CHRISTIAN BELIEFS 5
 

THE CHRISTIAN
A true Christian is one who has repented of past sins, was baptized and in whom the Holy Spirit now dwells.
Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:13

THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY
The core of a stable society is the family and the marriage relationship is the basis of the family. Although men and womenís roles are clearly defined in the Bible, both have equal spiritual potential before God. The husband, wife and children form the family that is the primary physical analogy of Godís plan for mankind. Therefore, marriage, child rearing and the family are given a preeminent place in the teachings of the Bible and the church.
Exodus 20:12; Malachi 4:5-6; Ephesians 5:22-29; 6:1-3; I Peter 3:7

HEALING
Divine healing is a miracle and gift of God. He may bestow it in His mercy and love upon those who call upon those who fall upon him in time of need, but often, according to there faith. The healings of Jesus Christ described in the Bible depict and represent His power to express compassion, to forgive sin, and ultimately, to resurrect the dead and eventually to establish the Kingdom of God here on earth.
Matthew 9:1-7; James5:14-15

THE CHURCH OF GOD
The church is the spiritual body of Christ. Physically, it is a group of persons called out by God and impregnated with His Holy Spirit. As a spiritual body, the church is made up of baptized, Spirit-led people scattered all over the world.
I Corinthians 12:12-14, 27; Colossians 3:15
