Statement of Faith

All Scripture (both Old and New Testaments), as initially written, complete, and Inspired Word of God. There is one God, ceaselessly existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God shaped man in His image. Man, of his harmony, chose to transgress the will and command of God, thereby separating himself from God.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He became a man without ceasing to be God so that He might disclose God and redeem sinful men. The Lord Jesus Christ died as "the only possible sacrifice" for the entire world so those who believe in His shed blood might have eternal life.

Salvation is obtained through faith in Christ alone. Not through any amount of good works or deeds.

Baptism, by complete immersion, is a sign to the world of one's belief but is not done as a requirement for salvation.

All of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are here today within the context of the power of God resides within his people -- used for witnessing and service without drawing attention to ourselves.

We are here to pray daily, study the Word often, and fellowship with the church regularly. We are to love others, be humble, and obey God.

The Body is the temple in which the Holy Spirit dwells. The time is close at hand when Christ will come for the church, the entire body of believers both living and dead. The return of Christ will happen before the date of the Tribulation.

At the judgment, believers, the family of God will receive their reward. Those unsaved will be cast out, into everlasting punishment.

Raining Faith Ministry and Forest Bible Institute are opposed to the Anti-Christ concept of a one-world government and a one-world church. We never have, nor will we be a part of the World Council of Churches, National Council of Christian Churches, or any other apostate ecumenical movements -- nor any One World Order actions.
