WHAT WE BELIEVE

Outlaw Bible Church is an independent Bible believing Baptist Church. Our beliefs are as follows:

We believe in one true God which manifests himself in three ways: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe the three (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) are one. (I John 5:7; Matthew 3:16-1; Matthew 28:19)

We believe all Scripture was given by verbal, complete and infallible inspiration of God (2 Timothy 3:16) and that God promised to preserve every word of what He inspired (Ps 12:6-7, Matthew 5:18). We hold to and teach from the Authorized Version (The King James Bible) as the standard for English speaking people and believe we find within it the certainty of the words of God's divine truth for our lives (Proverbs 22:20-21). We have found through an in depth study and comparison of bible versions and their history that the AV 1611 is accurate when it comes to having sound doctrine for our lives and our church. This is way we have chosen to use this version of the Bible.

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is literally God in human form (I Timothy 3:16). He was conceived by the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35) in the womb of a virgin named Mary (Isaiah 7:14). We believe Jesus was tempted by Satan in every physical way, yet lived a sinless life (Matthew 4: 1-11; Hebrews 4:15; 1 John 2:16). We believe Jesus allowed Himself to be crucified to pay the penalty for all our sins thus giving us a way to have a relationship with God (Romans 5:11-21). Jesus not only died but literally rose again from the grave on the third day in bodily form according to the scriptures ( I Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus now sits on the right hand of God the Father in heaven (Colossians 3:1).

We believe the Holy Spirit is God and the current, earthly manifestation of God. He, in the form of the Holy Spirit, dwells within the body of the believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. (I Corinthians 3:16; John 16:7) He seals the believer and baptizes (immerses) him into the body of Christ at the moment of salvation (I Corinthians 12:13) with the goal of teaching God's Word and conforming the believer to the very image of Christ (Ephesians 1:3-14; I Corinthians 2:9-16; II Corinthians 3:17-18). We believe all spiritual blessings are received at the time of salvation (Ephesians 1:3), and the Spirit gives gifts to every believer as He, the Spirit, wills so the believer might effectively communicate the love of Christ (I Corinthians 12-13). We do not believe that today's modern "tongues movement" is scriptural (I Corinthians 14).

We believe Satan is a real, historical being, a fallen cherub who was lifted up in pride and rebelled against God, leading an army of angelic beings with him (Isaiah 14:12-17). His defeat was sealed by the work of Christ on the cross (Hebrews 2:14). His final destiny is the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).

We believe the Genesis account of creation is historical, not symbolical, allegorical or figurative. We believe Adam was an historical person, created by the direct act of God and in His image (Genesis 1-2). Adam chose to sin against God through the free will God gave him and reaped the consequences -- the wages of death. As the originator of the human race, Adam passed his sinful nature to all mankind (Romans 5:12). All men are sinners by birth and become sinners in experience (Romans 3) for which the wages are death (Romans 6:23).

We believe salvation is by God's grace alone on the basis of the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and in His resurrection. We believe that to inherit salvation it is by the faith of anyone who will personally believe in his heart and confess with his mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10). We believe the act of salvation is just as definite and decisive as physical birth (John 3:1-7). We believe this salvation cannot be reversed or lost and believers are kept by the power of God (John 10:28-29; 1 John 2:19; Romans 8:35-39 1 Peter 1:5).

We believe the local assembly of believers (the church) is God's vehicle to accomplish his work in this age. Most of the references to the word "church" in scripture applies to a local, visible assembly of believers (Ephesians. 1:22-23; Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Timothy 3:1-15). At the Second Coming of Christ, all genuine believers from the time of Christ's ascension will be united together as the Body of Christ (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 19:7-8; Revelation 21:2). Until then, it is the responsibility of each local church to continue in evangelism, discipleship, and missions both independently and interdependently (Matthew 28:18-20).

We believe each local assembly should be as self-governing, self-supporting, and self-propagating as possible, practicing the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Table and operating under the leadership of those who hold the office of pastor (also known as ''bishop'' or ''elder'') and assisted by those who hold the office of deacon (Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Hebrews 13:17).

We believe every member of the local church has the responsibility to minister the Word of God and support the ministry through prayer, holy living, tithes, and offerings and sacrificial giving (I Corinthians 16:2; Malachai 3:10; Acts 4:34-37; II Corinthians 8:7; Acts 2:41-47; Acts 13:1-4; II Corinthians 8:1-5, II Samuel 24:24, Mark 12:41-44).

We believe in the literal, physical return of Jesus Christ to the earth in power and great glory to judge the world and reign (Acts 1:11; II Thessalonians 1:7-10). We believe shortly before Christ's Second Coming, all genuine believers will be raptured out to meet the Lord in the air (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52) followed by a seven-year period of tribulation on earth during which time God will judge His people (nation of Israel) and all without Christ (I Thessalonians 5:1-11; Matthew 24). That period of tribulation will end with Christ's personal return to rule for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-6; Matthew 25:31-46).

We believe all men will spend eternity either with Christ or eternally separated from Him. We believe that those who never receive Christ as saviour (the lost) will die and wait in a literal physical Hell for the day of final judgment where they will be assigned to the proper degree of punishment in a literal lake of fire (Revelation 20:11-15). We believe those who have accepted Christ as savior will experience a bodily resurrection to everlasting life (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-58).
