The True Gospel

December 8, 2012

A true preacher of the Lord Jesus Christ will believe and teach the following main truths. Not one of these can be neglected, or the minister can not be trusted.

1). The Bible must be believed – to be the only infallible Word of God and must be taught as truth. If it is taught as only partial truth and is not totally relied on as a whole, this teacher is a minister of unrighteousness and can not be trusted. (1 Timothy 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21)

2). Belief in the Trinity – God is present in three distinct persons; God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit. (1 John 5:7).

3). Jesus must be worshiped and honored as both the Son of God and God. God alone is to be worshipped. Since Jesus is God, He is to be worshipped. Nothing else but God must ever be worshipped. (Phil 2:6-11; Luke 24:52)

4). The Doctrine of Jesus Christ: (all of the following must be believed)
a). Jesus Christ is God who became a man. (John 1:14)
b). His virgin birth. (Matthew 1:20-23; Luke 1:30-38)
c). His substitutionary death through the shedding of His precious blood on the Cross of Calvary. (Ephesians 1:7)
d). His bodily resurrection from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
e). Jesus ascension to heaven(Acts 1:9; Luke 24:51) and that He is now seated at the right hand of God the Father. (Hebrews 1:3).
f). His present ministry as High Priest and Advocate. (1 John 2:1)
g). His personal return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.(Revelation 19:16)
h). He is head of the church and the Lord of all creation. (Colossians 1:16-18)

5). Jesus Christ must be taught as the only way of salvation to obtain eternal life. A person must accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior by faith. Nothing man can do will save them, (no works, confessions, special duties). Only by trusting in the blood that Jesus shed on the cross one can be saved. (Romans 3:25; John 14:6; 1 Timothy 2:5-6)
