As Christian ministers, associated together for fellowship and service in the International Fellowship of Ministries, we formulate the following declaration of things most surely believed among us, praying there will be no harmful or divisive differences among us and that we may keep the unity of the faith in love, to the which all men may see the example set before them and therefore preach Christ to the world as the only means of salvation from sin and its effects and thus glorify God. That we may all be of the same mind, same judgment, speaking the same things (1 Cor 1:10), building up Jesus Christ, the Chief Corner Stone, and the things taught in the Holy Scriptures concerning Him; edifying His people and giving Christian witness to the world.
In the One True God, who reveals Himself in three distinct persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Three being one and equal and eternally self existent as the Great “I AM”.
That Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son, born of a virgin, who ministered the love and the will of the Father, was, and is, very God and Creator of all things.
That He was crucified and died for all men, and then overcame death by resurrecting from the grave on the third day that man might have new life in Him.
That He ascended to the Father and is seated at the right-hand of the Father making intercession for us all, and, has sent forth His Holy Spirit to indwell and empower believers.
That you must be born-again, receiving Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior, in order to see the Kingdom of God. That the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
That this same Jesus is LORD of all.
That He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
That believers should be baptized with water.
That God has set in the Church the five-fold ministry gifts of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ. As believers we must not forsake the assembling of ourselves together.
That God is no respecter of persons, for, in Christ “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male or female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
That Church attendance, fellowship, and submission one to another, will play a important part in our service to this world.
That all the gifts of the Spirit are operable in the Church of Jesus Christ today. In unity of believers of all denominations in the fellowship of the “Church” in love and worship of Jesus Christ as LORD, in one accord.
That He will baptize believers with the Holy Ghost and fire. This is according to Acts Chapters One and Two, with the evidence of signs and wonders including speaking with other tongues. That the LORD Jesus Christ will soon return!
That as believers we have been given a universal commission to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel”
