WELCOME TO GRACE BAPTIST MISSION GHANA
ARTICLES OF FAITH
By Pastor Noah Quarshie
In the verbal and plenary inspiration of the original manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments, which constitute the inerrant Word of God. The supreme and final authority for faith and life.
In the triune God: One God eternally existing in the three equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In the deity, virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection and imminent, pre-tribulation and pre-millennial coming of Christ.
In the personality of the Holy Spirit by whom believers are called, regenerated, baptized into Christ, indwelt, sealed and filled for service. I do not believe that speaking in tongues is indispensable evidence of the filling of the Holy Spirit.
In the direct creation of the Universe and man by God apart from any process of evolution.
In the fall, total depravity and guilt of the human race in Adam which for manís salvation necessitated the sovereign, divinely initiated deliverance of the sinner by the grace of God in Christ.
In the eternal salvation of all individuals who put their faith in Christ, whose blood was shed for the remission of sins.
In the unity of all true believers in the church which is the Body of Christ of which he is the sole head.
In the local church as a company of baptized believers, independent and self-governing, which should fellowship with other churches of like faith and order. It is the responsibility of the local church to observe the ordinances of baptism and the Lordís supper, edify the believers and evangelize the World. I believe that the only biblical mode of believerís baptism is immersion, and that it is to be administered in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The ordinance of baptism is for believers only and it is a pre-requisite for church membership. The officers of the New Testament are Pastors/Elders and Deacons.
In the priesthood of all believers and the right of every individual to have direct dealings with God, I believe in individual soul liberty.
In the obedience to the biblical command to separate from worldliness and ecclesiastical apostasy unto God.
In the separation of church and state with each believer having responsibility to both.
In the personal existence of angels, Satan and demons.
In the bodily resurrection, immortality and pre-tribulation rapture of all believers at Christís imminent coming.
In the bodily resurrection and judgment of unbelievers after the millennial reign of Christ.
In the eternal life and blessedness of all believers in heaven and the eternal punishment of all unbelievers in the lake of fire.
