What We Believe
   
  1. God:
    There is only one God. We believe that all that was, is, and to come are of, from and by only one God, who is alive and not a statue, with existence in the trinity (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) in one single supreme being. This trinity all appeared at the same time in the baptism of Jesus in Matthew 3:13-17: The voice from Heaven as the Father, Jesus Christ coming out of the water as the Son, and Spirit of God descending like a dove as the Holy Spirit. Though God created the seasons, He never changes: He is therefore the same yesterday, today, and forever.

  2. Bible:
    We believe the entirety of the Bible. The Bible in its entirety is strictly the word of God. God breathed out the contents of the scriptures to humans who reproduced it without deviation from the direction of God. To ensure authenticity, God passed this message across several generations, gender, and people from various works of life.

  3. Creation:
    All of creation was done entirely, with a purpose, and solely by God, as detailed in the book of Genesis.

  4. Man:
    Was made after the image of God (in His very likeness). Therefore, God is not a statue. Following the creation of man, God placed them in the garden of Eden, and gave them all but two (knowledge and life) of the contents of the beautiful garden. But man fell by partaking in one (knowledge) of the two contents for which he was instructed not to partake. This sin created a distance between God and man (God’s most beloved creation), and led to man being banished from Eden, the garden of perfection. Genesis 3.

  5. Protoevangelium:
    Following the fall of man, because of His love for man to whom He has given His creation, God put a plan in place for the redemption of man. Genesis 3:15. By creating war between man/generations of men and the serpent/generations of the serpent, God opens a door for the redemption of men in display of His commitment (2 Corinthians 12:15) and love for man (John 3:16)

  6. The Father:
    The first of the trinity in God. We believe He is the only true living God. Who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Integral to our faith in Him, is His everlasting self, Who was before, is now, and will continue to remain infinitely.

  7. Jesus:
    Jesus is our Lord. The one and only true son of God who Himself is God. The only Lord, and our personal savior, who shed His blood on the cross of Calvary to set us free. He is alive and sits on the thrown on the right hand of the Father, acting as intercessor for us/those who trust in Him. We believe He came to Earth, though God, but in the form of man. He was crucified, died, and resurrected to Heaven on the third day in fulfilment of the prophecy.

  8. Holy Spirit:
    We believe in the Holy spirit. The third of the trinity of God. Brings comfort, talents, guides etc.

  9. The Great Commission:
    This is the foundation of the Messiah Family Christian Church. Following resurrection, Jesus appeared to 11 of His disciples in Galilee, and instructed them to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:16-20).

  10. Baptism:
    We believe in the baptism by water and the Holy Spirit as an integral part of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20). It is required by God to be able to do His work (Matthew 3:15).

  11. Rapture:
    We believe, that according to 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Jesus Christ will return for us (both living and dead) who believe in Him and the power of His resurrection, with a commanding shout, and make us immortal, and then take us to the Father forever.

  12. Heaven:
    This is real, and is the ultimate destination for us, as long as we believe in Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith

  13. Hell:
    This is also real. It is the lake of fire that all who continue to disregard the direction of God will end up forever, along with the devil.

  14. Cash For Blessings:
    While we hold no grudge against anyone who decides by personal conviction or is led by the Holy Spirit to give to the work of God, or directly to a spiritual leader, we are opposed to any form of luring of the flock leading to giving (2 Corinthians 9:7). It is satanic to lure(Genesis 3:1, Matthew 4:1-11, Amos 3:5, Judges 16:5, Acts 20:29, Jeremiah 23:16, Ezekiel 13:9, Acts 20:28). This is grounds for dismissal of any spiritual leader at any level of MFCC who engages in such, either directly or by proxy. It is also sinful to allow oneself to be so allured (Genesis 3”1-15, 2 Timothy 4:3-4). He who waits to be told to, or falsely led by mere mortals to give to the work of God (when with knowledge of the value in giving) is just as much in sin as the person that performs the luring.
