We here at Praise Ministries Church,

believe the following:

 

The Inspired Scriptures

That the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.

 

God In Three Persons

We believe the one true God has revealed himself as being the eternally self-existent Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed himself as a Trinity, that is, one being existing in three Persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the only eternal begotten Son of the living God, and the only ransom of sinners, as revealed in the Scripture, by His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead and His position at the right hand of God our Father.

The Creation and Fall of Man

We believe that man was created good and upright. However, man willfully sinned and thereby was subjected not only to physical death but also to spiritual death, which is separation from God.

Salvation

We believe man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Ordinances

Water baptism: We believe the ordinance of baptism by immersion in water is commanded of all who repent and believe on Christ as Savior. It represents having died with Christ and being raised with Him to walk in newness of life.

 

Communion

We believe the Lord's Supper is a memorial of Christ's suffering and death and a prophecy of His second coming. It is commanded of all believers "until he comes."

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

We believe all Christians are entitled to and should seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues according to Acts 2:4. This experience gives a Christian power to witness by his/her life and words.
