The doctrine of Salvation forms the core of our Christian faith by proclaiming God’s victory over sin in our lives. This truth results in deliverances, healings and restored lives. Contrary to what the world teaches, multiple paths to heaven do not exist. There is only one way to achieve entrance, to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. (John 3:3,16,17)
No greater healer has ever walked the earth than Jesus Christ. And the wonderful news is that He still heals today. Wherever Jesus went, He ministered with compassion and healed the sick. Christ’s example showed an interconnection with salvation, as many believed following their healing. Our Lord continues to heal today and it is vital that the church preach, teach and practice this biblical truth. Scriptures command believers to pray in faith and trust God for the outcome. (Isa. 53:4,5; Matt. 8:14-17; James 5:14-16)
When Jesus left the earth, He said He would send a helper—the Holy Spirit, and He did. Jesus promised His followers they would receive power from on high so that they would be His witnesses. The Holy Spirit empowered 120 people with fire and languages they did not know. They received power and boldness to witness. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 2:4; 8:12-17; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9; 1 Cor. 12:1-31)
All Christians, dead or alive, will one day be called up to meet the Lord in the air. We refer to this as the doctrine of Christ's Second Coming or "The Rapture." Only the Father knows the day and the hour His Son will return, so we must be on the watch as He may return at any moment. This time He won't come as a baby, but as the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
