The Spirit and Life Bible Church UK Chapter shares the same mission with Spirit and Life Bible Church Worldwide.
We are a bible believing and teaching Church. We subscribe to all teachings contained within the bible and the following are basic tenets of the bible which we believe and teach in Spirit and Life Bible Church Worldwide.
Unity of God (Godhead)
This consists of three persons: God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy
Ghost, perfectly united as one indivisible God. (Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 28:19, 1 John 5:7).
Deity of God
That Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God sent from heaven by the Father, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born by the virgin Mary, was baptized, taught us about the Father and heaven, was crucified, died on the cross, was buried, rose from the dead ascended into heaven and will come a second time to earth to take the redeemed to heaven where He has gone to prepare a place for them. (Mark 16:19, 1 Corinthians 15:4, John 14:23).
We Believe in Holy and Righteous Living (Sanctification)
Through the unadulterated word of God which is truth (John 17:16-17) it says that sanctification is of the whole life: Spirit, Soul and Body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Sanctification is a progressive work of grace (Acts 20:32, 1 Corinthians 6:11).
Holiness in The Church
2Corinthians 11:2, Ephesians 5:17. Repentance from and confession of sins as a first step in entering into the family and kingdom of God. Baptism of water unto repentance and confession of sins. (Matthew 3:11, Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 19:3-4). The significance of which is that we are baptised into Christ’s death and are buried with Him and raised from the dead by the glory of the Father to walk in the newness of life (Romans 6:3-4). Therefore baptism should be by immersion in a river.
That Salvation is a Free Gift of God
Salvation is a free gift of God to believers by grace through obedient faith in Christ Jesus (Titus 2:11-12, Romans 1:5, Ephesians 2:5-8). That salvation is the act whereby God forgives our sins and makes us to stand before Him as though we had never sinned.
Baptism of The Holy Spirit
For the endowment of power from heaven and is evidenced by speaking in tongues as the spirit gives utterance and for living holy lives unto good works and witness for Jesus. (Acts 1:8, Luke 24:24, Acts 10:38).
The Full Complement of the Gifts of The Holy Spirit
1Corinthians 12:1, Romans 12:3-9). Regeneration as a spiritual experience which comes from above and which quickens us together with Christ, the evidence of which is the fruit of the Spirit. (Ephesians 2:1-5, 1John 3:14, Galatians 5:22-23).
Divine Healing of the Soul (All Manners of Sickness and Diseases)
Which comes through the atonement and by anointing oil (if necessary).(Mark 6:13, James, 5:14-16, 1Peter 2:24).
That Marriage is for Life as an Institution that God Himself Ordained
God meant marriage to be a means of mutual love and procreation between one man and one woman.(Mark 10:6-12, Romans 7:1-3).
As a necessary step after we have been saved in order to make peace with man (Matthew 5:23-24).
The Lord’s Supper
As an ordinance instituted by Jesus Christ as a constant reminder of His death until He returns (Matthew 26:26-29, 1 Corinthians 11:26). Spirit and Life Bible Church Worldwide conducts this as a separate service once every two months (8 weeks).
Second Coming of Jesus Christ
As an event, which is very imminent and which will be as literal and visible as His going away; first to make home His spotless Church and secondly to execute judgement upon the ungodly. (Acts 1:9-11 1Thessalonians 4:15-17, 2Thessalonians 1:7-10).
The Great Commission upon Salvation
It becomes mandatory upon every believer to go and teach and preach the gospel to all nations. Failure to do so amounts to disobedience; and all disobedience is sin. (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-18, 1Corinthains 9:16-17). Heaven is the final destination of all believers (John 14:1-3).
