FULL GOSPEL FUNDAMENTALS 1 I-223

1. DOCTRINAL UNITY

THE CALL FOR DOCTRINAL UNITY RATHER THAN DIVISIONS

2. THE SCRIPTURES

BOTH THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS ARE VERBALLY INSPIRED OF GOD AND GIVEN AS REVELATION OF GOD'S WORD, WILL, AND WAY TO MANKIND. THE WORD OF GOD IS THE INFALLIBLE AND AUTHORITATIVE RULE OF DOCTRINE AND PRACTICE, SUPERIOR TO CONSCIENCE OR REASON.

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
1 Thessalonians 2:13

GOD'S PROPHECY IS INFALLIBLE

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
2 Peter 1:19

THE WORD OF THE LORD ETERNALLY ENDURES

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Matthew 24:35

3. THE DIVINE GODHEAD

THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE AND LIVING GOD, ETERNALLY SELF-EXISTENT, WHO HAS REVEALED HIMSELF AS FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT. HE IS UNCHANGEABLE, OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT, AND OMNIPRESENT. HE IS THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM, AND TO HIM IS DUE ALL OUR WORSHIP AND OBEDIENCE.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.

See Luke 1:26-35

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 1:1, 14

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
1 Timothy 3:16

JESUS WAS BORN OF A VIRGIN

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

See Isaiah 53:12; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25

5. SALVATION

MAN WAS CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD AND IN A STATE OF INNOCENCE, AS A FREE MORAL AGENT TO CHOOSE AND ACT FOR HIMSELF. ADAM FELL BY VOLUNTARY TRANSGRESSION, RESULTING IN A SIN NATURE, WHICH BRINGS PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL DEATH UPON ALL MEN. ALL MEN ARE LOST, SUBJECT TO ETERNAL JUDGEMENT, AND IN NEED OF SALVATION. SALVATION IS THE GIFT OF GOD, OFFERED TO ALL WHO WILL REPENT FROM SIN, TURNING TO GOD AND EXERCISING FAITH IN CHRIST. WE ARE FORGIVEN THROUGH ATONEMENT OF CHRIST, AND REGENERATED OR BORN AGAIN BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. THE EVIDENCE OF SALVATION IS THE INWARD WITNESS OF THE SPIRIT, LOVE OF THE BRETHREN, AND THE LIFE MANIFESTING THE FRUIT OF A NEW CREATURE.

THE FALL OF MAN INTO MORAL DEPRAVITY.

THE SIN OF ADAM BROUGHT DEATH TO ALL MEN (SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL)

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

A SPIRITUAL REBIRTH

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
John 3:5

SALVATION BY THE MERCY OF GOD AND THE GRACE OF CHRIST, NOT BY HUMAN MERIT OF MAN'S MORALITY.

SIN RESULTS IN DEATH, BUT GOD GIVES LIFE THROUGH CHRIST

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:23

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Ephesians 2:8, 9

Romans 10:9, 10

REPENTANCE TOWARD GOD AND FAITH TOWARD CHRIST

And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shown you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house, Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts 20:20, 21

REPENTANCE, WATER BAPTISM, AND RECEIVING THE HOLY GHOST

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.
Hebrews 6:1

BELIEVE IN CHRIST AND YOU WILL BE SAVED

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Acts 16:31

ALL WHO COME TO CHRIST WILL BECOME NEW CREATURES.

THE SPIRIT ASSURES US THAT WE ARE GOD'S CHILDREN

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
Romans 8:16

WE BECOME A NEW PERSON

And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

6. WATER BAPTISM

NEW CONVERTS ARE TO BE BAPTIZED (BY IMMERSION) IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY GHOST, BY A DIVINELY AUTHORIZED MINISTER OF GOD, AS SOON AS PRACTICAL. THIS IS THE BELIEVER'S IDENTIFICATION WITH CHRIST IN HIS DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION. BAPTISM IS NOT A REQUIREMENT FOR SAVLAVTION, IT IS DONE AS A WITNESS TO THE WORLD OF ENTERING INTO A PERSONAL CHRISTIAN COVENANT WITH CHRIST.

WATER BAPTISM IS BIBLICAL

And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
Acts 10:48

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mark 16:16

THROUGH WATER BAPTISM WE IDENTIFY WITH THE DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION OF CHRIST

Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.
Romans 6:3-5

WE MUST BE BURIED IN THE WATER

Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

JOHN THE BAPTIZER REQUIRED MUCH WATER TO PERFORM BAPTISM

And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
John 3:23

PHILIP AND THE EUNUCH WENT DOWN INTO THE WATER THEN CAME UP AND OUT OF THE WATER

Acts 8:38, 39
