WHAT WE BELIEVE
Sanctuary of Praise is a bible believing, Christ-centered, apostolic congregation founded upon the infallible word of God. We believe the Bible is the ultimate authority concerning salvation and instructions for Christian living.
As such, we believe and teach the Apostles doctrine, which we strive to deliver with love, grace, mercy, and compassion.
We believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ through the death, burial, and resurrection of our Savior. We appropriate that gospel through obedience to the Bible standard of full salvation:
Believing on the Lord through repentance (our death to sin - Calvary)
Baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (our watery grave of cleansing and burial of the old man of sin - tomb)
Receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (our spiritual resurrection by the Spirit of God - resurrection) This can be found in Acts 2:38
We believe the Bible teaches that there is only one true, ever living, eternal God. The one true God has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16)
We believe in divine healing and the second coming of the Lord Jesus. We believe the church today is still as powerful as when it first began in Acts chapter two.
This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
