“Every person has only one chance at life, only one shot to make life really count - don’t waste precious moments.”
- Bishop Thomas Williams
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This One God who rules the universe, who is infinite in power and Holy in nature. God has the absolute power and ability to become what He wants to be and yet remain what He is.
ABOUT JESUS CHIRST
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age, to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible, the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and are the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
Salvation is only found in Jesus Christ. The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God. The Return of Jesus Christ - The personal, pre-millennial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope and has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment. God created the human spirit and it will exist forever. The human spirit will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through the forgiveness of sin and the salvation of Jesus Christ. Heaven and Hell are realities of our eternal existence.
ABOUT THE CHURCH
The true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, has been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.
Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life. We beleive that water baptism by immersion should be administered in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only believers should share in it. The Lord's Supper is one of the great sacraments of the Church. Christ also commanded that we have communion (the Lord's Supper) regularly until His coming. In having communion we show forth His death and the purpose of His power.
MIGHTY FORTRESS CHURCH BELIEFS AND PRACTICES ARE THAT MARRIAGE CONSISTS OF A COVENANT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN. THE DYNAMICS OF MARRIAGE, SEXUALITY, AND THE EXPRESSION THEREOF ARE THE FOUNDATION AND CORNERSTONE OF SOCIETY AND LIFE. SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IS CONTRARY TO SCRIPTURE AND THE WILL OF GOD. THEREFORE, MIGHTY FORTRESS CHURCH DOES NOT PERFORM, PRACTICE OR PARTICIPATE IN SAME-SEX MARRIAGES OR CIVIL UNION CEREMONIES.
""Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion — it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ."”
