence of signs and wonders including speaking with other tongues.
…That all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are operable in the Church of Jesus Christ today.
…That the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
…That the LORD Jesus Christ – Messiah will soon come again!
…That God is no respecter of persons, for, in Christ “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”*
…That as believers, we have been given a universal commission to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel…”*
…That as believers, we must not forsake the assembling of ourselves together (and all the more in these last days). That covenant community of believers and our attendance, fellowship, and submission one to another will play a paramount part in our deliverance from this world.*
…That God has set in the body of Christ the five-fold ministry gifts of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds, and Teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ.*
Besides these tenets, we firmly believe that women have equal right to five-fold ministry and all forms of leadership in any ministry/government.
We are a people of a “new wine” experience and will remain so.
