The following are the core beliefs of REAL Ministry based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible.
All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
We believe the “Word of God” or the “Holy Scriptures” are infallible, inerrant and the sole and final authority for all matters of faith and conduct concerning the believer in Jesus Christ. (II Timothy 3:16; I Corinthians 2:13).
The Triune Godhead
We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as “One God” existing in Three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal and co-eternal, distinguishable but indivisible (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14).
Depravity of Man
We are assured of the creation, test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to Divine righteousness (Romans 5:12, 18).
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, fully God, and fully Man (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:14-18; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:6).
Death and Resurrection
We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared unto His disciples (I Corinthians 15:14; Romans 4:25).
The Second Coming
We believe Christ ascended in bodily form to heaven, “His Exaltation”, and will personally, literally and bodily come again the second time for His Church (John 14:2-3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
We also affirm the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain forgiveness of sins (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12, 22; Romans 5:11).
We confirm the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Eternal Godhead, which is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in order to fulfill the command of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:34-36; 19:1-6).
Baptism of Fire
We acknowledge the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a real experience at or subsequent to salvation, with the Scriptural evidence, namely but not exclusive to, speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-46; Galatians 3:14-15).
We believe in the operations of the Gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12:4-10 which manifested in the Early Church, the creation gifts of grace spoken of in Romans 12:6-8, and the ministry gifts appointed by Jesus Christ written of by the apostle Paul in Ephesians 4:11
We encourage the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as expressing the true Christian faith (Ephesians 5:18, II Corinthians 6:14; 7:1).
The Lord’s Supper and Foot Washing
We believe in the table of the Lord, commonly called, “Holy Communion” or “The Lord’s Supper”, and in the washing of the saints feet (I Corinthians 11:28-32; Matthew 26:26-28; John 13:4-14).
The Enemy and the Lake of Fire
We accept the reality and personality of the Devil and eternal judgment in the Lake of Fire for the Devil and his angels, (Matthew 5:41; Revelation 20:14-15).
We believe in eternal life for believers (John 5:24; 3:16) and eternal punishment for the unbelievers (Mark 9:43-8; II Thessalonians 1:9; Revelations 20:10-15).
The church is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer is an integral part of the church, and their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. (I Thess. 2:4).
We engage in the total worship of God. Singing and speaking praises to Him, the lifting of hands, kneeling, prostrations, clapping of hands, lifted heads, silence, etc., are involved in various expressions of worship in Spirit and in truth. Musical instruments are also involved in worship (Hebrews 4:15; 12:11; 13:15; I Timothy 2:8; Psalm 3:3; 19:14; 22:22-25; 28:2; 34:1; 42:5; Isaiah 45:23; Luke 11:21;22: 41: 24:50; John 11:41; 17:1).
We believe God created and ordained marriage. It is a covenant made between one man and one woman which makes them one flesh (Gen 2: 22,24; Matt 19: 5-6).
Prayer and Fasting
The portion of the body assembled together at REAL Ministry totally submit to the Lord Jesus Christ with prayer and fasting as instructed by the scriptures and by the leading of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 1:27; 7:5; II Corinthians 6:5).
We believe Christ ascended in bodily form to heaven, “His Exaltation”, and will personally, literally and bodily come again the second time for His Church.
(John 14:2-3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
