Fundamental Beliefs of God and Moriel Ministries

God

We hold to the God of Israel as the One true God; a Triune God in Three persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He alone is to be worshiped as prescribed in Scripture.

Scripture

We believe in the doctrinal infallibility of the original manuscripts of the Old and New testaments in the original languages and in the historicity of these scriptures. We believe in the complete Bible constituting the supreme authority for our faith and ministry We accept the Bible as the only basis of true doctrine.

Salvation

We believe that man is fallen and so is creation. It is impossible for man to justify himself before a perfect God. We believe in salvation through the New Birth experience by repentance and faith in Jesus alone as the only provision for man's sin. We hold that Jesus took our sin and gave us His righteousness and that we must personally accept Him and remain faithful to Him on the basis of Scripture. Those who reject Jesus will face eternal perdition.

Baptism in Water

We hold to the believer being baptized in water by immersion.

Gifts of the Spirit

We believe that the gifts of the Spirit, including charismatic gifts, continue to operate in the church. However, we reject any form of charismatic or Pentecostal extremism, and reject totally any form of traditional-based or experiential theology.

Israel, Gentiles and God's Plan.

We accept that Gentiles who truly accept Jesus replace Jews who reject Him. However, these are incorporated into Israel in a spiritual sense (on the basis of Romans 2), rather than the church replacing Israel - a teaching which we hold to be in error. We believe God's prophetic plan for the salvation of the world is bound up with His prophetic plan for the regathering and for the salvation of Israel. We hold to a pre-millennium return of Christ at which time He will establish His millennium Kingdom on the earth

 

Unity

We yearn for the unity of the Spirit, such unity seen as with other Bible-based evangelical Christians, churches and ministries - even where we may not share all the same nonessential doctrines. However, we reject as a false unity, ecumenism or unity in any form with nonevangelical versions of Christianity that has a different doctrine of salvation and a basis of doctrinal authority other than the Bible.
