Welcome to the Greater Apostolic Church of Christ

The baptism of the Holy Ghost is promised by God to all who repent and believe.

Our Beliefs

We believe that there is but one God, Creator of heaven and earth, and all mankind, made known to mankind as Father, Creator, source, origin and progenerator of all things and souls, universal Father and Father of Eternity, without body or parts, self-existent, that is, existing of Himself and by Himself, Omniscient, Omnipresent, and Omnipotent; as the Son of Man in redemption-the coming into the world through immaculate conception and virgin birth, thus assuming a personality. He was the Lamb of God, according to the flesh, the very God Himself according to the Spirit; As the Holy Ghost, regenerator and perfector of those who believe. The organizer and element of the Church, the Divine Executor in the world. We believe that we should earnestly contend for God’s standard of salvation, a holy Spirit-filled life in this present world. We believe in the remission of sin by baptism in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We believe that if we live for him in this present world we shall reign with Him when He shall return for His church.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and revelation of God to man, which contains the entire Word of God, and besides which there will be no revelation. It is superior to tradition, though it may contain tradition. It is above conscience and reason although it is not contrary to reason.

 

One God

There is One God, eternal, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, self-sufficient, who has manifested Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Jesus

Jesus is God manifest in the flesh, God incarnate, and is called the Son of God in human relationship

Man’s Fall and Redemption

Man was created in the image of God, but by exercise of His own will, he transgressed the will of God and fell in sin. His only hope of redemption is through Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Salvation

Conditions of Salvation

The conditions of salvation are repentance for sins, faith in the saving grace of Jesus which leads to evidence of this faith, without which evidences the faith is not effectual.

Evidence of Saving Faith

Saving Faith is evidence by water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus and by a life lived in harmony with the principles of God’s Word. (Acts 2:38; 10:47; Romans 6:4)

The Holy Ghost

The baptism of the Holy Ghost is promised by God to all who repent and believe. It is evidenced by the speaking in unknown(or unlearned) tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance.

These statements are to be considered as the minimum beliefs of the members of this church.
