ARTICLES OF FAITH

Constitution and Bylaws of

Christian Ministries of the Apostolic Faith Church

Preamble

Whereas, Almighty God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, brought this world forth by the power of His own Word (Gen.1:1-31; 2:1) and has established a record for all mankind through His Holy Scriptures; which is the written Word of God contained in the Holy Bible. (II Tim. 3:16-17)

 

Whereas, God spoke in times past unto the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken unto us by His Son Jesus Christ, whom He sent to be the Savior of the world.              (Heb. 1:1-2; St. John. 3:16-17) It is the express purpose of God, therefore, to call out of the world, a body of people to be saved making them a holy nation; a peculiar people unto Himself by the Gospel of His Son Jesus Christ. (I Pet. 2:9-10) This body of people referred to in the New Testament Scriptures as the body of Christ, the Church, is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone.           (Eph. 2:20-22; I Cor. 3:11)

 

Be It Resolved: That we, being true believers in the body of Christ (Mk. 16:16; Acts 2:38-42),

most assuredly believe that the Holy Bible is the actual written account of God’s Word to mankind and is the end of all controversy. (Rom. 3:4) We also believe that the New Testament Scriptures contain the Apostle’s Doctrine, the doctrine that God gave His Son to give to his Apostles so that the body of Christ would be unified as one body and in one faith through their word. (Jn. 17:6-23; Acts 1:1-2; St. Matt. 28:18-20) Therefore, let it be known that Christian Ministries of the Apostolic Faith Church has the right to use the New Testament Scriptures as their final rule and authority in all operations of this church.               

                                                                                                                     

This constitution, therefore, is being formed to ensure that the ministries of the Christian Ministries of the Apostolic Faith Church will teach, uphold and continue in the Apostle’s Doctrine as contained in the New Testament Scriptures of the Holy Bible and will endeavor to fulfill what  God has ordained in Ephesians 4:11-16.
