Beliefs

What we believe sets the tone and context of a ministry.  To be clear and open about the beliefs that Ebenezer International Ministries holds, we have listed our core beliefs below.

  1. Person of Jesus Christ
    We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. His deity and sinless life. His vicarious death, His bodily resurrection, and in His personal premillenial return.
  2. The Doctrine of Heaven and Hell
    We believe in the eternal blessedness of the saved in Heaven and the eternal punishment of the lost in a literal place called Hell.
  3. The Doctrine of the Church
    We believe that the visible church is a congregation of baptized believers, practicing New Testament principles, believing its doctrine, observing its ordinances, and exercising its autonomy.
  4. The Freeness of Salvation
    We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free by the Gospel to all who repent of their sins and accept Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner but his or her own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the Gospel.
  5. The inspiration of the Bible
    We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and its revelation is complete.
  6. The Person of God
    We believe God is supreme in His person, eternal in His being, absolute in His attributes, glorious in His perfection.  We believe in the Trinity.
  7. The Person of the Holy Spirit
    We believe the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Godhead. We believe that He executes the plan of God for our conviction and salvation. From the time of conversion, the Holy Spirit resides in the body of the believer and empowers him/her for His service.
  8. The Salvation of Sinners
    We believe that man was created in the image of God and by choice fell into sin and death. Hence, every person is sinful and under condemnation to eternal judgment.
  9. The Salvation of Sinners
    We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace, and that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation.
  10. The Security of the Believer
    We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ as their Savior are eternally secure. Our security rests on the finished work of Jesus Christ. As a result, we have assurance.
