We believe in miracles. We believe in the supernatural – doing greater works than Jesus did as Jesus commanded us to do.
Jesus said greater works shall believers do because He has another calling in heaven, to sit at the right of God interceding for us.
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.”
All Nations Family Church, doing greater works, fulfilling the promise of Jesus Christ. Jesus fulfilled the prophets and the psalmist prophecies and believers today must fulfill the prophecies of Jesus Christ. We do not debate it or talk about it because of doctrinal beliefs. We just do it.
It is like an employer who went on vacation and left his employees some tasks, with a manual on how to carry out the tasks. Some employees starting debating how it should be done, some interpreting the manual in the original language, Greek, Hebrew, Kings English, New King James etc. eating chicken legs and wings day in and day out. The 1% doing the work are being criticized for their mistakes, for healing 8 out of 10, questioning why wasn’t all 10 healed. They have forgotten not everyone got healed when Jesus was here on earth, because of their unbelief.
HOW CAN WE DO THAT?
Jesus said you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you. It is going to be in the name of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Ghost.
Our core beliefs are based upon the foundational truths taught in God’s Word. All our teachings and ministries are rooted in and flow out of these Biblical doctrines.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, absolutely without error, and the only infallible rule of faith and conduct. God’s Word has power to change lives through the reading, meditation, study, anointed teaching and application of its truths (2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12).
God’s revelation of Himself in the Bible shows He exists as one God in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit (John 1:14, John 10:30, 2 Corinthians 3:17, Colossians 1:15-17).
The Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin; led a sinless life; bore our sins, sicknesses and afflictions through His death on the cross; was bodily resurrected from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the Father. This same Jesus will return again to earth (Luke 1:26-31, John 20:1-29, Romans 8:34, Hebrews 10:12, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17, 1 John 3:5).
Jesus came to preach the gospel, heal the brokenhearted and destroy the works of the devil. Before He ascended into heaven, Jesus gave the church the responsibility and His authority to complete this same task (Luke 4:14, Luke 4:43, Matthew 28:18-19).
THE HOLY SPIRIT
THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS BAPTISM
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. He is co-equal, co-eternal and co-existent with the Father and with the Son. His ministry upon the earth is to convict and covert man as well as be the great paraclete (comforter, counselor, helper, intercessor, advocate, strengthener and standby) to the Church. The baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus to all believers and is received subsequent to and in addition to the New Birth. The initial evidence of speaking with other tongues, as well as other manifestations described in Acts 2, accompanies this experience. Whereas there is one initial baptism, there are many subsequent infillings of the Spirit. The purpose of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is so that we, the believers, may have power to be witnesses. Matthew 3:11 John 14:16-17 Acts 1:8 Acts 2.
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
Luke 24:49 Acts 1:4 Acts 1:8 1 Corinthians 12:1-31. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. Acts 8:12-17 Acts 10:44-46 Acts 11:14-16 Acts 15:7-9 With the baptism in the Holy Spirit come such experiences as: an overflowing fullness of the Spirit, John 7:37-39, Acts 4:8 A deepened reverence for God, Acts 2:43, Hebrews 12:28. An intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work, Acts 2:42 and a more active love for Christ, for His Word and for the lost, Mark 16:20 .
All men are lost apart from the saving grace of Jesus Christ, and sin is cleansed and salvation is received only through personal repentance and faith in the atoning blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23, Romans 10:9-10, Titus 3:5-7).
The Church is intended to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. Every Christian is part of the priesthood of believers and has been called to actively advance God’s Kingdom by use of their spiritual gifts; this calling is not limited to ordained pastors and staff but every member of the church. One day each of us will be judged on how faithful we are in stewarding our opportunities & abilities (Matthew 5:14-16, 1 Corinthians 12:27, 1 Peter 2:9, 2 Corinthians 5:10).
Our faith is demonstrated in full devotion to Jesus Christ as Lord of every part of our lives. The supreme earmark of every Christ follower is faith expressing itself in love. True ministry and evangelism are built upon personal relationships, testifying and witnessing Christ to others who don’t know Him, other ways to lead others to Christ is by serving them through prayer, acts of kindness, sharing our testimony and inviting them to church or a small group (Romans 12:1, Galatians 5:6, 1 Peter 4:10).
Prayer is the key to success in doing anything for God. We can do nothing without His power, but with Him, nothing is impossible to those who believe and will pray (Mark 9:23, Mark 11:24, James 5:16).
The Biblical definition of marriage is a covenant between one man and one woman (Matthew 19:4-6).
